Christine O’Donnell’s Mockable Ad: ‘I’m You,’ ‘I’m Not a Witch’ (Video)
October 5, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—Former witchcraft dabbler Christine O’Donnell just released her very first TV ad for her Republican senatorial bid. Did she talk about the standard GOP talking points of cutting taxes, runaway government spending and taking our country back from our first black president? Nope. The fringe tea party candidate, who would have also dabbled in the Hare Krishna movement, except for its no meat policy, (she likes meatballs) announced to her Delaware constituents, that she was no longer a practicing teen witch. “I’m not a witch,” said O’Donnell, with slow piano music playing in the background, soothing enough to calm the inhabitants of an insane asylum. Oh, boy. This brings to mind former President Richard Nixon’s famous “I’m not a crook” speech. That declaration didn’t bode well for Nixon. And neither will O’Donnell’s witchcraft ad.
Dressed all in black against a dark background, O’Donnell goes on to tell us, in a creepy somnolent-like delivery, that she’s just an ordinary person. “I’m you,” says O’Donnell.
“I’m not a witch. I’m nothing you heard. I’m you. None of us are perfect. But none of us can be happy with what we see all around us. Politicians who think spending, trading favors and back room deals are the ways to stay in office. I’ll go to Washington and do what you do.”
O’Donnell has launched a fundraising drive to raise $1 million to air her “I’m not a witch” ad statewide.
Her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons should be the first one in line to donate, to ensure the ad is seen on every television in every living room in Delaware.
Coons is currently leading in the polls by 17 points.
