Quote of the Week: Ann Coulter-like Congress critter channels Joe McCarthy

If you ever wondered what would happen if anyone would be dumb enough to ever actually vote for rightwing hatemonger Ann Coulter we just need to look at the example of Minnesota rightwing Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

She is really out there, and she showed that on a recent episode of "Hardball with Chris Matthews" where she voiced the McCain campaign strategy that Sen. Barack Obama is somehow "un-American" because he doesn't share her extremist views. Unfortunately, her view is held by too many people who somehow believe if you don't agree with them you are un-American.

Bachmann apparently wants to bring back the Committee on Un-American Activities that made Red-baiter Joe McCarthy infamous. Apparently, Bachmann also worships the disgraced Senator just like Coulter does.

Bachmann has tried to deny the comments and blame it on the media because it may cost her the election. This Quote of the Week is dedicated to Michele M. Bachmann

"Absolutely. I'm very concerned that he may have anti-American views. That's what the American people are concerned about. That's why they want to know what his answers are. That's why Joe the plumber has figured so highly in the last few days."

"What 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 people would love to see an expose like that."

Hopefully, she goes down in flames. She pretty much had her race in the bag until she opened her big fat mouth. Her opponent, Tinklenberg, had a nice addition to her campaign after that.

I hope you're right, friend. It's kind of sad this is what it will take. She has said worse things in the past, but people are just now realizing how extreme she is. She should write a book and be a pundit; the rightwing extremists will love her like they do Coulter. They will condemn her hateful remarks in public and privately cheer her.

The NRCC cut her off.
