Skip to comments.Christine O'Donnell's Younger Years: Forget Witchcraft, Think Media Godess
Posted on 09/24/2010 3:51:43 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
Bless her heart. Christine O'Donnell has a lot of people angry at her -- Wiccans, Satanists, Bill Maher, and even some Republicans.
No small feat, but reflecting on O'Donnell's history, it's par for the course.
Maher made an appearance on "Hardball With Chris Matthews" Tuesday night to discuss O'Donnell, who made more than 20 appearances on his "Politically Incorrect" show years ago. Over the weekend, O'Donnell, who is the Republican Senate nominee in Delaware, said she made comments like the one about dabbling in witchcraft to help Maher with ratings.
Maher called foul.
"It's funny to me, Chris, because this is the woman who claimed on another one of our 'Politically Incorrect' episodes from the '90s that she would not lie, even in the case of hiding Anne Frank in her attic," Maher told Matthews. "Eddie Izzard confronted her and said, 'Really? If Hitler was at the door and you had Anne Frank in the attic, you wouldn't lie?' She said, 'No. God would find a way.' "
Perhaps, Maher did want ratings, but O'Donnell had her own agenda as a young, firebrand former Catholic-turned-Evangelical Christian pushing her message. She said on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Tuesday night that she viewed such appearances as a ministry and that she was excited back then about her new-found faith.
Some will laugh at her naivete, and likely doubt the veracity of her statement, but I know plenty of people who, in their teens and twenties in the Bible belt, tossed their heavy metal albums into the roaring fireplace and began quoting the Gospel.

What has legs?
Can't say if she is an idiot now, but we know she was an idiot then. Of course, I was quite the idiot in my youth, too. Lucky for me, it wasn't taped and broadcast on television.
this story. It won’t go away. Keeps expanding. Keeps getting air time.
Me I thought I was a Liberal when I was a kid 40 years ago. I have not changed any of my opinions hardly at all since then and now I am a far right extremist? This should tell us something.
So now she would lie to Hitler about Anne Frank being in her attic? I don’t think I ever watched Politically Incorrect, but it sounds like the entire show is devoted to idiocy. Small wonder she never became a “media goddess” with an outlet like that, and questions like that. What this has to do with her run for public office in Delaware still eludes me. It’s just an appalling side show, brought to us courtesy of Carl Rove.
< snickering > (kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy there, dontcha think?)
The left is really afraid she will say no in congress to tax hikes, government rationed healthcare, etc, eh?
I’ve never seen the show either. What this has to do with her run for office is to try to convince people she’s an idiot.
I know plenty who dabbled in witchcraft and more ..but they didnt go on Mahers show saying silly things...that said..all she has to do is please her voters...thats who matters to her. and as greta said just what are qualifications for senate? many in dc are not qualified to be street sweeper. no offense to street sweepers.
Well, then, the several hundred posts in response to my last post are part of that self-fulfilling prophesy, aren’t they? Bull#$@. This story has legs, but it doesn’t get them from Free Republic. Carl Rove’s considerable malice and media savvy, and the ample record of her appearances on that idiotic show have more to do with it.
1. Question marks? How dull wits try to sound honed?
2. Upper-case fourth-row random keys do not constitute profanity.
3. Aw, buzz off. I gotta go pay attention to my eight-year-old. All for now.
I wish conservatives would stay away from Bill Maher’s show. He just uses them as cannon fodder.
My Congressional Representative, Jack Kingston, has gone on the show quite a few times. And I think it weakens him; makes him look like he’s courting the liberal’s favor.
Want to engage in a real debate? Go ahead, but stay away from shows like Maher’s. It’s undignified.
Nice. Add a personal attack to violation of the no profanity rule. Roll on!
That old black magic has me in its spell,So hmmmm, who is it that is practicing witchcraft. With Obama sending tingles into people like Matthews one has to wonder.
that old black magic that you weave so well.
Those icy fingers up and down my spine
That same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine.
The same old tingle that I feel inside,
Then stop posting it.
I wonder what my excuse will be when she wins it going away... ?
Hmmmmm.... I didn't think of that....
