How much of an impact do you believe that O'Donnell's comment about "dabbling in witchcraft" will have on her campaign?

I think her supporters will ignore it and it will just further certify her detractors' opinions of her as a wingnut. Personally, her financial problems bother me more. But I'm from MA where voters sent Ted Kennedy back to the Senate after Chappaquiddick. Smile

I think they are already blindly ignoring it, just as they are blindly ignoring all of the rest of the questions surrounding her. I am with you on the financial issue though. I guess it is possible to vote on fiscal matters for the country when you have no clue in your personal life, but...???

Another question: Do you think most partisan voters hold their nose and vote for someone like this because they are more afraid of the other side, or is this a case where a great many voters just stay home?

Well, she sure lost the Wiccan vote...and the Satanists, too. As for the rest of the electorate, I guess it depends on how strong anti-incumbent sentiment is. I have to say that I fine Bill Mahr's one-man crusade against her to be a bit offensive--but then, he is incredibly mean-spirited.

When you have a Treasury Secretary who doesn't pay his taxes, anything is possible.
