Christine O'Donnell

Christine O'Donnell should not be confused with Chris O'Donnell.

Christine O'Donnell, Senatorial candidate from Delaware, been given a lot of attention and a lot of grief for her previous interest in witchcraft and masturbation avoidance. Witchcraft and masturbation avoidance are ridiculous things for people to be upset about. A person who chooses to be a non-masturbating Wiccan has make perfectly reasonable decisions. A person like O'Donnell, who as simply explored these avenues, has also made perfectly reasonable decisions, at least in the areas of religion and sexuality.

What is unfortunate and alarming about O'Donnell is her Tea Party affiliation, her media avoidance, and her shocking lack of constitutional knowledge. However, many candidates for public office across the country have one, both, or all of these unfortunate traits, without being slandered on a daily basis. The way she has been treated this campaign season, I can see how she would think that freedom of religion is not a part of the U. S. Constitution.

I find her inexperience and enthusiasm charming. I would rather see her in the House than in the Senate, but I think she has the potential to do a fine job in either chamber. If she fails, she won't fail for lack of trying.
