Bachmann fancies herself a "foreign correspondent on enemy lines"
If we had to come up with one reason to love Rep. Michele Bachmann, it would be her never-ending ability to pull out money quotes that dumb down all of Washington politics to elementary concepts.
What now? During a WWTC 1280 AM Saturday interview with The Northern Alliance's John Hinderaker and Brian Ward, she said she fancies herself a "foreign correspondent on enemy lines" reporting back to the public about "nefarious activities" going down in Washington. You get 'em Bachmann! She studied journalism in college, after all.
She also wants Minnesotans "armed and dangerous" for a possible revolution so Republicans don't lose their country.
Hear the full interview below.
The highlights of her interview, courtesy of Smart Politics:
"I'm a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington."
"I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us 'having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,' and the people - we the people - are going to have to fight back hard if we're not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States."
