“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…
