I almost fell out of my chair yesterday when I read that, while addressing a “free market think tank,” US Representative and Joker impersonator Michele Bachmann said something I agreed with. Fortunately, she reverted to form, finishing the almost reasonable sentence with talk about becoming blood brothers, before really making with the crazy. My shaken worldview was restored by passages like:
‘“This is slavery,” Bachmann said after claiming many Americans pay half their income to taxes. “It’s nothing more than slavery.”’
I’ve got to think the scenario she describes is at least in the area of 50% more than slavery. But hey, she’s only a member of the United States congress. I suppose I shouldn’t expect too much from a woman who’s waiting for a call from God to tell her whether or not she should run for President.
