Even Christine O’Donnell Won’t Say that Sarah Palin is qualified to Be President

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell came out of hiding long enough to do an interview on CNN’s The Situation Room, and things got interesting when O’Donnell was asked whether she thought Sarah Palin was qualified to be president, and answered, “Is she running for president?… Well, again, a hypothetical. I don’t know if she…”

Christine O’Donnell Casts a Spell and Morphs into Nixon

CNN managed to track down Christine O’Donnell for a minute to ask her about CREW’s heavily documented allegations that she is a crook.

If you are looking for a reason why CNN was so eager to push Larry King out of his long running talk show and into cable news retirement, look no further than the July ratings where MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow defeated Larry King for the sixth straight month and for the seventeenth time in twenty four months, and her audience continues to grow.

Democrats are ultimately responsible for solving the problem of the gridlock. But Democrats can’t force Republicans to work together to solve the country’s problems, and frankly, this meme only reinforces the illogical idea the Democrats have power over Republicans.
