Leave Christine O'Donnell Alone! :( (vanity rant)
vanity

Posted on 08/31/2011 9:07:38 PM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network

Look.

I'm pretty happy most days reading FR...

It's the one place mostly-intelligent people meet to discuss important issues with decency, mixed with just the right amount of strongly held opinions.

But for crying out loud, lay off Christine O'Donnell already.

Is this how we treat our own?

Save your distaste for the one person truly responsible for losing that election, in that Senate race:

KARL ROVE.

That merits repeating: KARL ROVE cost O'Donnell the election. And yet - O'Donnell who had the bal...feminine charms to stand up and try to WIN, is mercilessly pilloried right here on the one forum which should be sticking up for her!

I am deeply disappointed over the treatment O'Donnell is receiving here.

It does not reflect well on this site imho when we act like jealous school yard bullies. This poster encourages some of you, to please lay off.

You're not helping anyone being so nasty.

And frankly, it seems catty.

(rant off)

Who’s she and why does she deserve her own thread? Can she sing better than Amy Whitehouse?

Amy Winehouse is dead, so yeah, Christine O’Donnell can sing better than she can.

Why the dismissal of O’Donnell on FR? Her silly walk off on CNN while pimping her book didn’t help her any. She knows she is a lightening rod for disdain and ridicule by the left. Why go on CNN? If you are going on, you had better be able to handle a light weight Commie like Piers Morgan and not fold like a cheap umbrella. There is also the new information that by all accounts, her team lied about her and Palin’s relationship to get a spot at the IA Tea Party event.

I understand you sadness over this. I sent cash to her campaign a few time thinking she could win. It just appears now that she is not ready for prime time and needs to move on to a regular day job like everyone else. Her delusion that she is the next Sarah Palin isn’t going to pan out.

Christine O’Donnell being picked on?

Links?

Here, Really?

I haven’t even seen anything recently.

Last thing I saw on her was where she was going to sue regarding the witch thing....

She got batted around because her chances of collecting any damages is <1% because she has to prove she would have won if it wasn’t for this.

Is this what you are talking about?

I don’t think anyone just gets shouted down on these boards on this side of the aisle........maybe they were just making good logical arguments that hurt ... everyone is wrong ever once in a while

I believe Chrissy has a good political career still ahead of her. She’s made a few missteps in her life, but.....thanks be unto God that all MY screw-ups through the years are not put up on a JumboTron for all the sinless people here on FR to nitpick.

That’s why I love Jesus so much. He said in John_8:11: “And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

And John, the Beloved Apostle added even more assurance to it: “1st John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1st John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1st John 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

You and I part company on every utterance from the other, but boy am I with you on this one. COD is harmless, not politically as astute as she should have been, but what echos in my mind is that she was AHEAD in that race! That is, before the Rove & Co., Establishment hired on to save Castle and destroy her? Christine was as true an example of citizen representation as I’ve seen, who did not come up through the “machine”. A shoe string and nothing. She couldn’t afford real handlers, consultants and advisors and that is probably what killed her campaign against the RINO establishment. Since then, it seems every one has to be seen throwing stones at her to prove their own testosterone.

I still don’t get what was behind the horror of the Palin handlers to Christine’s appearance in Iowa either. Was that even true? The thing was over dumping COD from the event? A threat to whom exactly could a banished former candidate, who is running for nothing, be? COD is trying to rehabilitate her image, sell a book and make a few friends. Who should care, really? The girl does have a story to tell. Good for you to end the unnecessary bashing.
God forbid.

That's the thing Tucker. A little forsight never hurts. Even if I had the wealth and the looks to be a politician, I'd pass because I have the good sense to know that every journalist from PBS to National Review would get lost in my closet looking at all the skeletons.

You might believe she has a political career ahead of her, but I'm willing to bet you've been wrong about other things too.

She’s not a witch. If she was a witch she’d have done a spell and gotten elected.

Wow! Who knew that Karl Rove controlled 17% of the electorate in Delaware. I had NO IDEA he controlled that big chunk of the voters in Delaware. I guess that's why President Bush won Delaware in 2000 and 2004. Oh wait - it didn't...

Seriously, Karl MIGHT have cost O'Donnell a couple of points at worst; she ran a poor campaign and earned at least 14 points of her crushing defeat all on her own.

All you say is probably true, but as I posted, she still has curb side caliber “handlers” who are still not professional and is probably too broke to fix it and, yes, sadly, too naive to buck them and stay home. She gave a splendid performance at a Republican womens forum, on CSpan, and they were quite moved by her experience and seemed to love her very much.

