I'm Not a Witch

Politicians addressing their own religiosity is nothing new in this country for sure. President John F. Kennedy had to promise that his public policy would not be unduly influenced by his Roman Catholic faith, which was seen as threatening to the American (read WASP) way of life in the 1960s. More recently, Governor Mitt Romney addressed "the Mormon question" in a much-touted speech in 2008. And in 2010, President Barack Obama continues to fight off rumors that he is Muslim. But surely the ad below from US Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell is the first time in a long time (since Salem Witch trials?) that a politician has had to assert firmly that, "I am not a witch." Have a look for yourself.

Interesting ad as Ms. O'Donnell turns what should have been a negative into a positive.  I saw a comment somewhere that Rush Limbaugh said if Christine O'Donnell is such a loser why are the Democrats spending so much money to defeat her.  It would be a shocking lost to the Democrats if she should somehow win.  She is currently down about 15% so that does not seem to be likely.

Here is her website where this ad is prominently displayed.


Another comment.  Our wonderful editors at America have devoted two post to Christine O'Donnell and one indicated she was a Nazi and one indicated she was a witch.  Wonderful, Catholic behavior but in character with the America website.  Keeping on the tradition of Michael Winters.
