But geez, what a choice: As Matt Lewis writes at AOL’s Politics Daily, “This could be the first race in history that pits someone who dabbled in witchcraft versus someone who dabbled in Marxism:”
That sly come hither stare … it’s witchcraft?
Christine O’Donnell, the new “it” girl for conservatives, continues to provide for interesting commentary. As reported by Think Progress on last night’s episode of “Real Time,” host Bill Maher ran a previously unseen late 1990s clip of O’Donnell from his old show, “Politically Incorrect.” During the clip, O’Donnell discusses having dabbled in witchcraft:
O’DONNELL: I dabbled into witchcraft – I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. … I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do. […]
One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic alter, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that. … We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic alter.
To be fair, O’Donnell is not the only candidate in the race with an interesting background. In a paper he wrote for college, Delaware’s Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate described himself as a “bearded Marxist.“
And hey, look on the bright side! If O’Donnell does by chance win, perhaps she and Michelle Obama can discuss the best ways to “fix our souls.”
