Research Proves Christine O’Donnell Is Correct Again (With a Cherry on Top!)

Posted on | September 24, 2010 | 30 Comments

An Australian researcher crunches the numbers and determines that the number of premarital sexual partners is directly correlated with the incidence of divorce. Which is to say, the more you screw around before marriage, the greater likelihood your marriage will end in divorce. And in terms of marital stability, the ideal number of pre-marital partners is . . . uh, zero.

Wintery Knight has lots more research with charts and stuff. And Steven Crowder makes a startling admission:

Yes, I admit it, I’m in a long-term relationship and I’m abstinent.

Wow. If you’ve ever seen Steven Crowder’s girlfriend, she’s smokin’ hot. I’m talking crawl-through-broken-glass-just-to-get-downwind-of-her hot.

So if Crowder can resist gettin’ busy with that kind of spectacular hotness, what’s your excuse?

Liberals who think they can score points by making a big deal of Christine O’Donnell’s career as an abstinence advocate? Just a bunch of wankers.


UPDATE: Liberals think this video from 2003 is supposed to be the silver bullet that kills Christine the Teenage Witch:

O’Donnell argues that teenagers are “not dogs in heat,” but are rational creatures who are capable of acting intelligently in their own best interests. Scandalous!

Please note that the author of this WaPo item about O’Donnell’s 2003 video, Greg Sargent, is a Journolist alumnus who said this about the Daily Caller revelations: “The real media conspiracy here is on the right. It’s a conspiracy to pretend that there’s a story here when there isn’t one.”

Of the O’Donnell video, Sargent predicts it’s going to be all over TV because it “reveals rather clearly how ambitious and zealous her abstinence crusade really was.” And this is relevant to O’Donnell’s Delaware Senate campaign . . . how?

Never mind: There are right-wingers ginning up fake stories, Sargent warns, while he is using his WaPo blog  to . . . gin up stories.

Said it before, and I’ll say it again: You can’t accuse liberals of having no standards. They’ve got exactly two — one for them and one for everybody else.

    The greatest regret my first wife and I had was not waiting.

    Excuse: I wasn’t a Christian at the time, hormones were raging, and the opportunity presented itself. Yet, semper fidelis to the same woman for 27 years, so I’ve got that going for me.

    Sure, but I’m betting there is an even greater correlation between the number of POST-marital sexual partners and the likelihood of divorce . . .

    That is an interesting statistic. It certainly goes against the conventional wisdom that we have all been fed for the last 35 years. From the media we live in, you would think that people who wait until marriage are doomed to get restless and divorce as soon as the midlife crisis hits, if not before.

    Perhaps waiting, if not until marriage, but at least until the relationship is serious, allows young men and women to be more discerning and explore other aspects of compatibility that are meaningful to a life-long relationship. If you can get along without the sex, it’s only going to get better when you throw that into the mix.

    So where are the pictures of Crowder’s girlfriend?

    When it comes to me, well my pre married life was somewhat sybaritic. I have been 100% faithful since then (and there is a sufficient time span to be meaningful).

    When it comes to my daughters, Christine O’Donnell and a convent-esque celebate life is the way to go until lawful wedded marriage.

    Okay. Crowder’s girlfriend is hot.

    Oh, yeah, totally. Same way with any Dad nowadays.

    DAD: “Stay away from my daughter!”

    BOY: “She can’t come out and play Legos?”

    DAD: “Look, punk, don’t try that lame old ‘play Legos’ crap with me. I know what you’re after. (Slams door.) Damn four-year-old perverts!”

    As far as admiring Crowder’s girlfriend, this excerpt from a certain film may help explain…


    MEDIUM SHOT –– as George crosses the street. He spots Ernie and his cab, and Bert the motor cop,
    parked alongside.

    GEORGE: Hey, Ernie!

    ERNIE: Hiya, George!

    GEORGE: Hi, Bert.

    BERT: George . . .

