On “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the acidic host dug up one of Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s embarrassing appearances on his “Politically Incorrect” show in 1999. “I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven,” she said. ” … I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do,” she said. “… One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that,” she said. “We went to a movie and then had a little midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”
Maher said on “Real Time with Bill Maher” that he has more clips of O’Donnell and will continue to air them until she appears on his show. Her campaign didn’t immediately return a telephone message Saturday, but she has in the past dismissed her previous comments.
O’Donnell had been set to appear on “Face the Nation” on CBS and “Fox News Sunday.” Campaign spokeswoman Diana Banister cited scheduling conflicts and said O’Donnell needed to return to Delaware for commitments to church events and an afternoon picnic with Republicans in a key county where she has solid backing.
“The priorities are back in Delaware,” Banister said. “Those are people who supported her, who were very helpful to her in the campaign, and she feels obligated to be there and thank them.”
