Skip to comments.Christine O'Donnell in 1999: 'I dabbled into witchcraft'
Posted on 09/18/2010 8:29:08 AM PDT by tlb
Bill Maher -- on whose former show, "Politically Incorrect," O'Donnell appeared repeatedly in the late 1990s -- showed a previously unaired clip from Oct. 29, 1999, on his current HBO program, "Real Time,":
O'DONNELL: I dabbled into witchcraft -- I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. ... 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's little blood there and stuff like that. ... We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar.
Maher said he will show a previously unaired clip every week until O'Donnell appears on his show. "It's like a hostage crisis," Maher said. "Every week you don't show up, I'm going to throw another body out."

Coons “dabbles” in marxism.
I’ll take my chances with the witchcraft.
Except Hillary didn’t just dabble, she actually went for it.
(That was almost too easy...)
Obama jumped into Marxism, didn’t dabble.
I’d bet Hillary did the same but would never be honest enough to admit it.
Didn’t Hillary go up on the White House roof-top and talk with Eleanor Roosevelt?
So, by this standard libs should vote for her too. Good. Settled!
Sounds like it’s time to start posting some of Maher’s “better” moments.....
Obama dabbles in communism...
Hasn’t she already had a guest appearance on his show? He had his opportunity.
Where r the jobs?
Who is working on solutions?
So if anyone is thinking of going on Bill Maher’s show, may this give them pause to reconsider. This is how he treats his guests.
This obviously shows poor judgement, but it was 10 years ago, and she seems to be a committed Christian now.
This sounds like extortion.
So she's familiar with Congress.
Should broaden her appeal to Libs :)
Wow they’ve got their Alinsky Rule 13 Target.
All this personal demonization might cause a tremendous blowback.
They are stooping pretty low to find something on her. They had better watch out they might find some real dirt on a RAT down in that hole.
The “rest of the story” would be of interest. I assume she no longer practices witchcraft. Real Americans love redemption stories. I’ll look forward to reading of it.
Did she inhale?
If someone was to take a microscope and examine my years as a youth and young adult, I’d probably be shunned by most, but that was then.
This is the Left doing what Socialist/Communists do; try to destroy the oppositions by way of character assassination.
This ride’s going to get bumpy.
Now they are discriminating against Witches. What about Napolitano Sebellius and Kagan. If they are not Witches I will eat my hat. But if this is true she is toast.
When you have to bring up stuff like this, you lose the argument.
Face it, we have a b..er..Witch as Speaker of the House.
Witchcraft? No big deal.
Suing over gender discrimination? No big deal.
Having no experience for elected office? No big deal.
Holding OUR candidates to standards we hold THEIRS to...?
post that picture of Pelosi as wicked witch of the west.
SHe may have said it in 1999; my guess is she dabbled when she was 17.
They seem to be concerned with her religion. You may not be far off. A friend, who NEVER talks politics with me, out of the blue mentioned her, masturbation, and those “crazy tea-partiers”... She is hitting some nerves with people, and this friend of mine isn’t even very liberal for a Democrat.
:)Now that’s good.
Exactly! Had O’Donnell become more committed to witchcraft and worshipped on a satanic altar, she would be a Democrat!
Well, when it comes right down to it, the truth is that I was, very briefly, in my foolish youth, a...a...can’t bring myself to say it...this stays right in this room, right?...Okay, I was a Democrat, for like 20 minutes...I was in college, what the hell did I know...watched Bill Maher once, too, but I’m done with that crap, I swear it...
Anyway, Maher is about as Satanic as they come.
All things being equal I wish I’d never heard of O’Donnell, but ANYONE is better than libtard Marxist filth!
I “dabbled” in Scientology...only because I thought it was weird! I held tin cans and answered questions. I didn’t believe any of it but was curious...my friends and I went to see what it was all about...it’s what young people do.
Coons, then 21 years old and about to graduate from Amherst College, chronicled his transformation from a sheltered, conservative-minded college student who had worked for former GOP Delaware Sen. William Roth and had campaigned for Ronald Reagan in 1980 into a cynical young adult who was distrustful of American power and willing to question the American notion of free enterprise.
“[I]t is only too easy to return from Africa glad to be American and smugly thankful for our wealth and freedom,” added Coons. “Instead, Amherst had taught me to question, so in turn I questioned Amherst, and America.”
Big difference. She like Beck has found her way to her knees. Libs never do. OTOH those who have had problems and turned their lives around will be able to relate to her and support her in spite of her past.
Shhh . . . They’re on a roll.
Aha, so that is how she won the election, sourcery. Good, then she can turn Coons into a real racoon and ride easily to victory. Go Christine!
That’s OK, in my younger days, I “dabbled” with a young woman who explored “magick” and other new-age eclectica. Like O’Donnell, she grew up and put away her childish things, which is more than I can say for her bearded Marxist opponent, or the gay Marxist with a “beard” in D.C.
"Witchcraft? Cool, dude".
This is TEN years old! And at the time, she said it was something she previously did...Obama sat for TWENTY years in a racist church...listening to a preacher calling for the destruction of the white folks...Coons supports Obama, and is in his party.
Let Mahr show them every week...free publicity! This way she is in the news every single week, without paying for an ad!
My girlfriend and I dabbled when we were 15 -—oh,, wait, different subject
obama commies dabble into washington...
I'm guessing it was probably *20* years ago, or more. The dabbling in witchcraft, I mean. When she said that on the show in 1999, she was referring to something that had happened much earlier.
Also, a lot of us have "dabbled" in something for a while when we were young and then gotten out of it when we realized it was dumb. It's not like COD was saying she was in favor of witchcraft!
"Tell my staff, I'll be at the White House if they want me."
And Nancy Reagan consulted astrologers...
And didn’t Hilliary channel Elenor Roosevelt?
I thought Liberals like Wiccians. Is he trying to help her win the Democrat vote?
Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist (DE-Sen)
By: Neil Thursday
September 16, 2010
In May 1985 Chris Coons wrote an article for his college newspaper, The Amherst Student, titled Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist.
But Delaware may like the witch story the best....don’t think it is going to harm her in her own state. Thanks Maher!
My vices were drugs and alcohol and they were in my youth. I guessing she was talking about her youth as well.
It certainly wasn’t uncommon for people my age to get into all sorts of weirdness when we were teens and for some that included witchcraft.
One of the whitest kids I knew got into Navaho religious rites for a while.
Maher is a devout practitioner of Onanism.
