The BS continues.
But I still have time to briefly point out what is going on with Bachmann.
Bachamann wants her constituents to believe that if they fill out any details at all on the US census form that they will some day be rounded up and tossed in a POW camp. The reason she wants this idea out there is simple. She is linking a fearful thing, a thing that if true we really should be afraid of, with Obama, Democrats, Liberals, etc. In her racist, sexist, anti-gay congressional district, this is fairly easy to do, since the President is black and we all know that Democrats are gaylovers and feminazis.
The current issue regarding the census is Bachmann’s concern that the census does not ask if a person is a US citizen. She makes a good point they should, dammit!
Oh, and they do.
She is misreading the fact that a large number of people in her district are actually centrist labor-oriented Democrats who aggree that her machinations regarding the census are nothing other than repetitively boring wingnuttery. They will not be voting for her in a year and a half when she comes up for re-election, if the DFL party puts up a reasonable candidate. Which should not be hard.
Ken Avidor has the raw data for you, Think Progress is covering it, and Ed Brayton is discussing it.
