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.Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0910/42321_Page2.html#ixzz1016F65ts
"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
''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

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.
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.
