Bachmann, already something of a national embarrassment, went above and beyond the call of duty this week during an expansive radio interview. Apparently making polluters pay in order to build the clean energy economy is tantamount to tyranny and Bachmann, who refers to herself as a "foreign correspondent on enemy lines" wants her constituents to be "armed and dangerous" in order to fight President Obama's widely-supported plans on energy and global warming. To wit:
(Mind you, Bachmann is all for the current "energy tax" we have -- the one that sucks cash from your wallet in order to pad the pockets of Big Oil, Big Coal, and hostile foreign regimes around the world.)
And what are these so-called armaments she seeks to provide her constituents with? Two "boffo" talks by Chris Horner, an overblown blowhard global warming denier from one of the most notorious denialist operations of all time.
Not seen enough? Our friends at TPM have put together a little video of what they call the "Bachmann effect," or the "the face that launches a thousand dumbfounded looks," as Huffington Post called the Congresswoman.
