Michelle comes to a logical conclusion.

First, RIP Gore Vidal, perhaps the last of this country’s ‘public intellectuals’: where are the likes of Buckley, Hitchens, Vidal? A brilliant mind, a brilliant wit, painfully honest and deeply patriotic –  and a wonderful writer.

Here’s Michelle Bachmann today telling her Gore Vidal story:

“It’s very interesting because I had been a Democrats — and I’d actually worked on Jimmy Carter’s campaign. And I was reading a novel by Gore Vidal, and when I was reading it he was mocking the Founding Fathers. And all of a sudden it just occurred to me: I set the book down on my lap, I looked out the window of a train I was riding in, and I thought to myself, ‘I don’t think I’m a Democrat. I think I really am a Republican.’ Because the Founding Fathers were not the characters that I saw Gore Vidal portraying in his novel.”

For the good Congresswoman, that apparently passes for actual reasoning.

  2. Two of the last three posts are too challenging because I’m not going to read about Bachmann and Hannity within a matter of minutes. Well, at least you didn’t include Palin.


  3. I’m not a big Vidal fan, but given that he got her out of MY party, Thanks, Gore!


  4. Are we to mourn the defection of Bachmann? Good riddance.


  5. Bachmann came to a proper, American conclusion on the worth of Vidal and those who favor his works in general, most of which were rankly anti-American.

    Trust me, no true American is saddened by Vidal’s trip to judgement and not one will hope he receives mercy.


    • Bachmann came to a proper, American conclusion on the worth of Vidal

      By “proper, American” do you mean a conclusion based on little to no evidence coupled with faulty reasoning? You shouldn’t paint America with such a wide brush as there are people in America who do use reason and are quite thoughtful in their arguments.

      Trust me, no true American…

      Rampant generalizing and a logical fallacy, all in one comment.

      Full Marks, do keep up the good work. 🙂


      • Why waste your time? You’re not going to silence me with your attacks no matter how much you try.

        And, BTW, what would you, a foreigner living in country with no devotion to liberty or freedom of speech know of America. Like all of your breed, you’re not really qualified to comment on America.
