Glenn Beck: Christine O'Donnell Is 'Bewitched'!

On his radio show Monday, Glenn Beck laughed-off the revelation that Delaware Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell "dabbled into witchcraft" in her youth.

With the music from the classic TV show "Bewitched" playing in the background, Beck said:
"And now, Christine O'Donnell is 'Bewitched.' With Robert Gibbs as Doctor Bombay. Lindsey Graham -- a man who's living a lie, pretending he's something he's not -- as Darren Stevens. And Agnes Morehead as Nancy Pelosi."
Agnes Moorehead played the witch Endora on the show. Dr. Bombay was a warlock.

It was originally unclear what Beck was referencing regarding Sen. Graham's "pretending he's something he's not." Beck later clarified that Graham was pretending to be something he's not ... a Republican.

In the past, Graham has been questioned about his sexuality, so this may have been a veiled reference to that. Dick Sargent, the second actor to play Darren on "Bewitched," was gay. Additionally, Beck's sidekick joked that Graham could also be a good "Uncle Arthur." Uncle Arthur was portrayed on the show by Paul Lynde, who is thought to have been gay...

Beck joked that the song should become O'Donnell's new campaign theme.

One other observation: Glenn Beck's radio show is dramatically better than his TV show. He is extremely funny and irreverent.

For this reason, I predict that if Beck ever crosses the line in a serious way, it will come from something he says on his radio show, not on TV.

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.

I am a witch were not Satanist you can’t worship something you don’t believe in. Neither of you know about witches. I’m not evil IM NOT ASHAMEMD. Pagans have been around longer than any other religions. So what if she was a Witch.. I don’t think she was or she would know better than to be ashamed of it. She would know there not Dirt Bags and there’s nothing Horrible about it. Oh yeah,,, I use to be a Christian, I converted to Pagan, I followed what was in my heart. I don’t understand why no.1 what anyone did in high school counts in politics. No.2 anything about witchcraft has anything to do with politics. From what I do know about Satanist most Satanist don’t believe in Satan just what he stood for. They don’t kill Christians… However it wasn’t’ so long ago when Christians did kill Pagans. Thats all in the past. I don’t have anything against Christians but I am tired of being judge by them… I’m not to crazy about either candidate glad I didn’t have to vote.

It's not double entendre. He said saying Lindsey Graham is pretending to be a conservative Republican and he's not.
