WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Christine O'Donnell, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Delaware, says news reports misrepresented her debate with Democrat Chris Coons.
In an interview with ABC News, O'Donnell argued that she won an exchange with Coons last week over the First Amendment. She said she succeeded in making her point that the Constitution does not use the phrase "separation of church and state" while Coons was unable to recite the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment.
"It's really funny the way that the media reports things," she said. "After that debate my team and I we were literally high fiving each other thinking that we had exposed he doesn't know the First Amendment, and then when we read the reports that said the opposite we were all like 'What?'"
While O'Donnell continues to get support from conservative figures like Rush Limbaugh, Meghan McCain, the daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain, called her a "nut job" during an appearance on ABC's "This Week."
"All you have to do is laugh," O'Donnell said. "She's a blogger, and she's entitled to say whatever she wants."

That is in the First Amendment
Earth to Odonnell: Facts and Truth are irrelavent to the media.
Isn’t she the daughter on Family Guy?
Meghan McCain is the nut-job. She needs to do us all a favor and shut the heck up.

Dan Rather found out otherwise. So did John Kerry.
Obama is as I write this.
The internet is the great equalizer. ;)
A little more from the ABC interview.
I’m really posting it because it has an Elvira parody of her “not a witch” ad that’s a chuckle.
Meghan McCain should be very careful about using the term “nut job” because Meghan is the only one between the two of them that could just wind up in a “nut house.”
Thanks for the ping, and especially the pic! :-)
People need to actually see this debate before commenting. It was humiliating for Republicans and Conservatives everywhere. The entire audience was laughing at her, there is no way she thought she won this is just a clear attempt at spin on her part.
Christine definitely cost us the seat in Delaware, and she may end up costing us Pennsylvania too.
You signed up today to make that post?
How kind of you to sign up today to make this very important comment. You’ll find most of us on FR think for ourselves.
I’m almost tempted to give this post the HK409 treatment.
Heck, I’m going for it:
3ML definitely cost us the seat in 3ML, and she may end up costing us 3ML too.
Man, that’s just pathetic.
I smell ozone and the hairs on my arms are standing up.
Karl! Buddy! Welcome to Free Republic!
A couple of O’Donnell bashers were zotted the other day...this is probably one of them...
Us? When you are here a few years, and have a track record, we may let you use that pronoun.
Oh, btw, welcome to FR.
Just how disappointed are your parents these days?
