It happens every day. In fact, it is pretty hard to avoid it. There are some things that can only be understood with a slap on the forehead. Things so mind-boggling that one wonders how humans managed to evolve thumbs while being this mentally inept. Case in point:
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s speech in Iowa about the national debt.
It is truly one of those things you have to see to believe. According to the Congresswoman, there was no racism, no classism, no religious discrimination. According to her, the founding fathers, which she claimed included John Quincy Adams, abolished slavery. The only thing I could think after listening to her speech is that if she keeps this up, Stephen Colbert will be out of a job.
