Her stupidity makes her dangerous, but not for the reasons you might think

Appearing on MTV in 1996, O'Donnell condemns masturbation. The woman on her left wishes she hadn't fought for a seat on camera.

I’ll step off Christine O’Donnell with this post, promise, because it’s distracting and ultimately rather pointless, and a scenario we all got used to back under George W. Bush.

There is a difference, though.

No matter what your opinion of the man himself is, it must be acknowledged that he at least had the sense to be born to a smart father who preceded him in the White House. Even those of us who could not for a moment take the little twerp seriously knew enough to take him seriously.

The danger with O’Donnell is that she is such a joke that we’re standing around over here giggling, waiting for the next kee-razy thing she has to say, while smart people who know how to pull the puppet strings ride her all the way to the Senate. The same thing essentially happened with Bush Jr., but at least there was some idea of who would be in charge of what when he swaggered into his daddy’s chair.

The danger with O’Donnell is that we’re listening to her idiocy at all, that we’re repeating earlier mistakes, only worse. She doesn’t matter a bit, and there’s no reason she ever should.
