• GOP Leaders Undermine Michele Bachmann's Undermining of the Census

    The 2010 census is, as we've learned, part of an insidious ACORN plot to count Americans using numbers. Brave Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has made it clear that she for one (1) will not fill out her census form in its entirety, so as to prevent the ACORNS from getting accurate information about the people of Minnesota, which is a hot commodity in Socialist circles.

    Tragically, it appears Bachmann's GOP colleagues aren't going to join her in this principled protest. In fact, some of them (traitors!) have nothing but criticism for our Joan of Arc of the census…

    Three House Republicans on the subcommittee overseeing the 2010 Census are asking Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) to reverse her decision to boycott the national population count, fearing others will follow her lead.

    “Boycotting the constitutionally mandated Census is illogical, illegal and not in the best interest of our country,” Reps. Patrick McHenry (N.C.), Lynn Westmoreland (Ga.) and John Mica (Fla.), members of the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census and National Achieves, said in a statement Wednesday.

    Sources say the GOP Members approached Bachmann privately over the past few weeks and asked her to stop the boycott. They decided to go public because Bachmann appeared unfazed by their request, according to a GOP aide.

    Damn straight she was unfazed. If something like a reasonable request from colleagues were to faze Michele Bachmann, what might she cave to next?

    Math? Logic? Sanity?
