I was interested in the juxtaposition below from Christine O’Donnell’s multimedia page.  (Christine is the fundamentally unqualified Palin Tea Party knockoff (if that’s not an oxymoron) running for Senate today in Delaware’s GOP primary.

The second photo is the only small-group photo with African-Americans on Christine’s multimedia page.

That picture is labeled “Christine in the Community.”  (Yes, as of now, the thumbnail is sideways and the picture displays sideways.)  Do you imagine these girls, or their parents, have any idea they’ve been so honored?
