It’s a quickie. Below the fold.

    I love the facepalm at the end.

    I call foul, Greg — you did that on purpose. Both the headline and the “quickie”. A shudder went down my spine at the implication that someone as awesome as Rachel would condescend to “do” Bachmann under any circumstances. And I’m talking, not even if she sank two quarts of JD right before.

    But yes… wow. Government control over vaginas, but not over other health care decisions. Republicans truly are all about being pro-life up until you’re squirted out into the world, then you’re on your own. (Apologies to Carlin.)

    Republicans: party of the mentally deficient.

    Resist the temptation. Irony is lost on such people. They are unable to see the flaws in themselves that they project onto others. They can support mass murder in the Middle East, the death penalty, killing abortion doctors, and the absolute sanctity of all life — all in one breath, and with nary a bobble.

    Bachmann is able to hold these seemingly contradictory positions because in her “mind” abortion is not about health-care. It is not about a woman’s body (vessel), but all about the fetus and murder – is it not?

    “Under no certain circumstances.”

    Gahhhh.

    And why not? Michele Bachmann either relaxes and lightens up or commits stupidcide, and if she enlists first, Rachel Maddow qualifies for the Medal of Honor, having distinguished herself “conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of her life above and beyond the call of duty while in action against an enemy of the United States.” :P
