Dispatches from the Creation Wars

In addition to all the other neighborhoods she visits in the loonisphere, Michelle Bachmann appears to be on the birther bandwagon as well. When a congressman from Hawaii offered a routine resolution celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii becoming a state – a resolution that noted that the state was the birthplace of the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama – Bachmann rose to block the resolution.

Her claim is that a quorum is not present, which is silly. Such resolutions are passed virtually every day in the House with virtually no one present, passed by unanimous consent with maybe 3 or 4 people in the entire chamber. They’re passed as a purely perfunctory matter without anyone ever objecting to them. Until now. What the hell, she’s got every other form of insanity, why not that one too? Video below the fold.
