I have no idea who Christine O’Donnell’s political consultant is, other than it’s not Karl Rove.
But if she were my client, I would have played things differently on the whole witch deal.
The flat-out denial in this week’s much-talked about TV commercial — “I’m not a witch” — was fine with me.
Except O’Donnell, the tea party candidate for Senate in Delaware, might have done herself a favor by adding one of those “Seinfeld”-esque disclaimers.
Like “I’m not a witch — not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
As a Republican with an uphill battle ahead of her in a Democratic state, the last thing she needed was to tick off a voting bloc.
“So what you’re saying, Christine, is that you don’t want our support?” the Wiccans had to be thinking.
Still, I do like the overall approach. Denial. Politicians always tell us what wonderful people they are and how their opponents are thieving reprobates.
