I don't say this lightly, this is a term that was thrown around WAY too loosely during the Bush Administration, but Michele Bachmann is downright un-American. Mrs. Bachmannn popped up on a lot of peoples radar when she called on the press to investigate members of congress (mainly the liberal ones, including now-President Obama) for anti-Americanism back in the later stages of the '08 Presidential campaign. She's a big fan of "intelligent" design, tried to repeal the nationwide phase-out of incandescent bulbs, and has never met a shelf she didn't want to drill. She's homophobic, xenophobic, and managed to outdo herself recently by calling herself a "foreign correspondent on enemy lines". The enemies being Democrats, "behind enemy lines" being our nations capital, Washington, DC. To top it all off, she wants people "armed and dangerous" over President Obama's proposed energy tax. Soak that in- a U.S. Congresswoman has called for armed insurrection against the government in opposition to a tax on pollution. Treason is defined as "a citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the parent nation". Mrs. Bachmann wants her constituents to be ready to wage war on the government. Michele Bachmann is the textbook definition of a traitor. It's shameful. Minnesota, no America, needs to dump Michele Bachmann.
