In 1999 Interview O’Donnell Said She’d Dabbled in Many Religions, but Couldn’t Be a Hare Krishna Because ‘I Love Meatballs
Oh, fer cryin’ out loud! Unbelievable. Somebody, please, shut this woman up! What an embarrassment.
CBS/AP) Bill Maher’s slow drip of clips from Christine O’Donnell’s past continued Friday, with another sampling of faith.
In a 1999 interview from Maher’s of “Politically Incorrect,” the Delaware Republican Senate candidate said that before she became a Christian she tried several religions, but skipped becoming a Hare Krishna because she didn’t want to be vegetarian.
Maher aired the clip of O’Donnell Friday night on his show “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
A video of the clip was later posted on the Think Progress website:
O’Donnell: “I was dabbling into every other kind of religion before I became a Christian.”
Maher: “You were a witch!”
O’Donnell: “I was! I was!”
Maher: “You were.”
O’Donnell: “I was dabbling in witchcraft. I’ve dabbled in Buddhism. I wanted to become a Hare Krishna but I didn’t want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why - because I’m Italian, I love meatballs.”
Maher: “Boy, are you spiritual.”
