VIDEO of Christine O'Donnell: I'm going to stop the whole country from having sex

A Democratic source unearths video of Christine O'Donnell in 2003, answering clearly and unequivocally in the affirmative when asked: "You're going to stop the whole country from having sex?"

At the time, O'Donnell was with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, a conservative group she later sued for gender discrimination. The exchange, on Scarborough Country on November 13, 2003, is an argument between O'Donnell and Eric Nies, then with the Moment of Hope foundation, about whether to counsel kids to have safe sex:

NIES: I tell them to be careful. You have to wear a condom. You have to protect yourself when you're going to have sex, because they're having it anyway.

NIES: There's nothing that you or me can do about it.

O'DONNELL: The sad reality is -- yes, there is something you can do about it. And the sad reality, to tell them slap on a condom is not --

NIES: You're going to stop the whole country from having sex?

O'DONNELL: Yeah. Yeah!

NIES: You're living on a prayer if you think that's going to happen.

O'DONNELL: That's not true. I'm a young woman in my thirties and I remain chaste.

This exchange has been written about before here and there. But this is the first time video has surfaced of it, making it likely that it will get another round of coverage and some airing on cable, since it reveals rather clearly how ambitious and zealous her abstinence crusade really was.

OT:

HuffPo:

Connecticut Republican Linda McMahon's campaign is pushing back against a Thursday report that she would consider voting to eliminate the Department of Education, Department of Energy and, possibly, the Environmental Protection Agency.

The former WWE header reportedly told a Tea Party crowd back in April 2010 that she was positively disposed towards dismantling those three government agencies, according to a story in the Connecticut Mirror. Democrats pounced on the report, citing it as evidence that McMahon had forfeited principle in the hope of currying favor with conservative activists.

Republicans are all about freedom. Like for instance, the freedom to ban sex and regulate people's bedrooms.

People who read books (ie not Republicans) may remember in George Orwell's 1984 that the totalitarian state sponsored a youth movement called, if I remember rightly, the Youth Anti-Sex League.

I think the GOP should consider forming a Youth wing by that name. They could all wear little uniforms - Republicans love uniforms.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the O'Donnell campaign spawned a pro-s*x movement? Up until now I'd say there has been no need for such, but if O'Donnell wins (fat chance) she will be a member of the US Senate and able to push anti s*x legislation.

People, we need to fight for our right to f@ck!

Usually I consider protests to be not my thing, regardless of purpose. Giant puppets and racist signs do nothing for me. But a pro-s*x rally? Well, that is a bit different;)

Indeed it is. But one can't let that mess up the critique of those backwoods, superstitious hicks (and those that vote for them). ;)

"Is is chastity if it's not voluntary?"

Yes. Yes, it is.

@kenonwenu: " Like for instance, the freedom to ban sex and regulate people's bedrooms."

Um, I've been a Republican since I started voting. I don't support banning sex. In fact, sex is a positive. Encouraging kids to wait is a positive, too, and I've never gotten the part about how kids shouldn't be "sneaking around" and "doing it without their parents knowing". Good golly. I certainly wouldn't have wanted my parents to know when I lost my virginity.

"People who read books (ie not Republicans)"

Seriously. Republicans don't read books? Really? I don't read as much as I used to, but, dude, I've read thousands of books in my life.

"may remember in George Orwell's 1984 that the totalitarian state sponsored a youth movement called, if I remember rightly, the Youth Anti-Sex League."

He's also wrote a book called Animal Farm. You should read it sometime. He also wrote a book called "Keep the Aspidistra Flying". Everybody should read that.

"think the GOP should consider forming a Youth wing by that name. They could all wear little uniforms - Republicans love uniforms."

Well

The witchcraft thing and the altar at midnight probably did about as much damage as was going to be done with these videos. Right now it is an expectations games - if Christine meets expectations in the videos, she is OK. Bill Mayer says he has more, let's see what they say.


___________________________________

Well - interesting numbers on the Michael Castle write-in - THEY COULD ACTUALLY HELP CHRISTINE O'DONNELL.

First, having Mike Castle in the race energizes Christine O'Donnell's base - no one is going to stay home because they think she is too far behind in the polls.

THEN a funny thing happens - Mike Castle draws his votes BACK FROM Coons.

That helps Christine O'Donnell. This becomes very similar to the Florida three-way race.


Christine O'Donnell is at 39% - there is little reason to think she is going up from there in a three-way race.


ALSO, there is little reason to believe she is going to go down from there very much - she is pretty much at 39%.


