Petition to oust Michele Bachmann from Intelligence is a no brainer


People for the American Way, a liberal advocacy group, is circulating a petition asking John Boehner to remove Michele Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee.

The petition targets Bachmann's bizarre obsession with Sharia law and other Islamophobic tomfoolery, though really there's any number of reasons to remove Bachmann from anything involving intelligence.

She made a big splash with her unfounded claim that Iran was planning to divide up Iraq, which she later had to retract. She has suggested that Islam is the enemy and insinuated that a fellow Congressman was a secret member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Most recently, she claimed on the radio that President Obama supports the global rise of Sharia Law.

"Conspiracy theories and religious McCarthyism should have no place in our government, especially in the House Intelligence Committee, on which Rep. Bachmann sits," the petition argues.

Need to remove John Boehner as well.  He has done no work for over four years and he helped to create most of the problems we face today.. and the lack on intelligence of Michele is unreal.  Makes you wonder if people who vote for these losers ever find out what they are like before hand.


Need to get rid of John Boy as he is only helping the Rich or Corporations.

Putting Rep. Bachmann on the Intelligence Committee was one of the more cunning things Rep. Boehner has ever done.  She's sworn to secrecy about the proceedings, so she can't talk about anything the least bit relevant (not that she would anyway).

Not at all. Boehner is a big man, and he knows how to get the job done. We need a little crazy on the House Intelligence committee. Nothing is more entertaining than a random witch hunt when we could be wasting our time looking out for real-world threats. We need more nut bags in charge of things that can go after made up problems. After all, imaginary problems are easier to thwart, and this gives us more time to go after the gays.

Boehner is too ignorant and stupid to listen to common sense.

Why not? Didn't know there was a litmus test to agree with city pages.

Had to do a double take.. You better retract this right away or Aaron is going to get pissed you're playing in his sandbox.
