In previous posts, we’ve discussed Christine O’Donnell’s aversion to the “liberal media” who, she claims, won’t ask her “fair questions”. Asking her anything would be a pretty neat trick, considering she won’t let the “liberal media” within a mile of her.
But as Greg Sargent points out, even when asked, she has no opinions. Way to convince voters of your positions on the issues, Christine:
* Christine O’Donnell, on whether global warming is manmade:
“I don’t have an opinion on that.”
* O’Donnell, in the above link, on whether to teach creationism in schools:
“It doesn’t have anything to do with what I will do in Congress….My opinion on that is irrelevant.”
* O’Donnell, on whether Sarah Palin is qualified to be president:
“Is she running for president? Again, hypothetical.”
She won’t say whether Palin is qualified for the presidency? Now that’s big news!
She’s right about one thing: Her opinion is irrelevant.
Yes, O’Donnell actually makes news with an absence of answers.
Conservatives have done it. They’ve figured out how to create headlines without uttering a word: News by omission.
