CNN’s Joy Behar has put together a clip mocking Christine O’Donnell’s “I’m You” political ad.
Delaware Senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell’s first general election ad made headlines with the simple message that she isn’t a witch and the she’s you. It was reminiscent of the odd black and white Tiger Woods Nike commercial that featured wisdom from the golfer’s late father. Pundits are still trying to figure out if it was a good or bad move.
If you aren’t familiar with O’Donnell, the “witch” statement was in response to a video from 1999 that Bill Maher re-broadcasted on his Real Time show in which O’Donnell admitted to dabbling in witchcraft. Here is that clip:
And here is Christine O’Donnell’s already infamous tell it straight “I’m You” ad that was directed by political ad wizard Fred Davis:
“I’m not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you. None of us are perfect, but none of us can be happy with what we see all around us. Politicians who think spending, trading favors and back-room deals are the ways to stay in office. I’ll go to Washington and do what you’d do.” – Christine O’Donnell
The View veteran and CNN talking head Joy Behar felt it was necessary to respond to this ad with a clip of her own mocking the politician who recently upset, with backing from the Tea Party, U.S. Representative and former Governor Mike Castle in the Republican Senatorial primary. Here is the clip from Behar that she is calling a rebuttal to Christine O’Donnell’s ad:
“Christine, you’re not me. I’ve never dabbled in witchcraft or lied on my resume or taken campaign funds for personal use. And you don’t have hot flashes, bloating, night sweats or a mustache.” – Joy Behar
Those ladies from The View can be so sassy. Bleh, I can only imagine that the supporters of O’Donnell and the powers behind her campaign welcome this type of publicity. It feeds the “liberal media bias angle” and after watching that clip I can see the argument.
So what do you think of O’Donnell’s ad and Behar’s rebuttal?
