Teabagger Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware Republican nominee for Senate, hates many awesome things, including masturbation and porn. Guess what else she hates?
Haha, oh, just the distribution of condoms. Why? Because she thinks it won't stop the spread of AIDS. Talking Points Memo unearthed a hilarious C-Span video of this actual senatorial candidate from back in 1997…
After complaining that "there is a gross disproportionate allocation of funds" going to AIDS treatment and prevention in comparison to resources designated to combat heart disease, O'Donnell compared living healthier to changing the "lifestyle" that she said lead to AIDS.
"When somebody finds out that they're at high risk for heart disease, they cut out the fatty foods, they start exercising, they quit smoking. However, our approach to AIDS, when you're in a high risk behavior, is to eliminate the consequences so that you can continue in your lifestyle which brings about this disease," O'Donnell said.
Referring to people who get AIDS as victims, O'Donnell said, was "the kind of spinning with words and manipulating words that empowers the bias when it comes to AIDS."
Please, for the love of God, let there be a Palin/O'Donnell ticket in 2012. Real America needs an anti-gay, anti-orgasm, anti-condom, anti-choice duo of stupid, attractive brunettes to lead this nation to true greatness.

Tina Fey and SNL on the Make-Believe 'Sarah Palin Network' Which Will Not Be So Make-Believe in a Few Years
I give it less than a year after Oprah Winrey's network — the Oprah Winfrey Network, which is going live on January 1 — is proven to be a financial success that other celebrities start unveiling their own networks. To mind mind, the smart money is on Sarah Palin's to be rolled out after Martha Stewart's but before Corey Feldman's…

This caller states his political affiliation at the beginning of this call, but I honestly cannot remember what he says. Not that it would matter for any reason. If you were to miss the first ten seconds of this call, you might as well flip a coin to guess the political affiliation: Heads, he's a Democrat; tails, he's a Republican. Am I right?

Attention political geeks, policy dorks and legislative turdmunchers: C-Span is getting ready to steal those last few remaining unused neurons that you were planning to one day put toward having a social life…
C-Span has uploaded virtually every minute of its video archives to the Internet. The archives, at C-SpanVideo.org, cover 23 years of history and five presidential administrations and are sure to provide new fodder for pundits and politicians alike.
Just listen to these sobering Scared Straight-style warnings from Poindexters who seem to have already been sucked in by the video archive's mag-nerd-ic tractor beam…
Having free online access to the more than 160,000 hours of C-Span footage is "like being able to Google political history using the 'I Feel Lucky' button every time,” said Rachel Maddow, the liberal MSNBC host.
Ed Morrissey, a senior correspondent for the conservative blog Hot Air, said, "The geek in me wants to find an excuse to start digging."
You see what you've done, C-Span? You've found common ground between Rachel Maddow and Ed Morrissey. I hope you're happy with yourself.
