Its Michele again

Sarah has her death panels, and now Michele rants about sex clinics. These wingers never lose enthusiasm for lying, do they?

"And as a matter of fact, the bill goes on to say what’s going to go on — comprehensive primary health services, physicals, treatment of minor acute medical conditions, referrals to follow-up for specialty care — is that abortion? Does that mean that someone’s 13 year-old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back and go home on the school bus that night? Mom and dad are never the wiser."

The nonpartisan fact checking organization Politifact, rates this one Pants on Fire."

Honestly Mule Breath, does anyone take this chick any more seriously than, say, Sheila Jackson Lee?

How about it, does Sheila actually represent the views of you and most other liberals?

Both sides have people everyone would rather just shut up.

She sure as hell knows where the camera is at.

Unfortunately AD, people do take Bachmann seriously. The wingnutty rhetoric spouted by that segment of the right is far too often latched upon and nurtured by people lacking your sophistication. There is an entire subculture predisposed to contrived, egoistic, faux patriotic chauvinism, and they literally hate anybody different than themselves. Those of Bachmann's ilk are pouring fuel on those fires... just for the votes.

If you wish to compare someone on the left who has done much the same, try Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, or some of the other black race baiters. Sheila Jackson Lee is a poor comparison.

Certainly Ms. Lee doesn't do well representing Liberals... but at least she has the good grace not to open her mouth quite so often, or spew such evil venom as we have seen recently from the right. Her garbage is more likely to be simple stupidity instead of outright lies. Neither does her garbage generally make it out of Texas, so our lovely Ms. Lee fails to measure up as an an evil left wing nut.

You said: "you and most other liberals"

in case you failed to follow my hat tip, the normally right wing blog Little Green Footballs provided the source for my post. The more moderate conservatives are starting to recognize the deleterious effect rhetoric like Bachmann's is having on reasonable debate, and they are speaking up.

So just because I'm to the left of you makes me no more a Liberal than you. The nuts gravitate toward the poles, yet there remains a place in the middle for moderates. That hat fits me better.

If I'm not making my position clear enough, we can discuss it over beer soon enough. I have rafts of documentation I'd just love to show you.

Cheers! ;)

Damn Bachmann is a delight! Where would the blogsphere be without her?

You gotta admit, though... she is kinda hot.

Maybe she just needs to get laid. ;)
