Why am I not suprised by this? Rep Michele Bachmann (R-MN) decided that raising the minimum wage for low-income working folks just wasn’t necessary. How odd, that Jim Ramstad (R-MN) from our 3rd Congressional District even joined the rest of the Minnesota team and voted for the minimum wage increase.
So, with a total of 8 Congressional Districts in Minnesota, only two are represented by Republicans, and only one of those two voted against the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007: Minnesota’s very own “Katherine Harris, Version 2.0” Michele Bachmann.
Why do I get the sneaky suspicion that Bachmann is going to ride her
four two years in office making Minnesota an embarrassment. The rest of us who aren’t in Bachmann’s 5th District should set up toll-booths and tarriff’s for entering and leaving the district, just to pay off the shame.
If she spent all of that time talking to God before she was elected, then is it safe to say that God hates poor people?!?
The other day, somebody in the local news was noting all of the uniqueness from Minnesota’s election last November. Camera is spot on and the voice over said: “Senator Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota’s first female elected to the US Senate!” and then the camera is on Keith Ellision and he’s smiling and the voice-over said; “Mr. Ellision is Minnesota’s first African-American elected to Congress and is the first Muslim elected to Congress!”. Then the camera was on Michele Bachman and there’s no voice-over because she speaks into the microphone and says; “Well, it’s not talked about much, but I’m the first female Republican elected to Congress!”
I wish I could find that piece. She going to be such an embarrassment to her District and her God for the next four years. I can’t wait for her husband Marcus to come flying out of the Closet like an old argyle sweater…. You just know that’s the next shoe to drop.
Updated: Someone came along and left a comment and pointed out the “error of my ways”. Bachman’s up for reelection in two years – and there’s already a great gaggle of DFL’ers ready to shoo her out the door.
