It is fascinating. Christine O’Donnell continues to come apart faster than I can type. Certainly faster than I can photoshop. And (cough, obviously) much faster than I can browse the internet for something better.
It’s like watching two opposing high-speed rail engines, posed defiance and embarrassment, plow into each other in IMAX Slo-Mo.
No — it’s like watching the detonation of a nuclear bomb of wingnuttery at the atomic level: the discharge of a ricocheting particle of O’Donnell’s stupidity releasing several more. Pretty soon the internet will be nothing but a hurricane of imbecility from the Tea Party anti-masturbation candidate, eventually leaving a smoking crater where your laptop once sat.
The latest? Christine O’Donnell’s candidacy is over, done. She’s dead meat. Why? Bill Maher’s revelation yesterday that frequent guest O’Donnell claimed, on his show, to have dabbled in witchcraft.
I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. … I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do. [...]
One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that. … We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar.
Me: who cares? She said she used to do stuff that was wrong, but now she’s straight with Jesus. Fits into the narrative just fine. Them: Goodbye.

So, for Conservatives and the Tea Party faithful, you can oppose normal human sexuality and be a good Senate candidate. You can skip paying your bills, unjustifiably sue former employers for millions, and lie about everything in sight and be a good Senate candidate. You can reject the modern world, ranting and raving about the evils of our common reality, and be a good Senate candidate.
But if you’ve ever stepped outside of the holy Jesus circle, you’re unfit for offfice. I see. Meanwhile, on the exact same show, almost in the same breath, Maher reminded everybody of this Christine Classic:
O’DONNELL: A lie, whether it be a lie or an exaggeration, is disrespect to whoever you’re exaggerating or lying to, because it’s not respecting reality.
MAHER: Quite the opposite, it can be respect.
IZZARD: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, ‘do you have any Jewish people in your house?’ and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler.
O’DONNELL: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that!
MAHER: God is not there. Hitler’s there and you’re there.
O’DONNELL: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.
Haven’t yet seen anybody on the right call her a political corpse for that crap. It’s apparently worse to look like a bad person than to be one.
MEANWHILE . . authorities in the Palmdale, California, area are searching for a group of devout Christians, 6 adults and 8 children, who may have committed mass suicide. The husbands of two of the women came forward with notes indicating they were “going to heaven shortly to meet Jesus and their deceased relatives.” Hopefully, they’ll all be found shortly, safe and sound. Those Godly parents are good people.
