Skip to comments.Can’t Take Their Eyes off Her - The Christine O’Donnell phenomenon

. . .
The CNN debate was the tipping point, ODonnell told me. This was before the new poll showed her gaining on Coons. We shattered my opponents glass jaw, she says. Youre going to hear the glass falling on the floor.
She wont be lacking for money. Since the primary, shes raised $4 million, enough to pay for tougher TV ads attacking Coons. I believe hes gotten a free ride so far. Indeed he has. As a college senior, he wrote about being a bearded Marxist. It was a joke, he says, and the press has accepted his explanation at face value.
ODonnells life has been scrutinized far more aggressively. It was discovered she had dabbled in witchcraft as a teenager, and reporters took this revelation seriously. So did ODonnell in her first ad. Im not a witch, she said. Im you. The ad was controversial, but it more or less put the issue to rest.
Now were about to see a whole new Christine ODonnell, she says. New or not, well see a lot of her. Shes a political star, a celebrity, and the press cant take its eyes off her.

I’m pretty sure you have that right on the money.
Weekly Standard was certainly pro Castle.
Kristol trashed her, Barnes trashed her, Stephen Hayes trashed her, and Mary Katharine Ham wanted to trash her but took a more neutral position because she was getting an earful on Twitter and Facebook.
Heard her on Mark Levin tonight. She is a sharp lady, and oddly enough for a politician these days, seems to have a fair dose of common sense. I hope she slams the ‘rats in the election, she is exactly the kind of person we need in Congress.
And they have since learned NOT to mess with Christine.
She was VERY GOOD on Mark Levin show tonight Yes!
I think the Tea Party won't pull this one off and may be hurt by this quick to support, as Palin. Has nothing to do with the witch craft and/or anatomical self-induced therapy. It's all ongoing: I promise to cut this.. babble and he's a Marxist etc--evolution is made up...but let the schools decide.. blah blah.
Can she run a company? What's more a state? Has she ever run anything, done anything which has made for job creation?
I think it comes down to looking at her own published BIO, her web page and reading really nothing of substance..then having to actually resort to a "shaky" wikipedia bio, am stumped why she would be more or even as qualified than anyone here reading this post.
Had to have been someone better who could have run. Maybe being a little bitty state; but nevertheless, albeit a corporate island in of its own, there is surprisingly not much to choose from?
Coons is still available.
Well, what do you think? They’ve come around? What do you think that’s about?
I’m guessing the choice of debate prep coaches was reassuring to them.
She definitely is. She really is the one that conservatives should all want.
At least Christine never poisoned anyone.
I think the elites in the media are guided by polls, and Kristol and Barnes didn’t want to be dropped off the cocktail circuit. Despite their best efforts to trash her, O’Donnell didn’t get involved with that nonsense. She’s smart, she’s focused and she’s a hell of a lot better for this country than some pencil-necked Marxist.
Senators don't run states, governors do. All she has to do is cast a conservative vote and she will do just that. Christine is FAR better than Castle or Coons, it was NOT a mistake in any way for the Tea Party to support her it was absolutely the RIGHT thing to do. She may very will win this, we will see. In any case though, the Tea Party did right, and Rove and gang did wrong. Go Christine! Go Sarah!
Good luck on this one, was just my opinion and I could be entirely wrong--and will just listen to "the feeling".
Convince me she has done something...anything..made a difference?
Well, if you don’t like O’Donnell, you can support that pencil-necked Marxist Coons or write in the name of that RINO scum Mike Castle.
She has fought hard for things like saving the life of someone who was in a Terri Schiavo situation.
Again, all she needs to do as a Senator is vote right.
Christine is a GOOD person. Coons is EVIL. Is that sufficient for you?
Christine tries to keep people from getting killed. Saves lives.
Coons poisons people. See PFOA and Gore-tex and Coons.
Good vs Evil.
Senators don’t run states. They vote. That’s all she has to do. Just vote, while listening carefully to her constituency, and not being corrupted by the DC Dazzle. I think she can do that. It’s not rocket science. Will her vote be better on any given day than Coons? Guaranteed. This is a no brainer. Wish I had her to vote for. In my state, Illinois (blushing with shame), we only have a mega-RINO, Mark Kirk. OK with the idea of sucking the brains out of babies. Voted for Cap & Tax before he didn’t like it anymore. Seriously. Can we trade candidates?
Understand I want a R in there but gimme a break..we cant be always led around because the Tea Party and Palin said so..they could be wrong just once??
It's like choosing the last kid when making up teams.
