Been wondering about this O'Donnell thing since the footage was brought up. At the time she was trying to get her political career started and had made all kinds of ultraconservative appearances on different shows. In order to boost her "super Christian" street cred - she told a flat out lie on national TV, and not one that was a he said/she said kind of thing, she lied about an entire religion. It was something that would be blatant and obvious to anyone who had the first clue about religion. 10 years ago she went on tv and talked about a "satanic altar" being used by a religion that doesn't believe in Satan. That's like saying you went and checked out the crucifix at your local synagogue or the cathedral's Buddha
Was the boost among her (likely less educated about the subject) base worth the inevitable revelation that she was talking out her ass? Are there enough people who will rather believe the lie than condemn it

Her financial lies are the most serious. her getting fired from her last job and her suing them......using donor money to pay her rent...
The Satanic 41 year old virgin ones are the more fun ones..
She is living with her campaign manager / boyfriend...no pre-marital sex or masturbation...I'm sure

She also appeared on Bill Maher's show more than 20 times...

I agree, her base lumps "witches" in with satanists....

Yeah, but at the time she made the comments, that wasn't brewing yet. I'm wondering more in general - start of her career, and honestly, without Bill Maher she wouldn't even really have a career, and she tells a lie on camera that will follow her for the rest of her life. At what point do you make the decision that to do so is going to do you more good than telling the truth (or more likely in her case, saying nothing at all since no event ever actually happened).
Maybe it was naivate'. Maybe she just wanted to LOOK like she had something to add..Jamie Kennedy's expression was PRICELESS
I am not sure why people lie these days KNOWING all the camera's are rolling....
