(Grand Old) Partying like it's 1954

Shorter--and slightly more coherent--Michelle Bachman (R-MN):


In case you misssed it, here's Rep. Bachman's breathtaking turn on Hardball, edited for time and inanity, though not content:
Matthews: How many Congresspeople you serve with -- I mean, there's 435 members of Congress --

Bachmann: -- well right now --

Matthews: -- how many are anti-American in that Congress right now that you serve with?

Bachmann: You'd have to ask them, Chris, I'm focusing on Barack Obama and the people he's been associated with --

Matthews: But do you suspect that a lot of the people you serve with --

Bachmann: -- and I'm very worried about their anti-American nature.

Matthews: Well, he's the United States Senator from Illinois, he's one of the people you suspect as being anti-American. How many people in the Congress of the United States do you think are anti-American? You've already suspected Barack Obama. Is he alone, or are there others?


Bachmann: I would say, what I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look -- I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America. I think the people would love to see an expose like that.
Yes, if you were not so mesmerized by the sight of Sen. McCarthy Rep. Bachmann hurling herself over the edge into an abyss of batshit crazy on national television, you heard her right: the membership of the United States Congress--including the Democratic presidential nominee--should be investigated for anti-Americanism in its ranks. It's the sort of thing we've seen trickling out from campaign rallys and public appearances for weeks--except infinitely worse.

How often have we heard that we can't blame the McCain campaign for "isolated supporters" voicing extremist views? This is an elected representative and member of the national party.

News flash: We just left rally attendees yelling "traitor" in the friends.

No professionalism, no truth and, at its fundamental core, at long last, no decency.
