The inmates are truly taking over the asylum
Bin Laden must be dancing the Muslim equivalent of the jig:
Rep. Michele Bachmann, one of the most outspoken conservatives in the House, has won an appointment to the secretive House Intelligence Committee.
The move by incoming Speaker John Boehner to put Bachmann on the panel surprised Republican insiders, who see her as a fiery grass roots leader of the tea party movement but not necessarily a leader on national security among House Republicans.
Bachmann once suggested that Congress should investigate whether Democratic lawmakers were pro- or anti-America, and she’s been a cable TV favorite because she’s known for colorful sound bites.
Members of the Intelligence panel receive classified briefings in a secure conference room in the Capitol, and are sworn to secrecy about most of the committee’s activities…
Appointing Bachmann to the House Intelligence Committee is like appointing:
- Inspector Cluseau to head the CIA.
- Orly Tate to head the Census Bureau.
-Mel Gibson to head AIPAC.
- Sarah Palin to head PETA.
- Pee Wee Herman as the strength and conditioning coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
- Michael Vick as the spokesperson for Purina Dog Chow.
I feel safer already.
