@LOLGOP’s Tweets Of The Week: Extreme Bachmann Edition

In a time of tragedy, it’s nice to believe that America can come together and do the right thing. This week that actually happened. Politicians on both sides of the aisle came together to blast the demagoguery of Michele Bachmann and a handful of colleagues who serve in the House of Representatives.

Bachmann and four fellow Republican Reps sent letters to the inspector generals in the State Department, Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice and the Office of National Intelligence suggesting that the Muslim Brotherhood had infiltrated the federal government. Their evidence? In the case of Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, the accusation was entirely based on a few of Abedin’s family members who have been associated in the past with the Brotherhood. This formula of guilt by association so reeked of McCarthyism that we even got a rare taste of the “good” John McCain—just hours after he joined a filibuster that will keep millions in political donations anonymous. McCain was eventually joined by other Republicans including Speaker Boehner—all of whom have been largely silent as our Commander-in-Chief is constantly accused of treason by Republican clowns including Donald Trump and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Okay, we can’t expect too much moral clarity from the right. Still we shouldn’t ignore it when we get it. So Michele Bachmann, these tweets go out to you.
