Nice rundown of Bachmann’s insanity on a broad front. For additional coverage of Bachmann’s extremist rhetoric, incendiary demagoguery, and political paranoia in the past year, see:

Michele has advocated that the GOP define itself by the Tea Party Movement. A movement that has embraced neo nazi sign holders, bigots and assualt rifle advocates. Ah umm…yeah. That is eactly what the GOP should embrace, if it hasn’t already. Let’s go back to the fifties so the rest of the world can see how backwards we are.
The left wing loons are here I see. Drink more pelosi kool aid while BO brings you to a crashing THUD!

[...] old party is bright, but it’s also currently in high school, with folks like representative Michele Bachmann or minority leader John Boehner sounding the call to rally, the only patriots who bother to show up [...]
I hate ignorance and deception. You are guilty of one or both.
Firstly: “It should be noted that refusing to fully complete a US Census form is a crime punishable by a $5,000 fine.”
Incorrect. $5,000 is the maximum fine imposed upon a Census WORKER who misuses the information collected. The maximum fine for not completing the entire form? $100. http://uscode.house.gov/download/pls/13C7.txt
Second: Who is advocating NOT filling out the Census, at all (which would lead to the under-count you seem to hope occurs)? Answer: NOBODY. The Census – as in COUNTING the number of people for the purposes of representation – is a universally recognized Constitutional requirement. However, in the opinion of MANY people, the information BEYOND THAT (racial information, for example) is PRIVATE information that is neither called for by the Constitution nor any of the Government’s business.
So, Rep. Bachmann, like myself, will be filling out (as she said), “how many people are in our home” and NOTHING else. Therefore, her family and mine WILL be COUNTED for the purposes of general population reports, Electoral College distribution, and Congressional redistricting.
However, if Papa Gov’ment want to generate racist reports based upon my skin color, they will be SH*T OUT OF LUCK. I will pay the $100. It is a paltry sum to advance freedom and move towards a *truly* post-racial society.
According to Section 221, persons who do not respond shall be fined not more than $100. Title 18 U.S.C. Section 3571 and Section 3559, in effect amends Title 13 U.S.C. Section 221 by changing the fine for anyone over 18 years old who refuses or willfully neglects to complete the questionnaire or answer questions posed by census takers from a fine of not more than $100 to not more than $5,000.
