She’s not a witch ... nor is Christine O’Donnell a senator after Tuesday’s election.

The tea party movement took a hit and made a big score, respectively, in the defeat of Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and Marco Rubio’s Senate victory in Florida over Gov. Charlie Crist. Also out in Florida is Rep. Alan Grayson, who had been the first Democrat to be elected to the House from his district in 26 years, according to the Orlando Sentinel.  —KA

The Washington Post:

O’Donnell lost to Democrat Chris Coons in the battle for the seat that had been held by Vice President Joe Biden. She had been criticized for her lack of experience and spotty financial history, and was plagued by a videotape from years ago in which she said she “dabbled” in witchcraft.

Rubio defeated independent Gov. Charlie Crist and Democrat Kendrick Meek.

I don’t know whether many of you listened to Rubio’s victory speech, but he uses his family’s exile from Cuba as well as the Jews market the holocaust!  Almost all of the people who fled Cuba when Castro seized power were Batistaites——they were the elite wealthy class who were quite happy with the corrupt dictatorial policies of Batista and his partnership with Meyer Lansky and company.  Like the Jews and the holocaust, the Cuban will milk their exiled status for all it’s worth.

I agree with SarcastiCanuck. O’Donnell’s loss is also a great loss for political comedy.

Too bad Christine O’Donnell didn’t win.It would of been 6 years of hilarity on national t.v.I guess Stewart,Colbert and Maher have to find other targets in the political spectrum.Shouldn’t be too hard.

Congratulations Truthdig. This is a win for you and your half-witted Obama bashing.

Thank God. I’m an Australian and I was scared of her getting a seat!
