I'm about as fond of Michele Bachmann as I am of slimy okra and Sarah Palin, but today she and the rest of her cohorts might just have placed themselves at the very top of my all-time scumbags list.
While the issue of Health Care Reform was gaining a little momentum with a couple of key endorsements, a Bachmann led Tea-Party event was grabbing headlines in the country's Capitol. Joining her on the stage were other noted Republicans such as Minority Leader John Boehner (OH), Minority Whip Eric Cantor (VA), Roy Blunt (MO), Jeb Hensarling (TX), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA), Michele Bachmann (MN) Virginia Foxx (NC), Ginny Brown-Waite (FL), Jean Schmidt (OH), Sue Myrick (NC), and many more.
As these notables rubbed elbows with about 2,000 wingnuts the signs and flags were waving. Including this one:
From the Daily Kos.
Our elected officials...our governmental elite...sponsoring and rallying at such an event.
As if it isn't bad enough that Glenn Beck and FOX News sees fit to exploit the tragic events of September 11th to boost their own ratings we now have those straight from the halls of government participating with those who have no morality or integrity in the streets of Washington, D.C. and not one objection from any of them.
