In a new profile
in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune
, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) takes the controversies surrounding herself in stride:
"I haven't purposely been trying to be inflammatory," she said in an interview last week. "I'm trying to just explain to the American people what's happening here in Washington, D.C."
Consider for a moment that this is the Congresswoman who has said the country is at the point of revolution
, or that we have to decide whether we want to be free or want to be slaves
. Just imagine if she were trying
to be inflammatory.
