    Enough with the fear mongering. This country survived a civil war, I don’t think it is going to fall apart with a few more years of a Republican majority in Congress. The longer the Democrats focus on Christine O’Donnell’s stance on masturbation rather than on the issues, the more moderates they are losing.

    Jason, it damn near fell apart after 6 short years of Republican majority. Anybody – moderate, independent – who either votes for these people or stays at home has simply not paid attention to where we were headed or where we could still go….

    I can’t see this as “fear-mongering.” Showing the faces of public figures with very public “opinions” only asks the viewer to choose whether or not he/she concurs with those very publicly stated “opinions”.

    I, for one, do not concur and will vote accordingly. If you agree with those stated opinions, then vote accordingly. However, you should consider whether you wish to be ruled by their “opinions” or not — and you will most certainly be ruled by your choices!

    Fear mongering? Seriously? This is just pointing out that if you don’t vote, then people who do vote will pick your government, and you may not like their opinions and candidates.

    I have no idea how trying to get people to vote could possibly be thought of as fear mongering.

    And I agree with Mad Hatter — I left the country for a while during the Bush years because I did not like where our country was going.

    The whole point of Christine O’Donnell’s stance on masturbation is that, like gay marriage, end-of-life decisions, abortion rights, marijuana legalization, separation of church and state, and dozens of other issues, the tea party is completely hypocritical when they claim they want to keep government out of your private business. Even ignoring social issues, they pretend to be for property rights, but only as long as the property is not owned by a Muslim. Those are issues.

    Hello – who is she running against? The more air time she gets, good or bad, is less air time her opponent gets. You are are aiding and abetting, albeit unknowingly, Christine O’donnel’s chances. What should be happening, if you are for her opponent, is talking about their stance on issues.

    Sometimes you all sound like a bunch of school kids picking on that one outsider type new kid. Exactly what each of you say you are against. If you are so afraid of Ms Odonnel then you should either get to know her or start talking about what her opponent stands for that is different. You may just end up helping her get elected.

    Come on, Sarge. She’s clearly a baffoon ala Sarah Palin and would have no business in our Senate. It’s simply incorrect to think of her as a qualified outsider who is getting “picked on”…she is no way qualified and surely you would agree with that. I would like to try term limits to keep new blood serving in our government but I at least want them to have a minimum of qualifications.

    I think all kinds of air time sould be used to expose these “Tea Bagged” pretenders for what they really are!

    Mad Hatter – I understand and want qualified candidates to compete and serve. What is a qualified candidate? Compared to some i’ve seen it doesn’t take much, just enough money and somebody to put your face on the TV enough times. That is the point i’m trying to make.
    Before she became “the target” nobody outside Del. knew what she looked like, correct? Now everybody knows her face and her name. Part 1 of the get elected requirement. Now those anonymous big money donors will throw money into her campaign, yes or no? Part 2 of the get elected requirement. Now she’s going to get the best ad writers available, because she’s somebody now, and could possibly win.

    Tell me if i’m completely off base, or tell me there may be some truth to my way of thinking.

    Hi Sarge – thanks for your response. “qualified” was a bad choice of words, I’ll concede that to you. Hell, according to the Constitution, I’m qualified to be a Senator but my education, training and life experiences just have not prepared me to serve very well in that capacity. No matter how deep you look into O’Donnell’s past, I don’t think you’ll find any education, training or life experience that any “reasonable” person would find appropriate for service in the U.S. Senate. I’ll also concede that there may be others in the Senate that would fall into this category but that in no way is justification to give her a pass.

    However, I don’t agree with your “publicity” arguement. I think Part 2 will happen regardless of Part 1 if the anonymous big money powers-that-be would want to try to win that seat for her. So IMO the best strategy is to make as many people in Delaware as possible aware of her shortcomings and hope the sensible people (R, I or D) get out and vote.

    BTW, US Army ’70 to ’72.

    Mad Hatter – Fair enough compromise. I agree we don’t need any more clueless congress persons or senators (from any party
    ). I don’t want to give anyone a pass. I just think it’s a mistake to keep bringing her name up nationally, it attracts attention and money. The people of Delaware are the ones who will decide, so thats where issues need to be addressed. The candidates should hold a debate so Del. voters can see who/what they’re voting for.

    Thank you for your service! Me, US Army, 93-??.

    Ms. O’Donnell was a frequent guess on Politically Incorrect, and she ran for various national political offices (including the Senate) in the past.

    And, from what I’ve read, she is not doing any campaigning inside of Delaware, choosing instead of concentrate on national publicity. I guess to attract that money.
