    All I can say is that Bachmann better damn well have some solid evidence. Otherwise, she risks plunging this country into yet another era of political witch-hunts the likes of which we haven't seen since the days of McCarthyism and the Red scares of the 1950s.

    Keep in mind that George W. Bush, to his credit, worked to prevent this very thing from happening in the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks over ten years ago. And frankly, all this fear-mongering can't do us any good overseas in the Muslim world if our country is perceived as virulently anti-Muslim JUST LIKE their extremist groups have been saying for years. Bachmann could actually elevate these groups if and when she makes blanket charges without any real proof.

    Furthermore, while I know for a fact that many elected representatives from both parties have a tendency to engage in posturing on a wide variety of issues in an effort to get some attention (as in free press), I would hate to believe that any member of Congress, regardless of political party, could be so irresponsible as to launch a merit-less attack on the loyalty of any group of our fellow citizens simply to raise his or her own profile, especially considering the needless damage it could do to countless lives in the process.

    Firesign Theater kept us in fits of laughter at a time.

    Lennon might have been a bit radical, but (G.) Marx was always 'on'.

    Naw ... the rw's love lies like this. Watch the comments in this thread. They will agree with dingbat Bachmann.

    And, look at the reaction to Alan West lying about Communists in the Dem party. They ate it up, never looked for evidence or proof and, as far as the rw's are concerned, its now engraved in stone.

    To McCain's credit, he said that Bachmann made a groundless attack.

    If the charges are groundless, this is well beyond being a jackass. This would be an indication that she's wholly unfit to hold office.

    To be fair, I should also add that when I first heard this story, Bachmann was one of 5 Republican members of Congress to call into question the possibility of Muslim extremist infiltration in the US Gov't.

    The others are:

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
    Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ)
    Rep. Thomas Rooney (R-FL)
    Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA).

    In a released statement, John McCain slapped down the accusation (and Bachmann, I might add).

    Then the people in her district ought to turn her out of office and give her a chance to shine in the private sector.
