“Tragedy”

I’m sure Christine O’Donnell will be a long forgotten footnote within a few years, but for now, she remains a gift that keeps on giving.  This is just mind-boggling:

Christine O’Donnell on Tuesday compared the “tragedy” of extending unemployment benefits to Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards.

“Today marks a lot of tragedy,” O’Donnell, who lost her recent bid for a Delaware Senate seat despite strong backing from the Tea Party, said Tuesday night during an appearance in Virginia.

“Tragedy comes in threes,” O’Donnell said. “Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama’s announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits.”

You can’t make this stuff up.
