Exclamation Christine O'Donnell "I'm Not a Witch" TV Spot - October 8th 2010, 12:13 AM

Hi guys. Sorry I keep blowing the whistle on this lady, but lately she has been grinding my gears, and just a day or so ago I nearly popped.

Basically, she has a TV ad out for her campaign that begins with "I'm not a witch. I'm you."

Well she certainly isn't a witch, but she isn't me, either. On top of that, does she even have an idea of how many Pagan Americans there are? That are now taking strides to make sure everyone realises what a terrible asset she would be to the Senate?

Llewellyn's website played host to an article about the ad, and also listed a bunch of people who posted counter-ads on youtube (I made the list, actually, if you know my real name). http://www.llewellyn.com/blog/2010/1...tine-odonnell/

Now, I know not every single pagan identifies with the word "witch" but I have to ask -- how does this make you feel? Personally I am pretty much appalled; I've been called a devil worshipper and other unsavory things by people who are more or less inconsequential, but that kind of person is making her way into our government (or at least trying to). And the most important thing about being a part of our government is to uphold its values. And she clearly has NO intention of doing that.

For any non-pagans, try to look at it from our side if you don't already understand. Imagine someone starting an ad campaign painting something you identify with as something bad. "I'm not a Christian, I'm you!"

Thoughts please!

This woman is a travesty. A walking face-palm.

Which is why I'm glad she's running. Hopefully her and the rest of the Tea Baggers will cause a rift in the republican party and we can get a more centrist republican movement.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

wow...that was a really really REALLY bad political move on her part.

it would be interesting to see if she could win off this


"One of the things I regret the most of being able to imagine anything,
is having to fear nothing"


"Realty is a lot more malleable then most people think.
They just refuse to believe that they can do anything about it."

"If a simple electron has a small,
but nonzero chance of doing the impossible,
what is stopping us from doing the same thing?"

She can't be 'normal'. At least 85% of the population masturbate.

We're not doomed.... at least, not because of her. Much to my relief, polls indicate she's trailing by double digits against her opponent. Which means that her super-conservative, far right wing lunatic ideas won't make it to the Senate by her power.
