We’ve been trying to ignore a certain Senate candidate, but her latest display is so shocking (as the audience gasps during this debate confirm), it simply must be witnessed.

Christine O’Donnell has managed to transform herself from a Christian conservative to a tea party candidate. To that end she has adopted the Constitution as sacred talisman. The only problem is she doesn’t seem to know anything about it.

Not only does O’Donnell not know that the Constitution mandates the separation of church and state, she refuses to believe her opponent after he explains that the provision can be found in the First Amendment.

For the record:

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.
