Sweet sassy molassey! People are still finding clips of GOP Delaware Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell saying strange things on the teevee? Apparently, Christine O'Donnell was, all this time, one of the most televised figures in politics. Additionally, her desire to stop the unmarried masses from making sweet, sweet love to one another was astoundingly ambitious.
It all went down on a 2003 episode of "Scarborough Country," which was "Morning Joe" before Mika and the Starbucks sponsorship, when the dude who hosted "The Grind" on MTV would just show up wearing a T-shirt and just start straight up opining at Joe Scarborough! It was a wild, more unrestrained time in American life, and Christine O'Donnell had a dream of throwing a wet towel on the whole thing:
NIES: I tell them to be careful. You have to wear a condom. You have to protect yourself when you're going to have sex, because they're having it anyway...There's nothing that you or me can do about it.
O'DONNELL: The sad reality is -- yes, there is something you can do about it. And the sad reality, to tell them slap on a condom is not --
NIES: You're going to stop the whole country from having sex?
O'DONNELL: Yeah. Yeah!
NIES: You're living on a prayer if you think that's going to happen.
O'DONNELL: That's not true. I'm a young woman in my thirties and I remain chaste.
So there you have it! If you've been having trouble getting laid, maybe Christine O'Donnell is the one keeping it from happening.
