Poor Christine O’Donnell, just like the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz, she’s slo-mo melting before our very eyes. Well, maybe not so slo-mo. Recently, she managed to attract only 5 (give or take… okay, take) people to her book signing. Then she butt-tweeted, although the resulting gibberish made a lot more sense than her usual tweets.
Now the tea party is turning on her. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that she is no longer welcome at a weekend event in Iowa that she was supposed to attend with her 2010 BFF, Sarah Palin. The Former-Half Gov won’t have to share the spotlight, because they dropped Christine like a hot corn dog.
First the head tea bagger said there was an open slot, but before Christine could say, “I’m you,” he said, oops, no there wasn’t.
But that wasn’t exactly what he meant:
Tea Party of America’s cofounder, Charlie Gruschow, said the group withdrew Ms. O’Donnell’s after receiving numerous “emails from a lot of tea party folks that were very disappointed that she would be speaking.”
“We decided not to have her speak,” Mr. Gruschow said. “We felt it was in the best interest of the movement.”
At least it saved her the trouble of walking out on them.
