Queenmaker Palin Triumphs with Christine O’Donnell (The Left spinning like a centrifuge)
The Progressive ^ | September 15, 2010 | Matthew Rothschild,

Posted on 09/15/2010 1:16:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Democrats shouldn’t crow too loudly about Christine O’Donnell’s Republican primary victory for the open Senate seat in Delaware.

Yeah, she’s nuts.

That’s all the Tea Party serves up is a bowl of mixed nuts. It’s gotten so bad that the Planters corporation is suing for product defamation.

O’Donnell is especially odd on the matter of sex. She’s on record saying condoms don’t prevent AIDS, that AIDS victims shouldn’t be called “victims,” and that masturbation is bad, bad, bad.

Yes, O’Donnell’s upset will make it more likely for the Democrats to win the Senate seat there, and thus hang on to majority control of that chamber. But don’t count her out, since hard-core conservatives are going to show up in huge numbers on November 2, no matter what.

Even if, as expected, she loses the campaign, O’Donnell represents the rise of the far right in America. She was correct when she said, in her victory speech, that she’s riding a wave.

It’s a wave with a dangerous undertow, and it could take our democracy away with it.

Her victory on Tuesday was another triumph for Sarah Palin, who’s proving to be quite the queenmaker.

Palin’s endorsements have paid off dramatically, and with every new one, it seems more and more possible that she could actually win the Republican nomination. Already, she has the highest favorability ratings among the leading candidates, and her unfavorables were comparable to Romney’s. It is Palin, more than any other Republican figure in the country, who senses the moment and is seizing it.

Some Democrats think that’s great, on the assumption that, as the Republican nominee, she’d have no chance of beating Obama.

But be careful what you wish for. She’d start with about 40 percent of the voters who can’t stand Obama. And she wouldn’t have far to go to make it a race. If the economy continues to stall, who knows?

Okay, who shook him awake? Let sleeping dogs lie, people. He actually gets it, even if through a veil of snark. Oh, and is Joe Miller a "Queen" Matthew? She's endorsed plenty of men, too.

O’Donnell is aising $2,500 a minute right now. See the link on Drudge. She started with a 50k goal. Now she’s 93% of the way to 500,000. There are 700,000 voters in Delaware in total. The RNSC got scared (of us basically) and gave her $47,000 earlier in the day as well. :P

Dem Dems is in troubles.

All this does is give Coons a CHANCE to win, when he had NO chance before. He is not guaranteed anything...not in this climate. People see that others feel the same as they do, and they are responding exponentially...

“she’s on record saying condoms don’t prevent AIDS,”

So if I put a condom on my winky then shoot heroin into my eyeball using a needle I found on the floor or a junkie crack house, I’m not at risk for AIDS?

cool beans!

..."take our democracy with it"?

Liberals like to insist that we are democracy, when in fact, we are a "Constitutional Republic". Probably because they have trampled on the Constitution so much, they forgot we have one!

By “Democracy” they mean voter fraud schemes, amnesty for illegals, public union payoffs for votes along with any other way they can steal elections to push their agenda through.

“She’s on record saying condoms don’t prevent AIDS”

Let's see if we can help the liberal out on this one (and anyone with a probabilities background is welcome to join in).

According to planed parent hood, a condom is 90% effective at preventing pregnancy.

A woman can only become pregnant approximately 6 days out of every month.

That means a condom only has to work 20% of the time, and during that time, it is only successful 90% of the time.

AIDS is transmissible 100% of the time. My statistics and probabilities haven't been used since college, but I put a condom at about 18% successful at preventing AIDS.

Hardly a ringing endorsement, but it hasn't stopped the government from spending millions to promote “safe” sex!

Per the CDC: Consistent and correct use of male latex condoms can reduce (though not eliminate) the risk of STD transmission. ... The most reliable ways to avoid transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), are to abstain from sexual activity or to be in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner. [emphasis added]

And this is from Obama's CDC.

“She’s on record saying condoms don’t prevent AIDS, that AIDS victims shouldn’t be called “victims,” and that masturbation is bad, bad, bad.”

What planet do these people live on? Condoms might retard the spread of AIDS, but they don’t prevent it. AIDS-infectees, with the exception of people like those who got it long ago from blood transfusions, are not “victims”, any more than people who get herpes are “Herpes victims”. As for masturbation, last time I checked, it was still considered a moral indiscretion by almost everyone, even if it’s a commonplace one. If there’s nothing wrong with it, we wouldn’t sneak off to the bathroom or wherever to do it :P

AIDS is transmissible 100% of the time.

