    She is not representative of every Tea Party member. If she does not know that there is only one constitution and if she does not know what is in the Constitution, she is worthless.

    I do not understand the idea of "Separation of Speech and Thought" Does this mean, no thought before you speak?

    I'll be the first to admit that shes no brilliant thinker....... but seriously?.... I suppose you believe Palin said she could see Russia from her porch as well?

    When you take fake news such as the Borowitz Report and spread it as the truth then youre doing nobody any favors

    I guess if this is where democrats get all their facts from it finally explains a lot

    Borowitz is funny because he is a clever comedian, and Fox News is funny because it sounds just like Christine O'Donnell?

    I enjoy political satire and what's the harm really? Who's going to really believe that a congressman said that Guam could capsize or that Obama claimed that he visited 57 states?

    the difference being that a congressman DID say guam could capsize....... and obama DID say he visted all 57 states......

    yes I do enjoy political satire as much as the next guy..... of course the harm comes when people dont know the difference and they truely believe the satire is real...... as in the earlier example I pointed out....... the majority of the world truely believes Palin said she could see russia from her porch...... simply because it was stated in a skit on SNL and Dems ran with it as truth...... you do a google search on this story about O'Donnell you'll find that many liberal news sources have already ran the story as fact..... so now you have how many people believing she said this

    as I said... I dont claim shes a brilliant thinker.... and many of the statements shes ACTUALLY made leave you wondering how she remembers to breathe.......couple this with the fact that shes clearly far behind in the polls and has no chance of winning..... why exactly are Dems so afraid of her that they have to spread fiction as truth

    That's ok
    our current Prez thinks we have 56/57 states
    Thing is this is a satire to make her look stupid. No one
    Has to pretend Obama is an idiot.

    How's that possible? They are both Democrats. If you've been reading this forum long enough you would know that only Republicans are capable of dumb statements. ;)

  17. I lol'd at the "ali vs Frazier" comment.

    Seems to me that she's being persecuted for being an outspoken, asthetically pleasing, CONSERVATIVE female and the media hates that. It's like being a conservative black man. It breaks the stereotypical theories people hold and they lash out by distorting facts (like the "I can see Russia from my house" that is attributed to, but was never actually said, by Palin)

    If anything, O'donnell is quick witted to say the least. Sometimes it's really just about charisma. But the obviously liberally biased article (judging by the Texas Rangers/George W. Bush closing line that offers nothing to the story other than it shows how bad W. lives in the head of some liberals) is simply proof that liberals don't like pretty, conservative women.

    Funny line. Really. Please don't tell us you believe it.

    What's even funnier is that there are some Americans who think O'Donnell is bright and well-informed.
