That seems to be the thrust of reports over Christine O’Donnell’s past references to dabbling in witchcraft before she became the Republican nominee for Governor of Delaware. You have to love this country. Who needs an immigration debate when Delaware is debating whether one of its major candidates “is or was ever a practicing witch?” If true, this could prove an advantage with Sarah Palin going to Iowa to campaign this week. Palin has had prior experience with people working in the area since she has been given a protection from witchcraft. This could make for an interesting first meeting between President Palin and Governor O’Donnell. Indeed, Palin could argue that she is the only expected presidential candidate currently able to meet with O’Donnell without fear.
In the meantime, Republicans are asking if O’Donnell’s Democratic opponent Chris Coon is a failed bearded Marxist. If both allegations are true, voters appear to be favoring the alleged former Marxist over the alleged former witch by eleven points.
We previously discussed O’Donnell’s rather expansive definition of adultery. However, the video below has surfaced from appearances that O’Donnell made on Bill Maher’s “Politically Incorrect” show during which O’Donnell says that she dated a witch and went to coven meetings with blood-soaked alters.
“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 altar, 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 altar.”
That quote does allow some wiggle room in that O’Donnell at worse was a “pre-coven witch” or maybe even a “witch-wannabe.” Of course, the important thing is not the date with a witch or the evening spent around an alter with blood. It is that she is currently not a practicing witch and has no immediate plans to enlist the support of the wiccan lobby.
By the way, having a witch as a governor might have its advantages when suddenly the governor of Maryland’s head shrinks during coastal fishing negotiations. Of course, if Gingrich wins, she will have to be more specific about calling for an “eye of Newt” to avoid criminal complications.
With Halloween around the corner, this is going to produce an explosion of Christine O’Donnell costumes.
Update: O’Donnell cancelled a bunch of interviews over the weekend but did speak to a high school group and dismissed the story as basically a case of hanging out with bad kids in high school.

O’Donnell can’t stand the heat–so she’s going to stay out of the kitchen.
Following Palin’s Playbook, O’Donnell Vows ‘I’m Not Going To Do Any More National Media’ (Think Progress, 9/22/2010)
Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell gave a rare — and apparently her last — national TV interview last night to Fox News host Sean Hannity, to whom “so many Republicans” have turned to maintain a “shred of credibility” while refusing to talk to real journalists. In the interview, O’Donnell swore off more national media interviews, saying it was completely “off the table because that’s not going to help me get votes.” “I’m not going to do any more national media,” O’Donnell said, giving the dubious explanation that local reporters “can’t get to me” because national media representatives are clogging her phone lines:
HANNITY: Does that mean — for example, all the talk about well, you’ve got to do this national show, that national show. … Is that off the table for you?
O’DONNELL: It’s off the table because that’s not going to help me get votes. I instead want to go to as many town hall forums, as many candidate forums, as many church picnics that I can fit into my schedule, so that I can meet the voters. […]
I’m not going to do any more national media because that – – this is my focus. Delaware is my focus and the local media is my focus. And it’s frustrating because I’ve let the local media know they’re my priority but our phones are ringing off the hook, that they can’t get to me. So this — it’s actually become an interference with the campaign.
O’Donnell is merely following the path paved by Former Alaksa Gov. Sarah Palin, who advised O’Donnell to “speak through Fox News” and to avoid other national media, because they are merely “seeking ur destruction.” O’Donnell thanked Palin for that “great piece of advice,” saying, “that’s exactly what we’re doing.” Indeed, she abruptly canceled two Sunday show appearances last weekend, and has requested restrictions on media organizations covering her debates, saying, “we’re asking them to not allow media to attend or at least to keep them in the back.” She can also look to other GOP candidates who came up through the tea party movement, such as Rand Paul and Sharron Angle, who have refused to answer tough questions, hurling accusations of media bias whenever a reporter dares to ask them a non-softball question.
Moreover, apparently oblivious to irony, from her safe perch at Fox, O’Donnell attacked her Democratic opponent for not attending a tea party event, accusing him of “ducking the difficult forum” in order to “only go to the friendly forum.”
See … ol’ Merc went porno … they always do
Lose the logic argument, go for the porn … it never fails … boring
However Tootie has given all the Fake Christians a gift … a living breathing witch … gotta love those conservatives … now I wonder what kind of tea she brews ….
