Teen Witch O’Donnell to Cast Spell: Turn Rove ‘Into a Newt’

September 20, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—Christine O’Donnell’s past dalliances with witchcraft continued to remain at the forefront of the Sunday news talk, after the fringe tea party candidate for the U.S. Senate abruptly canceled scheduled appearances on CBS and Fox News. Former Bush political operative Karl Rove, called on O’Donnell to “explain it.” And Republican strategist Ed Rollins, said O’Donnell needs to overcome her political baggage and get her “ship righted.” But O’Donnell wasn’t listening, preferring instead to make light of the witchcraft controversy, joking about turning Karl Rove into a froggie “Newt” supporter.

O’Donnell’s past dabbling into witchcraft came to light, when Bill Maher played a 1999 clip of the extremist teapartier appearing on his show “Politically Incorrect.”

“I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. … One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it.”

O’Donell described the date, as a “midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”

During a campaign appearance at a Delaware picnic on Sunday, the Associated Press reports O’Donnell brushed off her past “witchcraft,” by blaming it on unsavory high school friendships.

And on Monday, O’Donnell took to her Twitter account to make a joke about her “I dabbled into witchcraft” comment.

“I did comment that if I were a witch, Rove would be a supporter. I would have turned him into a “Newt”, because Gingrich says we win.”

O’Donnell also dubbed the witchcraft remarks and other bizarre statements made by the anti-masturbation advocate, as “vain distractions.”

“We’ll win this race by focusing on issues that matter to the people of Delaware, not vain distractions,” tweeted O’Donnell on Monday.

But Fox News pundit Karl Rove, who criticized O’Donnell, as “nutty” and unelectable after she shocked the political world by defeating Republican establishment candidate Rep. Mike Castle (DE) in the Delaware primary, wants her to provide voters with a reasonable explanation.

During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Rove said O’Donnell “can’t simply ignore” the controversy, adding she must “explain it and put it in its most sympathetic light and move on.”

“In southern Delaware, where there are a lot of church-going people, they’re probably going to want to know what was that all about,” Rove said. “And again, she said it on television when she went on the … the Bill Maher show.”

O’Donnell’s response to Rove’s initial criticism that she is “nutty” and has a “checkered” financial past, was to declare his attacks as “unfactual.” Yes, that’s a made-up Palin-esque word.

Rove says, the former self-described witchcraft dabbler O’Donnell, can’t say “These are unfactual and not true and … go to my website and ignore them.”

Meanwhile, Rove would be advised to check for warts.

    O’Donnell has no idea what witchcraft is. Wicca is not Satanism; Ford is not Chrysler (and it’s not even Fiat). Wicca and Satanism are both religions, as is Catholicism and Lutheranism, and Methodism; but they are none of them the same as any other.

    Rove doesn’t need to check for warts; the GOP has quite a few. One of them is names O’Donnell.

    Let’s see, Old Man Dotes….”O’Donnell has no idea what witchcraft is.” So, she wasn’t actually involved in anything, other than a young person dating someone who was.

    Most people I know think a date is going to a dinner and a movie.

    Sex on a Satanic altar….not so much. And don’t give me this innocent, I didn’t know what I was doing and it was just a midnight picnic.”

    If some guy invited me out for a picnic, and it was at night, in the woods, on what looked like an altar, I would have run away screaming. Seriously…this is crazy.

    I can only imagine how the tea party and the republicans would be spinning this if she was a democrat.

    Godless candidate admits to satan worship….comes to mind.
