More On Christine O'Donnell, Witchcraft Dabbler.

The latest fresh face of the Tea Party.

From Talkingpointsmemo:
Eleven years ago a boisterous Christine O'Donnell confessed to Bill Maher and his ABC audience that she'd dated a witch, "dabbled into witchcraft" and even went on a midnight date involving blood on an altar.

And now a thought experiment: Imagine the uproar if there was a video clip of, say, Michelle Obama declaring that she'd "dabbled in witchcraft" and had gone on a date where there was a satanic altar with some blood on it.

Fox "News" would never ever stop talking it. The Southern Baptist Convention and the American Family Association would never ever stop talking about it. Ever.

What if there were a video tape of Nancy Pelosi declaring the same? Or of Hilary Clinton?

We won't hold our breath waiting on the silence from the right-wing/corporate media to mention O'Donnell's witchy-past.

Hillary Clinton Held Seances In The White House
Should I link to more videos of Fox "News" reporting on Christine O'Donnell "dabbled in witchcraft" or will you admit you were wrong?
O'Donnell should explain 'dabbling' in witchcraft!

HTTT, Hillary Clinton immediately said the seance meant nothing to her (it was, admittedly, a pretty silly thing to do). And I might point out, conservatives use morality to tell people what to do, while liberals use morality as the justification for helping less fortunate people.

Nancy Reagan actually used an astrologer to influence her husband's schedule. But I guess that's OK with you, since Reagan could do no wrong (besides breaking the law and saddling us with a huge new level of debt while building up the military).
