Crazy in Minnesota: Rep. Michelle Bachmann

Rep. Michell Bachmann (R-MN) is doing it. Again. Absolute wingnut. And traitor?
In an interview last Saturday when asked about Obama's Cap & Trade Plan, had this to say:

BACHMANN: And really now in Washington, I’m a foreign correspondent in enemy lines. And I try to keep everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington. […]

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.

Does what she said make her treasonous? I would say yes, but it does squarely fall under Sedition.

Sedition (N)
1. Incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government. 2. any action in speech or writing promoting such discontent or rebellion. 3. Archaic, rebellious disorder.

If we rewound the clock one year, and made it the Bush presidency again (ugh) and a Democratic Representative said the same things, what would have happened? Not only in the Mainstream Media, but in the halls of Washington. All hell would've broken loose...and here we are, a crazy bitch from Minnesota inciting sedition against the Federal Government, and all we see is a blip on the radar screen. And really, over cap and trade? To protect the polluters? She would incite a revolution for pollution rights? C'mon lady.

I really hope our friends in Minnesota recall their crazy lady.
And in all seriousness, after a shooting in Pittsburgh yesterday claimed the lives of three police officers , we should be seriously looking at the virtual incitement of violence being instigated by people actually claiming to represent their constituents. The shooter in this attack:

Mr. Poplawski had supported Republican candidate John McCain in the presidential election and had "very spirited debates" about Democratic candidate Barack Obama, Mr. Vire said. Mr. Poplawski was opposed to Mr. Obama's election, which he thought would result in the loss of his rights, Mr. Vire said.

So, friends, I highly recommend the Dump Bachmann blog for reading the insanity.

Get rid of her!