Don't forget, the HIV virus is MUCH smaller than spermatazoa, and fewer of them have to get through to get the job done.

Finally, most people at risk of AIDS are either drug abusers or eengage in unnatural acts. The prophylactic is much more likely to break in such circumstances.

Show a company that is willing to accept liability for product malfunction and then you might have a case.

The “best of circumstances” is key to that statistic. Really, it means they don’t count the malfunctions that can happen if the product is not “deployed” just right, which is not uncommon.

This week, Rush described a courtroom strategy that is being applied to politics by the Dems.

If you are a lawyer, and the person that you wish to discredit is female, employment of the "Nuts and Sluts" strategy has some success with juries. It is a chavenistic technique to discredit the female opposition without actually having to address relevant issues related to credibility. First provide some irregularity in the female opponents history; it doesn't have to be related to the present. Then find a sexual irregularity, no matter how trivial. The jury will then draw their own conclusions.

Read what this guy wrote again. He even gets it in the right order. First a paragraph about nuts, then sex.

It's rather vapid when you know the motive.

“Don't forget, the HIV virus is MUCH smaller than spermatazoa, and fewer of them have to get through to get the job done.”

And as someone e-mailed me, people that have unprotected sex with and HIV positive person don't ALWAYS become infected - so maybe I need to increase the probability of condom protection for that (although I don't know how you'd factor such a possibility).

Bottom line to me is this: if I had a choice between reliving my youth and spending another year in Viet Nam, or having sex with a known HIV infected person for a year (with or without a condom) - I'd take Nam. I had more confidence in the guys I was with keeping me safe than a thin plastic doohickey.

I really don't understand how people feel so indestructible just because they use a condom.

Ok, then why do people who masturbate in public have to register for life, while people who take a dump in public only have to pay a fine?

This is a big one to the leftists and the pharma poison vendors.

“AIDS” is a much bigger hoax than global warming or ozone depletion. Dr Duesberg established that AIDS is not itself a transmissable disease, and pretending that it is is a multi-billion dollar per year hoax that empowers numerous scammers world wide.

I’m pretty sure having sex with your wife in public would also get you in serious trouble. In any case, since when has the law been the ultimate arbiter of what is morally right or wrong?

“I’m pretty sure having sex with your wife in public would also get you in serious trouble. In any case, since when has the law been the ultimate arbiter of what is morally right or wrong?”

The law isn’t the ultimate arbiter. There are 2 common schools of thought on how to judge morality. The first requires reference to a universal standard of morality, traditionally the Bible in Western civilization. By that standard, masturbation can be judged immoral simply by virtue of it being a symptom of lust. The other method is to appeal to a public consensus of the society.

Now, we could take a poll and see if the majority of people think masturbation is immoral, but I doubt that would be very telling, since it’s a subject people might not answer honestly and openly about. Or, we can just look at the law, which already is a sort of measure of the public consensus as to what behavior is considered unacceptable in a society.

By any applicable measure of morality I can think of (besides the Thelemic/Satanist “do whatever you feel like”), masturbation comes up short. If you have some other standard you’d like to appeal to, by all means make your case.

The general secular morality standard would be ‘do no harm’. By this standard, if an activity is dangerous to others or harms others, then it should be illegal. Masturbating in public is pretty threatening around others, but not in private. As to why taking a dump in public is treated as a less serious offence, that is probably a combination of the influence of traditional judeo-christian morality and the fact that, unlike masturbating in public, defecating in public is merely disgusting, rather than an indication that someone is a dangerous sexual pervert who is a hairs breadth away from progressing on to committing a serious sexual assault or rape...

“The general secular morality standard would be ‘do no harm’.”

I’d take issue with this reasoning. This is not the general secular morality standard, it’s nothing more than Alistair Crowley’s “Do What Thou Wilt” philosophy restated. Most people don’t agree that this is the only standard, because we don’t accept that things which cause harm to one’s self are morally acceptable.

I’m sure you are right for a lot of secularists, but at the same time that doesn’t mean masturbation does no harm to a person. Indulging in masturbation can result in some psychological and sexual issues that are not beneficial, especially if it’s done in concert with pornography.
