I saw one of these on the back of a gas-guzzler on US 1 this afternoon.
Couldn’t tell if it was for real or ironic, but I’m going to guess real.
Is she the Republican George McGovern, or the Tea Party Barry Goldwater?
Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann raised more than $2 million through her campaign fund and political action committee over the first 90 days of 2011

2010: Still relevant, but the whole things seems a little quaint now that Obama has decided to govern as a Reagan Republican; that may be saner than a DeMint Republican, but are those the only choices?
I'd say more, but it's wall-to-wall meetings today.
U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd of supporters [last week] that the country needs to address a “militant terrorist situation” that has allowed Islamic religious law to take hold in some American cities.
So says the AP, in Angle: Muslim law taking hold in parts of US.
According to the AP, Ms. Angle was referring to … wait for it.. Dearborn, Michigan.
Dearborn, Michigan? Controlled by militant terrorist Muslims who want to deport all the other citizens of the town?
A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations was really quite kind about it all, settling for calling Angle's demagoguery “incoherent bigotry”. How about, maybe, several sandwiches short of a picnic? Certifiable? Raving delusional? Unfit for public office? Yet Angle is leading in some polls in Nevada.
Time to dust off one of my favorite Thomas Jefferson quotes:
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.
Then again, maybe Sen. Angle would be the retribution.
