Fun Facts about Christine O'Donnell (non-masturbation-related)

http://www.csmonitor.com/var/ezflow_site/storage/images/media/images/0914-delaware-odonnell/8636073-1-eng-US/0914-delaware-odonnell_full_300.jpg

She thinks there are mice with human brains being made in labs.

"They are -- they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they're already into this experiment." -- Christine O'Donnel, 2007.


She "Dabbled into Witchcraft?"





She thought she could give the keynote address at the Republican Convention
Several former aides said that as the Republican National Convention approached, O'Donnell became convinced she could land the coveted role as keynote speaker — the speech was ultimately delivered by former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani — and booked an expensive trip to St. Paul on that premise.
"She felt like she had to go and was hoping she would speak," said Keegan, who said he couldn’t believe what a waste of money it was for a little-known candidate who had raised just under $8,000 by the end of June that year. "When she got there, she got lucky and got seated somewhere and said, ‘Did you see me on TV?’

She believes that the only reason a man would want to be in a relationship with her is that he wouldn't know how to get off without her.



Dammit, Christine, if I ever figure out how to work this thing on my own, I'm gonna file for divorce so fast. . .

She's paranoid (a requirement, apparently, for entry into the tea party)

''They're following me. They follow me home at night. I make sure that I come back to the townhouse and then we have our team come out and check all the bushes and check all the cars to make sure that -- they follow me.''

—Delaware GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell, claiming that unnamed political opponents are following her, Weekly Standard interview, Sept. 2, 2010



She has no idea what the word "feminist" means.

Asked if she considered herself a feminist, O'Donnell said: "Absolutely, but let me qualify that -- I consider myself an authentic feminist. Not as defined by the modern movement. And, let me clarify that a little bit more. I was an English major, so break it down: -ist means one who celebrates. As a feminist, I celebrate my femininity."

She thinks condoms spread AIDS

''A lot of the money that we're spending goes to things that we know will not prevent AIDS, but indeed will continue to spread the disease. A lot of our money goes to distribute condoms in high schools, and a lot of our money goes to distribute material that is literally pornographic.''

—Christine O'Donnell, taking issue with government programs on AIDS prevention programs, C-SPAN interview, 1997


She's not real good about paying her bills

When O'Donnell wanted to place an order for hundreds of campaign T-shirts, Keegan [a former campaign staffer] said, she asked him to put the charge on his personal credit card.

"I said, ‘No, how are we going to pay for them? Her famous quote was always, 'have them invoice it.' I said, ‘We can't do that. In 20 days, we're going to have to pay for it.’ And it's not like we had all this money coming in," he explained. "Whenever Christine wanted money for something, she wanted everyone to stop paying somebody else."

That included halting payment of checks to staffers, which eventually led to several of them leaving, including Murray and Keegan before summer's end.

But before Keegan finished his projects in August 2008, he made sure he called all the vendors the campaign was using.

"I said, ‘Don't take any orders from her unless you get cash upfront,’" he warned.


According to published accounts, O’Donnell was using campaign funds for half her rent and $545.98 to purchase a mattress or mattresses from Mattress Giant.

and she had lied about being a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University, which had sued for unpaid student loans. She also had failed to pay her federal taxes and defaulted on her house payments.

(although, in her defense, her financial problems may stem largely from the fact that she has apparently never held an actual job, seeming to always be employed as the spokesperson for one phony wingnut group or another)

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/photo/2010/09/14/PH2010091407011.jpg

She doesn't understand the economy. Or what socialism is. Or very much of anything.

''America is now a socialist economy. The definition of a socialist economy is when 50% or more your economy is dependent on the federal government.''

—Delaware GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell

Christine O'Donnell’s Education

  • Fairleigh Dickinson University

    19891993

  • Claremont Graduate University

    Constitutional Government

  • University of Oxford

    “Post Modernism in the New Millennium”

(There are real doubts as to whether she ever actually took a class at Oxford --see here-- I don't see how she could have afforded to take an Oxford class when she couldn't pay her Farleigh-Dickinson bills, but whatever.)

President and Founder

The SALT

(Non-Profit; 51-200 employees; Non-Profit Organization Management industry)

I don't know what the SALT is, I would have said the Soviet Arms Limitation Talks, but that can't be it, so I looked it up.

according to the Daily Beast:

O’Donnell, a former spokeswoman for Concerned Women for America, had founded an organization called The Savior’s Alliance for Lifting the Truth, or The SALT, in 1996; it was meant to organize young people around opposition to abortion, sex education, and homosexuality.

