Anticipated reaction of the Teabagger fundamentalist contingent upon learning of Christine O'Donnell's admission she'd "dabbled into (sic) witchcraft" while in college:
Eleven years ago a boisterous Christine O'Donnell confessed to Bill Maher and his ABC audience that she'd dated a witch, "dabbled into witchcraft" and even went on a midnight date involving blood on an altar.
Maher aired the Oct. 29, 1999 clip on the season premiere of his HBO show "Real Time."

For the record, what Christine later goes on to describe wasn't related to Wicca at all. And in partial rebuttal, I offer the wise comments of Willow Rosenberg (fictional, 'Hush", Buffy: The Vampire Slayer): "Bunch of wanna blessed be's. Nowadays every girl with a henna tattoo and a spice rack thinks she's a sister to the dark ones."
That won't matter to the 'Baggers though. More than once, I was accused of 'dabbling in witchcraft' when I played Dungeons and Dragons while in high school and college.
And that "W"-word is like snausages to a rabid hound.
