On Sunday, I appeared on the D.C. news show This Week with Christiane Amanpour. By the time I had left the show and eaten breakfast at a nearby restaurant, my appearance was already creating an uproar on the Internet.

What had I said that had been so blasphemous? Just my statement on the Republican senatorial candidate for Delaware: "My problem is that, no matter what, Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," I said. "She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business... [the message] that sends to my generation is: One day you can just wake and run for Senate, no matter how [much of] a lack of experience you have. And it scares me for a lot of reasons."
Shocking. A Republican who can see that the Emperor has no clothes.

She seems to be doing this a lot. Good for her. Hopefully, good for us.

She's, like, a progressive Republican. She doesn't like any true conservative candidates. And she's also, like, a little too Valley Girl for me.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "true conservative candidates". Everyone I've heard her criticize is over-the-top, drank the Kool-Aid twice insane. You got any examples of "true conservatives" she's gone after?

I think the point she makes in the last paragraph is the key to her stance in my opinion.

It is not the Tea Party as a movement that I have a problem with—people in this country are frustrated and angry—but it is hard for me to take her candidacy seriously and I think it reflects badly on the movement. We are 15 days away from the general election, and as a Republican I hope that we take over control of the House and Senate, but it is hard for me to see Republicans broadening our appeal with a candidate like Christine O’Donnell.
O'Donnell just is the wrong candidate. I did find it interesting how the biggest problem she has with O'Donnell is her thought of the Chinese plot to take over America.

"a little too Valley Girl" . Have no idea how you got that comparison. When I hear Valley Girl I think of someone who is little lite upstairs and says corny things kind of like O'Donnell.
