While most people are questioning her sanity and whether or not repeating “toil toil toil boil and bubble” is really an effective way to cast a spell, Republican senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell is questioning Church and State.
On Tuesday, current former witch O’Donnell challenged her Democratic rival to show where in the Constitution it requires separation of church and state.
Was it because she can’t read or was the print just too small? Keep reading to find out.
“Where in the Constitution is separation of church and state?” O’Donnell asked Democrat Chris Coons, at which time the audience gasped and then started laughing.
To be fair, Coons didn’t really answer, instead he said that O’Donnell’s question “reveals her fundamental misunderstanding of what our Constitution is… the First Amendment establishes a separation.”
In case you’re wondering, The First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Her question stirred up a whole mess of criticism from her opponents like law students and other well read folk, but also drew praise from fellow Tea Party supporters, who, like rabid dogs, were quick to bite back and defend the college dropout.
According to the Associate Press, O’Donnell upset Delaware’s Republican establishment last month with her victory in the primary, and former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove has predicted she will cost the party a Senate seat. Money has been pouring into her campaign from across the country — she raised nearly $4 million in just over a month through the end of September — but she has recently criticized the Republican establishment for not spending more to help.
No word on whether any covens are backing her in the race to dumb down America.
