Minnesota’s Bachmann Loses It

Michele Bachmann from Minnesota’s third Congressional District is opening her mouth once too many times. First she went on Chris Matthews of Hardball MSNBC and called for all news organizations to investigate Un-American thoughts in the Congress which was frankly idiotic. She was harking back to the days of Joe McCarthy and the “Red” threat in days gone by before she was even born. Then today she tells the St. Cloud Times that Barack Obama’s views are against America?

Then we have this from Think Progress where Michele Bachmann just can’t shut up and inserts her foot in her mouth again. Barack Obama’s views are against America? Her words, not mine but I think we know what she means but I don’t think she knows what she said. She just accused a possible future President of the United States of All America of treason! Hint to Minnesota voters in the third district, you have a serious problem here. Think Progress has this on Bachmann just today…

Bachmann Doubles Down: ‘Barack Obama’s Views Are Against America’

On the defensive over her controversial Hardball appearance last Friday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told the St. Cloud Times yesterday that she regretted suggesting that Barack Obama held “anti-American” views. But at the same time Bachmann was apologizing for her remarks to traditional media outlets, Bachmann continued to cast aspersions on Obama’s patriotism in a series of appearances on right-wing radio shows.
On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show yesterday, Bachmann declared that “Barack Obama’s views are against America”:

BACHMANN: All I did on Chris Matthews is I questioned Chris Matthews and said, “look, if John McCain had friends like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and Father Pfleger, you’d be all over him Chris, but you’ve laid off of Barack Obama.” And so, he was using the word “Anti-American” and I told Chris, what I question are Barack Obama’s views. Because Barack Obama’s views are against America. They won’t be good for our country.

Normally, I would go on a tirade or knock down tantrum rant over this Congresswoman’s statement. Things like John McCain and Sarah Palin pretty much calling Barack Obama a Socialist, a Communist, and every other thing they can think of to divert attention to the fact that they can’t sell their campaign on the issues facing America. Thankfully, I don’t have too! Her own political party is backing off and pulling funding to her campaign for re-election for advertisements. Finally, common sense is rearing its ugly head over at the GOP. The message Bachmann is trying to sell for McCain and her party is not conducive to the party and the money is pulled from Bachmann’s campaign accordingly.

GOP Pulling Its Ads From Bachmann's Race, Media Buyers Say

Five days after Rep. Michele Bachmann went on a McCarthy-esque rant suggesting Barack Obama was unpatriotic and urging the major newspapers of the country to investigate anti-American sentiment in Congress, the national Republican political parties are running for cover.

Two sources aware of ad buys in Minnesota say that the National Republican Congressional Committee is pulling its media purchases from Bachmann's race. If true, it is a remarkable fall for a congresswoman who, until recently, seemed relatively safe in her predominantly conservative district.

Damn them smart thinking GOP’ers for pulling the funding from Michele Bachmann! Umm, I got nothing to say now. Oh, did you know Michele Bachmann wanted to ban the Disney movie Aladdin because it had Muslim sympathetic tendencies? Not that it has a good against evil message for children. It looked like a terrorist plant movie to her. I’m done on this issue. Check please!

These sentiments are, sadly, not a new idea:

"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
-- Hermann Goering, before being sentenced to death at Nuremberg.
