Watch: Christine O'Donnell Ambushed by Canadian Comic — 'You're So Dense That Light Bends Around You'


Christine O'Donnell (who lost) was ambushed by Canadian comic Mary Walsh yesterday at a polling station.

Said Walsh: "I just wanted to say good luck from Canada, and to suggest perhaps you need your own constitution with a first amendment that guarantees the separation between your thought and speech." Adding, "Miss O'Donnell, the Canadian press is saying you're so dense that light bends around you. Do you have any reaction to that?"

You may recall Walsh's character Marg Delahunty, from a similar encounter with Sarah Palin at a book signing.

I wish she'd visit America more often.

  1. OMG! HAAAAAAAAAAAHAHA! Thank you SO much for posting this. At least there is SOME humour from yesterday's dismal results.

  2. We love her up here north of the border! She did a famous interview once where she actually rolled around on our Prime Minister's desk.

  3. Mary Walsh is a national treasure!

  4. Let's hope Ms Walsh turns her microphone next on the homophobic mayor that the City of Toronto just voted in.

  5. Now if only American journalists and/or comics would confront these crazies!

  6. Classic.

  7. Too funny, and O'Donnell clueless on how to respond, just like she is with the real media.

  8. Those calls to Sarah Palin are probably not going to be returned now.

  9. I have never been prouder of being Canadian. Go Mary go.

  10. "22 minutes" is one of those special treats enjoyed by those of us close enough to the Canadian border. Love it!

  11. Too freakin' funny! We need her here to approach people like Michele Bachmann and Sharron Angle.

  12. This would have been funny, but it is actually sad - the comments by Walsh can be easily applied to the American voters today.

  13. Canadian political satire is fantastic. We like it over-the-top and goofy. The Rhino Party, Air Farce, 22 Minutes, "Talking to Americans"... great stuff! You go, Mary!

  14. This is probably quite small-minded of me, but I feel EVER so much better after watching this.

  15. Love Marg - try and find a clip of her ambushing 'W' Bush - it's hilarious!

  16. she's so dense....she didn't understand the joke.

  17. Sad part is that most Americans, and probably O'Donnell, doesn't know what black hole physics are to be able to get that joke.

  18. @Stephen That's probably true and unfortunate. I personally prefer intellectual jokes over low-brow or slapstick, and this one was right on the money.

  19. So funny thank goodness she lost. A well deserved loss

    Posted by: Stephen | Nov 3, 2010 6:25:06 PM

  20. I despise O'Donnell as much as the next rational person, but I sincerely don't believe she heard a word Ms. Walsh was saying.

  21. she had no idea what Ms Walsh was talking about. Do you think Christine knows the first thing about the properties of light and of matter? She thinks mice can be given human brains. Science is NOT her strong suit. The question is--what IS her strong suit?
