Bachmann is well-known for own distinct flavors of reasoning. What was her logic for rejecting the census as “unnecessary government intervention into American lives”?
“If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the Census Bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps.”
It might be noted that the vast majority of Americans who were sent to the WWII-era internment camps were of Japanese descent and were not female Republican representatives.
Other Minnesota Republican dogs are returning to their vomit planning to appear at the rally, including present governor Tim Pawlenty and all-around poor sport would-be senator Norm Coleman.
