Christine O’Donnell hit back at the Bearded Marxist, Chris Coons, and his allies who have smeared her on Hannity. (See below for a partial transcript.)
If I may just ask a few questions here – we keep hearing that O’Donnell isn’t qualified to be a senator. Why not? What qualifications do most Senators have? Years of work in the government? Prior experience as politicians? Look where that got us! Look at our debt. We’re losing our freedoms, not because senators lack experience, but because they have too much experience. What, are they afraid she won’t have the political acumen to wield power over the people? She won’t expand the federal government to the point it bursts? Or, heaven forbid, she’ll actually read bills before she votes on them?
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sick of most of the senators with experience. (Jim DeMint is an exception!)

The Hill– Tea Party-backed Christine O’Donnell (R) took aim at New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D) Tuesday night during an appearance on Fox News.
O’Donnell referenced an article Coons wrote in college in which he referred to himself as “a bearded Marxist.”
Prompted by host Sean Hannity about Coons’ years-old comment from Coons, she said, “if the media is going to attack me for statements I made in my 20s, that’s fair game. He made some very anti-American statements, apologizing for America and calling himself a bearded Marxist.”
Coons said earlier Tuesday on CNN that the reference was made in jest, calling it “a tongue-in-cheek reference to how Republicans on campus” viewed his transformation from a Young Republican to a Democrat.
O’Donnell referenced Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s comments from last week made in an interview with The Hill, where he called Coons, “my pet.”
“You have to wonder what kind of strange conversations went on that led to Harry Reid calling him his pet,” said O’Donnell, who again painted herself as the victim of unfair attacks from her Democratic opponents and the national media.
On her own previous statements about having “dabbled into witchcraft” when she was in high school, O’Donnell said it was just a case of “teenage rebellion.”
“Who doesn’t regret the 80s to some extent?” O’Donnell asked.
How true. I know there a few moments from the 80s I’d like to forget!
