O'Donnell Lies About Her Education, Makes For Good Video Parodies


Number of schools Christine O’Donnell said she attended which never heard of her: Two. Also, two video parodies of her pronouncements on masturbation and pregnancy.

It’s been about thirty seconds since we’ve heard a new revelation about Christine O’Donnell — this time, the rather germane topic of whether she tells the truth about herself and her qualifications.

First, there was the fact that she listed herself as having attended Oxford on her LinkedIn profile, despite having simply taken a class on Postmodernism (alert the culture warriors!) through a program that rented space at Oxford. Then she said she attended Claremont Graduate University, when in fact there was no record of her there — though she did win a fellowship with a think tank also named Claremont, which is not affiliated with the university.

Will her base care? Probably not. Actual educations are for elitists.

Meanwhile, Bill Maher, cleverly riding the O’Donnell train for as long as it will take him, taped the above parody to promote his current show. Really, what would the nineties be without O.J. Simpson jokes?

And, in case you missed it, here’s Saturday Night Life‘s take.
