With Election Day quickly approaching, Cocky & Rude wanted to bring one of the more serious campaigners to your attention. We could spend hours dissecting the politics of the California Senate campaign or even one of the more tense nail-bitters that have developed in the past few months, but that wouldn’t be any fun for us. Instead, I have chosen to highlight some of the delightfully insightful statements of Christine O’Donnell who is running for Senate as a Republican in the great state of Delaware. Ms. O’Donnell scored a major upset a wee back when she used her Tea Party powers to take the GOP nomination from the incumbent Republican. What amazing political skill and unique strategy did she use to accomplish this task? I did some research (read: I read an article on Think Progress)Let’s have a look see.
“When a married person uses pornography, or is unfaithful, it compromises not just his (or her) purity, but also compromises the spouse’s purity.”
“The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So you can’t masturbate without lust.”
On Sex, Contraception, & STDs:
Asked by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, “You’re going to stop the whole country from having sex?” O’Donnell replied, “Yes.”
“And to me, it’s a very anti-human way to go about this. And what I mean about anti-human is even if the population is increasing, so what? So what? People aren’t bad. When did humans become a bad thing? Why is it that we have to, you know, stop people from getting pregnant?”
On the Homogays:
Asked about disparaging comments children had made about a gay peer, O’Donnell dismissed it, saying, “It’s kids being kids, that’s it.”
“People are created in God’s image. Homosexuality is an identity adopted through societal factors. It’s an identity disorder.”
And there are many more well chosen words from this woman to read out there. Perhaps the most terrifying thing about Ms. O’Donnell is so eerily similar to Sarah Palin. Her politics are reactionary and rooted in nonsense, but she is being lauded and promoted by so many. If truly hope that the voters of the state of Delaware spare us more of her hi-jinx.
