US08: Wingnut Congresswoman sticks both feet in her mouth


I haven’t written a full analysis post on any of the US House races yet, but just wanted to share this: arch-conservative Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann from Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District calling Barack Obama “Anti-American” and getting torn to shreds by Chris Matthews for the trouble.

In the following 24 hours, her Democratic challenger Elwyn Tinklenberg (yes, that is a real name) raised a mind-boggling $450,000 in donations in response.
