Tea Party wingnut Christine O’Donnell is back and she’s considering a Senate run, like her buddy Sarah Palin, Alaska’s Quitter-in-Chief. O’Donnell is interested in challenging Sen. Chris Coons, who defeated her in a 2010 special election for Senate, Wilmington News Journal reports.
Christine O’Donnell tweeted about a potential Senate run Tuesday, slamming Delaware’s Senate Minority Whip Greg Lavelle (R-Sharpley) for saying she needed to make a decision on throwing her hat in the race immediately. Um, I am sure the Democrats are doing cartwheels over the prospect of Christine ‘not a witch’ O’Donnell running for the Senate seat.
Lavelle said, “The decision to run is a big one, particularly for a United States Senate seat. There’s a lot of variables involved. But to run a serious race, or give somebody else the ability to run a serious race, you don’t [decide] in May of 2014. You do that now,” according to the Wilmington News Journal. All I can say is that the 2014 and 2016 elections will be very interesting to watch. I am not a betting person, but if Sarah Palin and Christine O’Donnell run, that will result in two sure seats for the Democratic Party.
Here are some reasons why the GOP is cringing over a possible Christine O’Donnell run:
–It took O’Donnell seventeen years to get her bachelor’s degree from Farleigh Dickinson University, apparently due to her outstanding debt to the university.
–There were charges of misuse of campaign funds from the 2010 election.
–Former aides charged Christine O’Donnell never paid some of her staff from her 2008 campaign, and did not reimburse them for out of pocket expenses.
–She was once the subject of an IRS tax lien, and her home was almost foreclosed upon.
–The anti-sex, anti-masturbation candidate was the subject of a Gawker.com story written by a guy who claims he had a one night stand with her. Source: Addicting Info
There are many factors in my decision to run in 2014. Number 1 is my parents' health. Lavelle can't appreciate that?
