Wingnut Idiocy on Parade

Abby Zimet

If you didn't want to watch all of last night's GOP debate - and who could blame you? - a few minutes of Michele Bachmann will capture the clueless wackadoodle incoherence of the event. Bachmann said we shouldn't have any taxes except of course we need some for the government, even though bad guys run it.

"Barack Obama seems to think that when we earn money, it belongs to him and we're lucky just to keep a little bit of it. I don't think that at all. I think that when people make money, it's their money."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
