“I want to start by asking you to think back for a moment to about a year and a half ago . . . Remember the despondency, the anxiety, even a palpable fear for the future of our country. . . . Do you remember it? I know I do. And the conservative movement was told to curl up in a fetal position and just stay there for the next eight years, thank you very much. Well, how things have changed.”
— Christine O’Donnell, Sept. 17, 2010
Imagine for a moment that Republicans were not consumed with the various faults of the party’s newly chosen Delaware Senate candidate, Christine O’Donnell. What would GOP operatives, both in Delaware and in Washington, be doing right now? They’d be attacking the record of O’Donnell’s Democratic opponent, Chris Coons. As it turns out, there’s plenty to attack, if Republicans ever get around to it.
Coons inherited a surplus. Celebrating victory on election night in 2004, he said his “top priority would be to continue balancing the budget without increasing property taxes,” according to an account in the local News Journal. Yet in 2006, he pushed through a 5 percent increase in property taxes. In 2007, he raised property taxes 17.5 percent. In 2009, he raised them another 25 percent.
Coons wanted to raise other taxes, too. He proposed a hotel tax, a tax on paramedic services, even a tax on people who call 911 from cell phones.
So here’s Coons, who never met a tax he wouldn’t raise, and all the genius intellectuals in the Beltway GOP establishment are running around saying that this Democrat can’t possibly lose.
Why? Because Christine O’Donnell doesn’t approve of masturbation?
Hey, I’ve got an idea: How about asking voters in Delaware to compare the two candidates?
No contest. And besides, she’s right: You really do masturbate too much. Cut it out, you sick freaks.
