Oh no, O'Donnell is against repealing the 17th Amendment (see her comment in the video), but I thought the Tea Party was in lock step?
Many Americans were shocked by the debate over the 1st Amendment between Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell and her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons.
This time witchcraft was not the center of the zeitgeist, rather it was something much more central to American life. The 1st Amendment began showing up in Google Trends near the end of the day Tuesday, along with “separation of church and state.”
It lead many to wonder if people were fact-checking O’Donnell or brushing up for themselves on the Bill of Rights.
Ironically (or perhaps quite fittingly), the O’Donnell-Coons argument over the Constitution's exact wording occurred in a law school.
At Widener University Law School, the two candidates stumbled onto the topic of....
...“church and state” when they began talking about creationism -- Coons said that “religious doctrine doesn’t belong in our public schools.”
From there, O’Donnell began to question where in the Constitution it ever said “church and state.”
