Check out Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann on Hardball accusing Obama and other Democrats of potentially being anti-American:

This insane asylum escapee is in a tight re-election contest against Democrat El Tinklenberg, and you can help out him out here.

[UPDATE]: And there’s one other challenger in the Midwest who I’d love to see pull out a win. Michael Montagano is within 5 percentage points of Mark Souder (IN-3), who won 69% of the vote in 2004. Souder is one of the worst members of Congress when it comes to drug policy. Montagano’s ActBlue page is here.

My name is insane bachman, and i want your votes in November. I know you are all just as crazy and insane as i am, and therefore, you must believe me when i tell you that if you vote for me the rapture will come and all the evil liberal people will be swallowed up by the earth. If you don’t vote for me, the forces of evil will overcome all that is good and Christian and destroy all of you.

@1
Holy shit. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about what some of those people will do if Obama wins.

4. Two Dogs spews:

@3 Exactly. The battle will begin after the election. When Clinton was in office the militias were ascendant, and, well, we all saw what happened in Oklahoma City. This time we will all need to be more vigilant.

5. Michael spews:

We’ve already had two politically motivated shootings, one in Arkansas that killed the Arkansas Democratic chair and the Unitarian church shooting in Knoxville TN.

The roots of Oklahoma City bombing start with Gordon Kahl, the Posse Comitatus and the farm crisis in the early 80′s. The militia movement added fuel to the fire as well.

It’s going to get ugly.

Democrats being “potentially” Anti-American? Hell they make Castro look like a yankee doodle dandy!

8. correctnotright spews:

@6: Yup – the crazies are even out here in Washington. Bachmann is dangerously stupid. She has no idea of the history of this country and how what she is saying puts her in the Joe McCarthy vein of American politics.
Investigate all the democrats in congress? Is she even aware of what that statment sounds like and the implications of someone in a democracy saying something like that? She would feel right at home with the KGB, the Stasi and Mao’s cultural revolution to name a few of the “leftists” she would like to pal around with…

So ashamed that this woman is from my home state… please know that she is considered a freak in most of MN as well; she doesn’t represent us at all.

Patriotism is truly the last refuge of the scoundrels.

11. SeattleDan spews:

And as Ambrose Bierce corrected Dr. Johnson, correctnotright, it is actually the first refuge.

I sent $50 to her opponent as a result of seeing her fascist yakking with Tweety. Let’s hope she goes into oblivion on 11/4. Almost surprised McCain didn’t picker her as VP.

Bachmann has an interesting bio. She was raised in a Democratic family and turned Republican in college. Must’ve run with a bad crowd for that to happen. Basically all you need to know about her is that she’s a hard-core right-to-lifer who married another hard-core right-to-lifer and the two of them got their jollies by picketing abortion clinics together. I guess that’s Republicans’ idea of a date. She graduated from Oral Roberts University’s law school and worked for the IRS prosecuting tax cheats — not something you’d ordinarily expect to find a rightwing Republican doing (usually they’re on the other side of the defendant’s table). Right-to-life and overturning Roe v. Wade is what this woman is all about. Her husband, the son of an Iowa dairy farmer (they were married on the family farm), runs a “Christian counseling service,” whatever that is. Together, they’ve been foster parents to 23 teenage girls (presumably not all at the same time). Wonder if he’s been fucking any of ‘em … hey, I’m not saying he did, I’m just curious that’s all. You know how Republicans are, they don’t like to fuck their own wives, they prefer goats, horses, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of ‘em jerk off into the milk cans on those Iowa dairy farms. Hey, I’m not accusing anyone of anything, I’m just wonderin’ that’s all.

@1 One of those wingers managed to be doubly wrong: “I don’t like the fact that he thinks us white people are trash… because we’re not!” Ergo, Obama doesn’t think they’re trash, even though they are.
