Michelle Bachmann Resumes As A Controversial Figure

GOP Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota, a major embarrassment during the 2008 Presidential campaign, when she called for investigations of liberal Democrats in Congress as traitors, has now emerged again as a divisive figure who hurts the attempt to revive the Republican party for the future.

An evangelical Christian, she now says that the country must be armed to protect against a government that she sees as the enemy, and declares her image of the nation as one where "patriotic" Americans must be be ready for "revolution".  She ridicules the issue of climate change as well, and promotes an incendiary atmosphere of division, conspiracy and hate.

While freedom of speech stays as a bulwark of our democracy, it is alarming to see the kind of invective that she spews forth, and there is a need for more careful investigation of her rhetoric and her associations, just as she espoused the same thing against her "liberal" enemies last year.  In other words, what is good for the goose is good for the gander!
