I’m starting to believe Michelle Bachmann isn’t actually a real politician at all, but instead, an unusually gifted performance artist who’s engaged in a brilliant post-modern parody of an insane wingnut.

Over the weekend, she gave a radio interview to Assrocket, and here’s how she describes her blogging and social media outreach as a member of Congress.

"I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington."

This is beyond unhinged. It sounds like a press release from Stormfront.

Let’s imagine for a moment the Faux News/National Review/InstaMalkin/RedState freak out if, say, Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave a radio interview with Kos in 2005 and referred to the Bush administration and the GOP congress as an evil, foreign enemy.

How loud and non-stop would the drumbeat of right-wing outrage get before she’d be forced to apologize on the House floor?

But that’s the thing about the right-wing. They engage in this kind of political hate speech so often, it literally goes unnoticed when one of their sitting members of Congress calls the President "the enemy."

Ho-hum.

Be nice if the Speaker or someone over there in the House demanded an apology. But I won’t hold my breath.
