O’Donnell Drops the Marx Bomb in Delaware Debate
Posted on Oct 14, 2010
Senate candidate and tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell has done her darnedest to lose the whole “witch” label as she makes her play to join Delaware’s ranks in Congress, but she was more than ready to brand opponent Chris Coons with her own scary term in their debate on Wednesday. —KA
The Caucus in The New York Times:
A feisty, aggressive Ms. O’Donnell called Mr. Coons a Marxist whose beliefs came from a socialist professor and said he would “rubber stamp” the policies of the Democrats in Washington. Mr. Coons raised questions about whether Ms. O’Donnell’s faith would drive her positions on social issues like abortion, prayer and evolution.
... “I am not now nor have I been anything but a clean-shaven capitalist,” Mr. Coons said.
