‘Oooh, Hooo, Witchy Woman . . .’

Posted on | September 22, 2010 | 32 Comments

See how high she flies!

Brian at Red Dog Report has much more. The big MSM headline from last night’s Hannity appearance was that Christine O’Donnell has decided to stop doing national media interviews. and concentrate instead on winning over Delaware voters.

That’s just common sense, by the way. She’s raised more than $2 million in the week since defeating Mike Castle in the primary, and she has become such a huge national media story that some Delaware voters might think she’s getting too big for her britches. So she now she hires more staff, opens some campaign offices, starts running TV ads, gets ready for debates, and concentrates on reaching voters one-on-one at the retail level.

This isn’t anything sneaky and obscure, it’s just old-fashioned politics. But because she’s got that Sarah Palin endorsement, Christine the Teenage Witch really casts a spell over the addled victims of Palin Derangement Syndrome:


Because Charles Johnson Really Hates Her

UPDATE: Judging from the reaction on Twitter, if Sarah Palin’s theme song is “Barracuda,” we know what tune they’ll play to introduce Christine O’Donnell at her Nov. 2 victory celebration.

UPDATE II: Speaking of magic, a certain Delaware Democrat knows how to make economic growth disappear:

Chris Coons taxed New Castle County to the brink of extinction in just 3 short years as the county executive, raising property taxes for homeowners a total of 58% from the starting price.

Raise taxes and — Poof! — your money’s gone!

    Sounds like CJ is pro-wanking. Perhaps he should blog on that subject.

    Well, I’d like to see a witch in Congress, anyway.

    But what Republican isnt hurt by hostile press?

    t’s nice to see Charles Johnson is still the sane rational dude we know and love.

    For a while, I was worried he was losing it.

    Did someone mention me. I was busy…uhhhhh…let’s just say I was temporarily not master of my domain. I was contemplating the top of Chris Cooms dome. Hmmmm.

    The MSM is going crazy over her refusal to do national interviews. How dare she deprive them of the opportunity to destroy her! Who does this woman think she is, Sarah Palin?

    I have to laugh. Watched CNN yesterday and they vowed to not give up and to pursue her relentlessly for the next six weeks.

    Even if O’Donnell loses she is doing a great service for our movement. She has caused the MSM to focus all their energy and attention on her, to the point they are now ignoring Angle, Paul and Miller. Have you noticed, since last Tuesday all the left wing blogs and MSM have not had one story on Angle? This will give her some breathing room to move up in the polls.

    Hopefully Bill Mahr and the left wing crazies will keep this up. It may actually help O’Donnell win from a backlash by voters, and even if it doesn’t, it stops the media from concentrating on Angle, Paul and others.

    I am on to you guys! But I can’t mobilize the forces of darkness and the MSM one handed, because I am really busy.

    And nobody other than my pathetic loser lizoids even care what I have to say anymore. I am a pariah and nothing more than a useful idiot to the left.

    Boy that is hard to type one handed.

    Carl, better yet, it broadens the number of states the Democrats have to put resources into.

    As a Democrat party official, would you really think Coons is a shoe-in?

    Democrats ignore DE at their own peril, but, the DNC can’t be strong everywhere.

    Redux from previous post

    Under oath “I am going to say this again: I do not have sex with that woman (er, technically)”; The alleged premeditated drowning of his own secretary after a sex party; Dapped in cocaine, ACORN community organizer, God-dammed American, Black Panther theology. Oh, his personal morality view and his own private life has absolutely no bearing to his job performance and public policy, not a political career ending factor, Ah, the most distinguished senator? need I say more?

    Same old, same old time-worn mug-sling playbook of the left to tar the conservatives : Sarah Palin’s family violence, pending divorce, frivolous lawsuits; Nicky Haley’s marriage infidelity; Sharon Angle’s scientology view; Scott Brown’s Cosmo center fold, and now Christine O’Donelle. Who cares! ordinary folks are more concerned with bread-and-butter, 1-in-10 unemployment, record deficit burgeoning national debt, government tax-and-spent the country into insolvency, Obamacare premium hike, and of the paramount, collective salvation from a fiscally and constitutionally run amuck big government.

    Comedian talkshow and political satire are fair games left and right, we all love good jokes musing at political characters but Maher and CBS seemed to have marginally crossed the line with blackmail and malicious intent to sabotage a conservative political candidate. For Christ sake, what a teen did decade ago disqualify her/him from running public office today??? Did they not also cover her conversion to Christianity? Oh, the media ridicule her for her Christian faith? Which one is she then? a witch or a Christian fanatic? Can’t have it both ways from the same outlet.

    HE said: “Let those who is without sin among you be the first to throw the stone“; they left, quietly, one by one. Good that she cancelled out CBS , best if all conservative politicians do likewise to the state controlled outlet. Big Climate Change (now Global Climate Disruption-Obaman modern translation) has reached a critical mass among the independent, conservative, the right and the center-left. Austro-turf teaport tempest voter anger is now Tsunami wave in reality. Let Bill Maher, CBS, politico pundits, be the first to throw the stone. Ordinary tea bagger folks will simply turn the channel, tune out the stale pathetic clown who himself looks like a witch, and the result, viewers are pissed off enough and turn off the network as they continue to scorn their viewers, stoke the flame of voter anger in their furnace, call it playing with fire. A politically correct marketing strategy and consumer business acumen for self demise.

    Let Christine O’Donelle run on the merits of her platform policy and stop dancing to the tunes of the Alinsky playbook.
    If there’s any indication on the downward trending of mainstream media viewership, viewers are leaving cable network TV news in droves: Drudge Report: “Broadcast Evening Newscasts Lose More than 1 Million Viewers in Past Year”.

    The tide has turned. Tea party movement has already and will further drastically alter media environment climate. A shrewd observation from Taiwanese News Animation on the analysis of Wall Street Journal vs New York Times, Media Tycoon Rupert Murdoch vs Junior Pinch Sulzberger. A stark comparison of the business model catering to the political right vs left viewership market. Foxnews is thriving quantum leap while the rest of the cable network TV news are shrinking in decline due to the political content they offer to their respective target audience. Other Foxnews’ strategic growth, element of success, genius business decision were the landing of the “good-as-gold” $million-buck bonanza winning tickets, Glenn Beck from CNN and republican VP candidate, who can reach and rally millions in a heart beat and a twitte, while the left news media have no such counter weight. (Beck’s wee finger is heavier than the whole body weight of hardball, softball, countdown, countup and tattoo-in-the-bud combined).

    That ship has already sailed (quite a few times):

    He’s adamant about the right to fuck himself. I’d explain to him that nobody wants to outlaw wanking but watching him pitch a fit about legislating his first love is just too much fun…

    “All politics is local.” She needs to concentrate her money and efforts within her own state, and ignore the national media. She needs to keep the focus on Obamacare, the deficit, job loss, and the recession. That’s the way to win.

    Did you guys hear her in this interview? She sounds very solid, very reasonable, and she defends conservative principles well.

    This gal is no embarrassment. I like this gal.
