It is nothing short of disgusting that the self-proclaimed "greatest country on earth" is engaged in a vehement discussion on minimum wages.
While many of us assumed and understood this fabricated Minnesota politician to be a joke, it seems large swathes of the population truly believed "Michele Bachmann" to be a bona fide person.
Michele Bachmann, retiring Minnesota Congresswoman, has introduced a bill that any Democrat who gets elected president should immediately be impeached...
The average net worth of the 41 GOP senators who opposed the first minimum wage increase in half a decade is $6.26 million.
It is impossible to disconnect the "states' rights," anti-government foundations of conservatism from the racism that hides beneath it, exposed nakedly every so often by the Cliven Bundys of the world.
Despite the progress women have made in the last several decades, they are still treated like second-class citizens in all the ways that matter. Caring about the equal treatment of women in society doesn't make people feminists -- it makes them good humans.
Like at a family reunion, the infighting at this year's CPAC started long before anybody arrived. First, the group American Atheists announced that it would be sponsoring a booth at the conference, with the goal of bringing conservative nonbelievers "out of the closet."

Just when we thought it couldn't get any better than a story about Michele Bachmann stranded in Siberia, we get this. Sizzle!
The reason I'm writing this today is because of an article in Salon today.

Thanksgiving seems to be everyone's favorite holiday. In addition to the pleasures of the feast, millions of Americans enjoy sitting around the table ...
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on CNN and complained that she's going to lose her insurance because of Obamacare. Bachmann is clearly very frightened about the prospect, but it's mainly because she's totally confused about how exactly to sign up.
There comes a time in every day when I think something like, "I'd love to live in a country where there's a machine that can measure your soul, and when someone -- someone, say, like a Ted Cruz, or a Michele Bachmann -- falls below a certain level of humanity, he or she is simply not allowed on TV."
