"Christine O'Donnell Thought Joe Biden Tapped Her Phone."
Christine O'Donnell, anti-masturbation activist and the GOP's nominee to represent Delaware in the Senate, is a woman whose radar is never down. Always on the lookout for any shenanigans, she knows that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance -- over everything. While some may call this psychotic, other more wise and less hyperbolic voices would call merely paranoiac. Six of one, half a dozen of the other, I always say.
And so it was that, in 2008 race, Christine decided that Joe Biden had tapped her phone. Because that's just being cautious. Always assume the other candidate is a complete criminal. It's in Sun Tzu's Art of War or Zap Brannigan's Big Book of War or something. Biden then went on to win that race, 65%-35% -- the largest margin of any election in Biden's career. And he scored this big win despite the fact that he was also Obama's running mate and not spending a lot of time on the Delaware race. Now we know why, the big cheater!
So look for this to become a big White House scandal -- right after Christine gets that little thing about campaign finance laws straightened out. (Talking Points Memo)
-It is on!-
The time has come. After night after night of teasing out the big announcement, Jon Stewart dropped the bomb:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Rally to Restore Sanity|
But wait, Stephen Colbert will not be outdone:
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|March to Keep Fear Alive|
So which is it going to be, Team Sanity or Team Fear? Personally, I'm leaning toward Fear, but I really want to see a sea of signs that say, "I disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler."
So I'm torn. (Comedy Central vs. Comedy Central)
