Well, right now, no one is really sure what to make of the revelation that Christine O’Donnell took a trip to the dark side. But, it doesn’t help that those who have helped her along in her political rise also usually like the JC.
The revelation is certain to upset some on the religious right who make up a good part of the Tea Party’s support and who helped to propel O’Donnell to prominence last week with her shock defeat of the Republican leadership’s favoured candidate to contest the Senate seat in Delaware. Via Guardian
According to Guardian, in the video, O’Donnell says: “I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven… I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up.”
“One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s a little blood there and stuff like that… We went to a movie and then had a little midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”
ACTUALLY, this sounds like my kind of political candidate. I mean, who wouldn’t want someone who has experienced the other side? At least she’s well rounded.
Bill Maher agrees and wants her on his show, even if that means showing as many damning videos as he can in an effort to “woo” her.
O’Donnell declined to appear on Fox News, which is regarded as more than sympathetic to the Tea Party, after the video of her appearing on the Politically Incorrect show in 1999 was released by its host, Bill Maher, who now has a semi-satirical chat show on HBO.
Maher has said that he has MUCH more material on Christine O’Donnell that he plans to release until she comes on his show.
Which, c’mon, is kinda awesome, isn’t it?
“I’m just saying, Christine, it’s like a hostage crisis – every week you don’t show up, I’m going to throw another body out,” he said.
