Last we heard from failed Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell, pundits and bloggers were marveling that the truth-stretching Tea Party darling managed to finish her midterm race with almost $1 million dollars in the bank. And we aren't rid of her yet, according to a report in The Hill: O'Donnell is starting a PAC inventively called ChristinePAC. Why would we want to be rid of a politician so talented, so electrifying in front of a bank of cameras that she today compared the extension of unemployment benefits to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (approximately 2,500 dead)?
"Today marks a lot of tragedy," O'Donnell, the Tea Party-backed GOP Senate candidate from Delaware, said Tuesday night during an appearance in Virginia.
"Tragedy comes in threes," O'Donnell said. "Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards's passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits."
I bet Delaware voters are kicking themselves today.
