Christine O'Donnell has not been given
a fair shake, says radio talk show host Bill Colley.
Tea party favorite O'Donnell, a
frequent guest on Colley's show, which airs on Rehoboth Beach,
Delaware's WGMD, created a stir last week when she ended
an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight.
The former Republican nominee for the
U.S. Senate from Delaware bolted soon after host Piers Morgan asked
her questions about gay marriage and whether she shared Minnesota
Rep. Michele Bachmann's opinion that “Don't Ask, Don't Tell”
repeal should be undone.
In subsequent interviews, O'Donnell
explained that she wasn't ruffled by those questions but instead it
was a previous question on masturbation that turned the interview
sour for her. She called Morgan sexist and accused him of
“borderline sexual harassment.”
During the interview, Morgan played a
clip of a younger O'Donnell saying “masturbation is wrong” during
an MTV forum. He then asked her whether she still felt the same way.
“If he was sitting there talking to
Barack Obama or Joe Biden or any other male Senate candidates,
talking about masturbation and all of this stuff, it would've been
creepy,” O'Donnell said.
Colley defended O'Donnell's actions,
suggesting the media had brought it upon itself.
“I think I know Christine O'Donnell
well enough to say she doesn't trust nor like much of mainstream
wrote in an op-ed. “After her experience campaigning for U.S.
Senate last year, why would she?”
O'Donnell, Colley added, “never gets
much of a fair shake.”
“O'Donnell is like a great many
American conservatives, deeply suspicious of a dog continually
snapping and biting,” he wrote.
