From the "She's got a wart" file
Is Christine O'Donnell a Witch?

I took a one month unplanned vacation from blogging. In that time per

Thiod Christine O'Donnell popped up from out of nowhere, replacing Justin Beiber as the most mocked person in the blogosphere. Last week, of course, the big news was the publication of an old video clip in which O'Donnell said that she "dabbled into witchcraft." The question became whether she is or isn't a witch. I don't even know why this is a question. Everybody knows how to tell if someone is a witch. I brought my old superhero friend, The Googleteer, out of semiobscurity to run the following search:

"Christine O'Donnell" AND "weighs the same as a duck"

as of today - Google returned 188 hits. I thought it would be ten times higher. Stephen Colbert was reasonably quick to propose the witch test. Here's his Witch Test clip.

Of course, this entire post is just an excuse to post a Monty Python video. Would you expect anything else?
