Honestly I don't really think so, I find her general opinions to be far too extremist for my personal tastes. The woman has managed to take advantage of this whole Sarah Palin hoopla and has emerged from the shroud of obscurity with a surprising gait. However, I will not begrudge the woman some financial woes and certainly I don't have any issue with her dabbling in "witchcraft" as a kid.
Lets start with her financial woes. It is alleged that she had some issues with paying the bills when it came to school. In fact, well maybe not fact I'm not sure, but apparently they even withheld her degree until she was able to pay off the debt she owed them.
Now if you've gone to college and your mommy and daddy didn't pay for it, you'll already know that this is par for the course. My question to you the audience is do we judge a persons ability to lead based on a relatively short time in her life when we're all having money troubles and we're all trying to adjust to a new phase of our lives? I should hope not, otherwise we might need to go back and reevaluate our own ability to lead our families.
Ok...so lets talk about "witchcraft" for a second.
Generally speaking I grew up with a Catholic background and as anyone will tell you, as a catholic youth if you don't start doing drugs you probably have messed with a Ouija board. Is this technically witchcraft? Yep. Do any of us really take this stupid, childish, bullshit seriously? Of course not...unless you're fucking ripened retard and think you're some kind of greater being, but that is a whole other issue.
If we didn't take the use of a simple Ouija board seriously as teenagers when we were all doing it, than why should we now?
Even if this woman was a full fledged Wiccen would it affect her ability to lead? Probably not (granted I don't know a hell of a lot about Wicca as a belief system).
Anyway what I'm trying to say is...FUCK YOU mass media. People of both sides of the fence are slinging mud at this woman and it's simply ridiculous. If you're going to call her out on something why not her stance on masturbation?
Just as an aside here...how can you remain abstinent and NOT masturbate? Seriously? People got needs.
Or perhaps the allegation that she's falsified where she went to college in the past? Shouldn't this be a much more worrisome issue? Certainly more worrisome then a poor college student who can't pay their bills.
Lets not cave into the media on this one people. If we're going to object to Ms. O'Donnell, lets do it on a valid basis and not some allegations that are, whether they're true or not, bullshit to the core. Lets nudge the process in the right direction. Judge with your brain and not with your...ya know I don't know what else you could logically judge with, but seriously lets think about this before we start flaming.
