"The heck with bipartisanship. Viva la revoluciĆ³n!"

We're in agreement. Though I don't think Ms.Bachmann or Mr.Burbach would like the outcome I have in mind.

Bipartisanship is when one person has a great idea, another has a terrible idea, and the latter demands the former compromises least half way toward the terrible.
It seems the only real problem you all have with Bachmann is that she doesn't agree with you & she takes a strong stand against you. Get over it!
Before you sanctimoniously ridicule her for redundant phrases, like the one on the Bennett show, or even the "You be da man" bit... Just remember who put in the VP seat!

Even Obama thought there were 60 states at one point.

The revelution will start when your annual electric bill goes up by $3000 dollars.
I heard this amount discussed on c-span last week. This cap and trade TAX should be outlined BEFORE anything gets passed.

Bachmannalia, def.

A compulsive obsessive disorder created by exterme anti life and normal marriage proponents, even though the Representative is in a class of about 36 representatives standing sometimes alone against the most socially destructive socialist forces in our country's history, the adhominen and pseudonymous attacks keep flowing from the extreme left, The representative was elected by a majority of the 6th district who are now also being attacked by the "looney left" foor not being in compliance with the progressive left/
Representative Bachmann is fully appreciated by her constituents, the fury of hate from the left only "assures her constituents of how right on the mark Mrs. Bachmann really is.
