The New York Times scores a rare interview with Christine O'Donnell, which doesn't result in substantive news but does provide some nuggets:
- Her dad, Daniel, "worked a series of small television roles before scoring his signature gig—playing Bozo the Clown." (No further details on that; Larry Harmon was the main guy, but several men played Bozo.)
- She denies fudging her education record: “I was never dishonest about my education. Whether someone put it there to call me a liar, whatever.”
- She is "currently accepting applications for a husband."
- Her lesbian sister, Jennie, is unconcerned about O'Donnell's view that homosexuals have an "identity disorder." Says Jennie: "Blood is thicker than politics."
- O'Donnell says used to be liberal until about age 21, when a friend showed her graphic photos of an abortion. It caused her to rethink all her views and eventually shift rightward.
- Before that shift: “I by no means was a slut. But by no means did I have the moral code I have now.”
