The patient is clearly a Republican.
Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) says it has not escaped
Democrats what the cost of gasoline and loss of jobs are doing to the
“This is their agenda,” Bachmann states bluntly. “I know it is hard to
believe, it’s hard to fathom — but this is ‘mission accomplished’ for
them,” she asserts. “They want Americans to take transit and move to
the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live
in tenements, [and] take light rail to their government jobs. That’s
their vision for America.”
Bachmann predicts gasoline will rise above $5 a gallon if Barack Obama is elected president.
Now, here’s my question: Does she really believe the bullshit she’s spewing?
I mean, really. Live in tenements and take light rail to their government jobs? That’s the Democratic vision for America? When was the last time you saw that in the party platform?
Now, when you say that Republicans want to turn back the clock to the Middle Ages, control all uteri in the country, destroy what’s left of pristine environment for a few drops of oil, ignore anthropogenic climate change, keep health care a privilege of the elite, shred the Bill of Rights (except #2!), let the poor starve, start pointless and unwinnable wars, and engage in massive transfers of wealth from the lower to the upper classes, that’s not lying. Hell, that’s not even hyperbole. Those are their positions on science/sex ed, reproductive freedom, ANWR drilling, global warming, health insurance, the Constitution, wages and general welfare, “national security,” and tax policy. This is what they do. Clearly, I could go on. This is not some hidden agenda–these motherfuckers brag about it. I can’t find a single instance of a Democrat advocating forced migration to the “inner cities,” massive new light rail construction, or mandatory government jobs for everyone.
But does she really believe it? I know a lot of the rank-and-file do. They’ll believe any crazy-ass conspiracy you put in front of them. Bill and Hillary Clinton had Vince Foster and 6,492 other people murdered to cover up Bill’s cocaine dealing with Pablo Escobar and Hillary’s lesbian affair with the Roswell aliens? DAMN RIGHT! The lack of evidence is just further proof that it’s true! (Oh, if you don’t believe that they’ll fall for any fucking nutty conspiracy around, check thecomments to this newspaper article. You’ll fuckin’ weep to see it.) If she believes this shit, she has no business making decisions for anyone, and should be confined to a sanatorium until she gets better–if she can. If she doesn’t believe it, then she’s a lying fucking weasel who is just trying to whip up the rubes with some of the stupidest fucking propaganda ever. Either way, she doesn’t deserve to be a representative for anyone.
Rep. Bachmann is right about one thing, though. Gas will go to five bucks a gallon. But it won’t matter who’s president.
