It’s Time To Start Ignoring Christine O’Donnell

There are three new polls out today in the Delaware Senate Race:

There are three weeks left until Election Day. While it’s possible that O’Donnell may gain some ground between now and then, there’s no realistic chance she’s going to win. So, unless they just want to spend the next three weeks covering a clown in a media circus, perhaps it’s time for the political press to leave Delaware and move on to states like Connecticut, Wisconsin, and West Virginia where there’s actually still a race going on.

    Ignore? When I suggested in these pages that Christine O’Donnell was where the Tea Party jumped the shark I got some pushback 🙂

    This could still be fun.

  2. Frank Jones says:

    Christine O’Donnell is simply one in a long line of cynical candidates brought to us by the cognitive distortion of the so-called ‘tea party’ movement. Purported to be a “grassroots” movement, what it really is is an assault on truthful discourse funded by ultra-conservative forces (the Koch brothers among them).

    History will not shine kindly on this scam, nor should it. In the meantime, keep tabs on the latest tea party shenanigans on this satire page:

    Oh, come now…we need to find comic relief wherever we can…Sarah Palin is only good for so much…

    How can I ignore her? She’s not a witch. She’s me.

    I like this idea. Why don’t we try it here at OTB and set a positive example for others?
