Bill Maher’s witch hunt — and the missing context for O’Donnell’s remarks

By Michelle Malkin

September 18, 2010 10:55 PM

Narcissism. Blackmail. Distortion. All wrapped in his trademark smirk of pallor. Yes, it’s tired old liberal “comedian” Bill Maher trying to get Senate GOP primary candidate Christine O’Donnell to come on his show by baiting her with a brief video clip in which she mentions having “dabbled” in “witchcraft” and hung around people who practiced it.

Nonsense. She has nothing to be ashamed of — except, perhaps, for going on Maher’s show so many times. He promises to release 22 more clips until she sits down with him in front of the cameras and brags, in typical TV chauvinist fashion, that he “created her” and that she “owe[s]” him. Ignore the Hollywood attention troll. Focus on the campaign, the voters of Delaware, and the bearded Marxist opponent who’s the real out-of-touch extremist in the race.

Exactly MM, the context is everything, Christine was talking about youthful indiscretion that she learned from, no big deal. Like I have said in other posts, this "scandal" will last till Monday when Odonnell clears it all up, much to the chagrin of RINO's and her detractors here at FR that cannot wait for her campaign to fail

Pursuant to the Witchcraft Act of 1604, aka An Act against Conjuration, Witchcraft and dealing with evil and wicked spirits, burning is no longer the preferred punishment for practitioners of witchcraft.

So please DO NOT burn Christine O'Donnell at the stake.

Much to do about nothing.

She appears to be a sweetheart and I have yet to see anything that she’s stated directly that is bothersome.

To all the uptight establishment RINOs, bug off.

Her response will be revealing of her true character, I expect she will turn it about against her detractors and the whole event will actually help her, in a similar way that Sarah dealt with the writing on the hand incident that the lefties thought would slam her so bad......LOL!

Yes, agreed, we'll have none of that!

Instead, why, we'll ELECT HER, yes, that's what we'll do!

He is such an ugly little man who puts such big, destructive, hedonist ideas into the heads of the young and naive to swallow and turn their lives into a miserable, pathetic, worthless life like his. Misery loves company.

He wears his anger at God on his sleeve and is such an unhappy wretch. Very sad life for someone who God did gift with some talent although he uses it for evil. He will never be happy unless he sees the Light.

I’m making a donation to Christine’s campaign right now. Tired of the smearing and sliming.

Like Sherrod did. it is a edited tape of her discussing a time in her life when she was impressionable and vulnerable.

Just like Sherood she matured RIGHT?????

Typical msm hypocracy, that’s all.
And the idiot Dums think people are to stupid to see through this sleeze ball.

This is great. The dems and the MSM can’t seem to make up their minds who is their #1 enemy? Is it Christine O’Donnell, Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, John Boehner, The Koch Brothers, Chuck Norris, Aslan from Narnia? They’re just going to go all-in and blast their smears willy-nilly.

Bill Maher is a coward. He only picks the easy targets. Got any drawings of Mohammed you care to share, Bill?

“she mentions having “dabbled” in “witchcraft” and hung around people who practiced it.”

In other words she was hanging around DemocRATS!

Exactly. I'm sure Sarah is giving Christine some input as to how best handle all of this and turn it right back at them. Remember what Sarah's 2nd hand message was that shut the MSM up? “Hi Mom”

The answer to something like this is to smile and pay it no mind.

The best response always is optimistic good humor.

The only thing she has to be ashamed of is ever appearing on Maher’s show from the beginning. No one should ever do him the favor of doing his show. He isn’t worth the time, and the people watching it aren’t going to be open to anything you have to say.

Anyone wants to bring this up in any interview, just laugh at them.

Your focus has to be on the marxist. Force the press to deal with the marxist. Every moment talking about what your enemies want to talk about is another moment they’ve avoided talking about the marxist.

Why would she go on his show? He has, what? 3 viewers? And non of them would ever vote for her anyways.

I don’t even think she needs to “clear it up”, everybody who has half a brain knows the score here. Dos anybody really believe that O’Donnell conducts witchcraft?

All the furor is about that video?

Oh, please. So in 1997 she was told to be cute and interesting on a talk show, and she did her job. That disqualifies her from -- what, exactly?

Anyone who has had a life can tell stories about odd people with whom they were once involved.

***...she mentions having “dabbled” in “witchcraft” and hung around people who practiced it.***

So? Many people in their youth explore such things till they find they are false.

Nancy Reagan, Hillary. FDR had psychics and astrologers to counter Hitler’s astrologers.

In my youth I used to have lots of books on such things till I found on my own they weren’t true.
Jean Dixon books.
T Lobsang Rampa books.
Criswell Predicts books.
Tarot books.
Psychic books.
Then one day I got a wild hare and got rid of all of them.
