What Will Be the Next Wacky Story About Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell? (VIDEO)

What Will Be the Next Wacky Story About Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell?Christine O'Donnell is the recent surprise winner of the Delaware state Republican primary. Ms. O'Donnell is a member of the Tea Party, and was a huge underdog in the race, but she managed to defeat former Governor and nine-term Congressman Mike Castle. But her stunning victory isn't the only surprising thing about her.

Ever since she won the race, Christine has pretty much been constantly in the news, and her name keeps popping up in relation to various odd stories. There was her belief that all masturbation is "sinful." There was her belief that scientists were creating a new type of mouse with a human brain.

And in perhaps the strangest tale of all -- there was O'Donnell's past revelation that she had dabbled in witchcraft. ... But what could possibly come next for the Tea Partier?

On the 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), host Stephen Colbert tries to figure out what the latest weird story will be for O'Donnell. And in order to guess, he has invented the "CHRISTINE O'DONNELL CLIP PREDICTOR 3000." Good stuff.

Here's how the "Predictor" works: Colbert spins a bunch of wheels with an arrow, and the contraption decides what the next big O'Donnell story will be -- and what TV program will break the story. Here are two potential breaking Christine-related news events that the wheel comes up with. Could this be what the future holds?

1) She "Killed a Drifter With a Zombie" -- and the story will show up on Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations.'

2) Ms. O'Donnell "Robbed a Bank With a Merman." This upcoming scoop will be revealed on the series 'Meerkat Manor.'

Hmmm ... Neither one of these sounds that much less plausible then some of the prior randomness linked to Christine. But we may not be done yet. Colbert says that if Christine doesn't come on his show, he'll spin the wheel again. This, by the way, is a veiled reference to the fact that Bill Maher has threatened to keep on showing odd video clips of her unless she agrees to appear on 'Politically Incorrect.' So between Colbert, Maher and O'Donnell, the weirdness may never end.

"This, by the way, is a veiled reference to the fact that Bill Maher has threatened to keep on showing odd video clips of her unless she agrees to appear on 'Politically Incorrect.'"
---------------------------------

That'd be a good stunt since "Politically Incorrect" (what a misnomer THAT turned out to be) hasn't aired in years. My God, if she doesn't do what Maher wants, she might lose the votes of Maher's lock step thinking viewers who think a smug self-absorbed comedian knows anything about politics.

The hysteria over this women's mere candidacy is what's really funny.

It doesn't matter what group of people watch the Bill Maher show. What matters is that when Bill Maher showed her talking about dabbling in witchcraft, it became national headlines. This Friday and future shows when he shows more of her life, they too will become national headlines.

I knew plenty like her back in high school of the penguin variety. She's a whackjob plain and simple, I see it in the eyes like I did back then who fall for the brainwashing. I can see a nut slipping by to be a Representative every so often for a 2 year term, but for a 6 year Senate term? Seriously are the voters that low information, sorry stupid dumb, to even consider such a unqualified unknown for such a position? Are the schools that bad in that state that they produced a bunch of noloads who can't see past their own self interests? What the hell are the voters in Delaware on?
Are they that easily manipulated and salivate when someone just says god, guns, big government to hell with everyone and thing else? Is America just full of the stupiddumb that these candidates are crawling around now?
