Has already canceled first scheduled appearance on Sunday morning political show
“Christine O’Donnell just canceled her appearance on tomorrow’s FTN,” “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer tweeted Saturday morning.
“They just emailed us and said she needed to cancel,” Schieffer’s senior producer, Mary Hager, told Politico.
“I feel your pain, Bob. A page from Rand playbook!” tweeted Betsy Fischer, executive producer of “Meet the Press.” Rand Paul, the Tea Party candidate from Kentucky, canceled a planned “MTP” appearance in May.
And despite Sarah Palin’s advice to her protege candidate — “Speak through Fox” — O’Donnell also canceled on Chris Wallace’s “Fox News Sunday.”
Told Bill O’Reilly in 2007 She believes Scientists are cloning Mice with Human Brains:
O’DONNELL: Bill, if we — if we approach this complicated bioethic issue with our heads in the sand, the other end is in the air.
OREILLY: My head isn’t in the sand, Christine. I have the biggest head in the world. There isn’t enough sand on the beach in Hawaii for my head to be in there.
O’DONNELL: My point is, we’re approaching this issue with the other end in the air.
O’REILLY: No, no, no. Hold it.
O’DONNELL: By their own admission…
O’DONNELL: … these groups admitted that the report that said, “Hey, yay, we cloned a monkey. Now we’re using this to start cloning humans.” We have to keep…
O’REILLY: Let them admit anything they want. But they won’t do that here in the United States unless all craziness is going on.
O’DONNELL: 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.
Believed Joe Biden had tapped her phones:
When she ran against then-Sen. Joe Biden in 2008, Christine O’Donnell thought the future Vice President was tapping her phone lines, a former campaign manager for the now-Delaware GOP Senate nominee told Politico.Kristin Murray, who was one of several campaign managers for O’Donnell during that race, said the candidate broached the subject of phone security in June 2008 when they were discussing cell phone plans.
“She told me that she thought Joe Biden tapped her phone line,” Murray told Politico.
Believes women in the military are dangerous:
O’Donnell, when asked by the moderator whether taxpayer-funded, single-sex military institutions were constitutional, said:
“I think they’re definitely constitutional and I think they’re vital to the security of our country and to the defense of our country. By integrating women into particularly military institutes, it cripples the readiness of our defense. Schools like The Citadel train young men to confidently lead other young men into a battlefield where one of them will die. And when you have women in that situation, it creates a whole new set of dynamics which are distracting to training these men to kill or be killed. And these dynamics between men and women are what make the relationship between men and women beautiful. So I don’t think that we should try to desensitize men to the differences.”
Admits paying Mother with campaign funds:
A spokesman for Republican Christine O’Donnell’s Senate campaign is suggesting nothing improper was committed when it paid out funds to O’Donnell’s mother, Carole, earlier this year.
“Carole O’Donnell, Christine’s mother, did receive money for her services rendered on accounting and the FEC reporting for the campaign before the treasurer came onto the campaign,” a spokesman told CNN Friday.
As first reported by The Daily Beast, records filed with the Federal Elections Commission show the campaign paid $3,500 to Carole O’Donnell between February and July of this year. The expenses are listed under “bookkeeping” and “financial consulting services.”
“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 was a little blood there and stuff like that. We went to a movie and then had a little picnic on a satanic altar.”
“It is not enough to be abstinent with other people, you also have to be be abstinent alone. The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can’t masturbate without lust.”
Web sites like Talking Points Memo subsequently published other clips, including several from Mr. Maher’s “Politically Incorrect.” In a 1998 episode of the roundtable talk show, Ms. O’Donnell said a lie “is disrespect to whoever you’re exaggerating or lying to, because it’s not respecting reality.” The comedian Eddie Izzard seized on that comment, asking, “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.” Ms. O’Donnell answered, “I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously.”
Aside from awkward videos being dredged up from her past, O’Donnell is currently being targeted by a watchdog group claiming the Tea Partier abused campaign funds for personal use and made false statements on forms she filed with the Federal Elections Commission. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (aka CREW), which earlier in the year scrutinized NY Congressman Charles Rangel, filed a complaint to the U-S Attorney’s office in Delaware and the Federal Elections Commission alleging that O’Donnell illegally spent more than $20-thousand in 2009 and 2010. “It turns out Miss O’Donnell has treated her campaign funds like they are her very own personal piggy bank,” said Melanie Sloan, the group’s executive director. “She’s used that money to pay for things like her rent, for gas, meals, and even a bowling outing. And that’s just flat-out illegal.” Much of these campaign expenses were made in 2009, when O’Donnell was not a candidate for anything. Representatives for O’Donnell could not be reached for comment.
That is just for starters folks? Again how are these people getting into office?
