I’m beginning to think that Christine O’Donnell never really dabbled in witchcraft. I don’t know much about Wicca, but from what I’ve seen in the movies, witches and warlocks aren’t complete idiots like Chrissy O – at least I understand that they can float when tied up and thrown in the water. Christine O’Donnell seems to be sinking faster than a 17th Century Salem teenage girl at a witch ‘trial.’ Her stupidity is astounding.
Consider this exchange during her most recent ‘debate’ with Chris Coons at Widener University Law School;
Coons: “…religious doctrine doesn’t belong in our public schools.”
O’Donnell: “”Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?”
Coons: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,”
O’Donnell: “That’s in the First Amendment…?”
MSNBC noted that the audience gasped in shock at the stunning ignorance of the Republican nominee. I’m sure that those of you who just hearing about this exchange are also trying to catch your breath right about now. I’m still cleaning the coffee from my monitor.
As a note; O’Donnell also failed to identify several amendments of the Constitution that are frequently mentioned as targets of Tea Party repeal efforts, excusing herself because she “didn’t bring [her] Constitution with [her].”
Clearly, O’Donnell’s skills in witchcraft are lacking, otherwise she’d be floating with the other tea-bagged loonies, on pace to lower the collective congressional IQ – and who would have thought that even possible in a Congress populated by the likes of Michelle Bachmann, Dave Vitter, Joe Barton, and Steve King??
But there are others who fail the classic witchcraft litmus test;
Sharon Angle, for example, must be a witch. How else would one explain her lead in the Nevada polls? Angle famously said this;
“People ask me, ‘What are you going to do to develop jobs in your state?’ Well, that’s not my job as a U.S. senator.”
This is coming from a woman who wishes to represent a state that the Bureau of Labor Statistics says had the HIGHEST unemployment in USA according to the most recent data.
Angle must be casting some sort of stupidity spell on the voters in Nevada to be leading in this race.
Joe Miller from Alaska has announced that he would support the repeal of the 17th Amendment, which provides for the direct election of US Senators by the people – the same people Miller is asking to VOTE FOR HIM.
Now this is some amazing warlock stuff right here. He wants Alaskans to VOTE for him to help repeal their right to VOTE for anyone else for senator. AND HE’S LEADING IN THE POLLS!
And Rand Paul thinks that Medicare is just plain wrong. He’s said this:
“The fundamental reason why Medicare is failing is why the Soviet Union failed — socialism doesn’t work,”
Funny, Rand, by his own admission, receives about 50% of his income from Medicare reimbursements. Clearly he doesn’t hate Medicare that much.
Only a very powerful man-witch like Dr. Paul could convince the poor and elderly of Kentucky that it’s Socialism for them to get assistance for costly medical care while he profits greatly from it. But this is exactly what he’s doing.
So, despite Christine O’Donnell’s confession that she dabbled in witchcraft as a youth, I think it’s safe to assume that, like her juiced up resume, she’s full of shit. Just because she may have really really, really liked The Craft it doesn’t qualify her to claim that she actually dabbled in sorcery. There is no other way to explain her lack of political buoyancy, except to acquit her of the charge of practicing the dark arts. Now, if Bill Maher can come up with a clip of her admitting to being a high-priestess in the Church of the Mortally Stupid, I might be inclined to believe her.
