I’m a Tea Party guy. I don’t just go to rallies, I speak at them. And I believed in this less-taxing/less-spending/small-government stuff waaaaay before it was cool. Like, I made Reagan look squishy.
Please keep all that in mind when I say: Christine O’Donnell might just be about 17 different kinds of crazy. Now about 11 of those ways are the exact kinds of crazy I think Washington needs big tons more of — but the other six just leave me scratching my head and wondering how the hell she happened in Delaware. That’s like hearing a DJ spin up “Stairway To Heaven” in a gay club, or that Larry King got picked up on an indecent exposure charge.
But let’s get back on topic with a recap:
1. I’m nuts, always have been.
2. O’Donnell is nuts, even more so than I am.
And yet — O’Donnell raised half a million dollars yesterday.
Half a million bucks.
The woman too crazy for me, even when I was making something of a career out of dating the crazy ones, got half a million dollars in a single day. All so that she can continue to wage a campaign which everyone agrees is just hopeless.
So what happened? Did the United States go insane?
Well, no — not exactly.
It’s just that we’re governed by Democrats.
That can do things to a country.
