Need a good laugh? Take a little trip over to Delaware's Tea Party Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's website and check out her positions on fixing America's most pressing problems like jobs, the economy, taxes, spending, health care, energy and national security. It's chock full of all the creative, ground-breaking, thought-provoking political and policy insights you can cram into a whopping 265 words. That is of course if the thoughts it provokes, and the insights it offers, are that O'Donnell is woefully lacking in knowledge and substance.
Wanna fix the jobs problem, you say? Well, O'Donnell has an incredible plan: "Believes jobs are created when businesses are freed from endless taxes and bureaucratic red tape." That's it. All of it. Word for word. The entire plan in a nutshell. Can't you literally hear the stampede of people headed back to work now...
Wanna reign in spending? O'Donnell has the solution: "Believes unrestrained government spending is eroding our freedom, destroying our economy and ceding our sovereignty to foreign debt-holders like China." I think the deficit just dropped a trillion bucks as we speak...
Wanna make America more energy efficient? O'Donnell "Supports a market-based approach to energy solutions that will keep competition high and energy prices low." Wow! Why didn't Al Gore think of that?
Or how about taxes? O'Donnell "Will fight to remove the crushing tax burden faced by American families and businesses and dramatically simplify the tax code." Dang, if anyone can untangle this intricate and complicated tax code it's Christine O'Donnell! Didn't she major in Tax Law at Oxford?
Ya think Delawareans would be fortunate to have representing them in Washington such a brilliant thinker and policy innovator? Let's hope they make the right decision on November 2nd..
In the meantime, I know a Senate hopeful in Delaware named Chris Coons who could use a few bucks. Click here to donate.
