Pre-Election Round Up

Christine O'Donnell is for separation of thought and speech. The Republican party machine that thinks she should be Delaware's senator even though her closest tie to Delaware is that she defaulted on her mortgage there also doesn't mind that she doesn't know the difference between the 14th and 16th amendments. Since GOP voter turnout is directly proportional to the stupidity of the candidate, we predict she'll win Joe Biden's seat in a landslide.

Sharron Angle thinks the difference between Asians and Latinos is important--ie, they're not all just brown people--but isn't sure which is which--ie, they all look alike to her. Again, the high-functioning racist morons that pass for GOP voters are likely to elect her in a land slide.

Meanwhile, Juan Williams at NPR announced that when he sees people in "Muslim garb" on an airplane with him, he changes flights; bastion of liberal media that it is, NPR fired him for putting opinion above the news. Fox News immediately offered him a $2 million contract if he will only keep putting opinion above the news, which is to say, he'll be senator from Ohio as soon as Diebold gets the check the write-in campaign is launched.
