I’m Not Givin’ Up Social Security For Socialism! | August 28, 2009

To quote the brilliant 80s/90s punk band Screeching Weasel: “My brain hurts.”

It’s Michelle Bachmann, again.

From Think Progress:

At times tempers flared at the forum, with constituents shouting at one another.

LeRoy Schaffer, a St. Francis city council member, dressed in a tuxedo and top hat for the occasion. Shaffer got visibly emotional asking Bachmann about the future of health care and the role of special interests in Washington.

“I’ll be danged if I am going to give up my Social Security because of socialism,” Schaffer said, before being booed by the crowd.

If nothing else, the summer of ’09 will be known as the summer when everyone finally realized how truly stupid America is, and how the people who influenced the debate were the ones who, quite literally, knew nothing of it. This is Your Dumbest Generation.
