"I am fighting two political parties here in Delaware"

That from Christine O’Donnell who is turning heads in her home state and elsewhere:

“The conservative movement was told to curl up in a fetal position and just stay there for the next eight years, thank you very much. Well, how things have changed,” O’Donnell said, to cheers.

“The small elite don’t get us. They call us wacky. They call us wingnuts. We call us, ‘We the people,'” she said to sustained applause. “We’re loud, we’re rowdy, we’re passionate. … It isn’t tame, but boy, it sure is good.”

“Will they attack us? Yes. Will they smear our backgrounds and distort our records? Undoubtedly. Will they lie about us, harass our families, namecall to try to intimidate us? They will. There’s nothing safe about it. But is it worth it?” she said.

“Well, let me ask you. Is freedom worth it?” she asked, as the crowd chanted “Yes.” “Is America worth it?”

“I never had the high-paying job or the company car. It took me over a decade to pay off my student loans. I never had to worry about where to dock my yacht to reduce my taxes,” she said, jabbing at Sen. John Kerry for dodging a six-figure yacht tax in his home state. ‘”And I’ll bet most of you didn’t, either.”

“We’re not trying to take back our country. We are our country,” O’Donnell said, before making a subtle reference to a phrase Obama has been using on the campaign trail. “That’s what’s happening in America today, the grown-ups are taking away the keys.”

“They even want unelected panels of bureaucrats to decide who gets what life-saving medical care and who is just too old, or it’s too expensive to be worth saving,” she said, a nod to the fictional “death panels” that Palin first used to attack the health care bill. “They’ll buy your teenage daughter an abortion but they won’t let her buy a sugary soda in a school’s vending machine.”

“When I talk to people out on the campaign trail in Delaware, I’m hearing frustration, not only with the direction our country is headed but with the anti-Americanism that taints every outlet of the ruling class. Americans want our leaders to defend our values, our culture, our legacy of liberty and our way of life, not apologize,” she said.

“It’s no secret that there’s been a rather unflattering portrait of me painted these days,” she said during the forum. “I am fighting two political parties here in Delaware.”

Is the woman making sense or what?

More power to her.  Literally.
