The wingnuttiest wingnut of them all rides again! Congresscritter Michele Bachmann (R-Cloud Cuckoo Land) was in Colorado yesterday telling fellow reactionaries to give their all to oppose health care reform:
"What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing," said Bachmann. "This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass."
[...]Bachmann also denounced a system under which some Americans pay half their income in taxes: "It's nothing more than slavery."
Notwithstanding the offensiveness of Bachmann's comparison of tax rates on the richest Americans with slavery, I have only this to say about her "slit our wrists" comment:
PLEASE!--I'll even lend you a knife.
Thanks also to TPM.
