  •  Magnifico is correct. The entire paragraph is: (7+ / 0-)
    Bachmann’s response is almost a liberal parody of how conservatives try to divide and conquer on the issue of government spending. Asked about potential cuts to hundreds of billions in agriculture subsidies, her response is, “you know who doesn’t deserve government money? Black people!” The comedy doesn’t stop there, though. Bachmann’s own family farm has received $260,000 in farm subsidies over the years.
    •  Government subsidies are okay and common (4+ / 0-)

      If you are a white Christian ruralite.  And according to this demographic, they are apparently okay for big corporations too.  

      The whole "no handouts" thing is specifically reserved for supposedly lazy Blacks and supposedly illegal Mexicans.  And sometimes gays with AIDS, children needing healthcare, women wanting to go to Planned Parenthood, etc.

      The only place where Republicans are anywhere close to responsible is in the dictionary.
