She should either produce hard evidence or apologize to Rep. Keith Ellison. Refusal to do either should lead to censure.

I can live with one bomb-tossing congressperson. It's much harder to think that a majority in 1/8 of our state don't have a problem with this sort of thing.

Mz. Bachmann, haven't you done enough. Have you no sense of decency, mam? At long last, have you no sense of decency?

After trailing well behind most of the other major metropolitan newspapers in the country, the Strib editorial board finally sticks a toe in the water and boldly calls out the hometown gal.

...Something it should have had the intestinal fortitude to do months ago, as one outrageous Bachmannia pronoucement, slander or falsehood piled up on top of another.

Bachman isn't really extreme anymore. She is a typical right wing republican. Her views of hate are mainstream GOP nowdays.

Bachmann also needs to apologize to the residents of the 6th district. She has created an embarrassment of such magnitude that we are now considered the laughingstock of this country for putting her in office.

What was she thinking? Does she think before she speaks? And worst of all, why do people believe her and support her?

Michele Bachmann does everything we teach our children not to do, yet where is a single other GOP person from the state of Minnesota to call her out for her actions?

Bachmann owes the 6th Congressional District an apology for not ever representing the district and making our District a laughing stock throughout the United States.

As a Christian, Michele Bachmann is an embarassment to the rest of us. Her living a hate filled life is against everything God teaches. She is Queen Hypocrite.
