We've found the replacement

Apparently Jesus asked Michele Bachmann to run for President ... so she's not running for reelection as a Congressperson.

But we've got an even crazier replacement ready in waiting, Tom Hackbarth, he lives in her district and everything.

In her e-mail to the representative, Robin Seifert wrote: "You have a choice. As a legislator, you could chose to ask the most fortunate among us to pay their fair share or you could inflict severe pain on the middle-class and vulnerable Minnesotans. … Please tax the richest two per cent of Minnesotans. Ask them to pay their fair share." She ended with a "sincerely."

In other words, not an unusual constituent-to-legislator communication.

In fact, public employee unions are urging their members, and others, to send similar letters and emails to their legislators. Hackbarth's response, via email, however, was unusual.


"I can't believe what I'm hearing from folks? All similar letters to yours.

"Are you a Union member? If so, are they the communist giving you this propaganda?

"Do you know the who, what, when, where, why, and how, of Fidel Castro?

"Hitler rose to power using and blaming the jews for the destruction of the German economy. Castro built his army of murderers by blaming the rich bankers and capitalist for destroying Cuba and taking advantage of the Cuban people.


"Representative Hackbarth."

Hackbarth is renowned for more than going full Godwin at the drop of an email. Last year he was the Minnesota moron found waiting in the parking lot of a Planned Parenthood with a gun...because he wanted to talk sense into some woman he met sense with a gun.

It's viral. no state is free from such groupthinkers, though it would be nice if the media could ignore them.
