Will the real witch please stand up!

Look who’s Talking
(by R.P.Edwards)

And nabobs
Putting on airs
Whining from windows
But really…who cares?
They’ve shown themselves shallow
With words…without weight
Aspersions, diversions
Purveyors of hate

Christine O’Donnell, currently in the hunt for Delaware’s Senate seat, has some rather embarrassing (I guess) footage from a 1999 appearance on Bill Maher’s, Politically Incorrect, that has recently surfaced.  Apparently the Republican contender admitted to some dabbling in witchcraft when she was a teenager.  And…I’m supposed to think less of her for this?

And my question is: Is that it?  And the follow up:  Is that the best you can do?  You see…I get it.  I understand that people on the left (and some on the right) are quite upset by these upstart tea party types who are infringing on “their” turf.  So, naturally, they want to smear her, demean her, lessen her.  And, when a juicy clip like this comes to light…well, that’s front page stuff!

But here’s the problem.  While Ms O’Donnell may have some dopey teenage actions to explain away (“Dopey Teenager” is enough of an explanation for me), the left have forgotten their own dirty dealings with the devil.  For it is these; these polished, cultured, educated sophisticates; it is these who have no problem supporting the murder of children in the womb.  You see, back in the "old days" any witch worth her satanic salt would slink into the corner and sacrifice the tiny innocents to their dark lord.  But today it's out in the open!  Infanticide is a right! And, when someone dare come along who has, as part of their resume, an opposition to the grisly practice, well, they're just extreme!  O dear, that was a bit distasteful, wasn’t it?  I mean, me pointing out such gross, shameless hypocrisy. Well…perhaps it’s time for some of that.  Perhaps it's time for some crude, coarse, unvarnished truth.  And, if enough people pay attention; if enough people begin to realize the bilge we've been buying all these years, then maybe, just maybe we can repair this American raft before it sinks...due to rot.
