Commentary: Christine O'Donnell is not what voters deserve

While one is appalled by Christine O’Donnell’s ignorance and/or disingenuousness, one is not surprised. The capacity to be surprised by her died long ago, victim of revelations that she once "dabbled’’ in witchcraft. And was the subject of an IRS lien. And said people with AIDS brought the disease upon themselves. And was sued for nonpayment by her college and mortgage company. And was cited eight times by the Federal Elections Commission. And thinks scientists have created mice with human brains. That this woman is a major party candidate for national office, that she is among the brightest stars of a constellation of like-minded cranks tells you all you need to know about this moment in our political life.
