The Other 'Christine O'Donnell for U.S. Senate' Website

Christine O'Donnell, a conservative media commentator who is running for U.S. Senate in Delaware--and who may just be the next Tea-Party-backed candidate to make waves with an upset in this election year--apparently has at least one enemy with a sense of umor.

Google "Christine O'Donnell for Senate," and you'll find not only her 2010 campaign site, but also what remains of her campaign site from 2008, when she ran and lost against Vice President Biden (who was on the ballot for re-election before and after being selected as Barack Obama's runningmate). The domain has evidently been taken over by a "personal injury lawyer," Warren Redlich, who seems not to like O'Donnell very much.

The site explains, at the top:

This is the former campaign website for Christine O'Donnell's 2008 run for US Senate in Delaware. The web address was acquired by a personal injury lawyer in an attempt to preserve the historic record of Ms. O'Donnell's campaign. However, Ms. O'Donnell didn't like that, so now we're just going to make fun of her.

And under the heading "Campaign Update":

This is where we used to have her message to supporters.

Now we'll just say she's a stinky poop.

And she has bad hair days too

Blow-ups of less-than-flattering O'Donnell photos adorn the "Gallery" section. About Christine O'Donnell: "She appears to be an empty-headed fake conservative talking head on television. Is there any real substance?" Endorsements: "You gotta be kidding. Who would endorse this pin head?"

Well, Tea Party Express, for one. Fresh off their victory in Alaska (where the group spent somewhere in the vicinity of $600,000 to propel Joe Miller to the biggest electoral upset of the year), Tea Party Express is planning to spend $250,000 for O'Donnell in the home stretch of her Sept. 14 Republican primary against moderate Congressman Mike Castle.
