The Charge of the Light (headed) Brigade

Michelle Bachmann spoke yesterday at a rally against health care reform, and attempted to whip the attendees into a frenzy with a fancy literary reference, telling the gathered teabaggers “It’s the charge of the light brigade!” Watch it yourself:

Good thing she doesn’t know that the light brigade was massacred, in that famous poem by Lord Tennyson.

    Part of the conservative movement is to restrict any education. Palin’s children never seem to be in school. The two oldest didn’t graduate, one got a GED. As in Afghanistan, people are a lot more pliable to brainwashing when not taught history.

    While I agree that conservatives aren’t too keen on quality education, I do not believe that this is a forum for rumor mongering. Both of Palin’s eldest children have high school diplomas, as far as local (i.e. Wasilla) media reports state. Whether it was a good education is a different matter. But there is no reason to drag her children into a discussion about the stupidity of Michelle Bachmann.
