Last night before bed, I checked into Memeorandum to see if there was anything worth blogging about it. I had to scroll down past link after link after link to the latest outrage Christine O’Donnell committed in the 1990s to get to the real eye-popping news of Gallup’s first “likely voter” poll of the 2010 elections.
This is not the first time I’ve noted the Christine O’Donnell obsession of the normally even-handed blog-aggregator.
Well, Jon Stewart has noticed this phenomenon as well, only among Democrats:
You know, I feel like again, this woman, Christine O’Donnell, she may be qualified. She may not. I’m not all that impressed with what’s in the Senate right now. But the last thing that I would suggest is that her witchcraft or masturbation stance is what we should be even thinking about or focusing on, and I think that’s an enormous mistake that the Democrats will make.
Democrats do seem to have a fascination with defining the right by some figure they find fascinating enough to demonize. Wonder how they’d feel if Republicans tried the same tack.
