Spawn of the Devil

[It’s] under the guise of quote, volunteerism, but it’s not volunteers at all. It’s paying people to do work on behalf of government. There are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people get trained in the philosophy the government puts forward and then they have to go work in these politically correct forums. As a parent, I would have a very, very difficult time seeing my children do this.

– Michele Bachmann talking about AmeriCorps on the Sue Jeffers radio show in April.¬†So of course, Bachmann’s son, Harrison Bachmann, just joined Teach for America, which is part of AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps is similar to the Peace Corps, except it puts young people to work inside of America, teaching and helping the poor.

    Wow. I’ve always thought she was just a fool. I now see she’s an idiot.

    Was she actually elected? Please tell me that she was appointed to fill some vacant seat. Please.

    Not only elected, but reelected (in the same election that elected Obama president). I even donated money to her opponent (Elwyn Tinklenberg), but to no avail.

    …in the same state that elected both very Democratic Al Franken and Independent Jesse Ventura. Talk about political diversity!

  5. I’m reading her comment, and if you twist in the other direction, you could say the same thing for the military. Possibly even more so.

    Hypocrisy much?

    Yeah! How dare you try to help the poor and disadvantaged! Don’t know you that’s a violation of the Republican faith?
