Christine O'Donnell at "Values" Summit: White Conservatives Have Always Ruled America
Thanks to intrepid twitterers like Sarah Posner and our own Addie Stan, I'm getting a good picture of the utter depravity on display at the "values voters" summit without having to actually listen to it on C-Span. Here are some bits from newly-minted Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's Palin-esque speech. "They don't get it; We're not trying to take back our country. We ARE our country. We have always been in charge." "There are more of us than there are of them." She doesn't say, of course, who "us" and "them" are, exactly, but I don't see any other way to read that. Also, this, with its religious overtones: "We're in a season of constitutional repentance." I'll say it again: the "Constitution" is a branding tool for these types. They never specify what it means to "return to the principles of the Constitution." And in my personal experience, nobody knows less about the Constitution than your typical tea-bagger. Speaking of which, 6 out of 10 Americans can name the Three Stooges, but only 4 out of 10 can name the three branches of government.
