Anarchy in the USA

Michele Bachmann can talk as stupid and crazy as she wants to talk.  That’s her right as an American and her duty as a Republican.  But is it too much to ask that she provide angry wingnuts with a little adult supervision?  Apparently so.  Here she is at a weekend rally giving them permission to disobey the law:

“But mark my words, the American people aren’t gonna take this lying down,” Bachmann later said.  “We aren’t gonna play their game, we’re not gonna pay their taxes.  They want us to pay for this? Because we don’t have to.  We don’t have to.  We don’t have to follow a bill that isn’t law.  That’s not the American way, and that’s not what we’re going to do.”

She goes on to “explain” why the health care bill will be “illegitimate”, but her explanation makes no sense, and it makes my head hurt.  (Take an Extra Strength Tylenol and watch it yourself.)

Michele Bachmann is a very influential Republican these days.  She’s Sarah Palin without the funny accent.  And her irresponsible rhetoric is going to get more planes flown into federal buildings — or worse.
