Skip to comments.Karl Rove Says Christine O'Donnell Needs to Explain Witchcraft 'Dabbling' to Voters

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.
