Could you even ask for a better pick-me-up on a kind of drab Monday afternoon?
Christine O'Donnell, the tea party favorite whose unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 2010 was punctuated by a television ad proclaiming "I am not a witch," says she's considering another run to represent Delaware in 2014.
"I think I owe that to my supporters, to at least consider a run," O'Donnell told Delaware Online. "People sacrificed. Not only came out of their comfort zone – sacrificed to work hard in order to win the primary. And I think that I owe it to them to give it every consideration."
You do! You totally owe it to them. And what's more, you owe it to people like me. People who rely on politicians like O'Donnell to pay their rent and put food on their families.
The way I see it, the day that she went on television and opened up her mouth and started decrying the evil of masturbation and sunbathing, she made an implicit promise to America that she would never take her very special brand of crazy away from us. And where has she been for the past two years? What are we all to do with this Christine O'Donnell-shaped hole in our hearts?
I demand that Christine O'Donnell run for office of some sort every year, from now until we get tired of her. Or until it looks like she might win.
