Tea Party Hottie Christine O'Donnell: I Once Dabbled In Witchcraft
"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. . . . " Christine O`Donnell
Delaware Republican Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Christine O`Donnell has a lot of `spalining to do.
Like Sarah Palin, Christine O`Donnell is as cute as a button, but unlike the former governor of Alaska, O`Donnell doesn`t have the IQ of a button. O`Donnell has a functioning brain, but she may have been dropped on her head when she was a baby a couple of times.
Establishment Republican types, like Karl Rove, who have no great love for the Tea Party, are making political hay of O`Donnell`s witchcraft comments. Liberals are of course ecstatic that they have one more kooky quote to use against the Tea Party hottie.
But I don`t think it`s a big deal that O`Donnell once dabbled in witchcraft. Wicca is a respected religion, and the witches that I have known are just regular folks.
What is shocking is O`Donnell`s wacky beliefs about cloning:
In an interview with Fox News commentator Bill O`Reilly O`Donnell stated that she believes that scientists have created mice with fully functioning human brains.
O`REILLY: Everybody knows that scientists have enough knowledge to clone a human being if they wanted to. ..
O`DONNELL: They are - they are doing that here in the United States. American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. So they`re already into this experiment.
Not to mention the many crazy beliefs held by many Tea Party members: Obama is a Muslim; Obama wasn`t born in the United States; Obama should be impeached... How many of these views does O`Donnell accept as the Gospel?
What is it with this infatuation that Republicans have with hot women with fried brains?
