  1. Piers Morgan at his very best i would say!!! Quite hilarious.

    1. Another Hannah 18 Aug 2011, 1:00pm

      I don’t think she’s got the hang of this political interview stuff – they ask the questions peopel want to know, not the ones politicians wnat to answer. If they’re any good anyway. Seems very, very dim – surely she would be better kept in a safe place for her own and everyone else’s protection?

      1. Perhaps Christine O’Donnell could be given her own private cell in a secure religious institution, preferably in some remote location.

  2. Both of them are weird – just in different ways

    1. Yes, Christine O’Donnell would look so awesome wearing the headdress of The Flying Nun.
      (I think the headdress is called a wimple)

      1. Apologies to Sally Field, the actress who played the role of The Flying Nun in the vintage television series.

    Aw, diddums!

  4. A pearl of Piers Morgan. I don’t really like him, but this is just fab.

  5. The woman is to be ignored

    1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 2:03pm

      @Wildseas..
      …absolutely not, she has the backing of the Xtians and the vast underclass of the US population which number upwards of 100 million and who are just as dumb as she is. This lot could conceiveably gain power.

      1. Got to agree she is to close to power to be ignored we need to ridicule her and show everyone how dim she really is.

  6. DJ Sheepiesheep 18 Aug 2011, 11:24am

    I think it was Stephen Fry who said that the definition of “countryside” was “killing Piers Morgan”. However, I think it now means killing (metaphorically, as in showing them up in a live interview) a Tea Party bigot. Well done Piers Morgan!

  7. Jock S. Trap 18 Aug 2011, 11:28am

    Just what the world needs yet another Bigotted witch.

    Not a fan of Piers but good one him for pushing this issue. Clearly if she didn’t want to talk about certain issues she should have written a book with said issues included.

    A bit of a hit and run person who clearly knows whats he says is wrong, why else would she run away.

    Another typical Christian Bullsh!tter.

  8. Another story about a homophobic American nonentity unknown on this side of the pond.

    1. Did she really write a book?

      1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 1:36pm

        No Sarah Palin wrote it for her…not, lol

    2. Well Pink News has developed an extremely unprofessional and embarrassing habit of ‘borrowing’ US specific stories from US specific websites and pretending they have some sort of relevance for their UK based audience.

      1. Given the importance the USA plays in global affairs, this matter IS of importance to us.

        1. David Myers 19 Aug 2011, 8:34am

          Agreed . . . and I am reading from Canada!

      2. Well done steve, hope its not too cramped for you, ya know with your head in all that sand.

      3. If one of these freaks gets elected President next year, trust me, it will be very relevent for us. See what happened when the financial crisis affecting US banks hit, see what happened when they decided to go to war in Iraq.

        The ‘LGBT’ angle is something that will affect many UK citizens with partners in the US, or people like me who enjoy a visit there, but wouldn’t want to go somewhere that a dangerous freak like Michelle Bachmann was in charge of.

  9. Dr Herbert Shellface 18 Aug 2011, 11:35am

    It shows the lack of political maturity of the tea bag movement

  10. Piers actually finishes up the interview saying its a good book!

    She talks about a second American Revolution (actually the first one was a just a rebellion, the American Civil War was more of a revolution). Is this the woman who threatened to march on Washington bearing weapons if she didn’t get her own way?

    1. omg, if so she’s a riot inciter. Lock her up for 4 years!

    2. Another Hannah 18 Aug 2011, 12:54pm

      No if it’s done by the poor it’s a riot, but by the wealthy like this it’s good solid political straight talking.

    3. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 2:06pm

      @ A N Spit..
      …i think perhaps he was being ironic when he said that as the book has been widly panned in the US and is deemed to be unreadable in its sheer stupidity.

  11. I hate piers morgan usually but good on him.

    I love the fact she went on a show to talk about a book and didn’t understand why she might actually be asked about the things in her book.

    1. Another Hannah 18 Aug 2011, 12:56pm

      strange for a Roman Catholic (Piers Morgan is – popery is important, because at least a few of them are going to do a little of the pope’s doing. don’t usually mind piers morgan.

