Christine O'Donnell Cancels Sunday Morning Appearances

If you're into politics and spend your Sunday mornings surfing among the network talk shows, you may be expecting to see Christine O'Donnell on two of these shows this morning, "Face the Nation" on CBS and "Fox News Sunday". Forget about it, Christine O'Donnell canceled both appearances, saying she's attending a Republican picnic in Delaware. I don't know about anyone else, but I'll betcha she knew about the picnic when she agreed to these appearances! http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/09/18/politics/main6879198.shtml Is she simply following the footsteps of Sarah Palin and fellow tea party nominees such as Rand Paul and Sharron Angle? Did the clip Bill Maher showed on his show the other night where she told of having dabbled in witchcraft and of her first date with a witch on a satanic altar? This is going to be so much fun! Annie

"dabbled in witchcraft and of her first date with a witch on a satanic altar?" Wow...Typical christian ignorance. She has no idea how contradictory the inclusion of those two in the same sentence are apparently.

So did she just make up the story?

Actually, her exact words on the clip were, "I'm not making this stuff up!"...lol! Annie

So I read that she went to have a picnic with people that support her. Now, here's the problem I have wouldn't it be more effective to be out meeting with people that didn't vote for you? I mean crap you already know the people you're having your picnic with are going to vote for you how about talking to undecided voters or trying to win over the ones that vote democratic or the ones that voted for the republican candidate. Most politicians are so stupid in that aspect; they keep trying to win the votes of the people that will already vote for them.

They sure do love preaching to the choir, don't they? I kind of think in O'Donnell's case she wanted to raise more money for her personal expenses. THAT fun may be coming to an end in light of new reports. Annie

O'Donnell answered her critics about not doing the interviews. She had her last interview before the election this morning and said she thinks it is more important to spend time with the people of her state who will be voting in the election. Wise move, IMO.

Wouldn't even go on Fox Sunday? Face the nation isn't that bad of a place to go. The questions a just enough grit to them so they are not categorized as soft balls but still the questions are hittable. A picnic, Republican no less sounds like she is trying to shore up for party's support. I am sure that she did not plan this picnic on the spur of the moment. I am sure that she didn't just wake up one morning and say "Lets have a picnic." That picnic had to have been planned for at lest a month so for her to agree to do an appearance on the Sunday shows and then back out because of some picnic is too much for my taste. Palin, Rand, Angle, and now O'Donnell an awesome foursome they got there.

There now seems to be conflicting reports, or maybe they were conflicting excuses; on the CBS site it said she would be attending a GOP picnic in a county where she'd gotten a great deal of support but on Fox Chris Wallace said she'd canceled due to "exhaustion". Wasn't THAT Rand Paul's reason for canceling on "Meet the Press" right after his primary win? I also heard Sharron Angle had agreed to a debate with Harry Reid but backed out of that. At any other time in our history this foursome wouldn't stand a chance! Annie

Wow Annie, it looks like you have yourself a new obsession. Still, you can't help but mention Palin in every thread. Has O'Donnell already eclipsed Bachmann as your number 2 favorite politician?

Taskr, this interest is mostly about what's currently happening in politics, right? I guess you haven't noticed that O'Donnell has been EVERYWHERE this past week. Palin has been trying her best for the past two years to stay in the news on a daily basis and Michele Bachmann is trying to do likewise. As long as they're on the radar and doing and saying things that may be of interest, I'll probably keep on starting threads about them. Anytime you have something useful to say in these discussions, you're more than welcome. Don't ask me why I'm wasting my time commenting on your apparent disapproval of my choice of topics! Annie

Fun?? In what way? I would think if she dabble in witchcraft she would know how to deal with people who are disapproving. All I know we have enough problems in politics without bringing a witch in to muddy the waters even more than we have.

And what exactly is wrong with bringing a "witch" in?
• United States
22 Sep 10
Absolutely nothing if the witchcraft she dabbled in was Wicca. I too did extensive reading about white witchcraft as my great-aunt was a very well loved practicing white witch. According to what I have read the type of witchcraft O'Donnell was messing with was the Black Arts/Satanism involving blood rituals. That is exactly what it wrong!!!! Or did you not know there were different forms of witchcraft? If not I have now educated you!!!! So sorry your attempt to inflame my response just fizzled out!!

