Christine O'Donnell Accuses Piers Morgan Of 'Borderline Sexual Harassment'

Both shameless panderers to attention for its own sake, Christine O'Donnell and Piers Morgan are clearly a match made in heaven. This morning, having slowly walked off Morgan's CNN show two nights ago, O'Donnell was on the Today show to declare, "I wanted to stop that borderline sexual harassment that was going on."

She seemed to be arguing that she had left not because of questions about "gay marriages," but because Morgan was asking her personal questions about whether she had lust in her heart and whether her position had changed on masturbation. She compared it to asking Bill Clinton if he still hung out with Monica Lewinsky or was fond of cigars.

Well, sort of, except Bill Clinton was also running the country for eight years and continues to have major philanthropic influence, so there might be something else to ask him if you happened to have him across the table. Whereas in a campaign season marked by the abdication of reason, Christine O'Donnell ran the most bumbling, content-free campaign for a Senate seat she didn't win, having been nominated by historic accident, and basically served to remind us that nineties-era "culture wars" were just as stupidly reductive as the ones waged today. She and Morgan, who is evidently devoting even more time to the non-incident tonight, may as well troll each other until someone sells a book or gains in the ratings for a night or two.

Here's the thing, I saw this on The Today Show (once again, most reputable source evar) this morning before I left for work, and I kindof agreed with her. They showed tape of him asking her if she masturbates, etc., and I was like - OK I get that she was involved in that thing in the 90s and had some assy views, but I really don't think asking her if she masturbates is cool.

I'm conflicted. It makes me hate Peirce even more. And her even more, and even Ann Curry a bit, by extension, even though she was off today.

This video clip does not show the tape of the questions he was asking her, either.
