S**t The Tea Party Says

This is going to be a new segment here at The Dark Stuff. Due to the unhinged and factually devoid nature of the tea party, I am taking it upon myself to post some of the whackier things said in the name of the new leaders of the Republican Party. This will be sort of like a Daily Affirmation, only it "affirms" that if you agree with the sentiment, you're nuts.

"They are -- they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they're already into this experiment." - Republican candidate for Senate in Delaware, Christine O'Donnell in a 2007 appearance on The O'Reilly Factor

O'Donnell was refering to human brain CELLS. If that is the best argument the left has against her, you guys reallly have hit bottom, sir.

Well, it sounds like she has as firm a grasp on science as the average conservative...none. The discussion was about stem cells (which O'Donnell opposes using in all cases) and then O'Donnell ventured into some nonsense about human cloning, where she brought up her human/mouse crossbreeding fantasy.

It's funny, liberals are expected to be responsible for the words and views of anyone they might ever have been in the same room with, yet conservatives aren't even responsible for their own words. It really is a shocking double standard.

O'Donnell is a certified nutcase, and luckily she has been all over the media for the last 15 years, so there is plenty of material. I look forward to your defense of all the idiotic things she says. This is just the beginning.

I admittedly do not know much about O'Donnell, but in your one example there, it sounds to me like a big ado about nothing.

Also, I guarantee you that as a typical conservative I can best a typical liberal in any scientific field too! :)

You do know some science, Paine, but you vote with the anti-science know-nothings like Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell.
