Norah O'Donnell: Have Republicans 'Lost Their Cojones?'

January 21st, 2009 4:22 PM

Norah O'Donnell just mocked the manhood of the Senate Republicans. The MSNBC host was discussing with Tucker Carlson how—despite making noises about wanting more financial disclosure about donations to Bill Clinton's foundation—Republicans have announced their intention to vote for Hillary's confirmation as Secretary of State nonetheless.

O'Donnell wondered out loud whether the Republicans "have kind of lost their cojones."

NORAH O'DONNELL: I want to play what Senator Cornyn said today about these concerns about Hillary Clinton, and her husband still able to take money into his foundation.  Let's listen.

JOHN CORNYN: I was encouraged by my conversation with Senator Clinton yesterday in the Rotunda following the inaugural ceremonies.  She said that she would be open to a requirement that is an across-the-board disclosure requirement, that isn't just her and the Clinton Foundation.

O'DONNELL: So they want more information; they want instant disclosure, essentially, not the disclosure at the end of the year.  If this is a serious issue--which seems like a serious issue, why then two seconds later says "but I'm still going to vote for her.  I mean, have they kind of lost their cojones, the Republicans?

CARLSON:  Oh, kind of?  Of course!
