WILMINGTON, Del. – ‘Saturday Night Live‘ has taken another jab at Christine O’Donnell — and the Delaware Senate candidate says the riff on her recent television campaign ad “was really funny.”

In the ad that debuted this week, O’Donnell tells the camera, “I’m not a witch.” The line from O’Donnell’s ad makes light of comments she made on a talk show in 1999.

The spoof begins with ‘SNL’ actress Kristen Wiig using lines similar to the ad. It then diverges into the absurd, with Wiig asking, “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.”

O’Donnell responded with a Twitter posting on Sunday morning, saying the skit was funny and adding: “I have to admit, her hair looked better than mine.”
