Christine O’Donnell has all the makings of an East Coast Sarah Palin. She’s a candidate running for the Senate in Delaware. More specifically, she’s a Tea Party member who is challenging Republican Mike Castle in the upcoming primary. For a while, she looked like a longshot, but all of a sudden, she’s picked up a bit of steam. Which has folks very worried because let’s just say that O’Donnell has some pretty extreme views. Years ago, O’Donnell made an appearance on the MTV series “Sex in the ’90s.” The point she wanted to make: masturbation is evil.
“The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So you can’t masturbate without lust. The reason that you don’t tell [people] that masturbation is the answer to AIDS and all these other problems that come with sex outside of marriage is because again it is not addressing the issue. You’re just gonna create somebody who is, I was gonna say, toying with his sexuality. Pardon the pun.”
Oh, we love the pun. but we’re not so into the idea. In fact, we are all in favor of self-love.
The chairman of the Delaware state GOP said that O’Donnell “couldn’t be elected dog catcher.” In other words, this election is about to turn nasty.
But I’m curious—would you vote for a candidate who is anti-masturbation?
