In an interview tonight with Chris Matthews of MSNBC on his Hardball show, Republican Representative Michele Bachmann, of Minnesota, called on journalists to investigate liberal members of Congress to determine who among them are “anti-American”. Yes, that’s the word she used. And yes, she was serious. You can probably find the video and transcript on Hardball’s website.
For debate is whether this woman is as batshit insane as I believe her to be. She has already determined that Barack Obama is anti-American, and she wants to know whether there are others of his ilk lurking in our halls of government.
She spoke, incidentally, as a surrogate for the McCain campaign. Maybe we need to take a second look at the notion of demonic possession inasmuch as the entire McCain campaign seems to be devoid of morality and decency. And defenders of Bachmann here?
