Something tells me there is much more of this to come.

TRENDING: O’Donnell in 1999: I dabbled in witchcraft

(CNN) – Newly-minted Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell – who already has had to contend with a string of controversial statements she has made in the past – once said she “dabbled into witchcraft.”

Read the rest.

Defenders of O’Donnell have accused the MSM, Rove, even some of us here at PD of being too harsh on her and not giving her a chance in November. The problem with the multi-race, multi-losing O’Donnell is that she’s a terrible candidate. It has nothing to do with her affiliation with the Tea Party or her criticism of the national GOP. I love upstart, brave, bold, brash candidates, even those who run against their own party. (I ran for the GOP nomination for Congress against an incumbent in 2000.)

I’m a conservative. I believe in conservative philosophy. I believe Reid/Pelosi/Obama are damaging to our country. But I’d take squishy Mike Castle in the US Senate over a lockstep liberal any day. And that, friends, is exactly who’s going to win in Delaware in November.

And to those of you who think it’s no big deal to sacrifice a Senate seat to purify and punish the GOP, it’s time to put your big boy pants on. You’ve given the dems this seat in Delaware for as long as Coons wants it.

Time for the GOP to pull out of this race and go back to their gut instinct. She can’t win.
