On October 15th, 2010 I listened live as Mark Levin, Conservative talk-show host and author of the staunch and entertaining book "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto", interviewed Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell. Here is the interview in full, split into two parts (it's YouTube of course..."-
After Mark Levin's funny quips at both Joe Biden, saying that the current Vice-President held his Delaware seat for 417 years was a wonderfully witty way of starting out the interview, and also Wolf Blitzer, whom Levin spoofs by playing clips from his appearance on the TV game-show Jeopardy, which I watched on TV when it first aired and which was a total embarrassment to Blitzer who ended up with negative $4200.
In the middle of these quips, Levin alludes to the fact that she was actually debating three people on in that debate and not just her opponent Chris Coons. Watching the debate, I could really see this. This happens all too much in politics. The media is not good enough at picking unbiased debate moderators (it made me also think of Gwen Ifill's heavy-handed Liberal attack on Sarah Palin during the 2008 Vice-Presidential debate.) But O'Donnell picked up on that vileness early on and made sure to never falter even though she was surrounded by Democrats on all three sides!
Since that debate, the gap between her and her opponent in early polls is growing smaller and smaller. Is this a coincidence? From that debate, I think people saw that O'Donnell was really the people's candidate, versus stuffy Coons, who is almost a Biden clone once you think about it (and does Delaware really want 417 more years of Biden?) Just listen to her tone in both the debate and this interview. She sounds like a person that i'd love to have a nice cup of joe with and talk politics! I could never say that about Coons, or really any other Democrat in the world, except maybe my guilty-pleasure Democrat Arianna Huffington! People in Delaware are seeing now that O'Donnell is really the right candidate for them, and I have no doubt that she will win in Delaware!
