You almost wish that Christine O'Donnell would reach out to the people at American Catholic and see if she could hire someone there to be her campaign manager. They write about the controversy surrounding O'Donnell's remarks on masturbation: "Kudos to O’Donnell for speaking out on this topic, if she still holds these views. It shouldn’t diminish her standing as a candidate one bit, and ought to raise it in the eyes of Christians, though what should or shouldn’t happen, and what will happen are of course two very different things." The point is not what she had to say, really, but the unseemliness of not leaving the conversation to a child's parents. On video. On MTV.
