O’Donnell Defends Walkout

Former Delaware Senate candidate and Tea Party darling Christine O’Donnell stormed off the set of CNN on Wednesday after Piers Morgan tried to ask her about her views on sexual abstinence and gay marriage. “I'm not talking about policies. I’m not running for office,” O’Donnell said. “Ask Michele Bachmann what she thinks.” O’Donnell insisted she only wanted to talk about the Tea Party principles outlined in her new book, Troublemaker. After some hostile back and forth banter, O'Donnell cut the interview short, saying that she was there "not to endure a rude talk-show host, but to talk to you about my book and the issues I address in my book.” She has since told Fox News that wasn't bothered by the gay marriage questions, but rather by a "a decidedy inappropriate line of qestions leading up to that," and his insistance on "talking about sex."
