I love you, Christine O’Donnell

Catch the gaffe at the beginning, but stick around for the end of the video. This was not a joke; she genuinely didn’t get it.

To be completely serious a moment, I’m torn about the pile-on directed at COD as anyone; it’s too easy and it doesn’t illuminate any of the pressing issues of the moment. Unless you’re worried she’ll wind up working for Fox News, she isn’t a threat to anything, and she strikes me as a reasonably nice person, considering.

But this is also her third run for the Senate, and this demonstrates a level of ignorance that is at once tragic and hysterically funny at the same time. For someone who claims that the constitution is the pillar of their decision-making process to commit this error is unacceptable, and the likely outcome being that it will cost her no support is chilling.
