I was getting sleepy on my drive home yesterday so I turned on talk radio only to hear our own loverly Michele Bachmann (the fighting MN-6!) talking about her weekend trip to Iraq. Now you could argue with her on the merits of her opinions and observations and hold a relatively reasonable discussion - if this was the year 2003. But here we are in the middle of 2007 and thus, she is completely insane. It became all the more insane when I learned today that her delegation never left the greeenzone, never met any Iraqies, and was prohibited from staying overnight. This was in addition to wearing body armor the entire time she was there. The host jokingly down-played the body armor by saying that it would be useful in Minneapolis too. Funny.
Not to end a political post too bitter though, here is Jon Stewarts take on her trip:
"You weren't even in the real Baghdad. You were in the Green Zone. That's like going to the Olive Garden and saying you've been to Italy."
