A special kind of stupid

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's (R-Minn.) McCarthesque witch hunt of Muslims has now turned ugly. If you recall she and four other conservative congressmen have called for investigations of possible Muslim infiltration of the government by the Muslim Brotherhood. The other four Congressmen were Trent Franks, R-Ariz., Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, Thomas Rooney, R-Fla., and Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga. No surprise they're all Republicans.

Now it's become dangerous. There has been allegedly a threat made to one of Bachmann's targets, Huma Abedin, aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Ms. Abedin was specifically named. Anderson Cooper of CNN debunked this nonsense. In essence, Cong. Bachmann connects Ms. Abedin's deceased father with a possible supporter of the Muslim Brotherhod. It's time to call the Republicans out. There are some racists in the party and I've previously written about this. Ms Abedin is no Muslim extremist. How absurd is this? Ms. Abedin is married to former Congressman Anthony Weiner who is Jewish.

I'm kind of tired of Cong. Bachmann's stupidity. (Here are ten crazy comments from Bachmann.) Look this woman is not a member of the fringe of the Republican Party. She ran for President. And she did well enough to win the Ames Iowa Presidential Straw Poll. We need Jon Stewart to show how crazy and stupid Cong. Bachmann is. Here's a funny piece where Stewart easily links Cong. Bachmann to Islamic terrorists. Maybe we should investigate Bachmann.