Thanks for your response, whiteheather. O'Donnell DID say there was some blood there. Annie

...Hi annie, Hope you are doing well. Witches, what's the big deal, there are so many people who act like witches or another word which rhymes with the word that it is not so out of the norm to me. "o) My favorite words from Ms O'Donnell are the ones about the mice with human brains. Now this conjures up pictures that we used to see of giant rats taking over cities. Maybe Ms O'Donnell should be debriefed and let people know just where these experiments are taking place so we can send in the troops to insure the safety of the human race. I am just waiting with bated breath to hear the next gem out of one of these people's mouths. The guy in N.Y. running for Governor, planning on having jail domitories for hygiene classes for people. Where are these people coming from? What else is out there? The X-Files cometh. Then there are the old crazies, Newt with his Obama is so far on the extreme crap, and who is the joker who wants to shut down the government because that worked so well for the GOP the last time they tried it? If the country was not in such a vunerable state I would laugh out loud but all this is leading to a very bad place I fear. Hope I am wrong but these are interesting but perilous times and it is only going to get worse. with people staking out their own ground for profitibility of one sort or another. Take care.

When I think about O'Donnell, Palin, Bachmann, Angle, the chicken lady, Rand Paul, Paladino and many others from the tea party gang or the far right wing of the GOP I realize that truth sometimes really IS much stranger than fiction. To paraphrase O'Donnell, you can't make this stuff up! It would be fricking hilarious if it were where it belongs - on the movie or tV screen! Annie

...Somebody put something strong in their water "o) They are headed to Washington, some all ready there. This will give Obama double trouble along with the no, no GOP, happy to stop the engines in hopes of grabbing the steering wheel in 2012. God help the country. Take care.

I was going to respond based on the primary excuse and now see that there is a secondary excuse...exhaustion. I don't believe that ditching the Sunday morning news-talk shows was a good idea for a couple of reasons. Agreeing to do something when you have already agreed to do something else at the same time is never good form, especially if both events are scheduled. It certainly doesn't make you look organized but, considering what has surfaced coming out of O'Donnell's own mouth recently, it's more likely that she's avoiding the press until it blows over.

I think it's a pretty sure thing that she canceled those appearances because of the witchcraft remarks that were shown on Bill Maher's show. I think Chris Wallace said she'd contact him "very late" Friday night to cancel. Maher's show originally aired at 10 pm EST. Annie

I have to agree that your new obsession is Christine O'Donnell. You seem to spend a lot of time posting about candidates and elected officials of the other party in other states, whichever one happens to be the big target of the liberal blogs and comedy show hosts. Not sure why her story about having once dated someone involved in witchcraft has much to do with anything. Maybe the guy she dated didn't know the difference between witchcraft and satanism. In any case, it's got... ummm... absoluting nothing to do with anything. I don't know why she cancelled. Maybe she needs some time to prepare, maybe there's a picnic like she said. Maybe she's attending a satanic ritual - wait, I Keith Olbermann is going to report on that later so I won't give it away just yet. It strikes me that the scandalmongers are coming up a bit short on O'Donnell if the best they can do is to make fun of some story from her youthful dating and the fact that she knew about stem cell experiments at Stanford that they didn't know about. I think there are humans with mouse brains writing some of these blogs and shows.

why are you so protective of this o'donnell? this is a politician who is looking more and more like a complete dumpling all the time. somebody who keeps saying completely misinformed things doesn't look much like the sharpest politico in the box to me.

Perhaps I just like to stand in front of the kid everyone's throwing tomatoes at. It's been my experience that the level of attack is usually in direct proportion to the opposition to the politician's positions on issues, but rather than discuss issues we dish on their personal lives.
@jb78000 (15173)

but you didn't start off correcting willluvsmoney. you were having a go at annie for posting about o'donnell. i think annie's started a couple of discussions on this, both reporting misinformaed comments this would-be politico has come out with. if o'donnell needs protecting from people questioning what she does, and drawing attention to silly things she said, then she is most definitely on the wrong career path. she's not a nervous kid starting at a new school.

So she went to eat with friends instead of being "eaten alive" by the liberal media hosts on those programs. I had a ouiji board (gasp!) when I was a teenager, but it is irrelevant to the person I am now. Maher's report was old bones. My guess is they had to dig up whatever drivel they could find to air about her since she wasn't there for them to accost her in person.

Fox New Sunday is done by Chris Wallace and even I know he's as conservative as they come.
