See ya'll in the camps ... Bachmann for Republican Nominee in 2012!!!
I forget, do I count dust bunnies as Native Americans or White?
It's going down South.
Also, Nate Silver points out that this campaign may well backfire on these whackos in an awesome way—if red districts fail to return their census in great numbers, they'll lose seats. Maybe even hers. Shhhhhh...
Isn't it illegal to encourage people to ignore a Constitutional law like DADT?
Due to population growth, there are some red states which stand to benefit from added seats. Texas might take 3 or 4 seats away from other states. God bless Bachmann, for scaring those yahoos away from sending in their forms!
I thought she was backtracking on this due to the point that Mr. Hecht makes.
It must have been fucking BONECHILLING before they had a postal service to send census forms, and they had to send PEOPLE.
On second thought... that aint such a bad idea.
Just the ones in unpatriotic Red states.
In Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America:
"[An] Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct."
There is nothing in the Constitution about gays and the military. Also, the leaders of the armed forces are allowed to enforce their laws as they feel proper. STFU&DIAF, Alleged, you whiny punk-ass bitch.
@30: "This woman blows goats; I have proof", to paraphrase a motion picture.
(The census does not become public until 72 years after it's taken, in case you're worried.)
Beyond that, fewer people in my district might mean that Minnesota loses a congressional district(it might lose it anyway, but...), which means one fewer electoral vote from a relatively liberal state, and probably one more for, oh, Texas.
And Sarah Palin shows us that, if you're crazy enough to make the news, lacking any actual power makes not a whit of difference to how much we hear about someone.

But then again, she's telling her own constituents not to mail it back either, so I think she's probably not really connecting the dots.
Either way, this "tea party" vs. "census" move on the part of Bachmann and her Fox News followers is really, really stupid. It's stupid because it's absurd, yes, but it's also stupid because it's just stupid. It only hurts the people who refuse to fill it out, who, in this case, may end up being the conservatives. Go for it, guys!
that's perfect. love it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: there is absolutely no reason that Bachmann's district should even exist. The Republicans messed with district borders to include the two right-wing areas in MN as one district, even though they're NOWHERE NEAR each other.
For your viewing pleasure:
I only wish I lived in her district so I could vote against the silly bitch.
Yes, you read that right...her constituents are more insane than her.
tom cruise, sarah palin, batboy, michelle bachman, and michelle malkin.
