NOW I’m pissed (okay, this isn’t really new, but I’m extra pissed right now).
Gawker has just flung this despicable steaming pile of shit at Christine O’Donnell – an anonymous, paid coward saying he had a one-night stand with her.
Three years ago this week, an intoxicated Christine O’Donnell showed up at the apartment of a 25-year-old Philadelphian and ended up spending the night in his bed. Here’s his story—and photos—of his escapade with the would-be Delaware senator.
I CALL BULLSHIT.
Okay, so Christine O’Donnell is not God’s gift to the GOP. But this is absolutely the worst load of bullshit I have ever seen thrown at someone in a political campaign. Absolutely VILE, and reeking of bottom-feeding desperation, which is even more vile considering Christine O’Donnell is almost certainly going to lose anyway!
Worse, the accuser is anonymous (and misidentified in the comments, if you follow the links), and was paid for the story. Furthermore, these “photos” never show him at all and don’t do anything whatsoever to corroborate his lie; they’re totally irrelevant. He could have gotten pics of her sitting in church and said he picked her up at church for a one-night stand, and it would have the exact same relevance – as in, ZERO. To nobody’s surprise (nobody with a brain, that is), there are no photos of any “escapade” at all.
And you know what? I’m about sick and fucking tired of stupid libs saying COD is anti-masturbation and campaigning on a pro-celibacy platform, ffs! She has said repeatedly that when she was younger that WAS true, but that was years ago when she “was a new Christian.”
I hate having to defend her against trash, but I am sick and fucking tired of STUPID LIBS lying or just being fucking stupid, and this disgusting Gawker shit is indefensible and totally out of line. If this kind of bullshit becomes the new normal and is considered acceptable, America as we know it is dead; we will have nobody worth nominating running for office ever again.
I fucking despise Gawker even more than the Daily Kos, it’s the sleaziest left-wing hipster starfucking sleazy cesspool, ever. It makes traditional tabloid journalism (Enquirer, Star, etc.) look like the fucking Wall Street Journal. FUCK GAWKER and their filthy bullshit.
I hope she sues those fucking pigs and has everyone from Remy Stern on down selling pencils on park benches for their next meals for the next few years.
UPDATE: Even the consistently inconsistent NOW has issued a statement condemning this filth:
Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled “I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O’Donnell” that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker’s decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O’Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into the public sphere.
It should be noted that they couldn’t defend her without shilling for Chris Coons, of course, but it’s better than nothing, I guess. Still, it would be nice to just once see them issue an unqualified condemnation of such trash; you would think this would be the perfect opportunity for them to do so, especially as she is probably not going to win anyway. *sigh*
**LAST update: I posted the stuff above when I was so pissed I couldn’t really write, just spit. This says what needs to be said much more coherently; she nails it, as far as I’m concerned. Additional righteousness in the comments there, too. (Yes, at a lefty feminist blog.) I’m pleased to see that Gawker’s abhorrent hit has been met with near-universal condemnation from the right AND the left.
Also, Viv’s comment “on a funny note” here wins.
