OMG. I really feel like I’m picking on the handicapped kid, but she keeps talking.
Props to Political Animal Steven Benen for the Herculean task of wading through the nonsense that is nearly everything that falls from the lips of Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN). She opposes the new stimulus because we’re “running out of rich people in this country.”
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 Washington Monthly
Oh, but wait…there’s more!
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.) –The Washington Monthly
She ain’t done, yet!
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.” –The Washington Monthly
Okay, big finish…
“We are literally losing our country.”
She really ought to dodge the multisyllabic adventures.
