Okay, maybe Delaware Senatorial Republican hopeful Christine O’Donnell isn’t a witch, and she didn’t turn me into a newt. But by her own admission, she has dabbled in the occult. Last night, on Bill Maher’s HBO show “Real Time,” the host showed a clip from his old show, “Politically Incorrect,” in which O’Donnell admitted that she “dabbled in witchcraft” and once had a date on a “satanic altar.” Here’s a quote from her October 29, 1999 appearance:
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 was a little blood there and stuff like that.
We went to a movie and then had a little picnic on a satanic altar.
And here’s the clip:
I wonder what her Christian fundamentalist friends will have to say about her late-1990s escapades. You know, the same ones who love to ban Halloween celebrations at their local schools and call for the banning and/or burning of Harry Potter books.
Or is forgiveness only for those with an “R” by their name?
