Christine O’Donnell: “I Didn’t Go To Yale” Also, Still Not A Witch

Christine O’Donnell is out with the second ad of the General Election campaign and this one is as odd as the first.

We’ve still got the weird bluish/floating cloud background with the black dress, so it’s pretty clear this was filmed on the same day as the “I’m Not A Witch” ad. There’s a lot that could be said about this ad, such as the subtle dig at intellectualism by pointing out she didn’t go to an Ivy League college or the way she tries to equate her own bizarre financial problems to the economic problems of average Delawareans. What stand out to me, though, is that the “I’m You” tag line. It really does strike me as the strangest political slogan I’ve ever heard.

Given the fact that O’Donnell clearly isn’t going to win this race, these ads aren’t really newsworthy. Like a multi-car accident on the side of the road, though, one cannot help but look.

    She didn’t go to Oxford, either. Oops.
    Wow, this campaign will go down as a textbook example of what not to do at every opportunity… even Dukakis didn’t screw up this massively.

    You’re not me, Christine. It didn’t take me twenty years to finish my undergraduate degree, and I don’t claim to have attended schools that have never heard of me. I am not, however, a witch, so we’ve got that in common.

    Voyeurism you mean…with a funny side.

    Why do so many wingnuts talk in their own code that no one else understands? We don’t think you’re cool or funny, just nonsensical twits.

    Speak Your Mind: I guess I misunderstood the Caption.

    Wing nuts: Useful fastener for Aviation Panels etc. 🙂

    I think discovery has revealed the facts. 🙂

    After all you have “Speak your Mind” 🙂

    Like I said: nonsense.

    Better nonsense, but Lennon had the assistance of LSD.

    What type of aircraft have you been working on? Did it have a canvas covering?

    Did it have a canvas covering? Two wheels up front, tail skid, and Canvas all around:)
