    U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann had some choice words for a recently passed $26 billion bill meant to aid states hit hard by the economic downturn.

    "Taxpayer money will essentially be laundered through the public employee unions, and spent to reelect those same Democrats this fall," Bachmann said on the Aug. 10 episode of FOX News's Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano.

    The next day, she clarified her point on another FOX News program, saying, "Quite literally what will happen is this money will be shifted over to public employee unions. The unions will skim off the top; they'll put a good portion of that into political action committees."

      •  There's no point in making comparisons (0+ / 0-)

        That just legitimizes her to the faithful, no matter how asinine her claims.

        Just address whatever comes spewing out of her gobhole head on.


        "Really Michele? You think money that will keep 2800 teachers from joining the ranks of the unemployed is a funnel for unions to back the 'Democrat's' party? You're that cynical? That's the type of person you are?"

        ...and so on. Repeat as necessary.
