Christine O’Donnell, everybody’s favorite Tea Party-er, said in a 2006 debate that China had a clandestine plot to take over America. O’Donnell also claimed to be “privy to some of the classified information [concerning China’s takeover plot]”. (Source)
This is good stuff, but I don’t have to tell my smart readers that it’s good. They know rich material when they come across it.
O’Donnell keeps getting ‘flack’ for her many bizarre and outrageous comments concerning America, sexuality, Christianity, condoms, evolution, withcraft, science, and now, even China.
I love this woman. Her comments are not bizarre. O’Donnell’s comments are creative. What O’Donnell said about China creates / stirs good controversy.
And I love her for it. I have a bit of a crush on her. I can’t help it.
O’Donnell even says she wishes she wasn’t privy to some of the information she was privy to. (See first source above). Where is O’Donnell getting her secret information? I’ve found the source, and it fans my love / lust for Christine O’Donnell.
One of the many reasons I’m ‘falling’ for Christine O’Donnell is that she’s clearly read Kurt Vonnegut’s Slapstick. (For more about this wonderful sci-fi novel by one of America’s finest, read Books of The Times)
In Slapstick, Vonnegut, through the gloriously absurd mouth of Dr. Wilbur Daffodil-11 Swain, warns us that the Chinese are on a direct course to destroying Western civilization. (Ghandi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization, said, “I think it a great idea.”)
In Slapstick, the Chinese are “making vast leaps forward by miniaturizing themselves and training groups of hundreds to think as one. Eventually, the miniaturization proceeds to the point that they become so small that they cause a plague among those who accidentally inhale them, ultimately destroying Western civilization beyond repair.” (Wikipedia, sorry to quote Wikipedia, but that’s a pretty accurate description, as far as my article and Christine O’Donnell are concerned.)
As another description of the Chinese ‘large than life’ role in Vonnegut’s Slapstick is from Face In the Blue. It reads: “The Chinese, meanwhile, have walled themselves off from the rest of humanity and pursued a new course of science and evolution that sees them unlock secrets of extra-dimensional transportation and miniaturization. They share these secrets only obliquely and begrudgingly in exchange for knowledge they have not yet discovered on their own” (Source).
While old clips of Christine O’Donnell dominate the internet, I will stand by my notion that she is more interesting than most people; O’Donnell doesn’t confuse fact with fiction, she simply doesn’t know there is a difference.
And it’s difficult enough to find women who love Vonnegut’s Slapstick. Ms. O’Donnell, I deeply admire you!
