Which statement is more preposterous?
4. I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us ‘having a revolution every now and then is a good thing’ and the people – we the people – are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country.–Michele Bachmann
13. Asked if he has been able to speak to President Obama he said, “Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me.”–Jeremiah Wright.
A rising star in the Republican party calls for a revolution from “armed and dangerous” Minnesotans and Obama’s former pastor goes anti-Semitic on us all.
