Yahoo Watch: Christine O'Donnell

Okay, this is a little unfair. Ms. O'Donnell is something of a walking, non-stop, yahoo watch unto herself. But, even I was flabbergasted when, during a debate, she asked: "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" Correct Answer: The First Amendment.

It is more than a little ironic that the Tea Party that launched Ms. O'Donnell into the spotlight, and which makes a great deal over their commitment to the Constitution, should have one of their darlings mess up on something so basic. Of course, her opponent did not distinguish himself when he could not name the other freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. I guess that's why we have a Supreme Court.
