I know I asked you to shut your fucking piehole a few months ago, but I'm thinking that was a mistake. And you didn't listen anyway. You did however, answer my rhetorical question about whether or not your batshit crazy statements ever cease. That would be a big, fat no.
And of course, after being called on your batshit crazy statements about Barack Obama being anti-American and calling for McCarthyesque investigations into the patriotism of the liberal members of Congress, you come back and say, "Chris Matthews made me say it!" Typical. And disappointing. If you're going to make outlandish accusations and propositions, you should really own them. How can anyone respect your convictions when, if pressed, you blame the media for making you say something? It's not like it was a passing thing. Sure, Matthews used the term "anti-American" first, but you took that hand off and ran the length of the field for the touchdown.
Have all of her crazy statements added up yet to make the voters in her district realize she needs to be voted out? You'd think so, wouldn't you? There was a time when I would have absolute faith in my fellow Minnesotans to boot her ass out of office, but that faith has been severely eroded over the past several years. It's bad enough that we made headlines (and SNL!) with the Crazy Lady at the McCain rally in Lakeville. At least that can be pish-poshed as a single loon. Now we've got Bachmann continuing her campaign of embarrassment.
I'll hold off on my weeping for humanity for a bit, though. Bachmann's opponent, DFLer Elwyn Tinklenberg, has been raking in the contributions since Bachmann spouted her ridiculousness. Perhaps this is the final nail in her coffin; her equivalent of Rudy Boschwitz's "Paul Wellstone is a bad Jew," letter in 1990.
Fuck. November 4 can't come fast enough.
Switching gears: in good Minnesota-related news, my beloved, bowl-eligible football Gophers cracked the AP and USA Today Top 25 for the first time in three years. And without even playing a game this week!