      1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 1:38pm

        @A Hannah..
        ….wanna have another go at that Hannah, cant decipher what you are trying to sqay sorry.

  12. Wow Pink News.

    Yet ANOTHER story about someone who is almost completely unknown to the majority of readers of your website.

    It’s sort of sad really.

    I’ve mentioned it before but last Sunday 4,000 people engaged in a marriage equality march in Dublin.

    Does Pink News mention that.

    Oh no – instead they focus on complete unknowns from the other side of the Atlantic.

    Although I suppose it’s easier for Pink News simply to lift stories directly from US websites.

    1. Towleroad people.

      See many of Pink News’s stories on that website, hours before they appear on here.

      1. Simple. Set your own news website up if you can do better? There are others if you don’t like this one.

        1. I don’t dislike Pink News. I am merely concerned about their recent tactic of relentless plagiarism.

          If Pink News is going to lift stories directly from US websites then at least they should credit their sources.

          Like I already said Pink News is completely ignoring stories far closer to home (March for Marriage, Dublin 2011 for example).

          instead we are getting irrelevant stories copied almost word for word from the Towleroad website.

          1. I look at two. This one…..

            http://ukgaynews.org.uk/latest.htm

            And pink news. They both have their merits.

    2. Another Hannah 18 Aug 2011, 12:58pm

      you do wonder at he relevance to the UK, esp. when they seem to ignore many of the pretty terrible things that go on here – but of course many of us are people of no importance – that’s the stupidity of the Rupert class here.

      1. And PN’s coverage of the US news is usually pretty bad. Full of errors, lacking in context for European readers. Anyone know a better site for gay news in Europe?

    3. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 2:13pm

      @SteveC..
      ..she has actually become well known worldwide for her sheer stupidity and is known as a poster girl for the Creationist crowd. If you Google her you will be astounded by the amount of stuff about her on the web. She and Palin are now the butt of a huge amount of mockery on the more upmarket and intelligent American TV outlets but she is still hugely popular amongst the less informed of the Us population and unfortunately for the rest of the world they number upwards of a third of Americans.

      1. Oh I’ve heard of her for sure as I read US websites.

        I just don’t see how this woman is of any relevance to a UK audience on a UK website.

        Likewise stories relating to US TV shows.

        1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 4:29pm

          @SteveC..
          …i think probably the relevance was that it was an Englishman questioning her about her gay rights stance. To be honest I enjoy gay relevant stories wherever they come from.

          1. David Myers 19 Aug 2011, 8:37am

            I feel the same way Paddyswurds. We’re a world movement and all fronts count.

  13. Christine Beckett 18 Aug 2011, 1:19pm

    Nutjob.

    1. Not right now thanks.

      1. David Myers 19 Aug 2011, 8:38am

        Love it!

  14. Stupid bigoted woman. It’s gonna be scary if this tea party lot get any more power in America.

    1. Do they even know how to make a decent pot of tea? Without teabags?

      1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 5:06pm

        The Tea party name comes from the American Revolution circa 1775/6 when a group of men stormed a Tea clipper in Boston Harbor and threw all the tea it carried over board into the water in protest at British taxes especially those on Tea which were exorbitant. It became known as the Boston Tea Party. Hence O’Donnells reference in the clip to the second American revolution that being the first or part of.

  15. I am interested in Gay issues regardless of which country they are based in….by persons known or unknown to me. Its my opinion (and I am entitled to it) that its narrow minded to concern ourselves only with Gay issues in our own country or those geographically close to us.
    Ps. I live in Belfast and knew nothing about the march in Dublin.

    1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 1:41pm

      It was on RTE news, and UTV news friday nite and again sat evening.

  16. SteveC, it always amazes me why we’re not seeing any marriage equality marches in England. It’s always Ireland or Scotland making the most noise. Good for Ireland, though. I hope momentum builds there to make it legal.

