You Won't Will Have Christine O'Donnell To Kick Around Anymore

Reality show?

Well, she actually says she'd "not necessarily be interested" in a reality show, unless it was a "watchdog" type program (that is, not a reality show at all), but she's also keeping options open.

Incidentally, since I just got burned by buying into MSNBC's and Scheck's spin, I'd like to point out that I did read this article beyond the headline. The headline claimed "O'Donnell Considers Reality Show," but in fact her answer indicates she's not considering that.

It always bothered me about Christine O'Donnell that she had, to my way of thinking, too big an appetite to be on TV. I view her various silly Senate bids through this prism: Ways to keep on television. To grab the spotlight.

I always got a strong "flake" vibe, not to mention a strong "dumb as a bag of hammers" vibe to boot.

I always viewed her as I viewed those failed comics and writers for Radar who infest every episode of Hey I Remember the 80s: People who were on television not due to any accomplishment or talent, but due to a confluence of two things: 1) 500 cable channels' insatiable hunger to videotape any human being willing to work for scale and then edit together in such a way that they can call it "content," and 2) quite a few people who desperately want to be involved in such ventures, just to say "Hey, I'm on TV."

I grant you Mike Castle was a RINO, of course. If that means you can't support him, even in Delaware, where only a RINO has a chance of winning, fine. I understand then you had no good choices and went with the one you thought at least had some upside to it. (Whatever that was.)

I'm just glad she's in the past.

But I sort of don't think she is. Not completely. Her whole adult life has been focused on getting into the limelight. I do not see this impulse abating at any time in the future.
