The inflated self-image of Christine O'Donnell


From TPM:
Failed GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is back, and she's telling supporters she wants her newly formed political action committee ChristinePAC to "investigate and counter attack leftwing groups." ...

"The Left keeps after me because they consider strong, Republican women a danger to their status quo," O'Donnell wrote. "Your donation also enables me to speak out in many venues from Coast to Coast, thereby helping support a nationwide effort. This is a way that will help me counter attack our opponents and bring the battle to them."

ChristinePAC is based out of O'Donnell's Delaware home, raising concerns for ethics groups given that O'Donnell is already under investigation for alleged misuse of campaign funds.

O'Donnell also claims that President Barack Obama and the White House regarded her "as their number one opponent."

Funny, huh? This is Christine "I am not a witch" O'Donnell, anti-masturbation campaigner and nationwide laughingstock in the November elections (though still getting 40% of the vote, to Delaware's shame). I'm sure the White House must be terrified.

This is like Sharron Angle thinking about running for President. Or like John Bolton, who couldn't get confirmed as Ambassador to the UN, likewise. What kind of self-image do these people have, anyway? The rest of America is laughing at them, but they sure preen when they look in a mirror.

Add in Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, not to mention Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, and you've really got to wonder if Republicans took out an option on crazy.
