Running for: U.S. Senate in Nevada
Party: Republican
Why she's nuts: She's hinted at assassinating her opponent, wants to make alcohol illegal, and wants the press to "be our friend" so they "report the news the way we want it to be reported." Oh, and she thinks 13-year-old girls who are raped by their fathers should "turn a lemon situation into lemonade."
Chances of winning?: Pretty damn good, as she only trails the incumbent, Harry Reid, by one percentage point in the latest polls.
