Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is being called the Sarah Palin of Minnesota.<br>Bachmann is the most conservative member of Congress.<br>Bachman is a devote Christian with strong views on abortion and a strong advocate for drilling for oil in Alaska. <br>She says that gay people suffer from sexual dysfunction.<br>Bachmann does not believe in global warming.<br><br>On Hardball this past week Bachmann said that she is very concerned that Obama may have anti-American views.<br>Chris Mathews asked, “How many people in the Congress of the United States do you think are anti-American? You’ve already suspected Barack Obama. Is he alone or are there others”<br>Bachmann replied, "What I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America. I think people would be -- would love to see an expose like that."<br><br>Bachmann’s words have proven costly. <br>Bachmann is up for reelection. Democrats have pounced on what she said.<br>Her opponent has raised 1 million dollars from 18,000 new donors since Bachmann’s appearance on Hardball.<br><br>Bachmann is now trying to backpedal from what she said. <br>In an interview on Monday, she said, “I did not suggest anti-American, Chris Matthews used the word “anti-American” and asked me to respond to it.<br>"So this has been completely misconstrued to say that I believe members of Congress are anti-American. I never said that. I said the media should look into it.<br>I also didn’t say that Barack Obama is anti-American. What I said is that the media should look into his views.”<br><br>So, okay, now I understand.<br>Michele Bachmann never said that Obama and some members of Congress are anti-American. <br>She is only suggesting that the media should look into it.<br><br>
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Is there a pattern here?<br><br>- Republican says something idiotic in front of a lot of people.<br>- Republican denies that he or she said it.<br>- Republican is told, "yes you did and we have it on tape right here."<br>- Republican blames the media and subsequently everyone who heard and understood exactly what he or she was saying.<br>- Republican then claims that he or she, "misspoke" or that it was otherwise a mistake.<br><br>- Driving your car with a to-go mug of coffee you just poured yourself in the kitchen while on the roof because you're half asleep. That's a mistake.<br>- Writing your address in the City, State field of a rebate form and having to use whiteout. That's a mistake.<br>- Buying the wrong type of chocolate for a desert recipe. That's a mistake.<br><br>- Insinuating that a presidential candidate is "anti-American" and then expounding on it by saying that there should be an in-depth investigation into Congress to find out who else is not all the way on Uncle Sam's side. That's not a mistake.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
Not to worry. Methinks come November 5 Bachmann and others of her *retch* species will be moved into their new habitats within the RNC National Zoo -- scheduled to open on Mars in the Spring of '09. <br><br>The first 100 visitors will be given complimentary bags of Rove Chips with which to feed the resident carnivores.<br><br>
