Ken Layne is so happy these two people are losing their midterm election and he will never have to look at a fat person again.If those previous Christine O’Donnell revelations didn’t lock up these midterms for the Democratic Party, surely this will: Her LinkedIn profile is incorrect! She didn’t go to the University of Oxford, even though she said she did! Hooray, all is saved! Democrats will have a full 80 seats in the next Senate! Ignorance is out, smart people are here! No ridiculous ideologues will ever step foot in Congress again! And there will be a reverent ferocity of masturbation from Senate office to Senate office, from House seat to House seat, from on top of Robert Byrd’s coffin to inside Ted Kennedy’s coffin, and all across this great land. Finally, we can take solace in knowing Christine O’Donnell will not be elected.

O’Donnell’s LinkedIn bio page lists “University of Oxford” as one of the schools she attended, claiming she studied “Post Modernism in the New Millennium.” But it turns out that was just a course conducted by an institution known as the Phoenix Institute, which merely rented space at Oxford.

How did she get the time and money to fuck off to England and take this stupid class? Who knows?!

These things just happen in our new, POST MODERN millennium. And so third-party candidate “A Feeling of Angst” will defeat Harry Reid and Sharron Angle in Nevada, but that won’t stop Democrats from taking back Congress from whom it was already taken. [Plum Line]

    Gotta hand it to the Phoenix Institute. Heck of a football team this season.

  • Lucidamente1

    That would be the University of Oxford, Arkansas (go fighting inbreeders!)

    • V572625694

      Or Mississippi. That's where Ole Miss is.

      • Lucidamente1

        Yeah, but that's a real school.

      • PresBeeblebrox

        Or Miami of Ohio, which is in Oxford, Ohio. Oh, wait – that's a real skool too.

        Every day the O'Donnell-related lulz continue. However, I am still scared shitless that the rednecks in southern Delaware will get her elected.

  • Cake_or_Death

    At least the Phoenix Institute sounds like it is from Arizona, not Mexico. That should count, right?

    • Katydid

      We're out of cake, we didn't know there'd be such a rush.

  • natoslug

    For someone so anti-masturbatory, she certainly spends a lot of time screwing herself. Is it really that hard not to lie about easily-verified things? It's like facts no longer matter (a subject the king of France and I were just discussing last night, on board my 600 foot space yacht).

    Christine O'Donnell’s Education
    Fairleigh Dickinson University
    1989 — 1993

    Claremont Graduate University
    Constitutional Government

    University of Oxford
    “Post Modernism in the New Millennium”

    Those last 2 could have been lectures she slept through. Padding one's resume thus is pretty masturbatory.

    • It's the only kind of masturbation she can handle. That and a jackhammer going at 400K pulses a minute.

    • So this is all about semiotics?

    • CapnFatback

      Where's the entry for the successful completion of the Tea Party Coloring Book?

      So basically she just took this online class while waiting until the kids got home from school when she could have surfed over to like every other stay at home mom and dad. Poseur.

      We used to call the first one Fairleigh Ridiculous…at least for undergrads it's where you spend too much money for a private school education because you couldn't get into one of NJ's better public schools.

    So she's even less "elite" than previously thought and her demonstrable, never-ending stupidity means she wins in a landslide.

      The way your negative pee rating is displayed is so alarming…looks like something bad will happen to you any minute…maybe Obamur will kick you off the interents forever or something. Take care.

      • Actually, someone from Wonkette just knocked on my door here in France and told me to cut the krap, get back to the business of America. "ÇA SUFFIT!" he said. Oy!

    • Extemporanus

      I have nothin' but love for left-leaning starving artists, and especially those who display a talent (sickness?) for creating compelling obsessive compulsive collages and art hacks, which you often do. I even wrote a few words about you once a few years ago, when doing that sorta thing was my dumb job.

      That said, ya gotta pick the right venue to pass the hat, mon ami. I'd suggest not advertising the fact that you're competing in a contest to serve as window dressing for an over-hyped clothing store chain, and also not having your nom de Wonkette link to your own blog rather than to your IntenseDebate profile ("your one-stop past comments shop") like everyone else here. I know times is tough, but still…

      In other words: Keep those safety scissors sheathed, and we won't be forced to go all Serrano on your pee score.

