Armed and Clueless

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is the gift that keeps on giving.

Bachmann appeared over the weekend on the First Team radio show with John Hinderaker and Brian Ward, speaking about the horrible stuff that the Democrats are doing: “I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington.”

Bachmann also spoke out against the cap-and-trade proposals currently making their way through Washington, and how she’ll be distributing information against it at an upcoming event in the district. “I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax, because we need to fight back,” said Bachmann. “Thomas Jefferson told us, having a revolution every now and then is a good thing. And the people – we the people – are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country.”

I was understandably disappointed when Katherine Harris, best known for her role as Florida’s Secretary of State during the 2000 recount and later as a Congressperson from Sarasota, lost her bid for the Senate here in Florida a few years ago. She was always good for a trip down Lunatic Lane with her paranoid claims of conspiracies and odd outbursts of strangeness. So I’m glad to see that Ms. Bachmann has not only taken up the torch for Right-Wing Nutsery, she’s running through the dry grass with it.
