For those who don't follow the daily adventures of right-wing Republican extremists, let me back up just a little to explain: O'Donnell, a candidate so wrong-headed that even Karl Rove has expressed concern, has released a new ad spot — which you'll find at the end of this post — disturbingly titled "I'm Not a Witch, I'm You." That's because Bill Maher keeps running a clip of her from one of his '90s shows in which an '80s-haired O'Donnell talked about having a midnight picnic on a Satanic altar.
Of course, that was a long time ago. Or as O'Donnell laughingly elaborated in a recent Christian Science Monitor article, “How many of you did not hang out with questionable folks in high school?” (You can go to Herobuilders.com, by the way, to pick up your very own O'Donnell witch doll.)
Cue Sharron Angle, the GOP candidate who encourages rape victims not to have abortions because "two wrongs don't make a right," especially when they can instead "turn a lemon situation into lemonade."
Tuesday, Nevada Tea Party Chairman Syd James resigned after the Las Vegas Sun's Jon Ralston reported on a taped conversation with Angle in which, among other things, she named her anticipated conspirators in the upcoming GOP revolution. "There may be five or six of us… maybe Joe Miller, Ken Buck, Christine O’Donnell."
Why five OR six? Hard to say, but my guess is that O'Donnell's "familiar" has yet to sign on.
