When Christine O’Donnell told the citizens of Delaware, “I’m not a witch, I’m you” in her senatorial campaign, the ad instantly became one of the most-parodied political campaign ads of all time. Here are ten of our favorite Christine O’Donnell parodies.
ORIGINAL: Christine O’Donnell: I’m You
Before checking out the parodies, watch Christine O’Donnell’s original ad. In it, she denies being a witch, admits that none of us are perfect, and tries to connect with viewers on an emotional level by letting them know, “I’m you”. Everyone gets what O’Donnell is trying to say in this ad – she’ll go to Washington and do what you would do because she wants the same things you want. But the way that she says it is a little creepy, off-putting and, well, parody-inspiring.
