This is hilarious: fun with senate candidates!


Christine O'Donnell

Do you know who this is? This is the woman who was running as the Republican candidate for Joe Biden's senate seat. Her name is Christine O'Donnell. She was going to lose so badly that no one even bothered to do a poll for the race.

Now Biden is VP and the Democrats must find someone who can run in his place to maintain the seat. While it's not likely, there's the off chance that this new person will collapse under the weight of gaffes or scandals or some other unforeseen consequence.

While it's likely that O'Donnell's senate career will end before it has begun, it would be a hilarious bit of political drama worthy of the attempted spin-off of the West Wing if O'Donnell managed to make her way to the senate. At least if she doesn't appear to be a politician, she's not as unsettling as:


Bob Kelleher
Bob Kelleher, Republican candidate for Montana, who loves his kerchief.

Bob Tingle
This man's name is Bob Tingle. Tingle. Would you, as a voter, let him tingle you?[Republican challenger for Rhode Island]


Scott Kleeb
Scott Kleeb, Democratic challenger for Nebraska. Since when did they start casting former stars of Dawson's Creek for unwinnable seats?


Tom Udall
Tom Udall, Democratic challenger and likely winner of New Mexico's open seat, a Nicholas Cage look-alike who thinks that the best photos are always taken in front of pseudo-picturesque mountainscapes.

So, Biden doesn't believe that Obama can win the Presidency?

Why is Biden still running for the U.S. Senate at the same time, if he really believes that Obama is going to become President?

Looks like even Biden knows we are going to swear in President McCain and VP Condoleeza Rice!

that IS interesting. i wonder what her curriculum vitae is, and how long she has been into politics.

love the kerchief.

i think that creep Dick Morris who always provides such anti-Clinton, anti Democratic "commentary" would be a better candidate for Biden's seat, should he cross over again, maybe he's just as pretty, too.

2 years later, it looks like she won the Delaware Primary.....looks like her political career ended before it started....I sure hope you haven't quite your day job with your predictions.
