Christine O’Donnell made her much-hyped appearance on Sean Hannity’s program tonight, hyped all the more by Hannity’s introduction of her as “the woman the Democrats love to hate.” Though she carried herself well enough in a friendly environment, overall her appearance unfortunately didn’t merit the hype surrounding her primary victory…aside from the confirmation that this was her only national media appearance.
O’Donnell made that clear when Hannity referenced a recent Sarah Palin tweet saying:
C. O’Donnell strategy: time’s limited;use it 2 connect w/local voters whom you’ll be serving vs appeasing nat’l media seeking ur destruction
O’Donnell responded by saying Palin was “absolutely right” and that it was “great advice.” O’Donnell added that she only appeared on Hannity because she “had some business in New York” earlier in the day. She was steadfast, though, that she’s “not going to do any more national media,” and that the possibility is “off the table” because she’d rather focus on the people of Delaware.
Of course, Bill Maher came up. Hannity noted O’Donnell “did his show a lot,” to which she replied, “Unfortunately.” She also termed her dabbling in witchcraft “rebellion”…and in one of the more (and relatively rare) interesting moments of the interview, said, “Who didn’t do some questionable things in high school?”
