Oh Sh*t, They're Coming For Us
Republican Congresswoman Michelle Bachman of Minnesota is itching for a fight over the new Obama tax plan, and she has a great idea about how to get her followers at Minnesota's better insane asylums to lock and load: appeal to their love of (1) Thomas Jefferson and (2) danger. Here's what she said on some dumb AM radio show today (Hint to younger readers: AM radio is kind of like an iPod that only plays the Angry Jesus podcast. It is also a potent force for right-wing politics and can be live-streamed on most computers with a decent broadband connection):
"I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us 'having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,' and the people -- we the people -- are going to have to fight back hard if we're not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States."
Sh*t, y'all, they're coming for us. If these hillbillies she's appealing to are half as mad about this energy tax as they are about Obama's fancy-pants pronunciation of Pakistan, we're all well and surely doomed. After all, it's really the small things, like Napoleon or British tea bags, that lead to bloody revolution.
