Sometimes it is hard to distinguish parody from truth when it comes to Michele Bachmann. Recently a bunch of liberal sites were duped into believing that Michele Bachmann had said that the administration was going to force undocumented children in Americanized labor camps.
Its not that the statement was outrageous exactly, (although it certainly would be) its that it just "sounds" like something she would say. So everybody took it to be true.
Well, no sooner does that dustup blow over, then she says this on a radio talk show....
"Well, I will tell you from personal experience, we don't have enough foster parents now in the country for the kids in America. We certainly don't have enough foster parents for all of the illegal aliens that the president is trying to bring in right now." The progressive group People For the American Way posted the audio on its Right Wing Watch blog Wednesday afternoon.
Bachmann said that hospitals could "get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody," suggesting that the hospitals could do that research on undocumented children. "A little kid can't say no if they're a ward of the state," said Bachmann. "So here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say no. It's sick."
Bachmann has become the standard for GOP crazy. Pretty soon she will become a verb.
Boy, that Congressman really Bachmanned that statement.
Don't go there. Don't Bachmann that speech.
If you're going to Bachmann the press conference, then you are finished.
Only a matter of time.
