Christine O'Donnell walk out | Piers Morgan interview | CNN | Rumor Fix | Rumor Cop
Former Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell just walked out of an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan when he asked her views on gay marriage.
O'Donnell, who was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight," told the host, "You're borderline being a little bit rude."

Christine O'Donnell:
"Ms. O'Donnell has taken positions against federal financing for stem cell research, is opposed to abortion even in cases of rape and favors tough penalties against businesses that hire illegal immigrants. She has also suggested in past television interviews that evolution is soft science, and questioned the utility of financing AIDS programs.
"In the 1990s, Ms. O'Donnell, a Roman Catholic who for a time considered herself an evangelical, founded SALT (the Savior's Alliance for Lifting the Truth") and appeared on MTV's "Sex in the Nineties" to explain the values of chastity.
She's Roman Catholic, but based on that sketch of her views, they align more closely with an Evangelical worldview (imho).
Glenn Greenwald weighs in with a twist on O'Donnell:
Much of the patronizing derision and scorn heaped on people like Christine O'Donnell have very little to do with their substantive views - since when did right-wing extremism place one beyond the pale? - and much more to do with the fact they're so . . . unruly and unwashed.
The article doesn't say, but I can only assume O'Donnell was referring to Belladonna Took, the mother of Bilbo Baggins.
Christine O'Donnell certainly seems to be running a very odd campaign. She took her website down the day after she won the primary.
"Christine O'Donnell is a nationally recognized political commentator and marketing consultant. She appears weekly, sometimes daily, on national news outlets such as the Fox News Channel, CNN, C-SPAN, MSNBC and ABC, including major ratings hits like "The O'Reilly Factor," "Hannity & Colmes," "The Glenn Beck Show," "Hardball with Chris Matthews" and "Entertainment Tonight. Christine is also a frequent radio talk show guest-host on WGMD in Rehoboth Beach and WDEL in Wilmington, DE.
As part of a delegation of journalists, Christine toured the middle-eastern country of Jordan as a guest of the Royal Jordanian government. Having witnessed firsthand the oppression in the Middle East, Christine describes this journey as truly a life changing experience and says it deepened her commitment to the women's movement.
An effective communicator, Christine is known for her skill in winning over even those who disagree with her most. Liberal Bill Maher stated, "I don't know how many times you've been here but it's always a good show when you're on. Even Democratic strategist James Carville was forced to admit of Christine O'Donnell "Now, this is one hip woman," on CNN's "Crossfire."
During her 20-year career, Christine has served as a social advocate in Washington, D.C., participating in regular White House and Capitol Hill strategy meetings and leading delegations to the United Nations to lobby on behalf of pro-family global policies. She's successfully debated Cabinet members, lawmakers and international leaders."
Here is Karl Rove on O'Donnell, as reported by Glenn Greenwald at the link Margaret provided above:
"One thing that Christine O'Donnell is going to have answer is her own checkered background . . . . These serious questions: how does she make her living?
Rachel Maddow Dishes Christine O'Donnell's Ex-Gay Involvement, 2 Oct 2010 [cached]
Rachel Maddow dishes about Christine O'Donnell, the Republican nominee for Delaware's special election for the United States Senate, and her being heavily into the ex-gay movement that falsely claims to change gays into straights. How? By cuddling with men, hitting pillows with tennis racquets while yelling about your parents, and, of course, with lots and lots of biblical prayer. O'Donnell was president & founder of The SALT (Savior's Alliance for Lifting the Truth) and talks about the "Values" movement that claims to "cure" homosexuality. She recently shook up the Republican party by winning the Delaware primary election for that party's US Senate nominee with support from the "Tea Party" movement.

As a Christian right activist, O'Donnell has decried homosexuality, condemning the sexual orientation as a "perversion. SALT not only campaigned against masturbation; it crusaded against homosexuality and other "un-Christian" sexual behaviors. O'Donnell, according to The Daily Beast, would go on speaking tours to discuss "sexual purity and curing homosexuality.
O'Donnell also blasted the federal government for giving too much money to AIDS patients. And earlier in her career, she worked as a press secretary for the Concerned Women for America, which has long railed against "the homosexual agenda.
Her long list of Facebook "likes" include "The word 'Fuck,'" Christine O'Donnell for US Senate, the No H8 Campaign (which opposed a 2008 California ballot proposition to ban gay marriage), the Dalai Lama, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Christine O'Donnell has been a poster girl for Christian fundamentalism and social conservatism; Jennie O'Donnell has been something of a hippie-artist.
Still, Jennie has loyally been helping her anti-gay sister Christine become one of nation's top lawmakers.
