Christine O’Donnell: a Politician Who Doesn’t Know Shit About the Constitution

Ahh, Christine O’Donnell. The next Sarah Palin. I have mixed feelings about her: namely that I kinda want to have sex with her, but I also kinda want to punch her in the face. I believe the term is called “hate-fuck”? If any of you more astute readers could enlighten me, that’d be great.

Anyway, fast forward to about the 2:37 mark to hear her actually ask, in total seriousness, where in the Constitution it says that church should be kept separate from state.

This can only mean one of three things.

  1. She really doesn’t know that the First Amendment declares that Congress (a governing body into which she is attempting to be elected) “shall pass no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
  2. She knows it’s there, but doesn’t understand “separation of church and state” as a shorthand way of expressing this sentiment.
  3. She’s merely quibbling about semantics (since those words literally don’t appear in the Constitution) because she doesn’t think the government should be separate from religion.

Neither of these scenarios make her not an idiot.

I’d totally still do her though.
