Skip to comments.Christine O'Donnell's Career, RIP (Power Line)
Posted on 09/18/2010 2:18:41 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Christine O'Donnell's campaign went off the rails today when Bill Maher announced that he has previously-unseen clips of O'Donnell from the late 1990s when she appeared several times on his show. In one clip, she says that she once "dabbled into witchcraft."
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.

Man, I never thought I would see the day when Powerline would relish the thought of a Conservative losing to Democrat in a Senate race. They really were so far up Rep. Mike Castle’s butt, they can’t see daylight.
Powerline’s Credibility, RIP
Interesting, I didn't realize Powerline was a liberal republican site, I'll know to stay away from now on.
Wow, a teenage girl did something stupid.
This is earth shattering news. lol
woopie who really cares what she did as a youth? We have a dems who are nothing but evil in charge guess she saw her way past being a liberal and went conservative it happens as one ages and gets smarter.
On message Christine, on message. Don’t get sidetracked. Just hammer the message every hour of every day. People don’t care what you said or did 11 years ago, but they do care about their jobs, their livelihoods and in being able to keep the homes they live in.
LOL, Odonnel does crazy kid stuff but Coons does crazy adult stuff, like being a Marxist, and Powerline thinks Christine’s career is over. This so called scandal is completely ridiculous and will amount to nothing, more Powerline buffoonery.
More like RINO’s RIP.
I don’t care if she dated Dracula!
It’s fascinating to me that a so-called comedian spends so much time trying to destroy politicians he hates. What’s that about?
Anyone remembering Hillary Clinton "channeling the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt"?
Democrats taught America that candidates don't need to be vetted...and given the primary election victory of the likes of Rangel and Obama's black liberation theology and socialist background, there is nothing one can do to disqualify one for public office...even if they had to sacrificing children on that altar...she wouldn't be able to catch up to all the babies murdered by progressives.
Powerline Blog = RINO Fantasyland
Wait, how or why would she even have been on Maher’s show in 1999, and which show was it?
So she knows Hillary, big deal.
Hardly. With the mention of blood she just secured all the Vampire Diaries voters.
“Previously unseen” would cover quite a lot of Maher’s work over the years.
I guess hanging out with Marxists and “weathermen” is no big deal...How many police stations did that coven blow up?
The formerly well-respected Powerline just jumped the shark - and missed....
She’ll win precisely because she’s human and flawed.
Maher is so full of himself.
That doesn't speak well of her being an able spokesman for the cause.
Gee, I don’t recall Ted Kennedy’s “youthful indiscretions” dooming his career as a senator, although fortunately he was never able to capture the presidency.
I know a girl who did “Goth” stuff in high school. Black lipsticks, piercings, the works. Her and some other kids were suspended for drawing pentagrams and setting fire to something on campus. Guess what? She got over it. She got a law degree from Pepperdine, was a legislative liason for Family Research Council and is planning on a run for Congress in 2012. Democrats and “neocon” losers like Powerline will look pretty damn foolish if they take this tack vs. O’Donnell. After all, she did this stuff well before Chris Coons wrote his “bearded Marxist” stuff. If Christine’s goth dabblings are fair game, so is Coons youthful mistakes.
The point is, candidates need to be vetted. Before you put your muscle and movement behind somebody, it’s wise to first check whether or not they have a screw loose.
Powerline has always been a squishy web site. Their unmistakable crush on Pawlenty and virtually every other “moderate” and their continual outright hatred of Palin and her legions has sent me packing. Powerline os three guys; one is a RINO doofus, one is a squishy conservative, and one of them is a nonentity. I do not pay enough attention to tell which is which.
Because Mark Levin turned over the rock under which they blog, and they are furious about being exposed as the RINO losers they are.
As long as she votes in a conservative manner and properly represents her constituents, I could care less about her ability to be a “spokesman for the cause”.
That is the real story here, the elitist pubbies are not concerned that she is unelectable, they WANT her to lose and proof will be their long faces on election day when she wins. What a bright light has been shined on the GOP this election, let us never forget that these creeps prefer a self proclaimed Marxist over a conservative simply because the conservative stepped on their precious toes.
Poor babies, boo effin hoo.
It said late 90’s, so she would have been close to 30
These anonymous cowardly attackers don't have the courage to even use their real names, and the voters are supposed to care what they write?
Christine O'Donnell will be a fine Senator, and to hell with her detractors, named or unnamed.
Powerline must think it is alright to be a Communist.
Time for everyone to pick a side. Best hand takes all.
Powerline picks Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer and the RINO establishment.
Meanwhile over at Christine O’Donnell’s campaign website:
Someone is awfully afraid and me thinks it is more than just one politician.
The interview was in the late 90s. He visit to a coven happened years before that.
Or maybe starting your career in the home of a guy who bombed the Pentagon and is still proud about it?
I am shocked at their apparent vitriol and their desire to prove their illicit predictions.
I am considering tossing the app and links to their once intelligent blog into the trash.
These libertines have no concept how Christians think.
This is all about distracting attention away from her marxist opponent.
I *almost* feel sorry for the RINOs. They pointed out she is (allegedly) unelectable. We don’t care. They pointed out she (allegedly) has financial issues. We don’t care. Now they point out that 11 years ago she claimed to once (as in, even more than 11 years ago) dabbled in witchcraft. Guess what — we still don’t care!
By their lights she never could have been nominated.
RINOs should join Rats so we have one unified enemy to defeat.
Was she ever responsible for drowning anyone?
There is only ONE choice left, her or a Communist.