Do you mind saying what you think about the reports of COD as the reason for the Palin appearance issue? Was that even true? Frankly, that doesn’t even sound like Sarah. You know the saying, “I’ve been kicked out of worse bars than this!” Why wouldn’t the Palin people take that track? Sarah isn’t responsible for Christine’s poor standing with RINOs. Just wondering, and can’t find a soul addressing that. Other than the usual....Palin genius and clairvoyance. I bet it had more to do with the Palin supporter, Crow, who had been told SP wasn’t running and so was interested in Perry. Talk about a citizen, poor guy was over his head to announce that she wasn’t running. What do you think? Which, or both?

Should we be concerned we’ve now agreed on two things?

I am so not believing Palin even cares about whether O’Donnell is wherever she chooses to go. I just don’t get it, at all.

Seems to me, the whole tempest in the teapot was a bunch of amped-up political operatives. Inside baseball between too-beltway advisors or something. The whole thing seemed bizarre.

I just don’t get how Palin would have the slightest care about this. In fact, I’d go so far as to say she might stand up for O’Donnell. The treatment they both receive, isn’t really very different.

I agree with you. Once again.

“One of our own”? No way. We can do better. Idealogy isn’t enough. She was a weak flaky candidate. She is no longer running for office so you want to support her for what? Her book tour?

I wish her well and hope she sells a lot of books and finds a more suitable career.

Karl Rove didn’t cost her an election. O’Donnell did it to herself (no - not masturbation). It was certainly an entertaining election to watch someone actually putting out an ad claiming they are not a witch.

So we can do better and need to support good strong candidates.

Why doesn't she lay off US? We are sick of her irrelevance. I appreciate her knocking off Mike Castle, but she then wold not keep her stupid mouth shut during the general campaign. And her claim that she didn't approve the witch ad is not credible. She was either naive or advised badly and went with RINO ad man Fred Davis' fatal concept. (BTW, Davis is now supporting Obama not-so-secret agent Jon Huntsman, which makes one think the witch ad was deliberate).

O’Donnell lost the election. If Karl Rove could lose the election for her, it’s BECAUSE she wasn’t a good enough candidate. If a candidate can be derailed by a pundit, it’s their own fault.

I still think we should leave her alone. She was considered a good conservative, she kept Castle from getting the election. Sarah Palin endorsed her, for goodness sake.

THe only reason I see her getting attacked now is because some people think she is upsetting the apple cart at an amateur-hour Tea Party event.

She was never ahead in that race. There was ONE poll, taken months before the primary vote, where she was 2 points ahead with a huge number of undecideds.

At no point in the last three months before the election did she come close to being ahead of Coons.

However the misunderstanding is understandable. The O’Donnell cheerleaders for a long time would mislead the readers by quoting that early poll, and ignoring each month’s new disastrous poll results. This dishonesty was the first warning that told me something was very very wrong in this campaign.

There was only one point at which I thought she might win, and that was after she got millions of dollars in that 24-hour money marathon.

My hope was she’d take that money, hire a couple of veteran cmapaign folks, who could do two or three hard-hitting ads that emphasized conservative principles that would turn our economy around.

Instead, she got talked into doing a witch commercial, she cancelled her weekend show appearances, and ended up with money in the bank.

It really amazes me (I'm not just saying that for effect, either) the number of grown men here on FreeRepublic who call themselves "conservative" who enjoy picking on, insulting, and bullying women. It makes me want to vomit.

These are not men. They are craven, petulant little boys who happen to be old. They are deplorable examples of either an atrocious upbringing, a low intellect, or both. They also know who they are, and shame is their lasting legacy.

Thank you, Cringing. Some of us like and admire Christine but we get shouted down by a lot of woman-haters here at FR. I do believe Rove wrecked the election for her and HE should be attacked, not her.

I’m going to enjoy reading her book.

Yes, we have some very strange old men on FR who enjoy not only vilifying women candidates but also attacking female freepers. I can’t begin to tell you how often I’ve been attacked for supporting Christine, Sarah & Michelle. Everything from “go take a Midol,” to “go back to the kitchen.” (And when they learn I’m from NYC - then they just wish death on me during a hurricane!!)

We do have people like 2ndDivisionVet, though, who rides above the hate and rancor.

Yep and he is the sole reason I will never support her again.

I’m sitting here minding my own business and this guy comes off with some cockamamy charge that I’m a DU’r, KOS, etc.

So tore into him and discovered the guy is probably a stalker, worships Christine(probably has a shrine to her) and that he may be touched in the head.

Then I learn, he may have actually been involved in Chrisine’s campaign at one point and I’m thinking “Nuts! If this guy reps her then I can’t support her anymore”.

So we go at each other every now and then.

I want my $150 bucks back.
