A man has claimed to have a one-night stand with Tea Party favorite, Christine O’Donnell. The article was published at Gawker (read I Had a One-Night Stand with Christine O’Donnell) and has received heavy controversy on Twitter.
It’s a funny story, obviously not true. The story takes place on Halloween night three years ago and showcases a drunk and horny Christine O’Donnell. So what? It can’t be that ‘out there’ from the real O’Donnell.
But Twitter, as I mentioned, was abuzz with criticism.
Those tweeters will lambast a writer and won’t relent until he turns off his computer. Meghan McCain was one of the sillier Twitter shouters, posting tweets such as:
“Wow gawker, just wow. This is the exact reason why women don’t want to run for office in this country. Posting that is vile and disgusting” (read Christine O’Donnell One Night Stand: Twitter Reactions).
As if anybody running for office in this country wouldn’t be victim to heavy scrutiny and ugly character bashing. Meghan McCain is boring, that’s all I will say. This is hardly an issue about the gender binary.
Was Gawker right or wrong to post such a nasty article about Christine O’Donnell?
At first I wanted to be on Gawker’s side. Hey, the story is funny, and nobody is supporting it, so I’ll support it.
Then, I read the story, and I thought, this is sort of vile and even Christine O’Donnell doesn’t deserve this.
And then, my final comment on it is realizing how much ‘fiction’ revolves around Christine O’Donnell. That woman can’t tell the truth about anything, it seems. O’Donnell has made more outrageous claims and fictions than most of my favorite writers. She is full of shit.
So why not? Write something nasty about her. Place Christine O’Donnell in your own fiction. She’s not afraid to lie, cheat, and be dishonest. And she claims to represent America, and God.
Any publicity is good publicity, after all. Well, maybe not for O’Donnell as ‘Politician’.
