Quote of the Week (Early Contender)


"I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. 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."

-- Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Dingbat), of course, possibly inciting violence and definitely inciting right-wing idiocy

is there a link that can provide more context? I mean clearly she is a loon, but context would be nice.

How exactly is an energy plan going to take away your country, Bachmann. How?

If that is an accurate quote (and I bet it is since it is appearing everywhere) I am tempted to suggest that maybe you should remove the 'early contender' designation.

Then again, I always underestimate the crazy that the repubs bring.

Anon 10:00, looks like Obama is proposing $400 billion in taxes on the oil and gas industry. That's according to the American Petroleum Institute anyway:

Long overdue in my opinion, but, surprisingly, the API doesn't agree.

In a press release issued earlier this afternoon, C. Fred Turner denied rumors that Michelle would be joining the band on the second leg of their Not So Old We Can't Wear Leather Pants Tour.

"Michelle approached us about working together," Mr. Turner said, "but one look into that crazy bitch's eyes and we realized that she wasn't Overdrive material. Honestly, she scared the hell out of us, and we toured with Joe Walsh!"

Mr. Turner further stated that the band would dedicate all future performances of "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" to Rep. Bachmann. "We've just kind of got a feeling, you know?" said Mr. Turner.

We attempted to contact Rep. Bachmann for a comment, but her spokesperson informed us that, "Michelle is currently unreachable."

Of that we have no doubt.

Back to you in newsroom.

Ah yes, we Minnesotans just always have at least one complete nut-job representing our fine state. Her opinions may put her in the ideological minority around these parts, but she truly believes her calling is from God, and it's becoming tougher to just laugh off her nonsense, if only for the fact that she gets so much attention.

How is this suggestion any different in spirit than that race war the GOP was predicting/condemning in advance whether or not Obama won? People don't get what they want, they have a hissy fit to the point of violence; am I missing something?
