By now everyone has heard the news that Christine O'Donnell, a radical right extremist endorsed by Sarah Palin, defeated Delaware's very popular Republican Congressman Michael Castle in a senatorial primary election this past Tuesday.
That surprise victory sparked a deluge of internet postings of past statements attributed to O'Donnell and even more damning, video clips of O'Donnell saying what even Karl Rove called "wacky things".
The quote that has O' Donnell supporters most concerned however, is the one listed above: Here's an exact transcript of what she said:
I dabbled into witchcraft..I hung around people who were doing these things! I'm not making this stuff up, I know what they told me they do.. and on of my dates, one of my first dates was a witch, was on a Satanic Altar and I didn't know it and there was a little blood there and stuff like that...
Ok, so she doesn't say she had sex (later in the clip she say's she had a "picnic" on the alter), and she doesn't say she was a virgin but, given the spin the Republicans have historically put on Democratic candidates' statements, I'd say that with "first dates", "Satanic Altars", "A little blood there" one could make the argument that CHRISTINE O'DONNELL SACRIFICED HER VIRGINITY ON THE ALTAR OF SATAN!
Is this unfair? Well..you might be able to say that UNLESS you maintain that President Obama, despite all the evidence again it, is a Muslim or worse yet, the Antichrist!
Let's pause for a moment to ponder (forgive the pun) what the Fox News Witch Hunt would be like if a 15 year old video surfaced with Barack Obama saying EXACTLY the same thing? It would be a 24/7 barrage of non stop negative commentary.
In MY religious upbringing, the Antichrist would be a religious (or political) leader so charismatic, so attractive, so enticing that many true believers would be deceived. They would blindly follow this person no matter how extreme their views or how compelling the evidence as to who this person actually is!
While I give great credence to the idea that the Antichrist will be FEMALE, and an attractive articulate female at that, I'm not ready to post today that Christine O'Donnell is the Antichrist.
What I am AM saying is that, before you "purveyors of the true word of God" call my elected President the Antichrist, please take into account that, in his own statement he professes to be a "born again believer in Jesus Christ", while YOUR candidate ON VIDEO said she had "a picnic with a witch on the Altar of Satan with blood and stuff like that!"
