GOP Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell Is Something Which Rhymes with “Bitch”

Christine O’Donnell appears to be following Sarah Palin’s path in avoiding the media and has canceled her scheduled appearances on Face the Nation and Fox News Sunday. When the GOP propagandists at Fox are too much for a Republican candidate they really must realize they are not ready for prime time (or in this case, Sunday morning).

Unfortunately for O’Donnell, Bill Maher has a collection of  videos from previous appearances on his show, including the one above in which she discussed how she “dabbled in witchcraft.” Maher threatened to continue to show these videos unless she appears on his show. “I’m just saying, Christine, it’s like a hostage crisis,” he said, “every week you don’t show up, I’m going to throw another body out.” Besides exposing her interest in witchcraft, he might delve further into her belief in young-earth creationsim.

Maher also took credit for creating O’Donnell:

Last night, Real Time aired its first show of the current season. Maher began by mocking O’Donnell, calling her “an uemployed, anti-masturbation activist and a close friend of mine.” “I created her,” Maher told the audience, turning to the camera and stating, “You owe me Christine O’Donnell.” Maher said that he has great fondness for O’Donnell, adding, “She does not have a mean bone in her body, or any other bone in her body.”

    WITCHES ARE NOT SATANISTS. We don’t believe in Satan, or the Judeo-Christian God. Even Satanists know this – to the point where no real Satanist (and there are a few) would self-describe as a witch in the first place.
    So the only conclusion is that O’Donnell was making shit up and did so in a way that, even a decade ago, comprised a bigoted and xenophobic attack on Wiccans. There are over 800,000 Wiccans in the U.S. with thousands of them fighting and even dying for their country. We deserve the respect accorded to any other religion.
    Garance Franke-Ruta gets it right and refuses to pander to easy religious bigotry just to bash O’Donnell. Would that some other, supposedly progressive, writers had the same intellect and restraint.
