Good grief, the footage coming out of now Delaware Republican Senatorial candidate just gets stranger by the day. From Real Time with Bill Maher, Bill says he's got footage from 22 episodes of Politically Incorrect of Christine O'Donnell and said if she doesn't come on his show he's going to play a clip every week until she does.
The clip he showed tonight is from Politically Incorrect, Oct. 29, 1999:
O'DONNELL: I dabbled into witchcraft, I never joined a coven. But I did. I did. [...]
I didn't join a coven. I didn't join a coven, let's get this straight. [...]
But that's exactly why...because... because I dabbled in 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 was with a witch was on a satanic altar and I didn't know it and there was a little blood there and stuff like that. [...]
We went to a movie and then like had a little midnight picnic on a satanic altar.
Maher wrapped it up with this:
I'm just saying Christine, it's like the hostage crisis. Every week you don't show up, I'm going to throw another body out.
I'm sure Fox News will welcome Christine O'Donnell with open arms if she loses her race for the Senate. And I'm sure her supporters won't care about any of this since she's welcomed Jesus into her heart and all is forgiven and nothing she ever did before matters. That and she's already got that Palin victim card role down pat. They'll just think the evil liberal media is picking on her. This stuff makes me wonder if I should laugh or be terrified that these folks are not being marginalized to the fringes where they belong.
UPDATE: I'm sure this won't come as a surprise to anyone. Christine O'Donnell Cancels Sunday Talk Show Appearances:
Christine O'Donnell is backing away from her plans to appear on the Sunday morning talk shows this weekend.
The Tea Party-backed GOP nominee for Delaware's Senate seat had been scheduled to appear on both CBS' "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday," but canceled both appearances. [...]
The AP reports that O'Donnell "canceled so she could attend previously scheduled events, including a Republican picnic Sunday in Delaware's Sussex County, where she received key support," according to a campaign spokeswoman. The spokeswoman added that O'Donnell looks forward to appearing on the shows in the future.
Sure she does.