So it is the Republicans and moderates who will be drawn from Coons.


Can Mike Castle draw 25% in a write-in? Probably yes. Those are polls saying he would win against Coons - so voters would go from Coons to Castle.

Well - that would leave Coons with 36% of the vote.


Christine O'Donnell wins in that situation. If Christine O'Donnell can stay around 40% in a write-in, she will probably win.

I kind of like Christine O'Donnell's chances in a write-in.


Why would anyone think that Mike Castle is there helping Coons? He is not.

Mike Castle in a write-in could actually help Christine O'Donnell win. It gets tricky obviously.

The thing is this: If Castle jumps in, it certainly is NOT helping Coons - it puts Coons in jeopardy because he is in the lead right now.


Castle could be doing it to help the Republicans and Christine O'Donnell. Maybe he thinks he can win himself.

But the truth is that if Mike Castle pulls in between 23% to 38% of the vote, he is probably drawing enough votes away from Coons to have Christine O'Donnell win.

Extremely interesting - I am wondering what the internal polling is showing - and what Castle's motives would be - he could jump in just to help the National Republicans -


Go for it Mike Castle.

OK, let's talk about the GOP Pledge -

Indeed, the agenda promises nothing more than a return to the Bush Administration’s failed economic policies and the big business agenda. Even right-wing pundit Erick Erickson notes the agenda’s content proves “that the House GOP has not learned much of anything from 2006.” In responding to Boehner’s “we’re not any different” comment, Stewart said “I believe that’s a promise you can keep.”

Couple this nonsense with the false charges of racism, islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia and it is obvious that the left holds in contempt the very people the movement needs to advance its agenda.

I'm glad that you asked. Christine O'Donnell believes that jobs are created when businesses are freed from endless taxes and bureaucratic red tape. She also believes heaping trillions in debt on the backs of our grandchildren is immoral and that Congress is elected to make the hard choices to preserve our nation’s future prosperity. Christine O'Donnell will fight to remove the crushing tax burden faced by American families and businesses and dramatically simplify the tax code.
__________________
well that sure clears it up. she's going to cut taxes by trillions and still cut the deficit by triillions. so where is she going to get the bazillions in spending cuts to pull that off? she could eliminate all the agencies and not put a dent in the spending problems. and we sure need fewer regulations on mine safety, egg production, deep sea drilling and credit default swap speculation. there's a formula for economic growth all right. she's a collection of meaningless bumper sticker slogans dumber than the GOP Pledge, which also says we'll add 4 Trillion in tax cuts, look for 100 Billion in spending cuts (cause we sure wouldn't want to pick anything specific just yet) and hint at making the deficit go away by gutting Social Security and Medicare while trying not to look like they said that.

Coons crushes O'Donnell in new Delaware Senate poll

Embattled Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell of Delaware, who has been hammered by critics and even fellow Republicans for a series of gaffes, trails Democratic nominee Chris Coons by a wide margin, a new poll shows.

Coons holds a 54 percent to 39 percent lead over O'Donnell in a survey conducted by Pulse Opinion Research for FOX News. Two percent of respondents said they will vote for another candidate, while 5 percent said they weren't sure.

* Senate debates tax increases on companies that move jobs overseas *

The Democratic corporate tax bill includes three provisions. One would end tax deductions that companies may take for expenses incurred when they shutter a U.S. operation and shift the work abroad. The second would impose an income tax on products once made in the U.S. but now manufactured by foreign workers. The third measure would provide a payroll tax incentive for companies to create American jobs by shifting overseas operations back to the U.S.

[...]

Business groups are strongly opposed to the Democratic proposal, as McConnell noted on the Senate floor Friday morning when he raised a procedural objection to Reid's maneuver, forcing a Tuesday vote.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/09/24/AR2010092403293.html

The idea that anyone in here would still be defending Christine is insane. The republicans in here with their talking points and fall in line attitude is worrisome. Imagine republicans if this was a democrat and not a republican, what attacks the GOp would be launching. First they would try to take away her or his citizenship and than try to have the democrat candidate put in an insane asylum. Than if that didn't work, they would try to have the candidate removed from the ballot..You republicans sicken me with your double standards. No christine is a whack job plain and simple. Withcraft, the picnic, mice with altered human...And now she will stop young americans from having sex..If this is not just crazy than this country has lost a part of society to the abyss. I don't care how much republicans want power back but to say that christine is not insane makes your party not trustworthy to be in power. The abstinence issue should be left to the parents to discuss with their young adults in their family not for some politician to make it an election issue. And how can republicans talk about family issues when within their own ranks they are sleeping with hookers..You know Vitter, Esing, Newt, Rush, Sanford and the list goes on. So I don't buy it from either party and especially from Christine. Chrisitne is just going through talking points thats all about her conservative fiscal views, she doesn't live the values of fiscal conservatism. She skips out on her debt, gets sued and so on. She is as much as a conservative as President Obama is a tea party fan. So republicans go on with your talking points in defending Chrisitne and watch the voters in Delaware send her packing but she can always go to work for Fox, they like crazy people like her.

