Can We Stop Talking About Christine O'Donnell?

This is embarrassing:

"Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell didn't get too much national media coverage before upsetting the Republican establishment and winning the Delaware primary in September. But since then, O'Donnell's been all over the news—confirming she's not witch, questioning the separation of church and state, appearing in newly surfaced 'Politically Incorrect' clips from the late '90s, and starring in a salacious Gawker story."

Of course, O'Donnell has never been within striking distance of actually winning the Senate seat -- which means all the bloviating outside of Delaware about her witchiness, weirdness and sex life was just a distracting sideshow. Which we're used to getting from the media, granted, but it's still a shame and waste of limited coverage resources.
