Listen to this empty-headed, hate-spouting "legislator" accusing a huge chunk of America (and many of her colleagues) of being anti-American terror sympathizers merely for the mortal sin of leaning Left and not buying her guy's scare tactics.

The dishonesty is nauseating. Show some leadership and respect for the American people and admit that these are your concerns, Rep. Bachman. Make a case for your prejudices and paranoia openly.
Joseph McCarthy was at least reacting (albeit thuggishly, counterproductively and unconstitutionally) to a real threat to American security. These zealots are making threats up out of thin air.