O'Donnell HAS shared what policies she will pursue.

Jobs -- Believes jobs are created when businesses are freed from endless taxes and bureaucratic red tape.

Security -- Believes terrorism is an act of war requiring the full force of our intelligence and military resources rather than granting terrorists precious Constitutional rights and outsourcing our foreign policy to the U.N.

Debt -- Believes heaping trillions in debt on the backs of our grandchildren is immoral and that Congress is elected to make the hard choices to preserve our nation’s future prosperity.

Taxes -- Will fight to remove the crushing tax burden faced by American families and businesses and dramatically simplify the tax code.

Life -- Strongly believes in protecting the sanctity of life at ALL stages.

Energy -- Supports a market-based approach to energy solutions that will keep competition high and energy prices low.

Values -- Believes our country was founded on core values of faith, family and freedom and will fight to defend those values. Will always fight for maximum choice for parents about where to educate their kids, including private, parochial and charter schools or in the home.

Spending -- Believes unrestrained government spending is eroding our freedom, destroying our economy and ceding our sovereignty to foreign debt- holders like China.

Accountability -- Denounces corrupt pork-barrel politics, including earmarks, and will fight for increased transparency and performance information for every Federal program.

Healthcare -- Believes that the solution to the healthcare crisis is less government meddling in the doctor/patient relationship, more competition in the insurance market and more choice for families about their health plan.

Gun Control -- Christine’s strong support of 2nd Amendment rights has earned her an “A” rating from the NRA.

O'Donnell is not only a liar and hypocrite (two of the most cherised traits of any conservative) she's a thief who used campaign funds to pay her rent but not her student loans.

So Christians will vote for a self-acclaimed witch? I guess I was right they're not really Chritian they just use that as a way to get votes while they entertain joining covens and court membership in the Skulls.

You can legislate what happens to a person before they're 21 but you can't stop them from having sex before or after.

The Repubs and tea baggers talk about big government but this idiot wants the government to stop people from having sex?

The good people in Delaware cannot be stupid enough to vote for this woman oh sorry chaste woman. I don't believe her lies for a moment. Let's subject her to a virginity test.

I wish people from the left and the right would just understand one thing: O'Donnell is a publicity hustler. The Scarborough appearance, the Bill Maher shows were all attempts to establish herself as a figure in the new media landscape where we make TV stars out of the people who can spit out the most offspring. Her shtick was to be the nutty, zany, but cute, anti-sex zealot in her early 30s.

I don't believe she took it seriously. But I also don't think she believed she would ever be the Republican nominee for the Senate. Her previous campaigns, it is becoming increasingly obvious, were just a way for an unemployed hustler to get some money to live on. She was such an outlier that no one bothered looking into her campaign finances when the races were over.

But that's all changed now. Now she has to explain all the video footage of her saying provocative things in a bid to raise her profile. And she will have to explain why, according to a former campaign manager, she filed expenses for mileage when she didn't drive a car and used donations to, of all things, go bowling.

Christine's current high profile is proof of the old adage: Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.

What did Ronnie Ray-Gun do before HE was elected Governor of California?

'Play-by-play' of baseball games while sitting in a radio studio in Iowa, and basing his 'play-by-play' on wire reports? I.e., not actually giving play-by-play?

Starring in such block-buster movies such as 'Bedtime for Bonzo'? (FYI - Bonzo was a chimpanzee, and Ronnie Ray-Gun was trying to e-du-ma-cate him into being a 'civilized' child.)

And all GOOPers have ethics (don't lie, for one thing)?

Newt is on his third wife? Didn't he admit to cheating on his first wife?

Lush Rimbaugh is deaf, and had to go to rehab, because of a drug habit? I wonder how much he had to pay in bribes to avoid prosecution for the illegal 'importation' of drugs on one of his return trips to the US from the Dominican Republic?

