The Republican Party were more than a little surprised on Tuesday night when far right-wing Christian and Tea Party member Christine O’Donnell won the primary vote in Delaware. Running against nine-term incumbent Rep. Michael Castle, the 41 year old Christine O’Donnell, whom many in Delaware think is more than a little crazy, will be the Republican nominee in November’s election – thus all but guaranteeing a win for her Democratic opponent. Bad enough a right-wing lunatic has the GOP nominee but that Delaware voters voted for someone who lies, cheats and steals, and once said she wouldn’t lie to Adolf Hitler, says a lot about how many stupid people there are in Delaware. If you knew the real truth about Christine O’Donnell you’d think they were stupid too.
At 41 years old, Christine O’Donnell has never been married. However, she’s apparently an expert on marriage, as she recently stated masturbation is wrong and anyone who is married and masturbates is “cheating” on their spouse.
At 41 years old, Christine O’Donnell also never seems to have held a job. Last year, she reported an income of $5,800 to the IRS then, later, told a reporter she made a lot more than that but wasn’t going to tell the IRS that. It was none of their business. So while hardworking Americans, who are barely making ends meet, not only work but pay taxes on the money they make, Christine O’Donnell isn’t working, but is somehow getting money, money she refuses to pay taxes on. But where is the money coming from?
According to her ex-campaign manager, who resigned once she found out the truth about Christine O’Donnell, the money O’Donnell lives on is campaign financing money that she’s using to pay rent, utilities and bills. Money that, by law, Christine O’Donnell cannot use for personal expenses and that, if her donors asked for it back, she would legally be required to return it.
Christine O’Donnell also owns a house, a house which she doesn’t live in as it has a lien on it for non-payment of her mortgage. She also owes $11,744 to the IRS for back-taxes she never paid, and it took her 20 years to get her university degree as she owed tuition money to the university she couldn’t pay. No tuition money, no degree certificate. Simple.
Christine O’Donnell however says she knows how to turn Delaware around, how to create jobs and how to ensure the state can pay its bills – funny, coming from a woman who’s never held a job and can’t pay her own bills.
One of the worst things about Christine O’Donnell though is the comment she made on Bill Maher’s show “Politically Incorrect” a few years ago.
When asked if she would ever lie, O’Donnell said “No” (which is fascinating, as O’Donnell has done nothing but lie about her financial background for years). Comedian Eddie Izzard then asked her, “What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, ‘do you have any Jewish people in your house?’ and you do have them. That would be a lie”.
O’Donnell said she wouldn’t lie, even to a Nazi. A fact I’m sure her Jewish constituents in Delaware are thrilled about.
Christine O’Donnell is such a nutcase that former-Bush Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, came out on national TV yesterday saying Christine O’Donnell’s win in the primaries on Tuesday has now ensured a victory for her Democratic candidate, a view Christine O’Donnell ‘refudiates’ (she’s a Sarah Palin-backed candidate).
But, as many of the fine people of Delaware showed on Tuesday night when they gave victory to Christine O’Donnell, many of them are plain stupid. Time will tell if Karl Rove is correct or if Delawarians will vote for a liar, a thief, a cheat and someone who would hand over a Jew to Hitler.
