O'Donnell: China Conniving to Take Over USA

I like the Tea Party. Really. But Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell from Delaware is making it harder every day for me to take her seriously.

From Politico:

Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell once claimed to have classified information showing that China was plotting to conquer the United States.

China had a "carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America" O'Donnell said during a 2006 Senate primary debate [...]

When her opponent pointed out that China and the US were so economically interdependent that an aggressive move of that kind on the part of China would make no sense, O'Donnell accused him of appeasement.

"A country that forces women to have abortions and mandates that you can only have one child and will not allow you the freedom to read the Bible, you think they can be our friend?" she said. "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."

Such fantasies are no more than silly in the average person but a United States Senate candidate should know better. Christine O'Donnell should not be elected.
