Sometimes, you should lie.

I’ve been reading through this collection of Christine O’Donnell quotes. Some of them don’t seem very odd, but others seem like something Steven Heck, the insane secret agent in the game Alpha Protocol, would say.

What especially interested me though, was this:

 “Appearing on Political Incorrect with Bill Maher, O’Donnell explained the importance of truth-telling, refusing to even entertain the notion of lying when a gust [sic] asked if she would tell the truth Nazis looking for Jews hiding in her home. “I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that! … You never have to practice deception””

Quite a stupid answer, no doubt. To be fair to O’Donnell, though, I’m not sure what the point of such a question is, other than to bait her into a can’t-win situation.

And seriously, why do people feel a need to bring the Nazis into all political discussions?

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
