Unlikely Ally

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told Sean Hannity something odd the other day. (Yeah, I know; it’s not exactly a news flash for her to say something odd.)

“…people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress,” said Bachmann, “and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions.”

That sounds a lot like what people who are pro-choice have been saying about a woman’s right to choose for decades now. Welcome aboard, Ms. Bachmann.

Of course, she probably didn’t mean it that way. After all, she’s all in favor of government-run healthcare when it comes to reproductive choice.
