Michele Bachmann Catches a Break

Investigators have determined that Bill Sparkman, the census worker who was found dead with an anti-federal government message scrawled on his body, committed suicide. There’s some political news here: Coming as it did the day of the taxpayer march on Washington, days after Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) became the most prominent Republican to urge non-compliance with the census, it’s good news for conservatives that Sparkman’s death was not a politically-motivated homicide.

Because urging civil disobedience is tantamount to soliciting homicide..

Weigel is certainly earning his $oro$ bucks today! An outright lie about Dobbs in the morning, and now trying to spin this latest news to the Democrats' advantage.

In fact, what Weigel should be doing is offering an apology to Bachmann for being such a hack. Read what he did here. That post lists over a dozen others who tried to profit politically from a tragedy.

Do you ever stop and think, “Wait, I'm a fucking lunatic. Maybe I should stop and get help.” Nah, I doubt it.

You should seek help, though, and I don't mean the kind that prevents the satellites from reading your thoughts. Psychological help is what you need. Paranoid birther freak.

Demagoguing the census, and by extension census poll takers, is pretty dumb as civil disobedience measures go. Kinda like not participating in the census, and therefore not being counted, represented, etc…

Huh. Didn't realize that Bachmann had argued against being counted.

She's stated that she'll answer the number and ages of the people in her household. She's not going to answer the rest of it.
