Christine O'Donnell Is Still Around

Here’s yesterday’s now-famous moment when Christine O’Donnell walked off Piers Morgan Tonight. O’Donnell has been mostly forgotten since 2010 (when she was one of the few Republicans to lose a major election, along with Sharron Angle), but now she’s back with a book, and even if it wasn’t planned, this scene will get more publicity for the book than just appearing on Piers Morgan. It seems like every time we have a chance of forgetting Piers Morgan Tonight exists, something happens to bring it back into the spotlight for a day. O’Donnell’s follow-up comment – “I only agreed to go on the Piers Morgan Show because he promised not to hack my cell phone” – was reasonably amusing. But her performance on the show had the unfortunate effect of making Morgan seem sympathetic, something previously considered scientifically impossible.