I was struck by the exchange below where in response to apn3206’s questions about what Ms. O’Donnell would do or has done, JakeD2 responded primarily by explaining what Ms. O’Donnell believes.


I can’t help but notice how often the Republican position is based on what they believe in and very rarely composed of concrete examples of successfully achieving anything they propose. I’m not saying that there aren’t any examples of this success; I’m just noticing that they rarely defend themselves with actual examples of doing/accomplishing what they say they believe. Surely there must be a body of work by Ms. O’Donnell she can point to showing her real efforts to create the America she believes in.


“What is Ms. O'Donnell going to do to encourage the reinvigoration of our industrial base? What policies will she advance to produce a citizenry sufficiently well-educated to maintain an industrialized democratic society? How will she work to discourage and maybe even reverse the financialization of our economy? Will she advance policies that aim to find common goals with other governments towards which we can work together?

“apn3206:

I'm glad that you asked. Christine O'Donnell believes that jobs are created when businesses are freed from endless taxes and bureaucratic red tape. She also believes heaping trillions in debt on the backs of our grandchildren is immoral and that Congress is elected to make the hard choices to preserve our nation’s future prosperity. Christine O'Donnell will fight to remove the crushing tax burden faced by American families and businesses and dramatically simplify the tax code.

O'Donnell's statements & behavior have pretty effectively defined her for the electorate as an erratic candidate with dubious credentials & a history of bizarre statements--which is bad enough. On top of that, the current controversies have identified her more than anything else with hard-line positions in the *culture war*--traditional faith, teen sex, sin & redemption--at a time when people want to hear about the *economy.* The identification is so strong at this point that O'Donnell may have trouble changing the subject--the national media may not let her.

By contrast, Coons would be well advised to "focus on the economy like a laser beam"--literally talk about nothing else, except how ill-prepared O'Donnell is to deal with it. The frame is well-established. She looks like a flake, & the public is well-prepared to believe it. Any candidate who's serious about the economy is going to look extremely attractive by contrast.

Reagan was head of SAG (and a Democrat) and campaigned for Goldwater and delivered a tremendous speech at the 1964 Rep. convention which put him on the national radar (not unlike Obama). He actually won great acclaim for his baseball announcing since it was very difficult to do compelling play by play off of wire reports. There is a reason he was called the Great Communicator. Let's face it, established political professionals like Gepheart, Dole, Kemp, Mondale generally make for less than stellar candidates for whatever reason.

Not even yet in the homestretch and it seriously appears that the Repubs can scratch both Delaware and Alaska from their Senate "pick-up" list.
Maybe that's why they just announced today a $1 million ad buy to try to have a Palm Beach, Fla., commuter, namely John Raese, knock off a popular two-term governor in line to take Robert C. Byrd's seat.
Another desperation bid.
The media now seems poised to make the call that the Democrats will maintain control of the Senate.
A few more shennanigans like O'Donnell's and Angle's on the House side, and the Repubs will have to kiss that bid good-bye as well.
Which would work out nicely since their "Pledge to America" is full of holes, doesn't seem to please their more rabid Neanderthal base and hasn't resonated with moderates either. In other words they truly have no workable plan for governing.
They have not managed to shed the "Party of No" label, and so they can go back to grousing on the minority side for another two years while the economy--if the stock market numbers recently are any indication--continues on a steady upward track, and the jobs come back. For which they will not be able to take any credit. So good luck in 2012, righties.

"For Obama to have been born in Kenya, Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. would have had to fly from Honolulu to Mombasa, give birth in a substandard third world hospital, fly back and then somehow arrange for a fraudulent birth certificate to be entered by the State of Hawai'i on August 8, 1961 (at the time governed by Republican William Quinn). They would have also somehow planted the phony birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser (at the time edited by Republican Thurston Twigg-Smith) and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Hawai'i’s current Republican Governor Linda Lingle would also have to be complicit in the cover-up as would all of the leftist 1960s University of Hawaii friends of Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr—among them US Rep Neil Abercrombie.

"In 1961, the roundtrip flight to Kenya would have been a very expensive, pointless, and time consuming epic journey for two starving students. Barack Obama Sr. had only been able to come study at UH Manoa with a free ticket on a donated charter flight with other Kenyan students." - Conservative pundit Andrew Walden, FrontPage Magazine, 04/01/09 (see above link)

You need to ask yourself how or why a couple of starving student parents would a) go to the trouble of traveling halfway around the world to give birth to their son in poorer conditions; b) organize a massive cover-up & fraud involving Hawaii's Dept of Health, the Honolulu newspapers, Republican & Democratic officials, & everyone they knew. Is this the Manchurian Candidate? Did they all plan for Barack to be president, all along?

