The Christine Crazy Just Never Stops

O’Donnell is definitely giving Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann a run for their money…

O’Donnell’s comments four years ago came as she and two other GOP candidates debated U.S. policy on China during the state’s Senate primary, The Associated Press reported. O’Donnell went on to lose the election.

When one of her opponents suggested the U.S. and China could benefit economically by becoming allies, O’Donnell accused him of appeasement.

“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.”

China had a “carefully thought-out and strategic plan to take over America,” O’Donnell claimed.

“We have to look at our history and realize that if they pretend to be our friend it’s because they’ve got something up their sleeve,” she added.

When challenged about her access to top-secret information, O’Donnell suggested she had received it through nonprofit groups she worked with that sent missionaries overseas, the AP said.

Riiiight.  Because nonprofit missionary groups are well-known for their access to (and generosity with) highly-classified intel.  That sounds totally plausible.


As Mark Leibovich at the New York Times reports, the O’Donnell family’s past claims that her father Daniel O’Donnell had worked as Bozo sparked an uprising of online commenters who insisted that no, Daniel O’Donnell was not listed on Wikipedia as having been one of the many regionally licensed Bozo the Clown TV hosts.

But now Leibovich has sorted things out — Daniel O’Donnell was an occasional understudy Bozo, not a full-time holder of the Bozo mantle.

Awesome.  Remember, this is the same woman who once explained that lying was such a grievous sin that she wouldn’t even resort to it to protect Jews from the Holocaust.  That now appears to be the exception rather than the rule.
