“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.”
Now I’ll reset the time machine to October of 2008 when Bachmann told Chris Matthews in an interview that she’d like the media to investigate the “anti-American” activities of members of Congress. “I think people would love to see an exposé like that,” she claimed.
Come, let’s return to the present. This week, Ms. Bachmann announced that she plans to run for the chairmanship of the House Republican Conference—and that she wants to start a “Constitutional Conservative Caucus” to “stop any bill from passing” that she deems unconstitutional, such as “a stimulus or a government takeover of health care.”
Oh my aching head! I can only begin to imagine some of the bills this woman will consider to be unconstitutional. Anyone got some extra-strength Excedrin?
I’ll leave you with a poem I wrote about Bachmann back in March of 2009:
Michelle Bachman: Armed and Dangerous
By Elaine Magliaro
She’s wild-eyed and packin’ heat—
One congressgal who’s not so sweet.
She isn’t your typical Minnesotan.
She’s militant…warlike—and totin’
A derringer in her Gucci bag…
A Smith and Wesson—40 mag,
A semi-automatic Colt.
She thinks it’s time for an armed revolt.
She’s out inciting insurrection!
(How did this crank win re-election?????)
She says she’s ready for a revolution!
I say she’s ready for an institution—
An asylum for the politically inane
With padded cells. This gal’s insane!
She’s crazy. She’s possessed. She’s mad!
There’s one last thing I’ll like to add:
She needs a good psychiatrist—
Or, better still, an exorcist!
