We can hope that Michele Bachmann has cut her own throat with her idiotic McCarthyite witch hunt against liberal anti-Americans in Congress. Elwyn Tinklenberg has raised well over $400,000 since Bachmann’s intolerant fascist ravings were aired last week, and well over three times what had come in when Austin posted about Bachmann just yesterday.
Congress censured Joe McCarthy, but it took a long time to get to that point. Let’s act fast. There’s a petition drive to censure Bachmann. Go sign up if you’d like — it’s at least sending a message.
On the censure site, check out Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation, whom Bachmann’s blather made almost speechless on the Chris Matthews show.
