Rosie O’Donnell’s Choice Of Birth Control For Her Kids: MTV’s Teen Mom

Teen Mom, the controversial MTV series that advertisers aren't feeling from, still scores its share of criticism from folks who think it glamorizes teen pregnancy. (It doesn't. It makes teen pregnancy look awful. But these girls do get paid to be on camera.) Who's coming to the show's defense? Ms. Rosie O'Donnell, who thinks the series will keep her own teenage daughter from getting knocked up.

Angle, O’Donnell’s Campaign Lawyer Repped Harry Jackson’s Group In DC Gay Marriage Fight

Sangleroses If voters needed more proof that the Tea Party's leaders have ingrained themselves in Washington politics, they need look no further than Senatorial hopefuls Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell's lawyer, Cleta Mitchell.

A former Oklahoma state representative, Mitchell has previously worked for power players like the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, as well as high profile conservative Bishop Harry Jackson's group Stand4Marriage, which sued the District of Columbia for a public referendum on gay marriage

Mitchell remarked at the time, "The Home Rule Charter gives D.C. residents the right to the initiative and the referendum process and authorizes a citywide vote on this issue if petitioned to do so by the people."

As for working with Angle and O'Donnell, two anti-gay candidates who have attempted to play the "outsider" card, Mitchell told Talking Points Memo: "These candidates didn't have all of the infrastructure that a campaign normally has because they are outsider candidates, and they need all the things they should have had but couldn't afford."

Now that O'Donnell and Angle are rising stars, however, they have the money it takes to play side by side with the Republican party, which Angle insulted over the weekend, and their anti-equality comrades.

Oxford, Claremont … What Else Will The Lamestream Media Find To Be Untrue About Christine O’Donnell’s Credentials?

First Oxford, now Claremont Graduate University: Both schools that Christine O'Donnell did not attend, despite her own claims otherwise. At Oxford, O'Donnell merely attended a class at something called the Phoenix Institute, which rented space from the esteemed school And Claremont in California, the Delaware GOP nominee for governor says she held down a "2002 Abraham Lincoln Graduate Fellowship in Constitutional Government." She made that up.

Christine O’Donnell’s sister denies homophobia; Oh brother.

Mother Jones tips us off to this public Facebook wall posting from Christine O’Donnell’s lesbian sister:

Jennie O’Donnell to all my friends and family..thank you for your great wishes.. for the wisdom to see through the insane lies that were being tossed around, and still will be, i supose [sic]. i’m sure they will make up new ones; but thank you for your love, support prayers, good humor… and support of my sister,no matter what lies were made up about her…oh.. p.s. haave [sic] you heard the latest? she’s homophobic… gotta laugh

Jennie O’Donnell [Facebook]

Which besides being surprising, is a perfect example of why I personally don’t care for the word “homophobic”: Because it’s much too easy to see as an either/or. A role independent of actions. Like it, a personally defined terms, is some sort of condition that one can easily shake. “She’s not homophobic — she took a dose of penicillin.”

Here’s the thing: Christine O’Donnell, without any question or doubt, was involved in “ex-gay” work. Christine O’Donnell, without any question or doubt, compared homosexuality to pedophilia, adultery, eating disorders, and drugs. Christine O’Donnell, without any question or doubt, wrote this:

Adolph Hitler said that to engineer a society you must first engineer its language. Starting with the youth, he set in motion a design to erode the power of words, to steal the significance and beauty of a single word. We can see the unfolding of that plan in our society. For example, “gay” means joyful and gleeful. Yet, today, when we say that Ellen is gay, we’re certainly not talking about her emotional well-being.” [SOURCE]

Christine’s SALT organization, without any question or doubt, linked to anti-science groups like NARTH and to discredited researchers like Paul Cameron to justify the “ex-gay” stances. Christine O’Donnell, without any question or doubt, held a press conference where she attempted to link America’s first openly gay ambassador to the “pedophile rights movement.” Etc. etc.



So is she “homophobic,” as Jennie O’Donnell defines it? Frankly: Who the hell cares?! Not this site. Not most activists. What we do care about is the work and the views. Work and views that might soon join the United States Senate, guiding votes on matters like the Defense of Marriage Act, employment non-discrimination, immigration rights, and open service.

“Gotta laugh”? Sorry Jennie, but we’re not with ya on that one!

Video: Hannity and Rove jump into a catfight over teabagger O’Donnell’s win in Delaware

Enjoy a giant serving of delicious schadenfreude in this video as Sean Hannity gets a smackdown by Karl Rove over the success of anti-masturbator, anti-gay winner of the Delaware U.S. Senate GOP primary, teabagger Christine O’Donnell:

Hat tip to Digby, who said:


Oooh. Daddy Karl and Uncle Sean had quite the spat tonight. How long before they drum Rove out of the party? Sorry Karl, you and your friends birthed this hideous monster and now it’s turning on you. Did you think you would be immune?

Here’s the video from Rachel’s show, where they snagged O’Donnell’s anti-masturbation appearance for MTV:
