    2010 class of Republicans are too timid?"

    That's the question I always ask when I look at these polls. Who are the 7% of self described liberals who support Michelle Bachmann over Obama? Who are the 7% who support the "superCongress" cutting social programs while reducing taxes on the 1%? It's funny that it's almost always about 7%.

    I usually hear two explanations: they're either Blue Dogs or right wing trolls who lie about being liberal to the pollster. I lean more toward option B simply because I can't see how any non-insane person can side with Bachmann against any Democrat.
