Evidence that Christine O’Donnell (R-DE) Is Actually a Witch (from least to most convincing):
3. She admitted it: "I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven, but I did it. I was a witch… I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up."
2. While unsuccessfully running for U.S. Senate in 2010, she ran ad assuring voters that “I am not a witch.” A witch move if there ever was one.
1. The most damning evidence: the possibility that O’Donnell might run again is “keeping other GOP candidates from stepping forward as the campaign draws close.” She’s keeping people out of the race despite being the same Christine O’Donnell who said lost her last election by 17%. Witchcraft!

2010 called, wanted its Tea Party candidate back. (OH GOD SHE’S MAKING A COMEBACK)

Bring it on, Karl baby. Bring it on, doughboy. Bring on your little whiteboard.
Leading conservative Mark Levin on fellow leading conservative Karl Rove. The remark is emblematic of the civil war brewing in the GOP: On the one side are pragmatists like Rove, who believe the Republican Party needs to nominate more moderate candidates in order to win elections; on the other side are idealists like Levin, who would rather see radical right-wingers lose elections than moderate Republicans win ‘em. The Tea Party contingent of the GOP is outraged at Rove’s newly-unveiled Conservative Victory Project, which seeks to intervene in Republican primaries to make sure that would-be Todd Akins don’t wind up with the nomination. source

If 2010 was the year the Tea Party cost the GOP several winnable seats, then 2012 could be the year Republicans’ own candidates cost them control of the Senate.
The Atlantic’s Josh Kraushaar • Commenting on the slew of weak GOP candidates running for the Senate this year. Kraushaar makes a subtle but important distinction between now and 2010, when Republicans lost several winnable Senate seats by nominating weak candidates (here are two examples). In 2010, many of the candidates in question were insurgent Tea Party types who—to the chagrin of party elites—ran against establishment Republicans in the primaries and only gathered reluctant, late support from the party. This year, however, it’s the establishment’s own hand-picked candidates who are underperforming in polls. The first candidate profiled in the piece, 31-year-old Josh Mandel, is a good case study of why being young and sharp doesn’t necessarily translate to political skill. A refreshing read for election buffs tired of presidential coverage. source (viafollow)

I want to apologize for being so late, I know that’s not respectful of your time, so please accept my apology. We started out at about five o’clock in the morning at Fox and Friends and we’ve gone nonstop until the final stop at CNN a few minutes ago.
Christine O’Donnell • Talking to the Women’s National Republican Club in NYC on Wednesday night — a meeting she had apparently double-booked with the taping of “Piers Morgan Tonight” — you know, the one she walked out on after being asked a question about gay marriage. Sounds like someone made up a mini-controversy in an effort to get out of something. source (viafollow)

Welcome back, Christine! Piers Morgan asked Christine O’Donnell about gay marriage, and she wouldn’t discuss the topic because it wasn’t relevant to her book. She’s gonna talk about what she wants to talk about, and that ain’t gay marriage. “We turned down another interview,” she says. Hey Piers, ignore the comments about you being rude. You’re always charming in our book. Christine O’Donnell, meanwhile, is now on the same level as Carrie Prejeansource

And the ball continues to roll: Earlier this year, a spat of polls showed, for the first time, majority support for same-sex marriage. Last weekend, New York state passed the Marriage Equality Act, granting equal marriage rights to all New Yorkers. Now, thirteen US Senators have filmed an “It Gets Better” video. When you think about the political prospects for gay rights even five years ago, this is kind of astounding — these thirteen individuals (all Democrats; Republicans apparently weren’t asked to participate) are amongst the most powerful people in the most powerful country in the world. Much respect to Senator Chris Coons for posting this; Coons, you’ll recall, was the 2010 candidate everybody wrote off until the Republicans nominated Christine O’Donnell to run against him. So, in a weird way, we have O’Donnell to thank for this video. Thanks, Christine! (via gaywrites, thegayrepublican) source

I have faith that our supporters and the general public will see right through these thug tactics. This is simply an Establishment trick to stop the anti-establishment Tea Party movement in its tracks.
Christine O’Donnell • Regarding reports that the FBI is investigating her for election fraud. Protip: Have a second career besides being a candidate so you can ensure that you aren’t spending campaign donations on rent and other expenses. It’s wasteful, Christine. We like Wonkette’s take on the matter: “Isn’t it strange how a person who has earned no income over the past half-decade and yet is not living on the streets could be charged with any kind of financial fraud? Same old lamestream FBI bullshit.” True ‘nuff. source (viafollow)

I want to congratulate Conan O’Brien and his crew. They’re back on television tonight. I don’t know when… son of a bitch! They’re on the same time as me. Now I’ll never be able to watch me.
Jon Stewart • Making a hilarious but well-placed commendation of Conan O’Brien’s return to late night on last night’s “The Daily Show.” Letterman, George Lopez and Craig Ferguson also made some pretty good send-offs to the returning late-night host. Note that none of those guys are on NBC. Just saying. (On a side note, Leno’s getting fellow pariah Christine O’Donnell later this week. Fitting?) source (viafollow)

Two key Tea Party races end just like everyone expected

  • yes Marco Rubio will be Florida’s next Senator – and like everyone thought, Charlie Crist and Kendrick Meek split the vote.
  • no Christine O’Donnell didn’t win; Chris Coons coasted to an easy victory in Delaware. So why did Gawker post that story again? source
