I am not a warlock

Given the furor over the recently revealed video of Christine O’Donnell saying she dabbled in the occult, I’d like to publicly denounce my private claim that I was a warlock.

I understand how things can be misunderstood when taken out of context. I did indeed say, in my younger days, “I am a warlock.” By younger days, I do mean last week.  However, it was only because I was asked how I conjured up a butterfly from the ether.

Let me be perfectly clear. I did not conjure the butterfly. They are known to flit about quickly and the butterfly in question only appeared to have arrived magically. Therefore, my pronouncement that I was a warlock was in jest.

And speaking of things in jest.  Check out this bizarre twitter hashtag meme.
