The worst member of Congress

Hey Michelle Bachmann: You want an investigation into the possible "Anti-American" views of any members of Congress? How about we start with you? Because suggesting that there is some set of views that are acceptable for Congress members to hold (the "pro-American" set) and another set of views that would be unacceptable (the "Anti-American" set) might be considered "Anti-American" by some.

And by suggesting that there may be "Anti-American" members of Congress, what exactly are you suggesting? Are you suggesting that those members are pursuing policies and initiatives that are detrimental to the well-being, even national security, of our country? That they are somehow actively working against our nation's best interests? Because, well, that sounds an awful lot like treason. Treason is punishable by death, so that seems like a pretty serious crime. Maybe you should think a little bit more before you start down a path of suggesting that your fellow members of Congress might be Anti-American.

And when someone asks you if you're really saying 30% of the country is "Anti-American," the only correct answer is "No." But you couldn't bring yourself to utter that simple word. Am I being "Anti-American" if I call you an extremist wackjob?

To all my Minnesota friends: could you please move to her district in the next day or two so you can vote against this nutbag?
