Bachmann: Stomach-Turner Overdrive

June 30th, 2011

“From 1988 to 1993, [Michele Bachmann] was an attorney working for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).”
-Source: Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Bachmann]


 
My revulsion for former IRS employees is surpassed only by my disdain of current IRS employees. In fact, there would be nobody I despise more were it not for telemarketers and the Minnesota Vikings.

Given this history, and her complete lack of contrition for having been a henchman for Uncle Sam’s Cosa Nostra (including the ruthless pursuit of Marvin Manypenny, an American Indian student making under $10k a year) it’s a safe bet that I won’t be endorsing Michele Bachmann. Nor, should she catch fire, am I likely to so much as pee on her.

If she was NOT on fire, then yeah.  Sure.

Not only does she lack any sort of reflective remorse for serving as the feds’ version of Salvatore Tessio, she had the audacity to proudly offer up THIS gem on the Sean Hannity radio show last night:

“I’m a former U.S. tax attorney, so I KNOW how this economy works.” [Insert all manner of "BWAHAHAHAHAHA!" here.]

If the Marxian “class versus class” political struggle can truly be distilled to the newly popular “takers versus makers” analysis, then Bachmann’s service record as Commander of Confiscation is a quite nearly insurmountable strike against her.

Unless and until Bachmann shows an enormous and sincere amount of compunction for those six ugly years of her life, I’ll hold her in the same regard she’s held the American taxpayer.  Our next Republican president needs to be a foe of our fiendish and formidable tax code, not someone who cut their political teeth as an Internal Revenue Service lackey…

    This was very refreshing. It’s comforting to know that some media, even if it’s alternative, cares about how the citizens of this country are abused by the thugs at the IRS. I know firsthand how the IRS’ tactics effect the victims of their abuses, because the way they are coming after my father for the misdeeds of his brother, over five years ago, and the way it is literally destroying my parents 24 year, healthy marriage, is not only reprehensible, it’s also depressing. I am 24, and don’t know what to do. Every day I worry about finding a way to just help my parents, but there’s no way out. I do know one thing for sure though – this isn’t freedom, and I think it’s safe to assume this is not what this nation’s founders fought and died to pass on to us. Somewhere along the way, the republic they created died. Today, it seems more like a a tyranny than anything else.