Since there's no actual evidence of fraud--only a self-perpetuating allegation unbowed by evidence, perhaps those are better questions, at this point.

Other than that, Barack Obama is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life ; )

"O'Donnell ran in the Republican primary for the 2006 U.S. Senate election in Delaware, finishing in third place, with 17 percent of the vote, behind winner Jan C. Ting and second-place finisher Michael D. Protack. She then ran as a write-in candidate in the general election against Ting and incumbent Democrat Thomas R. Carper, finishing with 4 percent of the vote as Carper won re-election."

"She was uncontested in the Republican primary for the 2008 Senate race after beating businessman Tim Smith at the state party convention with more than 60 percent of the GOP delegate vote. Her general election opponent was Senator Joe Biden, who was also running for vice president on the Obama-Biden ticket. O'Donnell questioned Biden's dual campaigns, claiming that serving his constituents was not important to him and criticizing his unwillingness to participate in debates and candidate forums. Opinion polling during the race showed that O'Donnell was behind by a two-to-one margin. In the general election on November 4, 2008, Biden defeated O'Donnell by 65 percent to 35 percent."

So, she ran for the Senate in 2006 and 2008. This run makes three times she's tried for the seat.

It is possible to be (a) chaste in her 30's after (b) spending her college years boozing and waking up with different men. It's called repentance, look it up someday.

there it is, SEX=SIN so if you have sex you need to repent.....unless you are a priest and have sex with an altar boy.
Repent, Repent, Repent, your life will be much better after (after you spent years at the shrink to make you understand that sex is not = sin and your guilty conscience is just a way the church uses to control you....or the republicans....)

"For Obama to have been born in Kenya, Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. would have had to fly from Honolulu to Mombasa, give birth in a substandard third world hospital, fly back and then somehow arrange for a fraudulent birth certificate to be entered by the State of Hawai'i on August 8, 1961 (at the time governed by Republican William Quinn). They would have also somehow planted the phony birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser (at the time edited by Republican Thurston Twigg-Smith) and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Hawai'i’s current Republican Governor Linda Lingle would also have to be complicit in the cover-up as would all of the leftist 1960s University of Hawaii friends of Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr—among them US Rep Neil Abercrombie.

"In 1961, the roundtrip flight to Kenya would have been a very expensive, pointless, and time consuming epic journey for two starving students. Barack Obama Sr. had only been able to come study at UH Manoa with a free ticket on a donated charter flight with other Kenyan students." - Conservative pundit Andrew Walden, FrontPage Magazine, 04/01/09 (see above link)

You need to ask yourself how or why a couple of starving student parents would a) go to the trouble of traveling halfway around the world to give birth to their son in poorer conditions; b) organize a massive cover-up & fraud involving Hawaii's Dept of Health, the Honolulu newspapers, Republican & Democratic officials, & everyone they knew.

In short, we have an allegation of fraud without clear perpetrators, motive, means, or evidence--just a self-perpetuating allegation. Above all, the accusers can't even establish that the fraud *took place.* Do you begin to understand our impatience with this?

'JakeD2' ?

Are you forgetting to add that it has also been reported that President Obama's paternal grandmother later corrected her statement, indicating that she didn't realize the person asking about the birth was talking about a different person?

Or are you the type that thinks that a single report supporting your point of view is without question the ONLY point of view that can be considered, but if the report does not support your point of view, that report can never be proven correct?

Everything is black and white - there are no gray areas at all?

Point 2 This thread illustrates the remarkable difference between the left and the right. I do not recall ONE poster on this site defending Alvin Greene when he secured the S.C. Dem nomination. Indeed Dems were so embarrassed they tried to blame the R's for a plant. A mistake..however unfortunate is a mistake.

EVERY thinking R knows that O'Donnell's PRIMARY win was a huge mistake for R's.
Still see how many try to defend the indefensible. It's the same with all the wack R's...Bachmann and her lies...Palin and her illiteracy and her complete lack of command of English...she speaks as if it were her second language...Angle...and now O'Donnell.

@soma king...You're missing the point here.
O'Donnell is nothing more than entertainment...the reality behind our posts is the sad state of our nation when a significant % of our nation...you and Jake for example..are willing to vote for an obviously unqualified candidate.

