|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Tea Party Primaries - Beyond the Palin|
This is a bit vulgar, but there is an awkward old clip in which the Tea Party’s Christine O’Donnell talks about lust, masturbation and God. Skip to 2:22. That was from last night’s “The Daily Show.”
The story on O’Donnell today is that though she has opposed homosexuality she may have a gay sister. Mother Jones added some meat to the story, finding a sister of O’Donnell who is a gay rights advocate in my hometown and says on Facebook that she lives in West Hollywood with her girlfriend.
Unlike when a politician has built a career on traditional family values and is discovered to be, like so many politicians, an adulterer or, at the least, not who they claim to be, I just don’t see why it matters if a politician has a relative who lives a life that the politician disagrees with. Should it offend their political base?
