Why We Love Christine “I’m Not A Witch” O’Donnell’s Refusal To Discuss Her Anti-Gay Past

You may recall the Sarah Palin-endorsed, gay-baiting, anti-masturbation, pro-AIDS, former witch and Delaware senatorial hopeful Christine O’Donnell who used to run an ex-gay group even though she has a lesbian sister. She went on Piers Morgan’s CNN show last night to discuss her new book, Troublemaker. What she didn’t want to discuss however is anything relating to her views on gay rights. In fact, after repeated questions about it from Mr. Morgan, she walked off the show. This is a good thing.

Not only did it mean that we didn’t have to endure a second more of her cringe-inducing appearance on television, it also belies a recent trend with anti-gay politicians who refuse to go into depth about their anti-gay views (kinda like Michele Bachmann did this weekend). Remember that even the so-called National Organization for Marriage didn’t present any witnesses to stand on public record for their anti-gay views during the Prop 8 trial. In fact, it seems that only Margaret Srivastav, Brian Brown, and hate group leaders like Tony Perkins are the only ones who will go into depth about their anti-gay views these days. Well, them and Rick Santorum, but that’s not doing him any favors either.

Oh and by the way, Christine O’Donnell is not a witch, bitch.

      It’s like a broken record with you people, but what the hell, I’ll give it another go.

      COPYEDITING.

      “Piers Morgan’s CNN show last night to discuss her new book, Troublemaker.” There is no subject in that syntax.

      “…it also belies a recent trend…” The word “belies” means the precise opposite of what you appear to be trying to use it to mean here.

      Now, to be actually on topic, the more we can get these idiots to show themselves up on camera, the better. The fact that they’re not willing to talk about how hateful they are can only mean they know it’s something to be embarrassed about.

      This seems to be the modus operandi for the far right. They only know what they are told to believe and when hosts go off topic for a bit they walk out. I waiting to see Maggie’s arm come out of her back

      Yes yes yes, keep on these horrible, hateful women! What’s great is that they KNOW they can’t discuss their anti-gay stance with a person of intelligence.

      I am hoping that young people who think that some day they might want to run for office will be more careful in espousing anti-gay views or joining anti-gay organizations because it might come back to haunt them. That will be good because then the anti-gay groups are going to lose support.

      People like Christine and Michelle are all happy to dump on teh gays until they realize that it might actually harm them. Good! Let’s keep reinforcing that message. Seems like the GOP advisors are getting the message.

      It’s the same with bachmann and the other GOP plebes – talk up the anti-gay rhetoric when you’re preaching to your chosen demographic of redneck white-boy racists and the women they knocked up, and then claim to not “focus on the gays” when the Big Time Cameras are on you.

      fucking pathetic.

      This woman is an idiot.

      And let’s not forget to show a little love to Piers Morgan who pushed when it would have been easier not to.

      And, David Gregory, pushed w/ Bachman (personally, I think it’s b/c he understood that once Perry announced, Bachman would be over)…

      But, as the entry states, It IS good news that their bigotry doesn’t play the same way on the big-screen of a national audience & they know it.

      Perry’s Xtians only spirit-party is going to come back to him as well. What plays in TX often gives the rest of the country, the shivers!

      Back to topic.

      Did anyone actually see Christine “I’m Not a Witch” O’Donnell walk off the stage or did she climb aboard her broom and fly away?

      @christopher di spirito:

      EdWoody is correct. The writer is not.

      When you become an adult, you realize are rules to everything. When you drive, you are expected to use the proper side of the road and follow the signs. When you write, you are expected to use proper grammar. Failure to follow the rules makes a person appear stupid, sloppy and incompetent.

      I cannot fathom why you’d find the person who is correct to be more annoying.

      Ah, yes, 2012, America’s Big Gay Election — the nation wants to know — what did you say about gay folks, and when did you say it, and to whom — and have you changed your views? My, my, not a candidate forum or TV interview of any politician will go without the gay question: What will you do to solve what you think is the “gay problem”? I always like asking, on many a hetero website — “How many billions will you spend to make us all into the heteros you desire us to be? And with what gun at my head?” I just laugh my tuckus off. Why, their faces! Priceless. Reminds me of ye olde gay bar raids, with which I’m acquainted, when the lights were turned up, and we had to empty our pockets, and the inquisitors in our faces demanding to know: what about the gay thing? My, my, have the times changed; for the better. Yah.

      @the crustybastard: Really? You cannot ‘fathom’? Miserable young people, turn into miserable old people. If you really want to know the answer, consult MizzManners, who will tell you it is the person correcting without provocation that falls into the category of rude.

      This was yet another topic of interest, hi-jacked by idiots trying to convince themselves they’re relevant.

      Yawn. I’m so f’n bored of you, I could barely finish typing that sentence.

      Fathom, indeed. Jeesh.

      Piers: “I’m still here!” LoL

      I hate when homophobes don’t want to discuss why they’re homophobic, i’ve dealt with many of them on Youtube like they’ll say “Oh I’m not homophobic but I don’t like gay people” & i’ll ask them why but they just usually end up with “Well we have different opinions so there’s no use talking about it” -_-

      @christopher di spirito: Sources close to O’Donnell say that while she prefers traveling by broom, she’s been favoring a Hummer that runs on dolphin blood so as not to give off the impression that she worries about global warming.

      Why are there so many bat-shit crazy Republic women these days? Palin, Bachman, ol’ Maggie dearest, and now this fucking bitch?! They make Santorum look positively charming in comparison. Who in the Teabagging Party decided to dial up the crazy *extra* high on anyone without a Y chromosome?

      @JM: I think ut’s obvious that you’d have to be batshit crazy to be a woman or gay man and vote Republican, a party which completely and consistently votes 100% against women’s rights and gay rights. I see it akin to battered women’s syndrome or Stolkholm Syndrome. They are either so greedy or hate minorities so much that that trumps their own self interests. Remember, the GOP voted 100% against giving women the vote.

      @LandStander:

      Yes, I made a mistake. I was typing on a tiny screen with my thumbs. Furthermore, I’m not making a living writing for a website, and because of that, I didn’t have cause to run my post past an editor before I published it.

      A professional writer would. Or rather, should. That is the point, but I’m not surprised you missed it.

      @the crustybastard: If you’re going to be patronizing and say things like,
      “Failure to follow the rules makes a person appear stupid, sloppy and incompetent.”
      Then you best prepare for every one of your posts to be picked to pieces.

      For the record, “Or rather, should.” is a fragment and should have been integrated into the previous sentence. Actually, that whole last post is a structural nightmare. You also keep neglecting your oxford comma. Since you’ve made it clear you’re not a journalist you have no excuse for leaving it out.

      Anyway, I do enjoy watching these NOM pledge signing anti-gay politicians flail. I love how they know that their crap won’t fly outside of a homophobic audience. They shut right up when you sit them down with someone who will actually question their logic.
