In a revelation sure to stun many of his Christian Conservative allies within the GOP, longtime Republican consultant and former Reagan White House political director Ed Rollins admitted on "Face the Nation" this Sunday that he has practiced the black art of voodoo.
Ed Rollins, former political director in the Reagan White House and a GOP consultant, said on CBS’ "Face the Nation": "Right now, this campaign’s about her. And unless she gets her ship righted, no matter how strong the Tea Party is or how much they’re in the mood for change, at the end of the day, people in Delaware, which is a small state, are going to focus on her, her past statements, what she’s saying now. And this is not a good start."
Asked by host Bob Schieffer if he had ever engaged in witchcraft, Rollins said, "I have had a voodoo doll or two of some of my candidates that I’ve wanted to strangle to stick needles in, in the course of a very long career … but never witchcraft."
This may have been a clumsy attempt to take the spotlight off of Christine O’Donnell’s witchcraft revelations — and whatever else Bill Maher has in his Politically Incorrect video vault, that he promises to release once a week until Ms O’Donnell agrees to come on his program — but Rollins has admitted something very serious here. Christian conservatives have very little tolerance for anything outside the standard religious worship of Jesus. It’s a very slippery slope from sticking voodoo dolls with needles to satanic rituals.
Rollins’ only hope of redemption is probably to repent of the error of his ways. Youthful indiscretions, don’t you know?
