Former Republican Tea Party (GOTO) Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell went on CNN to explain her recent decision to endorse Mitt Romney. The funny bit, as though there are never funny bits when she speaks, came when she gave Mittens a backhanded compliment shining a very bright light on one of the biggest issues conservatives have Mittens – he’s a flip-flopper.
“That’s one of the things that I like about him — because he’s been consistent since he changed his mind,” O’Donnell said in response to a question about continued criticism of Romney’s supposed flip-flopping. “I think that he’s humble enough to say ‘I don’t always have the right answers.’ And he’s open to other viewpoints and if it doesn’t betray his core convictions he’ll make the necessary changes.”
The former teen-aged witch attempted to make clear that her endorsement was personal and not on behalf of the Tea Party or any other political group, but said that she hoped her support for Romney might encourage Tea Party activists to give him a “second look.”
Wow, how can you top an endorsement like this one? An endorsement from a certified crazy woman who recently suffered (2010) one of the worse defeats in a United States senatorial race in our country’s history; only way to seemingly top this would be to garner Sarah Palin’s blessing as well, and eventually Michele Bachmann’s. Yep, Mittens is living in tall political cotton now.
