First things first: The Pink Flamingo’s main objection to the primary in Delaware was the celeb endorsements. As I stated during NY-23, and I will state again, I think it is wrong, immoral, cheating, dirty, and horribly arrogant of our celeb politicians to step in and manipulate state/local elections where they do not reside in either the state or locally. It is not about winning, it is about egos. It is about the accumulation of political power.
Now, back to our story.
“May every mistake you have ever made come back to haunt you and may your noses be rubbed in all of your mistakes.” Runaway Bride (Richard Gere)
Did Christine O’Donnell kick my dog while she was being abducted by aliens? If you believe that one, then I have some oceanfront property in Cochise County I can sell to you at a discounted rate.
One of my favorite chick flicks is The Runaway Bride. There is a scene where everyone is slamming Julia Roberts’ character for her past mistakes. Richard Gere’s character (he looked so good in the movie) stands up and defends her mentioning that he hoped that every mistake the people making fun of Roberts’ character will come back to haunt them.
If one were to judge Christine O’Donnell by the sensationalist headlines, then you might be led to think she must be the dumbest, stupidest, most evil individual ever born. The only thing The Pink Flamingo has not seen about her is the headline that she was abducted by aliens. I expect to see that headline before the week ends.
Two things are at play here, either she is the dumbest, stupidist, most evil individual ever born, or she is scaring the heck out of the Dems. There may be an 11 point split in the polls, but you don’t carpet bomb someone who is going to go down in flames.
Have you ever done anything you regret?
Are you even human?
Why would anyone want to ever want to run for public office and have every little mistake they have made magnified into a super-market tabloid headline?
Maybe O’Donnell needs to be nominated for a profiles in courage award for putting up with the you know what that is being said about her. It is nasty. It is also a warning: Don’t run for office. It is a warning for us all: Don’t run for office.
I don’t even want to make a list of things that people could make fun of me and use against me if I were running for office. I would sound like a nut. My finances would look worse than hers. My personal life would be open to ridicule because I have no personal life. I’ve even had papers served on me to go to court over a credit card. My story sounds as crazy as one of O’Donnell’s crazy stories (which is why she gets the benefit of the doubt). And, yes, I beat the sleazy collection agency in court. It cost more to fight them than it did to pay the trumped-up bill, but I drew a line in the sand.
Have you ever said anything or associated with people who would now make you cringe? Been there, done that. Lord have mercy!
More power to the woman for going ahead with her plans and her campaign. Perhaps she should be held up as an example to us all!
Yea, I think she is a screw-up, then again so am I.
Life happens. Normal people do stupid things all the time. We get stupid photos taken of us, usually by family and friends. We get traffic tickets, forget to pay bills on time, and over draw the checking account. We run out of gas. We trip over a crack in the sidewalk and break a bone. Oh, people who run for office don’t do that. I guess I’m disqualified.
I would gather, so are you.
