SNL makes its own Christine O'Donnell ad

(CNN) – Move over Sarah Palin. Saturday Night Live has found its new favorite political target.

The late night comedy show took aim at surprise Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell for a second time Saturday, spoofing her recent ad in which the Republican declares, “I am not a witch.”

“Hi, I am Christine O’Donnell and I am not a witch, I am nothing like you’ve heard,” SNL’s portrayal of O’Donnell – played by Kristen Wiig - says in the mock ad. “I am you, and just like you I have to constantly deny that I am not a witch.”

"Isn't that what the people of Delaware deserve?” SNL’s O’Donnell continues. "A candidate who promises first and foremost that she's not a witch? That's the kind of candidate Delaware hasn't had since 1692."

O'Donnell herself responded on Twitter to the skit Sunday, writing, “SNL skit was really funny... and I have to admit, her hair looked better than mine.”

Full script of the "ad": Video here.

Hi I am Christine O’Donnell and I am not a witch, I am nothing like you’ve heard. I am you, and just like you I have to constantly deny that I am a witch.

Isn't that what the people of Delaware deserve? A candidate who promises first and foremost that she's not a witch? That's the kind of candidate Delaware hasn't had since 1692.

And that’s why, if elected to the human Senate I promise to fly straight down to Washington – on a plane – and do exactly what you would do, not spells.

Besides, if I were a witch, why wouldn’t I just cast a spell making all of you forget that I am witch? It’s certainly not because the spell requires one newt per person, and I lack a sufficient number of newts.

I know the problems facing our nation, because I have been living among you, since I moved to Delaware from the black forests from Germany almost three thousand years ago.

So this November 2nd, vote for Christine O’Donnell, aka Sereda the Enchantress. Because I am not a witch. And if I am, do you really want to cross me, I didn’t think so.

Paid for the Coven to Elect Christine O’Donnell, who is not a witch.

    The skit was funnny, but could have done much more. odonnel is such an easy target – even more so than palin. It is almost embarrasing to mock her because she is so amazingly dumb.

    The Tea Partiers bring it onto themselves when they run odd outsiders like O'Donnell. All the Tea Partiers are extremists and deserve every bit of scrutiny before the election. Just be warned, if you vote for them, becareful what you wish for! You just might get it.

    Besides, its just a comedy show. And it was a funny skit to make light of her every need to deny her past dabblings in witchcraft.
