In Do Erik Paulsen, John Kline and Brian Davis Agree with Michele Bachmann?, our friend the Blue Man asks:
Michele Bachmann has been the poster woman for conservatism in Minnesota.
Her insane comments on Hardball and Larry King [have] ignited a progressive groundswell in Minnesota.
We need to ask some of Bachmann's closest friends where they stand on this.
I hope the press and voters begin to ask Norm Coleman, Erik Paulsen, Brian Davis, and John Kline what they think of Congresswoman Bachmann's comments.
We're not sure we'd call Bachmann's comments "insane" since we're not a psychiatrist, though we do find her remarks to be uncivil and hurtful to the democratic process. Upon receiving her endorsement for his congressional bid, Republican Brian Davis said:
"It's an honor to receive the support of Congresswoman Bachmann," Davis said of Bachmann. "She is a dynamic leader for Minnesota and for our conservative causes. I value her leadership and advice, her principles and energy. I look forward to serving with her in the 111th Congress."
Inquiring minds want to know if Davis will be following Bachmann's lead on this malarky.
The Star Tribune looks into the firestorm sparks by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in Bachmann on TV questions Obama's patriotism, an article subheaded:
The congresswoman says she's also concerned that others in Congress may share "anti-American views."
Does Davis value Bachmann's performance on Hardball and share her sentiments?
Those who want more tempered leadership in Congress should given some change to El Tinklenberg's campaign (contributing via MN-06: Time to kick Michelle Bachman out of Congress, the ActBlue page set up by set up by Bloggers against new Mccarthyism in response to Bachmann's rant is a good place to start).
