Christine O’Donnell’s “All Of Them Any Of Them” Moment

 

O'Donnell when asked to name a Supreme Court decision.

 

Wow! Did you Rocketeers see the Christine O’Donnell/Chris Coons debate on CNN last night? If that performance by O’Donnell did not put the final death-inducing stake in her candidacy’s heart, then… Oh, wait a second there, wrong analogy. Let’s try again. If that performance by O’Donnell did not resemble death-inducing water being poured upon this witch’s candidacy, then what will?

Neither the debate moderators nor Chris Coons even delved into the juicy stuff that the witchcraft dabbling, satanic-alter dating, non-masturbating, meatball-loving would-be Hare Krishna must have feared would surface during the debate. There was no need to. Christine O’Donnell committed political suicide simply by either failing to answer the position questions that she was asked, or by contradicting herself repeatedly. She truly displayed a Palinesque ability to make a fool of herself in a situation where she was forced to answer un-screened questions.

In future posts, Lynnrockets will comment upon many of the witchy woman’s blunders but today we will focus on her Sarah Palin inspired “all of them any of them” moment. Everyone remembers back in 2008 when Palin was asked by Katie Couric in a nationally televised interview, “What other (i.e. other than Roe v. Wade) Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?” The completely dumbfounded Palin answered, “Ummmmm, well let’s see, in the course of the great history of America there have been rulings that there’s never gonna be consensus by every American and there are those issues again like Roe v. Wade where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there, there would be others”. Kouric then followed-up with the completely unfair “gotcha question”, “Can you think of any?” To which Palin responded, ” Well, I would think of, of any again that could best be dealt with on a more local level that maybe I would take issue with. But, UMMM, as a mayor and then as a governor and even as a Vice President if I’m so privileged to serve, would be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today”. Translation? Sarah Palin was incapable of naming even one other Supreme Court decision.

That Palin gaffe was so widely spread across this great nation of ours that one would think that any serious future candidate for public office would hone-up on a few Supreme Court decisions. But we are talking about Tea Party darling Christine O’Donnell. She adores her “Mama Grizzly” so much that when asked exactly the same question, she mimicked her mentor to a “tea”. Let’s go to the transcript, shall we?

KARIBJANIAN:  Well, we’ve talked about the Supreme Court, and obviously a United States senator has the opportunity to determine in a way the make-up of that court.  So what opinions of late that have come from our high court do you most object to?

O’DONNELL:  Oh, gosh.  Give me a specific one, I’m sorry.

KARIBJANIAN:  Actually, I can’t, because I need you to tell me which ones you object to.

O’DONNELL:  I’m very sorry.  Right off the top of my head, I know that there are a lot, but I’ll put it up on my Web site, I promise you.

BLITZER:  Well, we know you disagree with Roe versus Wade.

O’DONNELL:  Yes, but that was — she said a recent one.

BLITZER:  Well, that’s relatively recent.

O’DONNELL:  She said, of late. Yes, well, Roe versus Wade would not put the power — sorry, it’s 30 (ph)…(CROSSTALK)

BLITZER:  But since then,  have there been any other…(LAUGHTER) BLITZER:  … Supreme Court decisions?

O’DONNELL:  Well, let me say, about Roe versus Wade, Roe versus Wade, if that were overturned, would not make abortion illegal in the United States, it would put the power back to the states.

BLITZER:  But besides that decision, anything else you disagree with?

O’DONNELL:  Oh, there are several, when it comes to pornography,
when it comes to court decisions, not just Supreme Court, but federal
court decisions to give terrorists Miranda-ized rights.

I mean, there are a lot of things that I believe that — this California decision to overturn “Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell,” I believe that there are a lot of federal judges who are legislating from the bench.

BLITZER:  That wasn’t the Supreme Court, it’s a lower court.

O’DONNELL:  That was a federal judge — that’s what I said, in
California.

Incredible! With over two years of preparation for that question, Christine O’Donnell was still unprepared to name a Supreme Court decision. Things could only have been funnier if O’Donnell was asked to name the newspapers or magazines that she reads so as to stay abreast of the news and she parroted the Palin answer, “All of them any of them”. If “imitation is the best form of flattery”, then Sarah Palin should be gushing with pride this morning.

CRAZY O’DONNELL

(sung to the Beatles song “Lady Madonna”)

Crazy O’Donnell, headed for defeat
Sarah Palin’s pal is a dumb dead-beat
Use donor’s money when you pay your rent
Did you think that money was heaven sent?

Every night you prove you are a fruit-cake
Every morning you blame everyone
Come November 2 when you lose your race
Where will you run?

Crazy O’Donnell, you sure failed your test
You and you’re Tea Party are such a mess

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da…
You’re dead and done

Crazy O’Donnell, all those things you said
About not masturbating in your own bed

Thank God your campaign will soon be ending
Then you can go back where you came from
The things you said we were not comprehending
Not even one

Crazy O’Donnell, could not take the heat
Now we laugh as she goes down in defeat.
