A point of agreement with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

I do so much complaining here on the site about the far right in our country that I tend to forget that, at times, there are things that we agree on. So, in the spirit of reaching out and building alliances across party lines, I’m going to make a real concerted effort from now on to note the items that we agree on… Today, for instance, Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann, whom I often rant about, said something that I can really get behind. She asked Republicans, in response to the efforts of Barack Obama to bring healthcare reform to the United States, to slash their wrists in protest. And I wholeheartedly agree… Here’s her exact quote:

“What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing… This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn’t pass.”

In the spirit of bipartisanship, I would even go a step further, and encourage them to eat poison and jump off of tall buildings. Anyone feel like making some, “Stand up to Obama / Slash your wrists” signs?

    I’m not really serious. I don’t really want Republicans to kill themselves. That would, after all, take all the fun out of serving on their death panels.

    I’d prefer to see them sign up to fight in Iraq, since they were all so gung-ho to see us go over there, with their magnetic ribbon stickers and other faux patriot bullshit.
