Michele Bachmann registers another first-place finish this week, for the impressive feat of linking Benghazi, the IRS, and Obamacare into one huge conspiracy about the government killing Republicans.
Bachmann shared her ridiculous theory during an interview with the ever-loony WorldNetDaily. According to Bachmann, the GOP’s latest round of Benghazi hearings caused the Obama administration to publicly confront the IRS story, as a way of distracting Americans from the horrible cover-up. But Bachmann won’t be fooled. She asserts that since “the president was willing to use the most feared agency in the U.S. for his own political purposes,” clearly it’s now “a reasonable question to ask” whether or not the IRS — which has a major role in Obamacare’s implementation — “will deny or delay access to health care” for conservatives.
Here’s what’s truly impressive about Bachmann’s latest rant: it may not even be the craziest thing she said this week. At this pace, we may need a This Week In Bachmann feature to keep up with the Tea Party’s favorite congresswoman.
