Christine O’Donnell is so ignorant it’s actually painful to watch. That’s why I’m not going to post the video of her debate with Chris Coons at Widener School of Law. If you do watch it, you can hear occasional gasps of disbelief from the audience, whom I assume to be mostly law students.
I think what makes this video so unbearable for me is the way O’Donnell hammily mugs for the audience, as if she sincerely believes she is scoring points and that the audience must agree with her. But the audience more likely saw her as the mutant love child of Anita Bryant and Zippy the Pinhead.
The other bit of news of teh Stupid is from the New York Times. Reporter Michael Cooper prowled about at a Republican women’s club barbecue in Huntersville, North Carolina, to interview the guests. Apparently everyone there believed their federal income taxes had been increased during the Obama Administration. When informed their federal taxes actually had been reduced, at least a few admitted they hadn’t noticed what they were paying in federal taxes.
Yet, no doubt they were mad as hell about their taxes, anyway.