Jake in his ignorance about qualifications keeps bringing up Al Franken. As bearclaw posted earlier Christine O'Donnell's qualifications are not even a pimple on Franken's backside who..

(1) Graduated cum laude from Harvard with a degree in Political Science.
(2) Got married and raised two wonderful and successful kids, thereby actually showing his family values.
(3) Writer and performer for Saturday Night Live. Received three Emmy Awards.
(4) Wrote five NY Times bestselling books, three of which reached #1.
(5) Received the USO's Merit Award for 10 years of service in visiting and performing for our troops overseas, and visiting wounded soldiers in military hospitals.
(6) And did all of this without living off campaign contributions to pay his rent.

Do you bozo's understand what cum laude even means? Do you feel no shame in presenting O'Donnell as a fiscal conservative when she can't even manage her own money...lied about her college degree because she hadn't even paid the money to get her diploma...a house in foreclosure...and according TO HER OWN campaign manager used campaign contributions for her personal living expenses.

You all have NO ANSWERS to this...because you are like spoiled petulant children..who lacking the ability of critical thinking simply plug your fingers in your ears and say...nanananan I'm not listening...I can't hear you..as if that somehow will make O'Donnell a legitimate candidate for the freaking U.S. Senate.

"There's also DIRECT eyewitness evidence, like Obama's paternal grandmother who has never been outside of Kenya saying that she was present when Obama was born there."

No, there is no such evidence. This is another false claim circulated among conspiracy theorists--which was easily disproved by going over Sarah Obama's taped statement: "'Obama was not born in Mombasa. He was born in America,' the translator says after talking to the woman. ... Another response later says, 'Obama in Hawaii. Hawaii. She says he was born in Hawaii.'" http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2009/07/30/72794/heres-the-truth-birther-claims.html

The Hawaiian birth certificate is a legal document, prima facie evidence in a court of law and the burden of proof still falls upon those who wish to challenge it. Such challenges have not stood up to close scrutiny by experts or by the courts, to date. The overwhelming body of evidence supports its legitimacy.

"Why don't you want to know for sure?" I suppose that depends on what you mean by "for sure." You can go on asking questions until doomsday. You don't have to accept the overwhelming preponderance of material evidence or expert testimony. You can call every document a forgery, every expert wrong or partisan, parse everything for an inconsistent sentence or suggestive detail. You can never be sure if you don't want to be:

"It's just that I have a funny feeling about him in the back of my mind."

I'm afraid that that may be the problem. You might ask yourself why that feeling persists despite the overwhelming weight of the evidence? Why you grasp out at any circumstantial or hearsay scrap that might, just might contradict it? Is it possible that you just don't want it to be true?

2008 happened. You don't get to unring the bell. If it's just that you're against Barack Obama, just work on defeating him.

Wow! Based on Greg Sargent's latest "Happy Hour Roundup" it is clear that he REALLY thinks that Christine O'Donnell is trying to stop a married man and woman from having sex?! I thought it was just his crazy commenters and that the headline was just a tease (pardon the pun). He was actually being serious.

The video clip (above) makes it clear, to me at least, that everyone was referring to stopping TEEN sex, not adult (and especially not MARRIED) sex. Whether you want to believe it or not, Ms. O'Donnell was making an analogy to herself at that time, and not claiming that she was a teen (especially since she said: "I'm in my thirties"), but I thought that was obvious. I guess not.

Bristol Palin won't be a teenager on October 18, but she's trying to get teens to choose abstinence too. I think she has a compelling story, but your side (of course) just makes fun of it. To me, hearing from someone who went through it and realized her mistake is a triumph of the human spirit. If we can't learn from other people's mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them.

well, ok! now we'll have sex police as well as mind police and drug police. small government at its best. will schoolteachers have to check palms every morning before prayers and pledges?

Sexual preference: I read a letter to the "Annie's Mailbox" from someone who said they simply have no interest in sex. The person had a job, friends and was happy living alone. A reply to the discussion I remember was that a small percentage of people, from a half to one percent were simply asexual but normal in other respects. I believe the protagonist could be asexual but I believe she is not normal. I would go more into that Satan business and find out if she got satisfaction from killing small animals.

It is unfair to show her words to the voters. And she is no more wacko than the Afgani Taliban, after whom we have modeled our party. If the Afghan Taliban can stop people from having sex, then our Taliban can too. You just have to believe!

So she believes in abstinence. So what? Why don't we do a story on Regie Love, you know, the "dog walker", at the WhiteHouse. Bet you guys won't touch that one!

