O’Donnell Doesn’t Have A Prayer

I think O'Donnell may have put the final nail in the coffin that is her Senate campaign.  With this:

David Brody: How do you see God’s role in all of this because you’ve had some ups and you’ve had some downs. Where is God in all of this? How do you see all of that?

Christine O’Donnell: God is the reason that I’m running. If I didn’t believe that there were a cause greater than myself worth fighting for, if I didn’t believe that it takes a complete dying of self to make things right in this Election cycle I would not be running and when you die to yourself you rely on a power greater than yourself so prayer is what’s gotten us all through. The day that we saw a spike in the polls was a day that some people had a prayer meeting for me that morning for this campaign so I believe that prayer plays a direct role in this campaign and I always ask please pray for the campaign; please pray for our staff; please pray specifically that the eyes of the voters be opened.

I think it is fine for politicians to invoke their faith.  It's fine if their belief in God is what is causing them to run for office.  That's all fine by me.

But O'Donnell is saying – literally and unequivocally – that God created a spike in the polls the other day.

Um, really?

What does that mean if she loses?  That people didn't pray hard enough?

UPDATE —  Also Chris Coons latest ad really makes O'Donnell look, well, kinda nutty:
