Michele Bachmann lays down with birthers, refuses to acknowledge Obama citizenship

BACHMANN: Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. [...]

REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS (D-MD): Further procedings on this motion will be postponed.

That's right. Our own Michele Bachmann invoked quorum rules to avoid acknowledging that the President of the United States is an American citizen. Have we gone that far down the rabbit hole?

Update: Bachmann eventually voted for the bill after a quorum was present. The bill passed unanimously with 378 votes--there wasn't a single "no" vote. Bachmann also called for a quorum on several other issues that day that didn't involve insane denial of the President's birthright as an American citizen, according to Salon, so you may not want to read too much into it.
