Pop quiz

UPDATE 10/21: Oh, we’re havin’ some fun now. (My idea; DivaGeek’s execution.)

* * *

One question:

Which of the two subjects above knows more about the Constitution?

A) The subject on the left.

B) The subject on the right.

C) Neither knows a damn thing about it.

D) Neither knows a damn thing about it and there’s a better-than-even chance that both of them pee on it.

As I reTweeted earlier, the problem here isn’t that Christine O’Donnell doesn’t know a damn thing about the First Amendment, although that is, indeed, a problem, at least in Delaware and at least for the moment.

No, the problem is that the entire freaking right wing, including more of the Tea Party than its backers want to admit, believes the same damn thing. O’Donnell is just a random example drawn from a pool tens of millions of Americans deep. These people hate America. They want this country to be a Christianist theocracy. And some of them are in positions of real power, influence and responsibility. I like to find humor in things, but I don’t find that especially funny.

  1. “No, the problem is that the entire freaking right wing, including more of the Tea Party than its backers want to admit, believes the same damn thing.”

    I am me and I vote for reasons or candidtes that no one can can or should generalize about.

    Christine O’Donnell is not on my ballot. Please don’t take umbrage but a lot of INTELLIGENT voters have , not because of ANGER, but because they don’t like the direction our government is taking are using their ballots to be heroes
    is the most benign yet powerful sense of the word and saying halt..enough !

  2. Sorry, but I find it difficult to take that claim seriously when the polling shows such a deep and wide overlap between the Tea Party and the GOP’s Christianist base. Of course there are individual exceptions, but the trend is clear.

    Moreover, for everyone who voted for Obama because they thought he was the deal, there were at least two people who voted for him, despite fairly serious misgivings, because it was him or McCain and they knew McCain would maike a bad situation worse. Obama has made some things better and some worse, and unfortunately, that’s about the best we can hope for these days.
