Delaware gets its share of howling loonies, and this is a prime example.
Christine O’Donnell is running for Senate in the state. She’s running against Rep. Mike Castle for the GOP nomination. She’s crazy as a shithouse catfish:
“When a married person uses pornography, or is unfaithful, it compromises not just his (or her) purity, but also compromises the spouse’s purity. As a church, we need to teach a higher standard than abstinence. We need to preach a righteous lifestyle.”
On an MTV show about abstinence (as summarized by Huffington Post), O’Donnell explained:
“The reason that you don’t tell [people] that masturbation is the answer to AIDS and all these other problems that come with sex outside of marriage is because again it is not addressing the issue. … You’re just gonna create somebody who is, I was gonna say, toying with his sexuality. Pardon the pun.”
Pornography is adultery. Good Lord, masturbation is toying with your sexuality. And the government spends too much. Obviously, these are all horribly wrong.
Speaking of which — you know what’s not wrong? Having supporters and former employees call your fellow Republican, the guy you’re trying to beat to the nomination, an ass-humping prevert:
Actually, they didn’t call him that, they just passed on one of those rumors that everyone knows to be true and voters should really be aware of, cuz’, y’know, maybe they hadn’t heard it yet. Who wouldn’t be grateful for that breaking ‘news’? O’Donnell is a fount of good intentions and accurate information.
But, then, you know how recent college graduates can be, talking your ear off about all the crazy things they think they know.
