This woman is horrible (and rabidly anti-gay). She's the Congressperson from Minnesota's 6th district, which includes the far northern suburbs of the Twin Cities and St. Cloud.
Today I received this email from Erin Hill at ActBlue (on the subject of "Bachmannia").
We all remember Republican Michelle Bachmann from the 2008 campaign, when she demanded that the press investigate the patriotism of all liberals in Congress.
Less than 6 months after your ActBlue contributions helped Elywn Tinklenberg mount an unprecedented challenge to Bachmann's fear-mongering, she apparently feels unassailable enough to begin dispensing her own brand of "patriotism."
In the past week, Bachmann has called for revolution in the United States, referred to the institutions of American government as "enemy lines," blamed climate change on "solar flares, etc.," and told her constituents that she wants them to be "armed and dangerous."
It's been almost half a year since the American people delivered their verdict on GOP fear-mongering and incompetence, but Bachmann is still trying to divide us when we should be united, and distract us when we should be focused on solving the problems that confront us all.
Your $15 recurring donation to ActBlue will ensure that we're there in 2010 to help show Bachmann the door and restore some dignity to her seat in Congress.
From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.
From the Wikipedia link:
In support of a constitutional amendment she proposed to ban same-sex marriage, Bachmann said that the gay community was specifically targeting children and that "our children...are the prize for this community." Bachmann has said that people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender suffer from "sexual dysfunction" and "sexual identity disorders."
This woman is "sick." She's gotta go.
