On Countdown! The “Best Petard To Be Hoist Upon Later Award!”
Michele Bachmann, who represents the district that is, much to my chagrin, just a few blocks from where I live, has been calling for people to give the upcoming decadal census a pass, is a person of amazing moral integrity. You see she considers the census to be an evil plot by Acorn to facilitate the rounding up and internment of Christians (or something). However, as I’m sure she knows as a member of Congress the census is also the instrument our benevolent government (benevolent now that the Dems are in power) uses to figure out how many members of congress each state gets and what districts get to clove into two (as population goes up) or disappear (as population goes down).
Yes indeed, if Bachmann gets her way, her own congressional district will vaporize.
