Format: Hardcover
"Conservatives do themselves no favors by defending this woman." -- L. Brent Bozell, American conservative writer and activist

Before, Christine O'Donnell really wanted to tell you something: She's not a witch. She's you! Now, she wanted to tell you something else: She really, really, really regrets that ad. And she's not afraid to be a "trouble maker" and blame everybody for that bad, bad, ad. She was "tricked" into recording a take or two for that ad. It wasn't her fault!

I was hoping that O'Donnell's 15 minutes of fame were long since over, however in this day and age, any loser (she did lose the election, remember) can get a book deal. What's next? Maybe a reality show, like fellow loser Sarah Palin? Back to the contents of the book....

A tirade against Fred Davis, a campaign manager, over the witch ad turns into a feel-good message about trusting your instincts and not listening to the "experts". It's actually kind of creepy when she gets into this, going on about trusting her inner instincts. Of which, basically, we've seen no evidence of any such instincts existing, but whatever works for you Christine. She insists that trusting her instincts helped her in the past. I call it dumb luck. Or maybe bad luck, since she's still yet to win an election....

The Republicans in Delaware didn't seem to trust her instincts. They seemed to consider her too far out there, and since she never won an election, they didn't get behind her. And the blame game begins anew. Nobody is spared the blame, from the mean media (now, where have I heard that one before?) to the Delaware Republicans.

I was bored with all the background stuff about her family and upbringing although it did shed light on the Christine O'Donnell that we know now.

not a good book Sept. 4 2011
By openthinker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For the record I DID read this book, and I am thankful I did NOT buy it. This book was so built up by Christine to be some kind of vindication for her failed senate run. What you get instead is just the blame game repeated over and over and over. As a conservative myself, taking responsibility for ones actions is a moral obligation. I'm afraid Christine has a lot of learning to do.

terrible Aug. 27 2011
By rightwingnut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is simple talking points at best. Clearly, no thought went into writing this book. I would not recommend it to anyone with a brain.

Not What I Expected Aug. 18 2011
By B. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This purchase left me with a lot of disappoint of expectations fallen short. And I'll have to admit this is partially my fault for not completely reading the description. The price, $17, seemed a bit on the high side, but I eventually I convinced myself that it was totally worth it to hear Christine O'Donnell cover a Weezer song. Imagine my surprise when the package arrived and not only was it not a Weezer cover, it wasn't even a song. I would have given this book 1 star, but my cats seem to really like it. It's not as good as their regular litter, but atleast it wasn't money wasted.

Riveting From Start to Finish!! Aug. 18 2011
By ilove25or6to4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I couldn't put it down!! Every word, gripping me by its truth, wit, and intellect. From her novel ideas about the country's issues to her own account of the singular phenomenon that was her campaign, every character in this book is worth at least two reads. I highly recommend this book for people on both sides of the aisle. You will be stunned by her true brilliance, shining through now more than ever.

...

Hahahahahahahaha. Nah, I kid. It sucked.

Not for the mentally Evolved Aug. 18 2011
By Pete Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have been intrigued by Christine ever since her appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher, way back in the day (where she originally offered up that she had "dabbled" in "witchcraft"). I purchased this book hoping to gain some insight into the type of person she is and what led her to think that she was fit to run for any type of public office.

I received this book yesterday afternoon and finished it late last night. I wasn't aware that she (like myself) was from a family of 4 other siblings, and also (again like myself) was raised in Pennsylvania.

This unfortunately is where the similarities ended. Because she is a complete nutjob. Says things like, "The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery. So you can't masturbate without lust."
"God may choose to heal someone from cancer, yet that person still has a great deal of medical bills. The outstanding bills do not determine whether or not the patient has been healed by God."
"One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn't know it. I mean, there's little blood there and stuff like that. ...We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar."

She's a wingnut and needs to be marginalized, similar to Sarah Palin and her belief that the earth is only 6,000 years old, and that man and dinosaur co-existed. It's time to stop just smiling and nodding our heads at these nitwits. Speak up and challenge their idiocy.
