Babe’s doomed.

The witchcraft statement makes her a object of derision.

Once people mock a candidate, they’re doomed.

Aristotle wrote an entire essay about this.

Do we really need to identify the RINO’s in congress again? We can only hope they will soon be gone to make room for people who want to represent the people.

very cute. In fact, she’s better looking now than she was 15 years ago when she went on Bill Maher.

That state has got to have at least one person that would stand a better chance. She is a certain loss to the republicans. End of story.

I agree, but her showing interest brings to light that the incumbent is from the party in control that stole her information. I don’t think she will run but the publicity helps other potential candidates...

The MSM did such a hatchet job on her last time around that I’m afraid at this point she’s damaged goods.

Never get into an argument with a fool. After 5 mins, nobody can tell you apart.

Kudos for her though for trying.

“The MSM did such a hatchet job on her last time around that I’m afraid at this point she’s damaged goods”

I’m not so sure about that. It was the REPUBLICANS that did her in. Karl Rove etc. I contributed to her campaign and she raised a million dollars in like two days. They didn’t have squat on her. She just didn’t have the money or support of the party in time to respond to the lies.

Go Christine

I hope O’Donnell does not become popular with some conservatives just because they hate Karl Rove.

I love Sarah...don’t get me wrong.

And I hope you’re right.

But do you think she would/could run in Alaska for the senate seat and win? They would be brutal on her.

I couldn’t believe what fools the state Republican Party made of themselves last time.
I hope they have their act together and behave as adults.

Christine could be a good candidate if she’s greatly improved her political skills. If not, the Party will have no one but themelves to blame if they don’t put forward a better candidate.

Instead of jumping back into a race for Senator, O’Donnell should start at a lower level, perhaps in the state legislation... prove her bona fides, and work her way up.

Would that be the politically motivated audit? She was on TV recently talking about how the IRS had been used to trip her up.

I hope she does. It could be the bellwether race of 2014. Can a second chance candidate defeat the combined forces of the MSM that turned her into an object of ridicule, the Rovian Rinos that targeted her for personal destruction, AND the hoodlums in the IRS who committed felonies to feed private taxpayer information to the DNC?

If she pulled it off, it could shore up the courage of other past and future potential candidates who don’t know if it’s possible. I say, Go Christine!

Don’t forget, O’Donnell is a Mitt-bot.

She was one of the first people in the state to publicly endorse Romney.

...just sayin....

The Senate is an utterly corrupt institution in desperate need of honest blood. That means it needs people who can win and she is a proven loser. I’d vote for her myself but this country needs good Senators so badly we cannot risk any election to the RAT forces.

Essentially from 1985 when he supplanted Pete du Pont as the premier Republican officeholder as Governor until his defeat in 2010 by O’Donnell. Sen. Bill Roth was the last “great” Republican in the state.

I studied the ward maps in the nearby city this afternoon and suddenly I have the bug again and a few of us want to get back into politics in time for the fall city elections.

Any suggestions on how to kill the urge?
take up golf?
see a shrink?
stay away from these folks who are a bad influence on me?

anyone else have any success on going straight?

I totally disagree on Palin.

She was in the lead at the beginning of the 2012 race.

She took herself out.

She has been untouched.
