Christine O’Donnell: What Are You Thinking?

I was not going to post anything about Christine O’Donnell, but every time I hear news about her it makes me more and more worried that she will get elected.  I hope Delaware is smarter than that.

Below is a video in which Christine O’Donnell claims that Separation of Church and State is not in the first amendment.  While that exact phrase is not in the amendment, who hasn’t heard it before?  And is that not what everyone understands it to mean (including the U.S. Supreme Court)?  Anderson Cooper’s comments that follow are very true – and Christine O’Donnell’s comments are very worrying.  This is especially true for someone who claims to be a “constitutional expert” – based on a seven day fellowship with a conservative foundation.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hopefully, you’ve seen Christine O’Donnell’s ad claiming that she is not a witch, rather “I’m You.”

Seriously?  Christine, you are not me or anyone I know – and likely no one in Delaware, I’m sure.  If nothing else, none of us has to deny being a witch (A ridiculous claim in itself, mind you, that no one should have brought up as a serious issue for any candidate.).

SNL does a good job with this ad though:

New Blog Design

As you can clearly tell, I have changed the design of my blog.  I am hoping to use this platform as a more comprehensive website; to share more than just my blog.  I believe that the new design makes this more feasible.  I like the design and hopefully you do to.  As viewership has gone up, I’ve tried to post more and make those posts more relevant.  I am also hoping that this is a way for me to share more about myself.

The blog is no longer on the front page.  The “home” page is now static.  All old blog links should continue to work.

I have also changed the sidebar and bottom columns.  Along with this, I have added a “widget” called “SocialVibe” through which blog viewers can support a cause that I choose for free.  I saw this and thought it to be an easy way to contribute and help out a worthwhile organization.  Currently, I am supporting “To Write Love On Her Arms,” an organization that works against suicide and depression.  I have had several friends involved with their work.  Take a few minutes to give your time.

Also, some posts have ads appearing on them.  As of right now, I have not placed any ads on any posts.  as such, I am not benefiting from these ads and am not encouraging you to click on them.
