FoxNews.com Headline: O'Donnell: No Witchcraft Since High School

Reported by Ellen - September 20, 2010 -

I was just looking around FoxNews.com for something when I came across this headline that you know Fox hated to write: O'Donnell: No Witchcraft Since High School. The article reports on recent revelations that Christine O'Donnell had "dabbled" in witchcraft along with Karl Rove's recommendation that she "deal with it and explain it and put it in its most sympathetic light and move on." Apparently, FoxNews.com decided to help her out in that regard.

The article, written by Fox's Kimberly Schwandt, begins with these paragraphs:

Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell on Sunday chalked up her experimentation in sorcery to being a teenager, saying there's no magical explanation to her 1999 confession that she "dabbled into witchcraft."

Speaking to Republican picnic-goers, the insurgent Tea Party candidate said she didn't doing anything differently than lots of kids at that age.

"I was in high school, how many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school? But no, there's been no witchcraft since," she said, shrugging off her dalliances with the dark arts.

"Now let’s put that to rest and move on to what we’re going to do," she said.

Besides Schwandt's hilarious lack of doubt that dabbling in witchcraft is nothing unusual for a conservative Christian candidate to have done in high school, she also overlooks how O'Donnell's first excuse for canceling an appearance on Fox News Sunday - exhaustion - directly conflicted with her activities.

If this is the "most sympathetic light" for O'Donnell's witchcraft, she's going to need some real magic to help her get elected.
