GOP gets two for the price of one
Tea Party Congressional darling Michelle Bachmann (R-Mn.), is taking liberties tonight that I've never seen a phantom American Socialist, Communist, or even a real Greenie take. She's an official Republican, not a (TP-Mn.) and yet she gets to deliver the two in the one-two punch from Republicans as the minority response to President Obama's 2011 State of the Union address, Tea Party style.
Isn't this delicious. "I'm a Republican yet I'm speaking for a wholly different party altogether."
As Scooby-Do would say, "Rrrr-rrr-rrrr-wha?"
While Bachmann has done a lovely job of pinning joblessness on government, she ought to look to not only her own backers, and the muddled Tea Party's own moneybag funders to pinpoint that place where joblessness is most culpable: big business. Big business is wholly beholden to quarterly shareholders. That's why our big business leaders have stripped ordinary Americans of jobs and shipped them offshore to workers who will schlepp round the clock for pennies on the dollars.
Don't get me started on Bachmann pointing to the government as the bulwark against energy in America.
If Bachmann really wants progress in the country, she'll begin with a stone cold hard look in the mirror, asking herself if she would recognize honesty if it landed on her lap. Her particular brand of schizophrenic party allegiance and a kind of double-speak to rival George Orwell's 1984 lexicon is something to behold. It's like a televised version of Hieronymous Bosch's "The Garden of Earthly Delights" but without the millennial context. In a tweet its: #bunk.
