Michelle Bachmann, A Great Example Of The Dumbing Down Of America!

Remeber Michelle Bachmann? She gained some national notoriety for some of her
frankly, stupid, comments during the 2008 election. In her race for re-election to her seat, the 5th district of Minnesota, she called for the national media to investigate members of Congress for perceived anti-American bias, including Barack Obama.
Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball, Bachmann had this to say.
"If we look at the collection of friends that Barack Obama has had in his life," she said, "it calls into question what Barack Obama's true beliefs and values and thoughts are. His attitudes, values, and beliefs with Jeremiah Wright on his view of the United States...is negative; Bill Ayers, his negative view of the United States. We have seen one friend after another call into question his judgment -- but also, what it is that Barack Obama really believes?"
When asked by Chris Matthews to expand on her views she continued.
"Remember it was Michele Obama who said she is only recently proud of her country
and so these are very anti-American views," she said. "That's not the way that most
Americans feel about our country. Most Americans are wild about America and they are
very concerned to have a President who doesn't share those values."
Matthews asked her to name a single member of Congress other than Obama who she
thought was anti-American. Bachmann, who initially wouldn't budge, called for a major "expose" into the matter.
"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 if they are pro-America or anti-America," she said.

The following comes from the Dump Blachmann blog.

* ACORN is "under federal indictment for voter fraud," but the stimulus bill
nevertheless gives ACORN "$5 billion." (In reality, ACORN is not under federal
indictment and isn't mentioned in the stimulus bill at all.)
* many members of Congress have "a real aversion to capitalism."
* the stimulus bill includes a measure to create a "rationing board" for health care, and after the bill becomes law, "your doctor will no longer be able to make your health care decisions with you."
* the recovery package is part of a Democratic conspiracy to "direct" funding away from Republican districts, so Democratic districts can "suck up" all federal funds. Bachmann doesn't think this will work because, as she put it, "We're running out of rich people in this country."
* the "Community-Organizer-in-Chief" is also orchestrating a conspiracy involving the Census Bureau, which the president will use to redraw congressional lines to keep Democrats in power for up to "40 years." When the host said he was confused, noting that congressional district lines are drawn at the state level, Bachmann said Obama's non-existent plan is an "anti-constitutional move."

It is easy to ridicule some shit head like this but we in Texas don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to complaining about other states that elect idiots to office. We have done more than our share of the same!

The Fresh Air Fund is also in need of hosts for this summer. Host families are volunteers who open their hearts and home to a child from the city to give a fresh air experience that disadvantaged children never forget.