    GEORGE: Ernie, I’m a rich tourist today. How about driving me home in style?

    Bert opens the door of the cab and puts George’s suitcase inside.

    ERNIE: Sure, your highness, hop in. And, for the carriage trade, I puts on my hat.

    As George is about to enter the cab, he stops suddenly as he sees Violet (now obviously a little sex
    machine) come toward him. Her walk and figure would
    stop anybody. She gives him a sultry look.

    REVERSE ANGLE –– The three men by the cab, but including Violet.

    VIOLET: Good afternoon, Mr. Bailey.

    GEORGE: Hello, Violet. Hey, you look good. That’s some dress you got on there.

    CLOSE SHOT –– Violet. She reacts to this.

    VIOLET: Oh, this old thing? Why, I only wear it when I don’t care how I look.

    CAMERA PANS WITH her as Violet swings on down the sidewalk.

    REVERSE SHOT –– cab. As Violet goes by, George and Bert raise their heads above the top of the cab.

    MEDIUM SHOT –– on Violet’s back as she goes. As she crosses the street, an elderly man turns to look
    at her and is almost hit by a car that pulls up with
    screeching brakes.

    CLOSE SHOT –– George and Bert at cab. Ernie sticks his head out form the driver’s seat.

    ERNIE: How would you like . . .

    GEORGE (as he enters cab): Yes . . .

    ERNIE: Want to come along, Bert? We’ll show you the town!

    Bert looks at his watch, then takes another look at Violet’s retreating figure.

    BERT: No, thanks. Think I’ll go home and see what the wife’s doing.

    ERNIE: Family man.

    Yeah. Assuming everyone is interested in sex is a safe bet. Assuming they would like to have sex is pretty safe too. But then to go from there to saying the responsible thing for us to do is to demonstrate how everyone’s banana needs a cellophane wrap completely misses the point. We are supposed to help our kids and guide them.

    Do we teach the importance of checking the quality of the heroine before using, to avoid the unexpected overdose, or do we review the value of using sterile needles for when the kids are all down at the corner shooting up? Is that a part of the school curriculum?

    No, huh?

    And by the way, what is it with the looking at the picture of Crowders girlfriend? It’s Crowders girlfriend, not yours, Joe.

    I’m neither liberal nor conservative. But you people are freaky-deeky weird. Sex is okay, everyone. It’s not going to hurt you. You don’t have to chastise yourself to drive the impure thoughts out of your head. What happens when you get an erection? Do you sit there choking down tears of distress, taking deep breaths, saying over and over, “It’s gonna be okay. It’s gonna be okay. Go down. Please go down. Mustn’t think the bad thoughts. No bad thoughts. Orgasms BAD until marriage. I’m such a bad person if I have an orgasm and I’m not in a Christian marriage. BAD. I NEED to be cripplingly dependent on someone else! Crippling dependence=God’s love! Go down, bad thing. Go down. I mustn’t touch the bad thing.”

    You people are f*cking FREAKS. Stay in your own corner and make fun of human beings to your heart’s content. Just as long as you don’t actually move out of your own corner and bother anyone else, we’ll be fine.

    Jesus Christ. Get some emotional maturity and get your minds wrapped around the reality of sex. It’s okay. The bad thing’s not going to hurt you, I promise.

    And incidentally, the crucial argument here seems to be that any form of non-procreative sex is inherently bad. Folks, have you SEEN how many people are on this planet? I don’t think we’re in survival mode. I think it’ll be okay.

    And what about those people who aren’t Christian? Do we need to follow your standards anyway? That’s unacceptable. Come to my door preaching your cowardly, brainless, inane BS, and you’re likely to get your @$$ kicked.

    “Which is to say, the more you screw around before marriage, the greater likelihood your marriage will end in divorce.”

    Does McCain simply not understand the difference between correlation and causality? After all, it’s also true that if you attend Tea Party events you are more likely to be white.
