Who will I vote for?

I wasn't impressed by Christine O'Donnell in the primary.  To me she is too girlish, too Sally Fields.  I would have preferred more gravitas.  And I particularly don't like her signature "I'm not a witch" ad, a bit too simple-minded for my taste.

Still, I don't like the way everybody is picking on her, starting with the Republican Senatorial Committee and her opponent,  the media, and, of all things, a bunch of rude and ignorant law students.   She had the guts to run when everyone thought she didn't have a chance, and that's a brave thing to do.  Also, she was the choice of the Republican voters, who apparently did not want to be represented by Mike Castle and turned out in force to send that very message.  She represents those voters, and their exercise of their franchise should be respected.

I don't like women in politics being  treated like Gorgons.  A case in point:  Hillary Clinton.  She was viciously attacked in the most personal way.  Sharron Angle gets called a rude name.

“What is it that makes conservative women, who work inside and outside of the home, such a threat to liberal women like Joy? What has Sharron Angle done to deserve being described so profanely by Ms. Behar?”

Good question.

So, for that and other reasons, I expect to vote for O'Donnell.  I am a Republican, anyway.
