    Good God barry, crazy much? Being a "Marxist" is a long way from being a Socialist or even a Communist. On the other hand, worshiping the Devil on a bloody altar is disgusting to decent folks everywhere. I guess you have to choose between coons ans witches here . . .

    Dabbling in witchcraft has nothing to do with politics, being a self proclaimed "Bearded Marxist" has everything to do with politics.

    So O'donnell said something about witches, so what? You Christains believe in a god that doesn't exist & are all delusinal, you are no better than she is.

    This nation of ours was not founded on christain principles. (John Adams)

    Is that the best you liberals have. Your going to pull a video of Odonell and insult her for something she dabbled in in High School. Are you all people or are you aliens from a different planet? Then your guy Coons which is a creepy name in and of itself, says in his own words he is a bearded marxist. Then you liberals claim that he is not. I don't think you all know yourselves what you believe. Then you say the people with morals, the tea party is nutty. I just wish you all would make sense for once in your lives. Please for the love of America, stop pretending we are all ignorant. We know what we believe. Small government, low taxes, freedom. We don't want your big brother, tell everyone how to live and how much they can make communist, marxist society. If you want that, move to Cuba, Russia, China or any other of your big brother nations.

  11. Websites

    Check out both of their websites. Click on the issues. Look at how much thought Coons has put into the issues. O'Donnell has one line responses.

    Democrats need to remember that O' Donnell is still a threat and should not be taken lightly because there are a lot of people who will cast there vote for her regardless of her record or things she has said or done. They'll ignore all her negatives and will come up with any excuse to justify their vote for her. They will resort to namecalling and will call the name of any Democrat who is fighting similiar allegations. For them to wrongs will make a right.

    Coons was 21 when he wrote that absurd statement. Kinda like ODonnell was a teenager.

    IDIOTS

    Will it be broadcast on the Comedy Channel?

    What fun it will be to watch the over-fed, pathetic O'Donnell try to pass herself off as knowledgeable and informed.

    P.S. Hey "barry": where in the Constitution is one prohibited from being a Marxist? Article and section, please.

    Coons is a marxist!Coons is a marxist!Coons is a marxist!
    You guys know nothing except what FOX tells you.
    Say it as many time as you want.
    It's not true.
    It never was true.
    It was Stalin who had the "big lie" theory. Repeat the "big lie" until folks think it's true.
    Seems like YOU GUYS are the marxists!

    Let me fix this for you: Coons will speak about the issues in intelligent fashion, and O'Donnell will babble on and on about things that don't matter (masturbation, her 'values', etc.). You're welcome.

    Memo to Sarah:

    She's younger than you. Prettier than you. A better public speaker than you. AND, remarkably, she's even dumber, more extreme and nuttier than you.

    Which, of course, makes her qualified to be the next GOP Presidential candidate.

    She will "Palin" the debate, ignore the question and just keep repeating her campaign talking points. This is not an attack on women, it's an attack on a very stupid person.

  22. Jimy Honest

    Why don't we ask Ms. O'Donnell for a copy of her resume which we will give to the FBI to check. What makes her qualified as a Senate candidate? Does she have a college degree ? what did she study and what has she accomplished since graduation. Every professional in the private sector has to proof his/her qualification for a job and so why are we letting politicians getting away without doing the same?

  23. who cares

    MOst of you nitwits that keep spewing "marxist" and "socialist" dont even know what ot means. Fox "news", Limpbaugh, etc. spew it so you repeat it. Real smart.

    Just shut up and watch your Walker Texas Ranger reruns and let the adults run the country.

    I would love to see one person who's throwing around the "Marxist" label actually define what Marxism is. No cheating and looking on Wikipedia. Go.

    O'Donnell actually thinks that the official title of people Obama appoints to head certain things is that of Czar. The media calls them Czars that is not their official title. She then reads a part of the constitution that states no government can give a title of nobility.

    Is she for real? Seriously. She thinks human brains have been implanted in mice.

    She is against women in the military.
    She has never held a real job.
    She had an IRS tax lien for 5 years.
    She had to be sued by her college to pay money she owed them.
    Her house went to foreclosure and was going to a sheriff sale until her boyfriend bought the house from her.
    She is being accused by more than former campaign staffer of misuse of funds.

    I think the voters of Delaware will not vote her in. Just being the anti establishment candidate doesn't mean your qualified.
