Mocking Morality

If politics is the art of the possible, the kind of rhetoric here contributes nothing at all.  In fact, let's be honest.  Michelle Bachmann and her allies aren't interested in politics or leadership anyway.  They're simply interested in bullying and tantalizing conservatives so completely that American voters fail to see the real Tea Party agenda: the gutting of any kind of caring security net, the total alignment of government with corporate interests, the militarization of our future.  That Michelle's America: and she's using Planned Parenthood to get there.  Just like Jerry Falwell, Pat Buchanan, Ronald Reagan, Sarah Palin, Glen Beck and all the rest.  There's nothing new about their Tea Party.  Same old, same old.
