Dumb & Dumber

Christine O'Donnell, in a recent US Senatorial debate, proved she can be (at least) two people at once, namely someone Dumb and also someone Dumber.  Should she try for the trifecta of Dumbest?  Her claim to be following the US Constitution as her guiding light for legislating is a bit dim as she proclaimed, "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" in response to the Democratic nominee Chris Coons' statement that, "...private and parochial schools are free to teach creationism but that "religious doctrine doesn't belong in our public schools."

While her question is legitimate in that the phrase "seperation of church and state" does NOT appear in the US Constitution, her response to Coons' reply "...that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion." of  "You're telling me that's in the First Amendment?" took the audience by surprise....and not a pleasant one.  Her security blanket of being all about the US Constitution seemed threadbare.  Come on!  This is the First Amendment we're talking about...didn't she even read that far into the US Constitution?  When is this train wreck of a campaign going to end?   How much more embarassment will she be directing toward the Delaware US Senatorial election?

Come on, she's been complaining about the Republican Party not supporting her monetarily.  I'm sure she had enought money in her campaign to shell out for one of the Dummy books.   Nope.  Now, she's simply proved what Sanford's been spouting.

N.B> to Ms. O'Donnell, the Constitutional "expert", the actor in the YouTube is Redd Foxx...not President Obama. Just making sure you have your facts straight.


Wow. I just ... wow.
I think a politician's character makeup requires a certain element of recklessness, or derring-do, just to enter the arena and take accountability for the risk that the voters are taking when they go to the polls. But this woman typifies "reckless abandon." Tangentially, I was really hoping we'd see less of Sarah Palin when Obama took office. But not only are we getting a deluge of Sarah, we're being hit with her would-be proteges, too.

Here's hoping the voters continue to choose anything besides these clowns; here's hoping the discussion of "What now?" becomes a serious one.
You're so right about the "reckless abandon" part. There also seems to be what Maureen Dowd termed an attitude of "Ignorance is Chic" as perfected by Palin and now practiced by some of her dwarves.

I'm an old fart; I like elitism. I admire educated people. And folks that put in a solid 50 hr week? Well, they go to the top of the list.

These T-Party talkers simply get my blood boiling and the blood pressure rising. Their lack of understanding and pontificating of banalities and stupidities as badges to be proudly worn is amazing.
I mean, come on, we all know we don't need no stinking badges....
