Skip to comments.Did Joni Ernst Just Turn Herself into Christine O'Donnell?

...The risk of the Ernst ad is that it may cause people not to take her seriously. While Iowa is one of the top agricultural states in America, 64 percent of residents live in urban communities. The question that deserves to be asked is, how does this ad play with urban women? From the ones I talked to on Tuesday, it didn't set very well.
"It reminds me a little of the 'I'm not a witch,' ad," one woman told TheIowaRepublican.com. "I think you could tell that story in a speech, but I would never use the word castrate in a television or radio ad. Plus, she seems just a little too happy about castrating pigs," the 35 year-old added. Another said that the ad created an image in her head about a mad woman roaming around Washington D.C. castrating legislators.
Those are two tough critiques of the ad, but one thing is abundantly clear after pushing the fact that she is a mother, solider, and conservative for almost a year now, Ernst is now going to forever be linked to castration much in the same way Christine O'Donnell will forever be linked to her 2010 U.S. Senate ad that began with the words, "I'm not a witch." O'Donnell's "Witch" was also the first ad she run in the general election in 2010 in Delaware. The ad went viral. Some people loved it, others laughed, but the result was that people stopped taking her seriously...

Open note to Christine O’Donnell:
You have a lot of supporters out here.
I don’t know about all you folks, but when someone
has experience at castration, I take them seriously.
Both Joni and Christine would be fine Senators.
She’s just channeling her inner Jesse Jackson...
Maybe she will get the dyke vote and conservative vote.
I thought Christine Odonnel was cute!
Christine O’Donnell is a complete moron. That said, I would rather have Sen. Chris Coons than Sen. Mike Castle. RINOs poison our ranks, and they must be purged.
“I dont know about all you folks, but when someone
has experience at castration, I take them seriously.”
No problem in the GOP in both the House and Senate, there isn’t a single testicle attached to anyone there. She would have a better time “cutting” the RATs. They may be Marxists, but they are effective.
Who was she, Craig, your mother or sister?
341,000 youtube views, up from 110,000 or so yesterday.
I don’t think so.
Ernst should be judged on her accomplishments. The Dem loving media wants to paint her right out of the box in an effort to minimize her as a person.
Talk about a war on women.
Going to DC to castrate politicians there? And the problem with that image is ,what? They deserve a rope for looting the Treasury and allowing the reign of Obama to weaken us to the point of military and economic danger.
Let’s not fall into the trap being laid for any conservative candidates. We don’t have to come up to some media lunkhead’s idea of what is acceptable.
Christine O’Donnell would, on her worst day, be ten times better than that Obama loving putz Chris Coons that defeated her.
And I will never forgive Karl Rove for sinking O’Donnell for his GOP-E hand picked successor, the liberal Mike Castle.
Nothing wrong with COD in my opinion
Her victory helped stop the Dream Act. 2 million Dem voters immediately and 4 million more is much worse than one Senate race.
By my count, Millers primary coup may have helped gain around ten votes by terrifying GOP incumbents who might otherwise have been tempted by the prospect of a feel-good, bipartisan, MSM-approved pro-DREAM stand.
Some here are ready to attack conservatives even before the MSMdoes
The knee-capping begins...
You are right, FRiend.
And you don't see them in the arena, do you?
Do you think Joni Ernst is a lesbian?
Exactly the GOP e refuse to support conservatives and they love RINO
I would never have thought of the connection, this is silly, but it is the way the media works.
