    Christine O’Donnell Mocks The Mockers

    Christine O’Donnell Mocks The Mockers

    Everyone is talking about the new Christine O’Donnell advertisement in which she declares “I’m not a witch… I’m you.”


    Good or bad?

    My vote is probably good, definitely not bad.

    O’Donnell has been so maligned because of comments she made in the 1990s, that a game changer is needed.  The piling on — assisted by some Republicans initially — was so intense and continues so regularly, that ignoring the character assassination was not possible.

    One way of confronting this type of belittling mockery is to mock back.

    And that is what O’Donnell is doing.  She is mocking the mockers.  It is the right strategy, although there is precious little time to undo the damage.

    Coons is giving O’Donnell a gift by bringing Al Franken in to campaign with him.  Nothing says “I’m the only serious candidate in the race” as much as campaigning next to the literal clown of the Senate.

    After a couple of days of mocking the mockers, O’Donnell needs to attack Chris Coons with all of the millions she has accumulated — not on the so-called Bearded Marxist stuff, but on Coons’ broken promises, tax hikes and the fiscal mess he has created in New Castle county.

    Coons = Harry Reid
    Coons = Obamacare
    Coons = Stimulus
    Coons = $14 trillion of debt
    Coons = Trillion dollar deficits
    Coons = Forcing your children and grandchildren to pay for your mistakes.

    Repeat the above every day and night until election day.

    Got it?

    I love the ad and am sending her a few bucks. I also agree in your strategy for her. This was a nice introductory and slightly defensive ad. From this point on it should be offense offense offense.

    Photogenic? Check.
    Likable? Check.
    Authentic? Check.
    Good hair? Check.
    Not Harry Reid's "pet" nor a "Bearded Marxist"? Check. Check.
    Should Coons win? Check please!

    O'Donnell had thirty seconds to say something relevant about the state of the nation's economy, the danger of doubling the number of self-described socialists in Congress, or something that would take the focus off of her, her personal history, and false rumors about her. The only reason to vote for O'Donnell is that she's not a big government leftist like Chris Coons. So why not focus on why he's not a viable alternative for all those independents who were just itching (or so we are told) to pull the lever for Mike Castle instead of him? Is Coons REALLY what they want?

    And the second "I'm you" was annoying and unnecessary. No, you're not me, Christine — I would have stopped at one "I'm you" before it made you want to say "All right! We get it!

    I'm beginning to think that political consultants are nothing but failed advertising executives who could never sell consumer products effectively.

    Another thing I really liked about that ad, and this is just my opinion – is that she comes across as a couple of posters said her – simple, common, not groomed for the political life. Which is why I like Dr. Daniel Benishek and Sharron Angle and Lt Col Alan West – they're NOT politicians – they're people. And as a bonus (sorry Professor!), they're not lawyers.


    100% with you on the second "I'm you."
    That one was unneeded and awkward. She
    is cute though. (Not that I judge candidates on looks, no sir!!)
