George Will Is Gaga Over Michele Bachmann
And who isn't? They are celebrating in Minnesota as our favorite authority on climate change, George Will of the Washington Post embraces Michele Bachmann. He does note that "She is, however, a petite pistol that occasionally goes off half-cocked." but otherwise says that "her supposed excesses are, however, not merely defensible, they are admirable."
Sharing a state with Al Franken, they should probably rename Minnesota Comedy Central. We round up some of our favorite Michele Bachmann posts:
"This is an issue of science over fads and fashions," she told an interviewer, and called any human connection to global warming "voodoo, nonsense, hokum, a hoax." She continued: "Fluorescent bulbs are more polluting because of their mercury content. We are working on a light bulb bill. If the Democrats can hose up a light bulb, don't trust them with the country."
Michele Bachman Watch: She is Responsible for Lower Gas Prices
"We saw gas at $2.04 today. That was my goal, when I started this year I wanted to get gas below two dollars a gallon and we are almost there..."
Michele describes her recent flight over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and how she found it to be just the most "perfect place on the planet to drill."
"Some suggestions are that perhaps we would see an enhancement of wildlife expansion because of the warmth of the pipeline," she said. [...] The [existing Alaska pipeline] pipeline has now become a meeting ground and "coffee klatch" for the caribou, she said.
I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us, having a revolution every now and then is a good thing, and the people -- we the people -- are going to have to fight back hard if we're not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.
"[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she's just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet -- we didn't need Nancy Pelosi to do that."

Quote of the Day: Michele Bachmann on the Secret Green Agenda
"This is their agenda," Bachmann states bluntly. "I know it is hard to believe, it's hard to fathom -- but this is 'mission accomplished' for them," she asserts. "They want Americans to take transit and move to the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live in tenements, [and] take light rail to their government jobs. That's their vision for America."
