Ron Charles: ‘I Am Not a Witch … I Am a Book Critic’

Washington Post fiction editor Ron Charles‘ dressed in drag to record a parody video this week (embedded above), confessing: ‘I am not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I am a book critic.”

The video poked fun at a campaign video from former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. In her new memoir, Troublemaker: Let’s Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again, O’Donnell admitted that her “I am not a witch” ad was not a good move during the 2010 Senate election in Delaware.

Charles made headlines last year for his Totally Hip Book Reviewer video series.
