Chrstine O’Donnell’s recent ad has raised some hackles. I don’t imagine she’ll understand why. In the true spirit of Tea Party nutjobs, she’ll assume that anyone who takes exception to the loopy things she says are just “haters”.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide if this ad should offend anyone, but I can’t help thinking about how much of an uproar there would be if she had put out an ad in which she declared “I’m not a Jew” or “I am not a Hindu” – as if the mere suggestion was offensive to most Americans.
I also wonder if the logic the Tea Party applies to President Obama holds here. When he says he’s not a Socialist, it only proves to them that he is. So can we assume that if Christine O’Donnell says “I’m not a witch” that she really is? And how do bona fide witches feel about being singled out like this?
Goddess, I miss reality based politics.
