When I heard about Christine O’Donnell being privy to a classified information about a Chinese strategic plan to take over the United States, I could not help but recall the South Park clip below about a descent into conspiracy theory paranoia.

As Fallows notes in the link above, it is not crazy to be worried about the threats posed to the United States by the rise of China.  It is the part about being privy to the classified information that she is unable to disclose that is is batshit crazy, particularly in a person whose career arc would not have put her anywhere near such information.

UPDATE:  The source of the secret plan appears to be non-profit missionary groups working in China.