. . . The SALT wasn’t much of an organization. It was run out of O’Donnell’s apartment, where Richards lived for his first month in California, and the two of them seemed to be its only employees. But O’Donnell was good at getting publicity. She appeared frequently on Politically Incorrect and other talk shows, and the two of them toured the country, giving press conferences and speaking at churches and colleges about sexual purity and curing homosexuality.

Toward the end of the Clinton administration, she protested the appointment of James Hormel to be ambassador to Luxembourg, a posting the religious right opposed because Hormel was gay. “The SALT was concerned about Hormel’s ties to the pedophile-rights movement,” her website said, though there was not a shred of evidence behind the slur. In 1997, in a clip recently unearthed by Talking Points Memo, she appeared on C-SPAN, where, looking fresh, lovely, and innocent, she objected to AIDS sufferers being called “victims” because the disease is the product of their own actions.


Wow! What a horrible person!

O’Donnell’s demonization of gay people is especially striking given the fact that, according to Richards, she has a sister who is openly lesbian.

Aaaaand, she's even worse!


Even the ultra-right Weekly Standard calls her a liar.

On Sunday, John McCormack, a writer for The Weekly Standard, reported that in 2005 O'Donnell filed a lawsuit asking for $6.9 million in damages for alleged gender discrimination and wrongful termination by a conservative nonprofit organization called the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

She dropped the lawsuit in 2008, saying she could no longer afford an attorney.

In addition to raising questions about the alleged harassment, the article questioned her honesty in part by highlighting a claim in the lawsuit that O'Donnell once tried to take graduate-level classes at Princeton University.

According to The Weekly Standard, the lawsuit alleged O'Donnell "lost the increased earning power that a master's degree from Princeton would have created. In the future with proper finances, Miss O'Donnell should probably be able to return and complete that program."

The problem was that O'Donnell never took any graduate courses at Princeton, something she acknowledged to CNN.


I don't know why she lies about going to these elitist fancy-schmancy schools. It's not like the teabaggers are impressed by education.

Servicing your air conditioner on a regular basis will preserve your power prices down. The greater your air conditioning unit is running, the much less resources it will use, thus, saving you moeny on vitality bills. It truly is also wise to preserve your unit on a regular basis as opposed to pay huge repair prices when it finally breaks down. A service call is significantly cheaper than a replace the unit call.

The optimist in me wants to believe that voters will recognize O'Donnell's unsuitability for office and will vote accordingly. On the other hand, in the country's current political climate, anythings's possible. Yikes.

Exceptional the weekend I begin two articles close to the problems with the Massachusetts prepare care system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts structure, the failures in Massachusetts are a precursor of things to come. I solely like the second-best article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I over he reads my blog).

If you be paid skim my foregoing posts, there is nothing up to date in these reports. The Massachusetts diagram, which includes an Obama-like surety mandate, has increased the conglomeration of insured, effectively entirety shape raw adults. Though, it has also resulted in crowded danger rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Fervent lobbying efforts be struck through blocked politicians from astringent fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs array resulted in higher coolness premiums which judge mortified companies can no longer produce, [url=http://shopper4.us/site4/commercialinsurancedefinition/ ]ubezpieczenie zdrowotne[/url] greatest to patients being dumped into the main part wise system. The grandeur, already in the throes of a drop, laboured to against with these increased costs.

The administration is attempting to limit deposit premiums near fiat, but in the end can at most gain in the compendious down attack to, and will after all is said be unsuccessful. In the end single-payer/government takeover make be the at foremost substitute, which I mould wishes as scan later. The broken off of events is completely comparable to the design I include in days of yore outlined on Obamacare.

No sum how reliable the underlying set up, facts in fact inveterately prevails. This will-power also be the concept of topics I sound judgement be taking up in the next hardly weeks. I ordain be examining in perspicaciousness the weight of Grossness, drugs, juice, barbarousness and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and go to accept a hit session about what place loyal tax should take up in healthcare. I behold apropos also be examining an prominent and once in a chap-fallen moon discussed complexion of American healthcare the radiant amount of mazuma, continually and eager suffering Americans commit to valueless or even-tempered destructive practices, what I conclude license the place of magic in healthcare. More to come.