  17. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 1:58pm

    O’Donnell, Palin & Bachmann et al are members of the nutjob Tea Party, a branch of the American Republican Party which is roughly akin to the Tories here altho vastly less intelligent. The Tea baggers as they have become known are a bunch of xtian ultra right wing conservatives who are intent on bringing the US back to the 40s and 50s. They oppose any form of social reform like Health, housing or Gay rights. They believe that the Earth is only 6000 years old and that dinosaurs existed with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden wherever that was. They rabidly oppose evolution and want creationism taught in schools alongside science. They came up with the Intelligent Design theory and some of them have claimed that Paul Revere was a British agent during the American Revolution. This crowd really do need to be watched closely because the have the backing of a huge number xtians and of the less intelligent of the American population and which surprisingly is quite large.

    1. So they’re quite progressive for Americans then?

      1. Paddyswurds 18 Aug 2011, 5:07pm

        @ A N Spit..
        …eh?

    2. David Myers 19 Aug 2011, 8:42am

      They scream bloody murder when you call them “teabaggers” and claim we are making sexist comments about them, even though they (the tea partyers) were the first to call themselves that – before they found out what it meant. Hilarious!

  18. If she can’t take criticism, she shouldn’t dole it out. This rule is especially important to observe if you are a repellent freal like O’ Donnell, Bachmann, Palin and numerous other wingnut crazies.

  19. She isn’t exactly relevant to us in the UK. But I do find her hilarious – I mean come ON, has there ever been another politician (a word I use with reluctance) who had to do a campaign advert that included the immortal line “I am not a witch?” I literally cried with laughter for an hour the first time I saw it. She is a standard right wing mouthpiece who probably doesn’t believe a word she is saying and has made a career spouting asinine drivel to uneducated morons.

  20. i just don’t how understand how there don’t appear to be any remotely intelligent republicans in america. i might disagree with them, but at least the conservatives in this country can string a sentence together.

    1. There are some, like the lawyer fighting for equality of marriage through the California Courts, and the Iowa judges who unanimously ruled in favour of marriage equality, only to lose their jobs through the campaigning of the extreme nut jobs.

  21. She’s a coward, this only reinforces that fact. I would hate to see what she does if they have to deal with multiple issues.

  22. Suzibikerbabe 18 Aug 2011, 10:26pm

    She does have some relavance to the UK; she represents the complete lack of intellect and compassion the republicans are now no longer hiding. They are arrogant and completely one-minded in driving the U.S. into the ground and when we go, so goes many others (not arrogance but the likely outcome). People like o’donnell are infesting our system and in order to make the rich richer and the poor their servants they’re willing to bring down the enitre world economy. o’donnell really thought she’d get the Fox treatment: she dictates the questions the interviewer asks. Which is necessary because I’m sure she didn’t write the book so when Piers went off topic, she was lost.

  23. I’ve warmed to piers morgan over te years. He has gotten. Lot better since e got out of the editor buisness with all it’s sleaze and now is moving on up in the world.

    Is there a video of this interview I wonder. I must look.

  24. Just watched the long version of the video masturbation part and all and he absolutely slaughtered her.

    Was fantastic. She really was trying to run away. How could you vot for a woman who can’t talk about what she wrote in her own book.

    That’s just embaressing lol

    1. I saw the O’Donnell “anti-masturbation” video here:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzHcqcXo_NA

      O’Donnell also uses code words like “salty” that the fundamentalist Philippa Stroud of the Gov’t advisory group The Centre for Social Justice here in UK also uses (Philippa Stroud of the cast out gay demons notoriety and who believes wives should take orders from their husbands)
      CHRISTIAN DOMINIONISTS use code words like “salty”, “transformation” & “church planting” etc so that they can quickly identify who is working toward the same dominionist agenda, witness their achievements in Uganda and the attempted creation of holocaust conditions for gay men and lesbian women there, they aim to eliminate homosexuality and homosexuals which they deem demonic and Satanic
      There’s lots of them, they are very focussed zealots and they form a global network of allied fundamentalist churches and individuals encouraged to take religion with them into politics & Gov’t to further the Dominionist agenda.

      1. SALT as spelled out by Christine O’Donnell.
        Saviours Alliance for Lifting the Truth (apparently)

    2. David Myers 19 Aug 2011, 8:45am

      She’s no longer running for office after her overwhelming defeat in the 2010 congressional elections.
