I will be honest, I don't know which of these two I like less -- Piers Morgan or Christine O'Donnell. Here's video of her walking off his show Wednesday after he questioned her about gay marriage and then asked why she was acting "so weird. " Call it mutual exploitation by two low-level pop culture hustlers. After a disaster of a Senate run, she needs to do something to cut through the clutter and try to get some attention for a new book that no one in their right mind should want to buy. He needs to do something besides spending every other day trying to knock down new allegations about what he knew and/or approved when it came to phone hacking and other unethical acts while he was a tabloid editor in the UK. The latest allegation involving a phone message from Paul McCartney is far from being put to rest despite Morgan's latest bursts of bravado and denials.

GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's campaign wants you to know that he is a Motocross rider in his spare time "to relax" -- and that he is apparently very, very cool.  No surprise, this ad comes from Fred Davis, who made Christine O'Donnell's famous "I am not a witch" ad and Carly Fiorina's "Demon sheep" ad. (Which are, incidentally, my two favorite ads of the last campaign cycle.)  A previous Davis ad for Huntsman (President Obama's former ambassador to China) also mentioned his former rock band, "Wizard.

— It wasn't just the wind whipping up the crowd of about 200 outside Calvert County Republican headquarters Friday afternoon. "In Maryland of all places, we know we can win because we have done it before," former Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele told GOP supporters. Now chairman of the Republican National Committee, Steele has spent the past six weeks on a 48-state "Fire Pelosi" tour, promoting Republican congressional candidates to turn out the Democratic House speaker. The odyssey arrives in Severna Park today for a rally with Andy Harris, the Republican state lawmaker attempting to unseat freshman Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil in the 1st Congressional District.

Watching election night coverage on the cable networks was quite entertaining, though I don't know why dozens of people were huddled together on CNN's set. It looked like the Last Supper squared. This is the kind of thing the fabled empty suits in TV land think is a good idea. It's not, unless confusion is the goal. Knowing the general shape of things — that the Democrats were going to be shellacked, with the only question being the extent of the shellacking — I couldn't resist looking at and listening to the gaggle of committed Obama worshipers on MSNBC either.

The ascendance of Christine O'Donnell, Delaware's tea party-backed candidate for the U.S. Senate, has women like me cringing like we haven't done since Sarah Palin arrived on the scene. Please, God. Not another ditz with baggage and a loopy belief system. Ms. O'Donnell — and the never-married 41-year-old might object to that courtesy title — was the surprise winner of the Republican nomination in our neighbor state, running with Ms. Palin's endorsement and on her platform of patriotic platitudes.

Much has been made of Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's views about sexual abstinence, including that masturbation is against evangelical values. However unrealistic her views on such matters, these statements alone don't preclude her from being a good senator. Unfortunately, other statements of hers do. Abstinence is unrealistic and cannot be the basis for federal policy. Federal data indicate that fewer than 10 percent of Americans abstain from sex before marriage.

I can't help it, I'm a political rubbernecker. Although there was plenty of electoral action here, I've been watching aghast but unable to avert my eyes from the Republican primary election train wreck next door in Delaware. Surely you, too, have followed the story of the tea party princess who slew the evil establishment dude to become the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate. Christine O'Donnell, a red-jacketed, bespectacled Sarah Palin wannabe, trounced Rep. Mike Castle, a reliable moderate in what used to be a reliably moderate state, in what surely must be a new electoral low: a campaign that apparently revolved around whether Castle needed to put on, as she so daintily phrased it, his man-pants.

"Man up, Harry Reid," Republican senatorial candidate and tea party darling Sharron Angle recently said in one of the more sexually telling comments about the current state of American politics. Ever since the gender gap was discovered by pollsters in the 1980s, it has been accepted wisdom that a majority of American men support Republicans, while a preponderance of women back Democrats. Republicans have been called the "daddy" party, supporting a strong defense, and Democrats have been deemed the "mommy" party, supporting social welfare priorities.

Meeting at a swim and tennis club in this tony Washington suburb, the Montgomery County Tea Party activists demanded answers from Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s pick for lieutenant governor. What will the Republican former governor do to hunt down illegal immigrants if he wins in November? Which government programs will he cut to pay for promised tax cuts? What business regulations will he lift? And the most heated query: Why, the small crew pressed lieutenant gubernatorial hopeful Mary Kane during their meeting last week, won't Ehrlich debate his conservative GOP primary challenger?
