Yes, it's true, I am Christine O'Donnell, and so are you if you watch her new campaign commercial below. (Please watch the commercial before reading further -- it will be 30 seconds of your life well spent.)
Her commercial opens with the line: "I'm not a witch." You don't have to be a political expert to realize that if your campaign commercial begins with the statement: "I'm not a witch," your campaign is in trouble. This goes way beyond other famous political denials like Bill Clinton's: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" or Richard Nixon's: "I'm not a crook." This is special, she is denying being a supernatural being in the race for the US Senate. Priceless.
At end of her commercial, she creepily says: "I am you." Which to be honest, sounds a little witchy. Is this a spell? If her witchcraft works and I become her, am I now running for the US Senate? And she is now me? Does she have to go to New Jersey on Sunday to have dinner with my Mom?
I'm not sure, but after watching this commercial, one thing is certain: I have a new found appreciation for the intelligence of Sarah Palin.
Clearly, Christine O'Donnell's campaign is a wreck -- so in an effort to make it more interesting between now and Election Day, here are my suggestions for Christine:
But despite her denial and the fact there is no credible evidence, I think she is a witch. That is why I'm starting the "witchers" movement inspired by "the birthers." Why should the truth get in the way? It hasn't stopped Christine O'Donnell.
