Michele Bachmann wanted to make sure ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) did not receive any fund related to home foreclosure relief. So she pushed through an amendment in the House Financial Services committee that would disallow funding to any organaztion facing federal indictment for voter fraud.

Because she thinks ACORN is facing such an indictment. Because she has been saying that they are. But they are not. Weren’t. And won’t.

Her fellow representatives (especially the Dems) must have had fun with this one.

“Oh, righ, Bachmann wants this amendment but she doesn’t get that …”

“I know,” interrupting. “Just shut up and let her think…”

“Right. Got it..”

    I can only hope that she gets her amendment and some right wing group ends up in the spotlight

    Does she have no handlers?

    You’d think the republican party would have sent some people to watch over her. I’m no fan of the republicans but there have to be people in the party smart enough that feel the pain when she speaks. I mean this is beyond embarrassing.
