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?

Be prepared, because what I'm about to tell you is going to completely explode your brain into a billion exploded pieces.
While discussing the stimulus package with President Obama, Republican legislators said something mean about the Democrats. And then Obama didn't acknowledge the slight, as though it didn't deserve to be acknowledged.
Which essentially is exactly the same thing as spitting on his middle finger and then ramming it into the Democratic congresspeople's faces. Except much worse…
The room burst into applause at the mention of congressional Democrats' alleged lack of bipartisan outreach. Obama did not come to their defense – a silence that many took to mean he acknowledged that lack of comity.
Really, that's the only way that you can interpret silence.
"I think the House Democrats have failed at bipartisanship, and I think he acknowledged that by what he didn't say as opposed to what he did," said Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.).
"He didn't say anything, but we got the message," said Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.).
Bachus and Mica are absolutely right. Obama didn't not say the opposite of those things that they think he implied by not implying their antitheses. So, really, the only way we can interpret this is to assume that Obama is totally on the Republican's side now. Yep.
Especially considering all the other damning things about House Democrats that he also didn't say. I can't even not write some of those non-things in this blog, if you know what I mean.
I wonder if he doesn't not kiss wife Michelle without that mouth of not his.
