She said WHAT?

May 2, 2011 - Kevin Sweeney
Michelle Bachmann has special reason to be thankful for the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden on Sunday. It made people ignore her latest “She said WHAT?” moment on Saturday.

On Saturday, Bachmann, in a speech to New Hampshire Republicans, compared our federal budget situation to the Holocaust. Yes, the Holocaust.

She thinks young Americans, facing the “loss of economic liberty,” will ask the older generation why nobody did anything to stop it, just as little Michelle had asked her mother, when she first heard of the Holocaust, if anyone had done anything to stop it. She was appalled to hear that most people weren’t even aware it was happening. She said the next generation will ask similar questions about why their taxes are so high.

Is this an indication of how much Bachmann loves money, that she will compare rounding up dollars and cents for the IRS to rounding up Jewish families and sending them to death camps?

There should be an unwritten rule for politicians: Unless you are talking about bloodthirsty dictators who slaughter millions of people because of their race or religion, don’t compare things to Hitler or the Holocaust. It only makes you look like an idiot.
