The uproar from the mainstream media over the various issues surrounding Christine O'Donnell and her campaign to be a senator from Delaware is worthy of soap opera of the year.

It’s not necessary to repeat all of the perceived faults of this candidate that are being trumpeted by an unbelievable group of hypocrites, who have made no mention of what she hasn’t done. For example, she didn’t drive her car off a bridge, leaving a passenger to drown. She didn’t hide $90,000 in bribe money in her freezer. She didn’t buy Caribbean property and fail to pay taxes or declare it on required financial reports. And she didn’t send sexual text messages to House pages.

I could go on, but the point is that the crimes and misdeeds of the favorite few are ignored by the very media who would try to convince us that the financial struggles and youthful statements of Miss O'Donnell are somehow more worthy of attention than the serious misdeeds of members of Congress.

It seems to me that if we compare what she did do with what she didn’t do, she would make a great senator.
