Tokyo Rove Trying To Help Democrats Demands Witchcraft Explanation From O’Donnell

Karl Rove former top Bush aide is demanding that the conservative Republican explain her witchcraft comment from eleven years ago to voters.

Karl Rove, political mastermind for former President George W. 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.


Christine O'Donnell Responds To Witchcraft Comments


Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is making light of comments she made more than a decade ago about having dabbled in witchcraft when she was in high school.

"How many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school?" she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.
"There's been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now," O'Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.

Rove, the former GOP strategist and adviser to President George W. Bush, has suggested that O'Donnell's win in last week's GOP primary cost Republicans a chance to retake the Senate seat long held by Democrat Joe Biden before he was elected vice president.

O'Donnell, a conservative Christian activist, rode a surging tide of tea party activism to an upset victory over GOP moderate Michael Castle, Delaware's longtime congressman and former two-term governor. She faces Democratic county executive Chris Coons in November.

O'Donnell's comments about witchcraft were made during a 1999 taping of comedian Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect" show.

Russ Murphy, executive director of the 9-12 Delaware Patriots, a group that joined in the tea party effort to propel O'Donnell to Tuesday's primary victory, said the focus on her comments about witchcraft was just another attempt by pundits and political opponents to discredit her.

Christine O'Donnell: No Witchcraft Since High School -- If so, Rove Would be a Supporter

Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell responded to old clips that surfaced over the weekend where she said she had once "dabbled in witchcraft," clarifying at a GOP picnic in Delaware Sunday, "I was in high school, how many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school? But no, There's been no witchcraft since, if there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter."

The jab at the former President George W. Bush senior adviser came after Rove had cast doubt on her ability to carry the state for the GOP and said there are too many questions about her past.

The nominee showed up at the picnic in a key county that helped secure her GOP Tuesday primary upset, despite canceling previously scheduled appearances on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation." Her campaign backed out of the talk show interviews, saying she needed to get back to Delaware and had a scheduling conflict, including attending church and then the afternoon picnic.

She was greeted with a raucous applause at the annual Sussex County GOP picnic with chants of "yes we can" and "yes we will!"

Many in the crowd kept saying "get over it," to the media when she clarified her original witchcraft comments, which included her giving details about a date she had with a witch. The 1999 tape from "Politically Incorrect" first surfaced Friday when Bill Maher aired it on "Real Time with Bill Maher," saying he would keep airing clips until she appeared on his show.

Local Republicans seemed un-phased by the latest clip, which followed other television interviews that surfaced where O'Donnell talked about such issues as sex and condoms on MTV and to Phil Donahue.


Wild Thing's comment........

Karl Rove gets a smack down from O’Donnell:

“How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school?” she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.”
“There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now,” O’Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.”

So we are on a witch hunt for something a girl did in high school, almost 27 years ago? Good night! This is scraping off fossilized dirt.

I would never have anything to do with satanic anything. But as she said this was many years ago and it was not something she even stayed with. I understand she is now a Christian and didn’t melt when baptized. heh heh

In the Bible, Paul took great joy in watching Christians being stoned to death, then later went on to spread Christianity to the world. Christine’s dabbling in witchcraft as a teenager pales in comparison. Considering what she is now, a Christian conservative, I find her story of redemption inspiring.

I would imagine that most liberals got into far worse trouble at that age, and many of them never get out of it.

Let's see which is worse, that she dabbled in witchcraft in her youth or that she appeared with Bill Maher, I would say it is a toss up.

And what about all the Progressives, pure communists, others as well that not only have been dabbling in Marxism but are solid Marxist's in our government.

Then we also have Obama dabbling in cocaine.... or the AP article on Biden dabbling in plagiarism.... or the AP article on Hillary Clinton dabbling in talking with the dead. And Hillary, when a grown up, had seances in the WH.

CNN: Book says Hillary talks to dead (Sec State and NY Senator dabbles in seances)

First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton held imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi as a therapeutic release, according to a new book written by Bob Woodward, says a report in Sunday's edition of The Chicago Sun-Times...Woodward says the adviser was Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, which he describes as a group that studies the psychic experience and altered and expanded consciousness.

Honestly I really think Tokyo Rove clearly has some kind of personal problem here.

Maybe if O’Donnell were into killing babies via abortion or “dabbled” in Marxism like her opponent Chris Coons, she’d be Rove’s ideal RINO.

Rove said there were a lot of church going people who are going to want to know what that's about. It's simple. It's about a young high school girl who didn't know any better dabbling in something she shouldn't have.

If there are any church going people that are having a hard time dealing with that, I want to remind them to read the Book of Acts in the New Testament: Read of the conversion of the Apostle Paul. Prior to his conversion, Paul was a religious leader who gave the go-ahead for the stoning and subsequent killing of the first Christian martyr, Stephen. When Paul became a Christian, he was on his way to Damascus to imprison and kill Christians. Before anybody wants to cast stones at a high school girl for what she may have done out of ignorance, they had first better read the story of the Apostle Paul.

He sure does. Rove is a self-serving Asshole. He should look at the candidate he supported and the one the people supported. Isn't that his job to find what the people WILL support. NO its personeal with him. He considers himself god and no one should question his judgement. So Karl is offended that they didn't pick his man.

Man up karl you guy was ball less just like you. I don't know if it take a real genius to sell a candidate, the candidate is the actual salesman not his handler.

So now Rove is doing the Democrat job for them. what a class less jerk.

I got it wrong. Karl Rove is a progressive like every progressive on the left. The candidaate that won was a Conservative, an American, not a globalist. He is on tear to destroy Christine Odonnell with made up charges he doesn't care what the result is as long as she doesn't win, to keep as many conservatives out of congress as possible.

It dawned on me, on the Oreilly show, rove was asked some good questions, and he could have hammered obama but he didn't he blew off the questions as irrelavent. Why? He's a republican right.

This goes for the RNC too, they too are in to this progressive thing too. They millions to that Scuzza fava babe, why she supported the left's agenda, some republican, when the real Conservative rose to the top they dumped him. The democrat won.

all this fits into their agenda. Amnesty, supporters, Bush, McCain, Graham, Rove and almost all of the democrats are/were in favor of Amnesty.

Publicly the RNC was embarrassed into supporting Odonnell, that was the only reason for the 40,000 dollars. A token compared to what Scuzzafave got.

The reason for all this has been bothersome, Rove finally drove it home. They are Globalists. They don't give a rats ass about the United States only what they can get from the biggest deal ever.
The last 18 months have been a dream for Republican they didn't have to vote on anything it would pass as it did. In the seanate they got the usual suspects Snowe, Collins and now Brown to vote for Health Care. This protected McCain for Re election he could run as a conservative and even used Palin to help him.

We have been had. Rove should have shut his punk mouth and no body would have been the wiser, but he's a selfish little jerk.

These progressives are out for themselves and in both parties and finally the people are waking up to this.

Yes Rove is a globalist and I am sure he is wealthy off lobbyists bribes. I wish Rove would just retire.

You observe people excited to be a part of the Tea Party movement. No one is excited to say they are a Republican. Rove is an example why.