Like the Pastor Terry Jones in Florida, I think we have to at least look at the idea that Christine O'Donnell is suffering from some form of mental or emotional illness. We are no longer in the days of Thomas Eagleton when mental illness was a devastating shame. Rather than propelling these people into the political spotlight, it would be more compassionate to encourage them towards seeking help. Are we as a people really so cold-hearted as to make her cries for attention into a media-driven form of entertainment?

What FactCheck.org has is actually a "Certification of Live Birth" -- that document could have been obtained via a fraudulent affidavit -- if Obama was born in Kenya, however, then he is not legally President of the United States.

Why don't you want to know for sure? Why doesn't Obama consent to the release of the LONG FORM birth certificate?

Posted by: JakeD2
--------------------------------------
Well JakeD2, if you had read the entire deal(with pictures no less)...The FactCheck personnel handled the actual form and stated it is legit. Why do you so desperately need to believe otherwise? The Republican governor of Hawaii has said "to knock it off" - that he was born in Honolulu. Do you really think a republican governor wouldn't "out him if it was true"? You folks think that if you keep this lie up, then people will believe you. I doubt the Honolulu newspaper would put his birth announcement in the paper if it wasn't true. Plus the interview with the nurse that was present when he was born was on the tv. I'd be interested to see how John McCain would have fared in this arena--for he truly was born in the Panama Canal zone to a military family--and the constitution is murky on his ability to be declared "native born"(I have a daughter that was born in Germany & will never be declared "native born"). I'm a federal retired employee and I know what background checks are required for these type of jobs---and if you'll notice the republicans in the senate & house are not saying he is not an American, because they know better. So if it makes you feel better to believe a big lie, then you go ahead, as that's on you. Just don't try to get the ignorant folks out there (who won't find out for themselves) to follow you. That's misleading for political gain. And that's dirty on either side of the aisle.
Our President Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu to two poor college students who couldn't have afforded air fare to anywhere at that time.

I'm an atheist who deems all region utter nonsense. O' Donnell's personal beliefs aren't important to me. But her stand on political issues I agree with a lot more than her Dem opponent's stand on issues.

I'm from Delaware. Not one of you outsiders spouting what you hear from lamestream media.

Ask yourself why the lamestream media keeps going after O' Donnell with non-issue stuff. Polls had Castle way ahead of her before she trounced him. The same will happen to Coons.

I'm NOT a Republican by the way.

Sigh... First of all, Stewart is right: we need a return to sanity. Second, let me say up front that I find the GOP and the Tea Party and Palin frightening, infuriating, and depressing.

But that said, Democrats, you've got to wake up. Going after O'Donnell with these kinds of things is a very, very big mistake. You're mocking her with a video that offends your sensibilities and mine, but that's going to make her base like her all the more.

Was I having sex in college? Damned straight. Are kids today going to have sex in college? Does beer have bubbles? And would it be better if that sex included precautions like condoms? Absolutely. Personally, I think the more education the better. I am no advocate for ignorance.

But her base is. And every time you show videos like this to mock the message, you're moving those types who are more nervous about sexuality, etc. further toward her side (if, that is, there's anybody who still remains on the fence).

Right now, the real "sad reality" is that attacking O'Donnell like this makes the Dem. choir feel good, in a smug sort of way. But if the Dems want to have any hope of all in Nov., they/WE need to do better. We need to figure out what the middle (if there is one) is thinking, and target them instead.

This is a problem that goes right up the chain, by the way. The unified power of the Dem. party voice during the Obama campaign (once Hillary stepped out) was a thing of beauty. But now? It's a sloppy mess.

Let the press dig this stuff up if they must. But every self-respecting lib. on here needs to take the camera away from this and instead focus on the REAL threats -- namely, the fact that O'Donnell and her ilk are more frightening for their economic policies than they are for their sexual hangups.

Look, nobody questions this nation is in trouble. Jobs aren't bouncing back. Markets look like they could fall again any second. And healthcare, private and public, is a disaster. Meanwhile, the Boomers expect retirement help and the Feds are broke.

The GOP says we can take in LESS revenue, ignore healthcare, give financial firms free reign, and keep running pointless wars and that will "fix" what ails us. Nothing could be more stupid.

Meanwhile, nobody wants to hear Obama blame Bush. Take responsibility, they say. And that's right. But what he needs to do is make people see the path, even if it's a continuation of the one we're on, as the only way during a hard journey.

