Just how crazy is Christine O'Donnell? (4)

So utterly crazy that she wants to ratchet up the tension between China and the U.S., saying back in '06 that the two countries shouldn't be friends and implying that war is, or should be, on the way. Seriously, you can't make this shit up:

Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware said in a 2006 debate that China was plotting to take over America and claimed to have classified information about the country that she couldn't divulge.

O'Donnell's comments came as she and two other Republican candidates debated U.S. policy on China during Delaware's 2006 Senate primary, which O'Donnell ultimately lost.

She said China had a "carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America" and accused one opponent of appeasement for suggesting that the two countries were economically dependent and should find a way to be allies.

"That doesn't work," she said. "There's much I want to say. I wish I wasn't privy to some of the classified information that I am privy to."

She, however, can make a lot of shit up -- and seems to do so frequently. There is obviously no evidence of any of this, and she apparently wants the U.S. to view China as an enemy and to prepare for war -- to resist China's supposed aggressive intentions (whether military or otherwise, it's not clear).

And why is she so anti-China? Presumably, given her comments about abortion and the freedom to read The Bible, because China is un-Christian. And because, therefore, it's an easy target for her and her ignorant and fundamentalist ilk.

And because she's apparently willing to say anything and to make any shit up at any time.

And because she's a liar. And an idiot, a crazy idiot who's as embarrassing as any candidate we've ever seen on the national stage.
