Christine O’Donnell Just Keeps Embarrassing Herself
Sign #45,396 America has a sick political system:
Christine O’Donnell, one of the most embarrassing Senate candidates in recent memory, has her own political action committee, ChristinePAC.
She just won’t go away. And — gasp! — she’s targeting liberals:
O’Donnell, who wrote that her losing campaign sent “shockwaves” throughout the nation, said in an e-mail to supporters Tuesday that her group will look into the groups “funded with one million dollars or more from billionaire leftist George Soros.”
“The Left keeps after me because they consider strong, Republican women a danger to their status quo,” O’Donnell wrote. “Your donation also enables me to speak out in many venues from Coast to Coast, thereby helping support a nationwide effort. This is a way that will help me counter attack our opponents and bring the battle to them.”
But she keeps embarrassing herself:
— Shockwaves? I don’t think so.
— Liberals are scared of strong Republican women? No, not at all.
— She herself is a strong Republican woman? Er, not so much.
She just wants to remain the public eye. She’s gotten a taste of it, on Bill Maher’s show (the location for many an embarrassing comment on her part), elsewhere in the media, then in the national spotlight last year, and she wants more and more, like any junkie. It’s not so much about attacking her “opponents” as it is about allowing her to “speak out in many venues.” (Um, but if she’s really go great, why does she need donations to keep her in the public eye? Shouldn’t she be invited to speak, and paid for it?)
I suspect that sensible Republicans — whatever few there are left — just want her to go away, much like, say, Sharron Angle, especially after the utter debacle of her Senate campaign, one that ended in her getting utterly crushed in November. But here she is, with her hand out, desperately trying to be a major Republican player.
Good luck with that.
