LOL! Right on sister! Though I agree with Maerzie that O'Donnell is the smarter of the two. O'Donnell is also more articulate than Palin. Palin, to her credit, knows very well how to separate a sucker from his wallet.

Ann~~~Kind of funny. I am a man so what do I know. But are you making fun of women in politics? Why isn't Hillary Clinton supporting the Chinese dissident who won the Nobel Peace Prize? I thought Human rights were a big issue with her in the past. What's changed? She is now in the perfect position to make her point concerning those type of issues.

You could pick any tea partier at random and they would do a better job of running the USA than the current book brilliant incompetents.

I actually think O'Donnell is a TAD smarter than Palin. Give her a couple years. Sarah is almost 6 years OLDER so has had much more time in politics, but is STILL stupid. In adulthood, six extra YEARS is like a lifetime! The problem with O'Donnell, besides being a nutcase, is that you just don't START at the TOP! sarah is trying, but we have had ample time to see that she simply DOESN'T have it. She's a lame brain!

Good job Ann,
According to Plato who wrote the Republic Statesmen were intended to be trained from their childhood up to be knowledgeable civil servants that were not allowed to have wealth or to accept tributes.
Now the Republicans are bought and paid for by the Corporations and have no idea as to what is required of a good Statesmen.

Senator O'Donnell, you know it's going to happen when they have to send the entire White House to Delaware to try to save at least one Democrat Senate seat. Do not fear they couldn't even bring the Olympics home to Chicago.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Never thought that we would be faced with candidates who make Georgie Boy Bush look as if he has a modicum of gray-cells.

GOP win ? - God forbid!

The POINT of THIS election IS NOT to find a SOCRATES for the ReBooblicans in the U.S.Senate.

The POINT of THIS election is to EVISCERATE the Deem-n-RAT Party to the greatest degree possible by DESTROYING their POLITICAL BASE of FILTHY PROGRESSIVE INCUMBENTS in Washington.

Christine will FOLLOW THE ReBooblican LEADERSHIP in Congress and THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH.

I am one of the little people, 68, widowed and far from rich. so watch your name calling. the only people that deserve name calling are the greedy B & B's that sent jobs to now rich China and see that the Repubs fight to keep the rich tax break.
Remember that years ago a rich hotel owner told her maid "only the little people pay taxes".

Several aspects and the results of O’Donnell’s current and past candidacies are similar to those of perennial conservative Republican placeholder candidate Alan Keys (i.e., able to garner publicity, contributions and primary victories by espousing conservative values, positions and slogans but no realistic chance of winning a general election) with the main distinction being the existence of the Tea Party Movement significantly increases the money available for her to spend on the campaign -- or not. O’Donnell is like Alan Keys on steroids with the additional difference that she often is the first to laughs at her own jokes as if to plea for sympathy ( e.g., please join me in laughing).

It's not bullying to ask a candidate for the United State Senate to back up her public statements with examples. If O'Donnell wants to be one of the 100 elect, she better come with more than a wink and smile.

Who said the O'Donnell and Palin are like empty barrels? You strike them and they make a big sound, but have nothing inside.

It's embarassing the way the liberal media, WPO included, as well as the liberal elites, make fun of O'donnel. I for one watched the so called "debate" between O'Donnel and the tag team of Blitzer, Coons, and some unknown news person, and felt the she more than stood her ground. Blitzer asker her questions something like "which supreme court justice do you think is the least effective? and then throw a soft pitch to Coons like "who do you think is the president?". As I said, it's embarrasing to see bullies picking on a weaker person but that's exactly what happened. For the WPO & the other liberal rags to publish every little fault they can about O'Donnell. We, the little people, recognize it for what it is. Bullying. Most Americans don't appreciate kicking the under dog when it's down. You and Coons can go ahead and glory in your power but keep that in mind.

This is not a surprise since her advisers are the same ones that advise Palin! She is another example of a list of candidates who are ill-informed, uninformed and poorly prepared. Well done Anne, you have said in one cartoon what would have taken many words.

Christine, great answer, in this case silence was golden. Your three opponents blizter, marxists and the unknown woman wanted you to opine so the likes of Dinonne, Marxcus, Parker and Robinson could have something to write about.
