I tried. I really tried to find a picture of the congresswoman from Minnesota in which she doesn't look like a moron or a lunatic, but I don't think there is one.
Bachman is a real piece of work. No one had ever heard of her (I hadn't, so I assume no one had) until she came up with the suggestion that the media should investigate members of Congress to see which ones were "Anti-American"
Because, you know, there's political gold to be mined in being the new Joe McCarthy!
When asked about this later, she denied ever having said it, apparently not realizing that TV cameras ,um, record things. She claims it was an "urban legend" that she had said this.

Next, she pops up at CPAC shouting at Micheal Steele "You Be Da Man!"
Not satisfied to be the poster girl for wingnuttery and buffoonery, Now she is setting her sights on becoming the next Chuck Norris, or Glenn Beck.
Here is what Ms Bachman had to say on Saturday:
“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. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.”Seriously.
She wants an armed mob of Minnesotans fighting a new revolution.
I'm not kidding.
Hey, Minnesotans! This is what you vote for? Really? Jesse Ventura wasn't embarrassing enough for you? What the hell is going on up there?
Seriously, though, if some nutjob decides to take Bachman up on this, someone could get killed. Michelle Bachman, you are not a serious person, and you have no business being an elected representative of any state. What you are doing is called sedition, and it's dangerous, irresponsible, and oh, yeah, ILLEGAL! Here's the new rule. If you can't say something sane, shut your god damned piehole!
