7. Batshit, Tweety, Shrub, Big Dog, Poppy, Pickles...
Most long-time DUers should know who those are (and probably a lot more that I can't remember right now).

11. I'm not into the whole dehumanization-by-nickname game
I think it's really kind of childish. I'm sure that people on the other side of the aisle have tasteless nicknames for the President too. Being on the correct side of something doesn't make it OK to trash another human being.

12. OK. Let's just call her a liar that makes fraudulent accusations of Obama
and others she opposes being involved in un-American activities. This would be more accurate....

Rep. Bachmann wants to work with Rep. Ellison on fighting Medicaid fraud
By Daniel Strauss - 07/31/12 12:26 PM ET
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is hoping to work with Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Medicaid reform, according to a report.
Bachmann told a group of Minnesota business owners that she wanted to work with Ellison on fighting Medicaid fraud in their home state.
"Minnesota is the poster child for Medicaid fraud. If we're going to have a system, we need a system that works for the poor. Right now, it's not working. I've been in communication with Rep. Ellison and hope to work with him on this issue," Bachmann said Monday, according to Patch.com.
If Ellison, the only Muslim member of Congress, does team up with Bachmann, it would be a shift from a recent, tense exchange between the two that began when Bachmann and a number of other Republicans sent letters to the inspectors general of five government agencies (Departments of Defense, Justice, Homeland Security, National Intelligence, and State) suggesting the agencies had been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood and other "radical" groups.
