When I was transcribing Michele Bachmann’s remarks on Sean Hannity’s radio show from Wednesday, calling for an “orderly revolution” to save freedom from President Obama’s Marxism, I somehow managed to miss what might have been the most inflammatory moment.

Go to the 7:55 mark:

We can never forget that the Founders were rebelling against a governmental authority that abused their taxation power. And that was the tyranny. That’s exactly what’s happening right now. And we have to — we have to rise up and say, “No more. Not on my watch. No more.”
