    Congratulations. This has to be the fastest attempt at diversion in the history of USMB. Well, at least for this week.

    Reminds me of that newly elected Repub Rep who ran against HC Reform in 2010 then promptly complained upon learning that it would take weeks for his government-run/tax-payer funded plan to take effect LOL

    Yea right. Just another lame "I Hate Bachmann!" Thread. That's definitely where this OP was going. Bachmann is you nutter's new Bugaboo. I guess even you guys realized people were sick of your "I Hate Palin!" shit. Now you've moved onto obsessing over and smearing Bachmann. Well now people are sick of your "I Hate Bachmann" shit too. So time to move on. It's old.

    I'm not sure what's more absurd and stupid:

    1. That so many MN legislators are still taking a check.
    2. That the governor labelled his chef "essential"
    3. Or that LibisanidiotNow thinks this thread is about Bachmann

    It's really quite a trifecta of stupidity.

    It's fucking ridiculous.

    How can these moronic politicians take pay while other government employees aren't? They should be the first to get their pay stopped.
