To paraphrase Mark Twain: Is Michelle Bachmann an idiot? But I repeat myself.
Steve Benen, writing for the Washington Monthly, is convinced she is. Idiotic. Plainly. How the hell she got enough votes to return to Congress is beyond all comprehension. It is a supreme disappointment for me, a former Minnesotan.
Much has been written about her previous comments with regard to Obama and members of Congress.
Benen has some new stuff taken from a recent chat Bachmann had with a conservative radio talk show host.
1. She said ACORN was under indictment by the Feds and ACORN gets $5 billion" from the stimulus bill.
ACORN is not under indictment and is not mentioned in the stimulus bill.
2. She said a number of Congresspeople don't like "capitalism."
3. She said the stimulus bill has a clause which means that "your doctor will no longer be able to make your healthcare decisions for you."
4. She said the stimulus bill is part of a Democratic conspiracy to take money from Republican districts so the Dems can hog all the federal money. It won't work, though, cause according to Michelle "We're running out of rich people in this country."
Blah, blah, blah.
Isn't there some way to impeach a congresswoman for stupidity beyond belief?
