Christine O'Donnell's unlikely Senate campaign has sustained more damage from Bill Maher's archives than from her Democratic opponent--the revelation that she dabbled in witchcraft, the curious views on evolution and monkeys. Maher famously vowed to air a new tape of O'Donnell every week until she appeared on his show, and he's been true to his word. (She should probably get cracking.) So be sure to tune into HBO tonight: a well-placed Hollywood source informs me that O'Donnell's spiritual odyssey was much more elaborate than a short hop from witchcraft to Christianity. What could be next? Scientology? Jews for Jesus? Hare Krishna?
