Christine O'Donnell on Tuesday compared the "tragedy" of extending unemployment benefits to Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards. "Today marks a lot of tragedy," O'Donnell, (Snip) "Tragedy comes in threes," O'Donnell said. "Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards's passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits."

Just go away, Christine. Death, Pearl Harbor, and some federal UE extensions. One of these things are not like the other.
Its because those benefits aren’t paid for. It’s all new debt. Another broken promise from the GOP.
Then again, it might not pass Congress because leftist Democrats and conservative Republicans might not vote for it.
Shut up you crazy witch.
Christine, I like you, but my dear woman, Pearl Harbor occurred SIXTY NINE YEARS AGO! Not exactly a “trifector” there.
Actually she was referring to the Patriots/Jets game this week. The Jets were bombed like they the were sitting ducks at Pearl Harbor.
Please media, stick a camera in Maxine Water's mug, and let's see what goodies you grab from that moron.
Wow. I did not think even she can be this stupid.
Someone died and there is a corollary?
The only thing I see is a common denominator and that would be you Christine.
You sure you aren’t Joe Biden’s little sister?
Christine is so good at getting to the root of an issue. She's just like us, except she's decided that she'll never again need unemployment benefits.
I hope things work out for her between now and 2012.
Palin's made of different stuff.
Man...you all are ruthless!
I have opposed this stupid, lying, scamming woman from day one.
She lied about not paying her mortgage, she lied about her degree, she lied about a lot of things and many many freepers ignored that and still supported her.
Turd Blossom got it right.
I thought you might need to see this.
That IS what extending the unemployment benefits are.......welfare, with a different name.
Three years and counting, of unemployment benefits is paying people to NOT bother taking a job they feel is “beneath” them. Okay, that was a broad brushstroke, but many of the unemployed are doing just what I said; though not all.
I like her, but the comment is silly.
Her overall point is correct, but trying to be clever fell pretty flat.
And, anyway, its best to just note Mrs. Edwards’ passing with condolences for the family, and let it go at that without trying to be clever about it, or trying to draw some political point from it. Sometimes its best to just leave politics aside for a moment.
...other than THAT, Mrs. Lincoln...how’d yah like the play?
Most sane post on this thread. Good job.
I suppose we are in “takes one, to know one” territory here. COD needs to go into political hibernation.
