Wow. It got worse.
What a terrible person.
Evidence that Christine O’Donnell (R-DE) Is Actually a Witch (from least to most convincing):
3. She admitted it: "I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven, but I did it. I was a witch… I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up."
2. While unsuccessfully running for U.S. Senate in 2010, she ran ad assuring voters that “I am not a witch.” A witch move if there ever was one.
1. The most damning evidence: the possibility that O’Donnell might run again is “keeping other GOP candidates from stepping forward as the campaign draws close.” She’s keeping people out of the race despite being the same Christine O’Donnell who said lost her last election by 17%. Witchcraft!

2010 called, wanted its Tea Party candidate back. (OH GOD SHE’S MAKING A COMEBACK)
In case you want another reason to hate Fox News, just look at what Erick Erickson tweeted after the passing of the Texas abortion bill.
Signal boost and let him know that this behavior is not welcome and not tolerated.
What a terrible person.
This is undoubtedly an amusing headline, but it actually touches on a serious issue in democracies: How can policymakers sell and implement necessarily policy when the general public is almost comedically misinformed about what policy is needed? The poll cited showed that Britons believe that 24% of jobless benefits are fraudulently claimed (the actual number is .7%); that violent crime is rising (it’s falling); that immigrants comprise 1/3 of the population (more like 13%); and that teen pregnancy is roughly 26 times higher than it actually is. “Politicians need to be better at talking about the real state of affairs of the country, rather than spinning the numbers,” said one of the pollsters involved. In addition, “the media has to try and genuinely illuminate issues, rather than use statistics to sensationalise.” So, in other words, the incentives structure of politics and the media needs to do a complete 180 from where they are now. Awesome, that should be a quick fix. source
New York Daily News: Anthony Weiner gets 2 legs up on NYC mayoral competitors with bright trousers
“Is it a blatant attempt to get the gay vote?” menswear designer Jeffrey Banks asked regarding Weiner wearing red pants last week to the Greenwich Village rally celebrating the U.S. Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling. “Is the casual look an attempt to make him seem more accessible?”
