Why the hell do we have to hear from Michele Bachmann all the time on MSM, like
she was the final authority on everything. They're always dragging her out on everything. They must have her on a retainer for instant comment.

1. The theory seems to be the more you hear/see someone speak, the more sane they start to sound..

10. Yeah!!! I think she's in the category of delusional fiction, problem is, she's got company. I find
her supporters pretty scary.

16. Because she is a nut
She says provacative things on TV that the commentariat can feel superior to without feeling guilty about it. Obviously, we are better than her yet because we are so obviously better than her, we can put her on TV as an opposing view.

It actually is quite insulting to actual opposing points of view on issues that might actually be informative.

18. because the Media loves her
she's a sensationalistic extreme character that draws attention... that translates into ratings. Unfortuantely, a business aspect once again is allowed to warp reality to suit a business need. Information? The truth? Legitimate politicians? Not so important.

22. Yep, yet another example of profit at any cost to the country, screw the country and
the people. It's amazing. There are a lot of smart people in this country with worthy ideas/solutions, but we don't often hear from them over and over, instead we often get the MSM Stupid Parade over and over.

27. Yep! I do, very often anymore. One dose is enough. In fact, I have it off most of the time, anymore.
TV has really turned into an idiot box and commercials are just about nonstop. I turned it on for just a few minutes earlier today and who appeared, Michele Bachmann. :puke: :puke: :puke:
