It's not really fair to say Bachmann supporters are stupid though. She’s incredibly popular; especially outside of MN. She’s on the Sunday morning news shows all the time and on FOX even more. MB is a Rep. “star”, like it or not. She was tea party before there was a Tea Party and look how many folks have responded to that. My take is that she's “different” and folks seem to be drawn to that. People like her muck-raking and rabble-rousing. You can’t deny that she stirs the pot better than most anyone out there and that has created a swell that she continues to ride (possibly onto Summit Ave. or maybe DC?). Discussions like this are good though. Like EyeGuy said, people need to “get out and vote” if they want to see any change; and a well informed voter is the most effective voter.

Bachmann is a moron. It would take hours to catalogue all the stupid things she's said in the relatively short time she's been a "Rep star." It's axiomatic that people who vote for morons call their own intelligence into question.

She's on tv because she's a telegenic trainwreck, not because she has worthwhile things to say.

Well Said! I think Odin just volunteered himself for a write-in campaign! What district you are you in? This state has always been electing some unique individuals to office. How about it?

You can't generalize that all of her supporters are morons. Many of them might just be conservative thinking people who didn't like her (most likely) left wing liberal opponent and thus voted for the lesser of two evils, which is common in today's politics. Besides, if Albert Einstein was running as a communist who was going to socialize everything he could get his hands on and a monkey was running against him, trust me I'm voting for the monkey. That doesn't make me dumb, it makes me anti-communist.

In my experience, single-issue voters tend to be uninformed and misinformed morons, whether the issue is abortion, "socialism," national defense or any of the other issues simpletons fixate on to the exclusion of other criteria.

Legislators are tasked with voting on a host of different issues and choosing a representative just because he or she agrees with you on one issue, while turning a blind eye to that candidate's knowledge, intelligence, educational background, etc., or voting against a candidate because he or she doesn't agree with you on one issue, qualifications be damned, is the hallmark of the Hopelessly Stupid.

It's unfortunate that the monied elite can so easily manipulate stupid people into believing that raising the taxes of the rich amounts to socialism/communism. The propaganda peddlers at Fox "News" have created an army of stooges who actually believe the poor are primarily culpable for the economic problems of the middle class.

Morons tend to parrot buzzwords while lacking the knowledge to consider them in historical context. Interesting to speculate on how the current crop of know-nothing Teabaggers would've treated pols from the past.

Thomas Jefferson? You proposed that the wealthy should pay for the public education of the poor. Socialist! Can't vote for you.

Richard Nixon? You put forth a Family Assistance Plan that would've guaranteed income for poor families. Communist! Can't vote for you.

No, we'll vote for Michelle Bachmann, who famously said she found it an interesting coincidence that swine flu outbreaks happened during Obama's presidency and in 1976, when Carter was president. A Stupidity Two-fer, for the implication that the policies of those presidents had anything to do with the outbreaks, and the fact that she thought Carter was president in '76.

Bachmann, who said carbon dioxide was being falsely implicated in global warming, which she said was wrong because CD is only about 3% of atmospheric gases.

Bachmann, who said Iran was partitioning off part of Iraq to use as a terrorist training zone. Evidence? She don't need no stinkin' evidence! Like a lot of morons, she just knows what she knows.

Choosing a candidate based on a single issue is not the best way to go, I agree. In fact, Odin, I haven’t disagreed with you on anything. My point is simply that anger and outrage may be effective when you’re preaching to the choir, but not when you’re trying to influence anyone else. Starting off any statement by insulting someone virtually ensures that someone will disregard anything else you say after that. How does that incite change? It probably doesn’t. What it does better is make people defensive and dig in their heels; maybe over one issue. You raised some serious concerns and put out startling evidence that backs your compelling argument. But you can’t slap someone in the face and then ask them to listen to what you have to say. But that's just my 2c.

What I really want to say is...

PETER TORK HATES COMMUNISTS!



VOTE FOR THE MONKEY!

Very clever. That was not the Monkee I had in mind. However, Michael Nesmith has been a very successful businessman post-Monkees, so I'm sure he'd have some good ideas if he ever ran for office.

You seem to believe that people who'd vote for Bachmann, Palin, O'Donnell and other crap-flinging monkeys can be persuaded by evidence, facts, logic, etc. to change their political views. Have you ever seen that happen?

In my experience, most conservatives tend to filter reality through an ideological prism and if facts don't jibe with their opinions and skewed versions of reality, so much the worst for the facts.

The loony left is guilty of the same abdication. The failure of the professional left to give due consideration to the '65 Moynihan Report that examined the pathologies of matriarchal black families in America was as irresponsible and delusional and shameful as any of the failures of the nutjob right. The asinine canard that all cultures are equally worthy of respect has been a central tenet of the loony left for decades.

Non-political, low-informationl Indys decide elections now. They're generally not as stupid as Republicans but they don't care enough about politics to keep informed, so they tend to be susceptible to propaganda, which is why a lot of 'em believed Kerry disgraced himself in Vietnam and Bush was a war hero. They tend to go with whatever information imprints on their consciousness, true or not. The propagandists at Fox recognized that a long time ago and they've been shameless at taking advantage of it.

All these so-called outdoorsmen and outdoor advocacy groups are nothing more than little piglets lining up to suckle at the teat of the government trough. They want their portion of the nanny-state sugar-tit, and they couch their greed for tax dollars in terms such as "Legacy Amendment", and then along with their DFL benefactors, they embark on a massive ad campaign to fool you kneejerk Democrats into supporting legislation and constitutional amendments that do nothing more than increase taxes, increase the government's involvement in our lives, increase the government's control over our activities, and ultimately reductions in our liberty.

Don't buy this idiocy, sportsmen. Your sports are better served when liberty is served, and your freedom to engage in your outdoor activities is curtailed to the degree that government digs its hooks into us via law and taxation.

When the government - THIS GOVERNMENT, DOMINATED BY DFL LEGACY DINOSAURS - comes to you with proposals to increase taxes on ANYTHING, claiming it will benefit YOU at the expense of OTHER Minnesotans, you should run in the other direction. Those who do not should be ashamed of yourselves, and you should line up at the nanny-state sugar tit with the rest of the shameless piglets.

Michele Bachmann was right to oppose this government intrusion, as she is right to oppose ALL increased government intrusion.

Liberty and the constitution of this land have never had a more staunch believer and advocate than Michele Bachmann.

Thanks for offering yourself as Exhibit A of the reality-challenged. Ron Schara, Rob Drieslein of The Outdoor News, and other notable sportsmen have said Bachmann supported the Legacy Amendment but you obviously believe differently. Got an explanation for why they're all lying/mistaken? Is it a conspiracy against poor Michelle? (The reality-challenged tend to be big on conspiracy theories.)

As for the "nanny-state" and the protections/benefits it confers in exchange for taxes and the willingness to live according to the prevailing social contract, perhaps a rugged individualist like yourself would be happier living in Haiti or Somalia where your freedom and liberty will be as unlimited as your abilities to defend them. I think you'll find that life in a state of nature is, as Thomas Hobbes predicted, "nasty, brutish, solitary and short," but you'll undoubtedly consider that a small price to pay for being truly free.

My regards to the warlords.