We could pick up ground by saying this: We need to end military adventures overseas. Both morally and fiscally, they're unstainable. We need to refill the Treasury from home, not by selling Treasuries to China and Japan. That means more taxes for those who can afford it, so we can still afford as a nation to give a break to those who need a leg up. We need to fix healthcare. Morally and fiscally, that's also a necessity. The new plan will do that -- if the GOP doesn't undermine it.

These are the things we need to say.

As a lifelong Republican, I'm alarmed at the O'Donnell phenomenon. If O'Donnell wins, Republicans will abdicate their ability to criticize officeholders who illegally spend campaign funds. It will also establish Delaware as a place where out-of-state interests can buy elections here and what she will do with unspent campaign funds.

She is now "ignoring" the national media, and is also refusing to appear on Delaware radio talk shows and TV. Her website is a fundraising site.

Second, given her misuse of campaign funds in the past and the potential for her to lose the Senate race with a sizable amount of unspent funds, how would she use those funds post-election?

Relevant law seems to be found at: http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/cfl/cfl98/chart3a.html

Her real strategy seems to be to run out the clock, lose the race with millions in unspent contributions, and then establish a non-profit/foundation and pay herself a salary and expenses from that foundation.

Since moving to Delaware about 6 years ago, she has run for Senate 3 times without having any other meaningful employment.

One month ago, she had minimal personal income, $20,000 campaign cash-on-hand and plenty of unpaid bills. One month later, over $2.3 million in new campaign cash and more coming in every day. It is not unrealistic to imagine a scenario where where raises more than $5 million, and then is unable or unwilling to spend it all on this election.

She could lose the election, finish with $2-$3 million in unspent funds, and start an "O'Donnell Foundation" where she names herself a high-paid salary job. This would go down as one of the greatest political scams ever.

I would like to know why the lame street media hasn't done a hatchet job on Alvin Green like they have done on odonnell. Are they afraid of the race card or is their special style of "reporting" saved only for the GOP. Seems a field day could have been had with Green also.

"She also believes heaping trillions in debt on the backs of our grandchildren is immoral and that Congress is elected to make the hard choices to preserve our nation’s future prosperity. Christine O'Donnell will fight to remove the crushing tax burden faced by American families and businesses".

If that is what she believes, she is deluded or intending to deceive.

Taxes are low now, very low. Obama reduced taxes lower than they were at any time under George Bush. The rich pay less than a third of what they did in the 1950s, a boom time for the United States. The debt is not due to increased spending, but to the Bush tax cuts. That is well-known and proven conclusively.

CBO Data Show Tax Cuts Have Played Much Larger Role than Domestic Spending Increases in Fueling the Deficit

http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=966

Ending the Bush tax cuts for those making over $250,000 would cut the deficit by 30% overnight. Even so, those people would receive maximum benefit from the lower rate because the first $250,000 would be subject to the lower rate. Democrats tried to pass a bill that would lower taxes on small business and provide loans for them but the GOP blocked it.

Baseless and fact-free rhetoric like yours doesn't fool many anymore.

(quote)“Does the left actually understand how they look when they decide the Delaware election should turn on WitchCraft and abstinence ? as opposed to say….jobs and the economy?

The fact is the left would actually vote for a Democratic Wiccan candidate as an example of diversity and tolerance.

Hey, when Hillary Clinton was holding seances in the White House it was an intellectual exercise."(unquote)

Obama's record of job creation in the recession is better Bush's was before the recession. In fact, Bush's record was the worst of any President since Hoover, whose term took place almost entirely in the Depression. And, yes, that is germane because Bush's policies are still those of the GOP. If the GOP knows how to create jobs they should have done it.

Those of us who live in the US know that our Constitution prohibits any religious qualification for public office. Your comment about Wiccans is offensive and un-American.

There's no "official" religious test for office, but each individual voter can decide just not to vote for a Wiccan.

Yeah, I'd vote for a wiccan on the same terms that I'd vote for any other candidate.
At least if O'Donnell was a real witch she'd believe in 'Save ye harm none, do what thou wilt.' Which she obviously doesn't.

"Pristine" O'Don't's funding is coming from hypocrite pro-dead mother, pro-pedophile priest cult Catholic extremists. My Catholic Munchausen by Proxy, childbirth-incontinent mom burned all my skin off when I was in first grade as her excuse for permanent marital abstinence and to ruin my own future love life. I wish she had aborted me instead. I promise you that "Pristine" hopes her campaign will outrun her sex tapes and abortion/STD clinic records that disgruntled boyfriends will release.
