First Amendment + jurisprudence, of course, since it doesn't literally say "you gotta keep 'em separated'.

Fuck, it's so embarrasing. It's exactly like Palin, watching a kid try and fake their book report, except it's going to be your tax dollars.

this is an 'outsider' candidate not embraced by the mainstream GOP
most all agree that she will lose big.

Except she's a Tea Party person and their whole mantra was to protect the constitution......

That's all we've heard from these types (most of all Mama Grizzly).

I'm all for getting new blood into washington, people with good ideas, maybe not to just look after themselves, but have some progress. Whether it's limiting government spending, or trying to get affordable healthcare to everyone....

but these people like Christine and Sarah are just flat out morons who would probably do great having their own little radio show to spew their ignorance and stupidity, but not be in charge of our country.

I would be willing to bet that Christine's issues will mirror Sarah Palin's if she tries to run for office.

Eh. . .if you listen closely, it sounds more to me like O'Donnell is trying to make the point (a tired one granted, that I've heard trotted out by Christian conservatives before) that the phrase "seperation of church and state" does not appear in the first amendment or anywhere else in the constitution.

I was more aghast it her general lack of knowledge of the Constitution. I didn't feel her references to the 16th and especially the 14th amendment were partiuclarly accurate at all. If I recall, the 14th amendment does not address illegal immigration at all.

"Constitution" is just a buzzword for this crowd, they don't actually get it or understand it.

well, the fact is she had to be told what the 16th was. She pulled the same crap on that CNN debate where they asked her about any supreme court rulings that she's against and couldn't name any. Just like Sarah.

I'll give her this though, she was at least honest and said she didn't know or couldn't think of any. Sarah did the sly talk around the point over and over.

I actually feel sorry for Christine.

I agree, but if you list around 5:58 he goes into explanation of the verbage and she still seems lost.

this tea party candidate will not win, but others will.


The GOP will go from 41 Senators to at least 48 perhaps 50.

with the GOP pick up there will be 4 or more tea party Senators.

5 will be a powerful block. they will wield quite a bit of power. If the Dems have a majority of 50-52, the GOP will still control the Senate, legislatively.

I think dismissing them (tea party) and labeling them kooks is a mistake.

until they actually show they're capable of coming up with ideas, or removing their idiotic branch of the party, they are a bunch of kooks.
