Dear crazies whackos female Republican politicians Christine O’Donnell,
I thought I wanted to write to all female Republican politicians, but it turns out, I just want to address you, Ms. O’Donnell.
Let me begin by saying I am concerned for you. Perhaps I am not qualified to judge your beliefs and platforms – seeing as how I’m a Canadian – but when you put yourself in the public light and want to lead people, your beliefs and platforms become public domain. I’m an outsider here, so maybe the windows I’m looking in through are a little dirty. I would like to apologize for perhaps not understanding all of the issues at hand, as I don’t always keep up to date with the latest political pundits, but I’ll do my best to express my concerns.
Let me continue by saying congratulations for being female and breaking into such a man’s domain. It’s difficult to be taken seriously in certain areas, and I suspect politics is one of the most difficult. You have to shout twice as loud to be heard half as well.
So, maybe that explains what’s going on with you.
Maybe I’m in the minority, but your viewpoints are…strange, to put it nicely. I don’t like to throw the word crazy around all willy-nilly, but it seems to me that you attract it. Crazy is being called home. Yeah, there sure are a lot of generally crazy male politicians out there as well, so perhaps it just goes with the territory. Passion could be seen as insanity. It could happen.
However, I’m just not so sure. You are quite outspoken about your feelings about a myriad of subjects. Abortion…homosexuality…climate change…masturbation…wait, what? When did masturbation become a topic even remotely related to politics? I guess that would be since you, Ms. O’Donnell, brought it to the political table. So here’s where I draw the line. When politics enter my bedroom.
I don’t tell you what you can do in your bedroom, and you stay out of mine. And by the sounds of your history, I don’t want you in mine. You see, I didn’t need religion to lead a relatively morally conscious life. I just had a little bit of self-respect. And to tell you the truth, if I did have a history of morally questionable acts, I sure wouldn’t feel the need to come up with some legislation to govern everyone else’s lives. I guess that maybe you feel as though you have a lot of repenting to do to make up for those early college years, and of course, your fledgling high school career in witchcraft.
Perhaps you should be thankful for Sarah Palin’s endorsement of your campaign. You know, considering everything with her daughter’s status as an unwed mother and all. Of course Miss Palin is now a pro-abstinence spokesperson too, so that must make things alright in your eyes. Nothing like being unwavering in your beliefs.
I suppose I’m not surprised about your other beliefs:
- Anti-abortion – yeah, no surprise there. Most pro-abstinence advocates are anti-abortion. You’d think that it would make more sense to be pro-education, especially since pro-choice does not equal pro-abortion…it just equals…uh…you know…pro-choice.
- Fiscal integrity – wow. This one was a bit of a shocker. You said in a press conference that “voting to spend money we don’t have has become the appealing option for too many politicians. The men and women of America know this is not sustainable.” It just sounds a little strange coming from someone who has had so many difficulties paying back their student loans, mortgage, back taxes and campaign debt. But whatever…I get it. I know what it’s like to be in debt.
- Anti-climate change legislation – you unfortunately have uprooted one of the only Republican Senatorial candidates with a pro-environment stance in your win over Mike Castle in Delaware. This is scary, because it appears as though anyone else who used to have a green bone in their body has decided they don’t need to fight for their environmental beliefs anymore, including John McCain. Here’s why I care about this…environmental legislation does not just affect Delaware. It doesn’t even just affect your country. It affects the entire world, and considering I live north of the border, it’s good when I can confidently say that I know American emissions are reduced as they tend to float right up through my neck of the woods. I don’t care if people believe what the climate change doomsayers are saying, this is a matter for the entire world to decide. We will all live with the consequences, and if you deny that the average temperatures of the world are climbing just because of a few e-mails that were leaked (and consequently cleared of misconduct), then you need to remove your head from your ass. I don’t want to live with the consequences of your decision, thank you very much.
- Homosexuality – you believe that homosexuals suffer from an “identity disorder“? Well, I suppose this falls in line with your thoughts that evolution is just a theory after all, and you simply must be correct since “god” did speak to you…
I’m sorry, I just can’t hold it in anymore. Ms. O’Donnell, you are batshit crazy. There, I said it. And I really don’t think I’m the only one that feels this way. I believe you are single-handedly leading the charge back into the dark ages. I won’t be surprised when I hear that there have been some witches burned at the stake in Delaware.
