The new Christine O’Donnell TV ad addresses the witchcraft gaffe. O’Donnell is the 2010 Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat in Delaware once held by Joe Biden. After being accused of dabbling in witchcraft by comedian Bill Maher, the theme of the new Christine O’Donnell TV commercial is “I’m not a witch”. This is just one of many attacks made against the Tea Party favorite who defeated Michael Castle in the primaries to face Democrat Chris Coons, also known as ‘The Bearded Marxist’. Unlike Coons, both O’Donnell and Sarah Palin does not believe in tax-and-spend nor gun control.

The new Christine O’Donnell TV ad is very simple and begins with saying, “I’m not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you. None of us is perfect, but none of can be happy with what we see all round us. Politicians who think spending, trading favors and backroom deals are the ways to stay in office. I’ll go to Washington and do what you’d do. I’m Christine O’Donnell and I approve this message. I’m you!”

Bill Maher had shown an old video clip from a dozen years ago where O’Donnell commented about having hung out with some people who claimed to be witches while she was in high school. She ‘dabbled’ in witchcraft when she dated one guy who apparently had weird ideas about using a ‘satanic altar’ on a picnic date. Maher claims he has more embarrassing video of O’Donnell, but after this lead balloon burst, no new attacks have been launched by him.

Hopefully, the new Christine O’Donnell TV ad will end that issue. Christine O’Donnell’s biggest critics seem to come more from the GOP Establishment who had hoped for Michael Castle to win the primary than silly witchcraft accusations. They thought that only Castle could defeat Chris Coons for Delaware’s vacant senate seat. But Christine O’Donnell won with support from the Tea Party and Sarah Palin. Only after her victory did some of the GOP Establishment, like Mitt Romney, jump on board her bandwagon. Surely, it was not because of her stance on gun control? Even now, some in the GOP are encouraging Castle to run as an independent, but with only 4 weeks to go, his chances are zero.
