    And to think the Tea party is sponsoring a van and has cast Nancy Pelosi as the wicked witch, now they have a real witch in their corner, O'Donnell and perhaps her supporter Sarah Palin, enough of the chattering witches. O'Donnell should keep all interviews in national media, not like Sarah thaat was afraid to take on the Sunday hot seats, but maybe after months of trying to prepare herself, old Sarah may finally sit down and debate the real issues, not. Rove knows a witch when he sees one, that's his fulltime job and he's been great at it, he and his previous boss. It has nothing to do with religion. Let's have it for do-nothing candidates, desperate because of...Mr. President, don't you just love it. He needs some of that cash for all those scam books and magazines.

    I think Karl Rove just handed the election to O'Donnell because what he still does not get is that the American people are tired of the attacks instead of the issues.

    If O'Donnell is a witch, then I hope she turns all of the old guard into toads and don't any of you women dare kiss any of them to bring them back.

    Karl Rove, I am a Christian, and you need to get a life.
