As more DADT repeal news trickles into our breaking thread, let’s take a break.

Look at the stupid – and  how it burns like the white-hot fire of the sun in the form of failed Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. (The Hill via TPM):

Christine O’Donnell on Tuesday compared the “tragedy” of extending unemployment benefits to Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards.

“Today marks a lot of tragedy,” O’Donnell, who lost her recent bid for a Delaware Senate seat despite strong backing from the Tea Party, said Tuesday night during an appearance in Virginia.

“Tragedy comes in threes,” O’Donnell said. “Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama’s announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits.”
