The 2012 election will be interesting. This past Monday, June 13th, the GOP show cased their potential 2012 candidates in a debate televised on CNN. After all the pomp and circumstance, it appears to be a race to the bottom. Sadly, it appears the Mormon is the only sane one in the bunch! 2012 election, interesting indeed!
Michele Bachmann – Appears to be the one that stole the show in the debate. She is the chair of the Tea Party Caucus in congress. She at least had the cojones to admit she was wrong for her historical faux pas on Concord. Contrast this to Sarah Palin, who doubles down on her idiotic statements on history. Her [Sarah Palin] staff, actually tried to get Wikipedia to rewrite history on Paul Revere’s ride to warn the patriots, not the British. Michele Bachmann is seen as part of lunatic fringe.
Before we get all whipped up in frenzy about Gov. Mitch Daniels and his potential bid for 2012, let’s explore Indiana’s political legacy, one I’m sure they would like to forget. Most people outside of Indiana are probably unaware of Indiana’s colorful political past. When one thinks of the Ku Klux Klan, you think of the deep south. The Ku Klux Klan has been America’s most dangerous and long standing domestic terrorist group.
And you thought minstrels were only in black face? Not so, between Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman, high tech minstrelsy is here, and boy, it’s hilarious. The Republican Minstrel show goes on ad hominem. You just never know what’s going to come out of their mouths. In all fairness to Sarah Palin, I think Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party darling, is the crazier of the two.
