Christine O'Donnell the GOP's candidate for a Delaware Senate seat in 2010 has made headlines for her previous stances on such hot topic issues as mice with the brains of men and masturbation. Often portrayed as a prime example of why the Tea-Party's politics are insane, O'Donnell has come under fire from the media for her past extreme stances.
The news today is that O'Donnell will be running a statewide advertisement claiming that she is, in fact, not a witch. This, rather hilarious, defense is being televised in response to accusations leveled at her from appearing on a 1999 talk show. Where she states that she had "...dabbled into witchcraft." but had never joined any official Wicca organizations. Clip starts around 45 seconds.
Now I don't consider myself to be terribly politically savvy but how is it possible to go from thinking that masturbation will cause God to stop loving you to having "...a little midnight picnic on a satanic altar." is a grand idea?
O'Donnell's opponent Chris Coons has, of course, responded to the ad, mentioning the lack of any kind of policy message.
Oh, divisive partisan politics, how I've missed thee.
