(Newser) – Karl Rove thinks she's going to have to to address it seriously (see his comments today), but Christine O'Donnell is apparently hoping a more lighthearted approach will make the fuss over her old witchcraft dabbling go away. "I was in high school," she said at a public picnic in Delaware. "How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school? But no, There’s been no witchcraft since, if there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter.” Mediate has video and more coverage here. More about O'Donnell here.
