Posted on 09/19/2010 1:16:35 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Karl Rove, political mastermind for former President Bush, said Sunday that Christine O'Donnell, the Tea Party insurgent who won an upset victory in Delaware for the GOP Senate nomination, "can't simply ignore" the controversy stirred over the disclosure that she "dabbled in witchcraft" and has to find a way to "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 on Fox News Sunday. "And again, she said it on television when she went on the ... the Bill Maher show." Rove was referring to an October 1999 appearance O'Donnell made on Maher's "Politically Incorrect" show where she said," 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'Donnell had been on Maher's show frequently in the 1990s, and Maher has said he is going to show an O'Donnell clip each week until she agrees to appear again.

He needs to explain why he is so fat.
“I was a teenager. I am no longer the same person. I’m a responsible adult with responsible, mature beliefs and principles. Unlike many of my critics.”
Karl Rove needs to explain his relevance.
Shut up Rove, you corporatist hack.
Does Rove want to sabotage her by feeding the brouhaha?
When The Oneness explains his dabbling with cocaine as a yout’, then we’ll talk, Karl.
or those rumors about he and another man.
Shouldn’t Obama explain his Islam “dabbling” to the voters also? Why do the commie ‘RATS always get a free pass on everything? Because we already know that they are a bunch of scumbags anyway so no explanation is needed?
The Byrds had talent, Tokyo Rove doesn’t.
Why not? If Rove can advise Bush to ignore critics of the Iraq war, certainly it should be okay for O'Donnell to ignore critics of the "witchcraft" issue.
Was she ever strung out on a cocaine binge, or convicted of DUI?
To anyone give me crap for this question. I have a lot of respect for the renewed man.
Rove needs to explain why he is an asshat.
Karl needs to get a hobby.
First - I love that song. :)
Second - I want to know if she dabbled enough to put a hex on Rove? I’ll pay for her services. ;)
Mr Rove, when you find yourself in a hole, ancient wisdom suggests you stop digging...
He has put his feet in the sand, hasnt he? Im not impressed AT ALL with his attacks. Just makes me angrier and more against the “establishment”. Oddly at this point other than her have killed someone I think I would vote for her no matter wht, lol. (wish I could vote in Delaware)
BS. She should say she is not going to waste time on such nonsense. Ask me a serious question or I’ll leave.
Well...that makes it official. She should completely ignore the trumped up controversy. If there’s any question about what to do Christine, just do the opposite of what the Rinos advise.
I seriously doubt Karl Rove understands the trouble he is in now. He’s been drop kicked through the goal posts of life ~
Karl Rove = Levi Johnston
Now, it honestly boggles me that someone can be this petty, and dense.
Not even Castle (or Coons) has come after her like he has.
From mastermind to master-baiter in just 10 years.
Rove, for some reason has got it in for O’Donnell.
Like any Christian who repents from a past life, Christine will have no difficulty explaining the witchcraft nonsense. Karl should know that, having been with W for so long.
Perhaps Rove can explain why he dabbles in Rino crap? Rove has lost any respect he ever had.
Obama has not explained why a known terrorist laucnched his senatorial campaign. No big deal.
Obama has not explained why this known terrorist’s wife killed cops. no big deal.
Obama needs to explain why he was part of a racist church for 20 years. no big deal.
Obama needs to explain why he is promting the Muslim faith and abandonning the seperation of church and sate. No big deal.
But if O’Donnell was interested in witchcraft a a kid, now that is an outrage.
Karl Rove is acting like Murkowsky in being a sore loser. He backed Castle and his candidate lost. Now he is going to do what he can to torpedo the O’Donnell campaign to prove himself right at the posible expense of a Senate seat. What a loser.
Did Tokyo Rove ask any questions about HillBeast talking to the dead Elenore Roosevelt. He is a puss, hypocrite.
Umm, she was laughing and purposefully acting over the top on a late night “comedy” show
So what. Remember the “light as a feather, stiff as a board”...and the ouiji board? Young peeps dabble into things they shouldn't. I'm sure NO ONE here has "dabbled" into something they shouldn't have as a youngster.
How about Obama explaining what he considers confusion over his BIRTH CERTIFICATE?! Not once has anyone asked him about it and not once has he attempted to explain it.
Karl Rove needs to go to h*ll.
So Karl Rove and Bill Mahr are on the same team? Probably in more ways than one...
I’m trying to recall if Rove demanded Bush explain his DUI 30 years ago?
Because he is working for Castle.
Karl needs to come out of the DEMS closet.
ABC and NBC Fail to Correct Obama’s ‘Seance’ Gaffe
By Brent Baker (Bio | Archive)

Friday night stories on ABC’s World News and the NBC Nightly News ran a clip of President-elect Barack Obama’s gaffe at his press conference in which he related he had talked to all of the living former Presidents, as I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances. But both newscasts failed to note it was Hillary Clinton, not Nancy Reagan, who reportedly had seances in the White House. ABC’s Jake Tapper called Obama’s comment a lighter moment while NBC’s Lee Cowan described it as the only awkward moment of his first meeting with the press.
FNC’s Jim Angle, however, managed to point out in his 6 PM EST story: It was actually Hillary Clinton who was reported to have engaged in seance-like sessions in which she communed with the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt.
The AP also noted the error. Obama slips in reference to seance by Nancy Reagan announced the headline over a dispatch posted at 5:06 PM EST on Yahoo News. The AP’s Kevin Freking recalled:
In his book, The Choice, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward described how Clinton consulted with a spiritual adviser who led her through imaginary conversations with her personal hero, Eleanor Roosevelt. Newsweek magazine, which was promoting the book, characterized the visits as seances, a term that White House officials quickly tried to squelch
I’ll take a “former part time hobby witch” over an “avowed full time currently practicing communist” ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!
I have never understood Rove’s reputation for being some sort of political genius. I have never been a fan of his and his BS of late only reinforces my dislike for him.
He can just drop from the scene for my money.
Rove is stalking Christine.
A CONSRVATIVE who has actually lived in this country and watched what you RINOs have done
[ He needs to explain why he is so fat. ]
O’Donnell put a fatness curse on him you know.
No she doesn’t, it’s a none issue. Karl Rove needs to explain why he wants Coons to win the election.
Karl Rove needs to explain to the American people why he is such a pompous jackass
I always loved that song till I decided to learn the lyrics....yowza....about as spaced out as you can get....still I love to listen to it anyway, the Byrds version that is.
Perfect line though for this Odonnell witch nonsense.
And as for Karl Rove.....yawn...
