A Democratic source unearths video of Christine O'Donnell in 2003,
answering clearly and unequivocally
in the affirmative when asked: "You're going to stop the whole country
from having sex?"
At the time, O'Donnell was with the
Intercollegiate Studies Institute, a conservative group she later sued
for gender discrimination. The exchange, on November 13, 2003, is an
argument between O'Donnell and
Eric Nies, then with the Moment of Hope foundation, about whether to
counsel kids to have safe sex:
NIES: I tell them to be careful.
You have to wear a condom. You have to protect yourself
when you're going to have sex, because they're having it anyway.
NIES: There's nothing that you
or me can do about it.
O'DONNELL: The sad reality is --
yes, there is something you can do about it.
And the sad reality, to tell them slap on a condom is not --
NIES: You're going to stop the
whole country from having sex?
O'DONNELL: Yeah. Yeah!
NIES: You're living on a prayer
if you think that's going to happen.
O'DONNELL: That's not true. I'm
a young woman in my thirties and I remain chaste.
This exchange has been written about before here and there. But this is

has surfaced of it, making it likely that it will get another round of
coverage and some airing
on cable, since it reveals rather clearly how ambitious and zealous her
abstinence crusade really was.
