Here's more info on her. While reading this, I wondered if she is really batshit insane or is pretending to be one just to get attention.

I could very well see it being the latter, because some of those positions are just so out there that you'd almost have to think it's a farce (and if it is, okay, haha, cute, joke's over now, time to get back to being serious. You're not a comedian, you're running to take a place in government).

On the other hand, though, there are people out there who genuinely do think like she does. And if she truly thinks this way, she gives Sarah Palin a run for her money-good lord, some of those viewpoints . If she's THAT paranoid and strict and uptight, one wonders why she even bothers to leave her house. Sounds like, according to her, society's just one big cesspool of horrors waiting to be unleashed, waiting to corrupt her oh-so-pure soul (and now you just know there's gotta be some "sin" in her past).

My favorite bit in that link was her comment that homosexuals are allowed to get away with nudity more often. WTF? Yeah, 'cause I'm seeing so much of it all over the place .

I don't understand how any sentient being could vote for someone like Christine O'Donnell. I mean, this, for example:

Quote:
O`DONNELL: The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So, you can`t masturbate without lust.

The reason that you don`t tell them that masturbation is the answer to AIDS and all these other problems that come with sex outside of marriage is because, again, it is not addressing the issue. You`re going to be pleasing each other. And if he already knows what pleases him and he can please himself, then why am in the picture?"
You have a 41-year-old woman who swore to celibacy at some point in college and who doesn't masturbate instructing the rest of us on sex. I mean really it's akin to Catholic priests who give those marriage classes about natural birth control to couples about to get married in the Church. Absurd.

She comes across as someone who is really trying a bit too hard to make her life seem interesting. My first date was on a Satanic altar too after a movie but I don't feel the need to go around bragging about it. She was Twilight before Twilight was cool.

(CNN) – Newly-minted Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell – who already has had to contend with a string of controversial statements she has made in the past – once said she “dabbled into witchcraft.”

The latest eyebrow-raising comment was revealed Friday by liberal comedian and talk show host Bill Maher, who, as host of the now-canceled show “Politically Incorrect,” had O’Donnell on his program several times as a guest.

“I dabbled into witchcraft - I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. ... I dabbled into witchcraft,” O’Donnell said during a 1999 appearance on the show, which ran from 1994-2002 on ABC. “I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do.”

She then described one of her first dates – with a witch “on a satanic altar.”

“I didn't know it,” she said. “I mean, there's little blood there and stuff like that. We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”

Maher showed the clip Friday on his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and pledged to unveil additional clips every week if O’Donnell does not appear on his current show.

A spokesman for the O’Donnell campaign did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.

I have long formed the view that (although he can correct me if I'm wrong) Iron Horse's libertarianism is really just knee-jerk old-timey conservatism/populism. If it seems vaguely rightwing in a way that grandpa walton might be down with, then it gets a tick.

Thank you so much for your summary of my poliical view on life.


I'm just getting in from feeding the pigs and checking on the chickens.


Take care all

You said the same thing about Palin in 08, for our sake I hope your finger on the pulse stays correct.

Please tell us, what is the "left" missing here?

You seem to still be missing it.

Palin easily added 5+% to the McCain voters in 2008.
A McCain/ Romney ticket would have been a much bigger win for Obama.

Palin has had a great year. She has more power now than any of her detractors in 2008 ever expected her to have. They predicted she would fade away and be irrelevant. Who has had a bigger impact in the 2010 primaries?

When the GOP pick up seats in the Senate and House there will be several Palin GOPers there in place of the more pragmatic GOP centrists.

Very few predicted Palin would be irrelevant, just unelectable.

Harry kept telling us that "we" were the reason Palin was going to be elected. He got it wrong.

Now IN CONTEXT can you tell me what I am missing?
