Michele Bachmann advocating suicide attack?


Is Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann advocating a suicide attack?

That's the question asked by DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas after Mrs. "Oh no she didn't!" blurted "It's the charge of the Light Brigade!" at today's Code Red conservative rally against healthcare.

As Talking Points Memo points out:

The fun part here is that the Light Brigade lost that famous battle of the Crimean War -- they lost it badly, sustaining heavy numbers of deaths and injuries. They are celebrated not for victory, but for their bravery in taking on truly insurmountable odds in a military disaster. It's hardly the sort of positive example that could truly rally the political faithful to success, is it?
