Ignorance Is No Excuse

Christine O'Donnell ignorant of the Constitution ...

Tell me that this is a SNL skit. Of course, it probably will be this Saturday.

Amazing women like Barbara Jordan and Shirley Chisholm are probably rolling in their graves. I can also imagine that even Elizabeth Dole & Kay Bailey Hutchinson are hanging their heads.

I have now watched this clip several times and each time I tell myself that this just can't be real. Not only was Ms. O'Donnell unfamiliar with the first amendment but then she proceeded to act obtuse when she was provided with correct information. Not even the audience's laughter seemed to phase her. Did she believe that they were laughing with her?

As the saying goes, "ignorance of the law is no excuse".

Women, from all backgrounds and political persuasions have worked too hard and waited too long to be taken seriously. Now along comes Ms. O'Donnell who quite frankly has embarrassed us all.
