What Losing Looks Like
Former radical right wing Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is on a book tour promoting a memoir. Since her career began as an abstinence crusader, you might think that she would be keen to talk about the cultural conservatives’ key issues, including same sex marriage and DADT repeal. But when Piers Morgan asked about them on CNN, she twisted and turned to avoid them, and then walked off the set.
This is what losing looks like. When politicians recognize that continued adherence to their old position is so toxic that they’d rather look like a buffoon than answer but they can’t alienate their base by changing sides, this is how they act. My major question is, when AFA and Christine O’Donnell recognize that the outcome of this battle is no longer in doubt, why doesn’t Obama?
