The Republican candidate for Senate from Delaware made a rather remarkable proclamation after TV talk show host Bill Maher leaked a 1999 clip showing her saying she dabbled into witchcraft when she was a teenager.
Soft music plays during Christine O’Donnell’s campaign ad as she says: “I’m not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you.”
Ms. O’Donnell lost the election to Democrat Chris Coons. But her unusual political maneuver won her the No. 1 spot on the best quotes of the year list by Yale University librarian Fred Shapiro. “It was such a remarkable unconventional quote to be a part of the political discourse,” Mr. Shapiro said.