      Bonne chance with your upcoming exhibits, you ex-pat traitor to Real America, you!

  • JMPEsq

    Is the Phoenix Institute part of the University of Phoenix? If that's the case, that doesn't even count as a course or a school, but just useless crap.

  • O.K., I did. Looks like a cool, or at any rate an ambitious project. I get carpal tunnel syndrome just thinking about it.

  • RightWrite

    Thank God this Rightist O'Donnell has been exposed for not attending this class she attended at Oxford — or was it at Oxford, but not at Oxford, but at Oxford not but not…damn. Kind of like Obama not being a socialist member in college — or not worshiping the Cloward/Piven Bible.

    • CapnFatback

      Obama has a socialist member?!1:-9:-08=====>

      • JMPEsq

        To be fair, I assume RigtWrite is using the wingnut's definition of socialism, which is "to the left of Mussolini". Also it automatically is bad.

        • CapnFatback

          I assume a socialist member is one that really spreads its seed around, a la "redistributing the spunk."

      Jeremy Piven wrote a bible?

      • x111e7thst

        It is universally accepted that Cloward and Piven's article gave ACORN the idea to start peddling subprime mortgages to poor minorities in the 1980s, knowingly laying the groundwork for a global economic meltdown nearly thirty years later. What is less well understood is that these two Moriartys of the Radical Left slipped Christine O'D the drugs that cause her to babble endlessly about masturbation and lie every time she opens her mouth. WAKE UP SHEEPLE

    • smokefilledroommate

      'RightWrite'? Is that the new Conservative supermarket?


  • BaldarTFlagass

    Didn't she admit to being a bit of a roundheels in school? Maybe she meant "University of Suckmycocksford."

  • She went to Oxford in the same way that I went to the Sorbonne. Really. And I tell people I went to the Sorbonne, because they´re impressed with that. But, little miss Christinerbeaner, I´m not running for the United States fucking Senate.

  • hooray4anything

    I think the most surprising thing here is that she actually wanted to play up Oxford as not only is it one of the leading colleges in the world but it's in another country. Why would she think that any Republican would think that's a good thing? If she really wanted to impress people in her party, she should have just lied about attending five or six different community colleges instead.

    • Serolf_Divad

      And fuck… why would a Teabagger admit to having studied Postmodernism? That'd be like Dennis Kucinich bragging about the courses he took with Milton Friedman.

      • hooray4anything

        Postmodernism is actually a big influence in Conservative thought in that it's helped teach them that you can say anything you want just as long as you yell it repeated on Fox.

    It looks like Oxford now has the same place in the idiot mind as Julliard did for certain rock musicians a while back. Doesn't anyone remember all the heavy metal guitarists that "graduated from Julliard" in the 80's?

    Oh, and "Rhodes Scholar" doesn't mean shit, obviously, since David Vitter and Piyush "Bobbi" Jindal both have this distinction. It's fitting though, since the Rhodes Trust was started to educate the third world "wogs" of the British empire so that they could be educated and sent back to run things the way the empire wanted.

    Finally, we can take solace in knowing Christine O’Donnell will not be elected.

    Eh, don't bet on it, Jack. I mean, I know you're being sardonic (probably), but this just reminds me that there are plenty of wingnuts that actually believe leadership is more about saying things you believe deep down in your black little heart, instead of being the better person and practicing diplomacy. Or that a candidate who reminds you of your local barfly is more qualified to be leader of the free world than the candidate who has worked harder to get where they are than you will in your whole life. Or that someone who promises to stop being the utter cock monkey they've been their entire life if only you'll vote them into office must be telling the truth, because they say go to church, just like you say you go to church.

    Oh I haz a big sad on now.

    What she means is, she WOULD HAVE gone to Oxford, but she had a vision which revealed all the "hand-spanky" and "knobgobbling" going on there between classes and was warned by the Harley Spirit to keep her twinkie in its original unwrapped and undefiled state. You do know that Twinkies last for YEARS so long as the wrapper remains intact. She DOES claim virginity, right? Or is it just the celibate, no spanky shit she is lying about? God, its so hard to keep up with all the mendacity nowadays.
