Recent activities of the Grand Old Party. Republican Party activist Steve May has continued his inspiring work among the homeless in Arizona, giving them a new start in life as Green Party candidates who, May says, will siphon votes away from the Democratic ticket in November. Congratulations to Christine O'Donnell! The Tea Party-endorsed challenger running in the Republican U.S. Senate contest in Delaware received her undergraduate degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University last week, 17 years after she said she had graduated. Bristol Palin has decided to drop out of the nursing assistant program she enrolled in to concentrate full-time on her career as an unwed teenage mother. This summer she played the part of an unwed teenage mother named Bristol on ABC's The Secret Life of the American Teenager and this past week she received $14,000 for a speech warning young women not to ruin their careers by becoming unwed teenage mothers. From Carl Paladino's friends comes the sad news that he's had to stop e-mailing his entertaining racial jokes and bestiality videos now that he's a candidate in the Republican primary for governor of New York. But the campaign hasn't completely stolen Carl's sense of wacky good fun! Just this weekend he sent voters a mailing impregnated with the odor of rotting garbage to make the point that state government "stinks." God, who has been funding Joe Miller's campaign in Alaska for U.S. Senate, could use some help. As Joe's campaign explained in an invitation to an open house to meet the candidate: "So far the Lord has always provided the money in this grass roots campaign, and this time God is going to use you to provide! . . . Bring Check Book or Credit Card. Chips will be provided."
