    I am more concerned about her lies and where has the campaign money gone than about witchcraft.
    She also needs to come clean about her so called school records; her district "wins" against VP Biden (lies); her employers firing her and she turning around and suing them for millions.
    Her views about abortion, masturbation and sec without marriage sound ancient too.
    I would also like to know, because who wouldn't, how she manages to live on $5,600 a year. That IS magic.

    Regarding the Coons "Bearded Marxist" article. People should realize that the title was a bit tongue in cheek. Coons was actually a Young Republican for most of college. 26 years ago (when he was 21) he was on a tour of Africa and discovered that the unfettered free enterprise that he'd always championed can have a terribly negative effect on "we the people" if corporations (that are only driven by profits) are allowed to act unetically and amorally against the overall good of the country. That observation may seem pretty obvious to most people, but compared to his Young Republican brethern, observing it made him seem like, well, a bearded Marxist.

    This will be interesting. O'Donnell will be on the defensive over all the stupid comments she has made in the past, her lack of financial knowledge as she couldn't pay her own bills or mortgage! I don't think that even sarah pathetic could help her, but we will see! The problem is the morons on the right will vote for her regardless!

    You do know that Coons's "admission of being a Marxist" was a joke played off a comment his friends made? It was a humorous sentence in a college newspaper article, but I am willing to BET none of the Fox bots ever read it.

    "Barry" who?One thing is for sure, whoever he is ,he is blind and not very astute. These women he mentioned are all{ with the distinct exception of Hillary. Mrs. Clinton , to you} so far out in their thinking that with any more power than what they already have could sink this country over night.As a woman I DO NOT see the discriminization here that you are talking about. We have intellegent, well educated women in all factions of our government. Right on top is, our Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton., and doing a beautiful job, she is! Barry, you are way out of line.Why don't you talk about something you know about.There must be something

    coons's " marxist" coment was a joke in a college newspaper. She, on the other hand, had a real date on a "satanic altar with blood." You choose.

    If she's anything like her mentor Palin she'll try to look cute, act folksy, and avoid any direct answers to serious questions. If that doesn't work she'll just cast a spell on him!

    CNN nationally broadcasting a Senate debate in Delaware?

    Is there an agenda here?

    CNN also chairing the debate. That stacks the deck against O'Donnell automatically.

    This woman scares the daylights out of the political left.

    "She will lose the election who want a witch to be in the office"

    Hey, "Vote Republicans Out"

    Funny, I said the same thing when Hillary was running.
