I do sometimes find Mark McKinnon to be interesting. Less often, I find him to be incisive. But it wasn't until this morning that I found him laugh out loud, knee-slappingly funny. He has a piece that appeared in yesterday's Daily Beast which, to tell you the truth, I am not sure is meant to be taken seriously. This is because, in it, he seems to be taking Michelle Bachmann very seriously. You can read it for yourselves but here is a screencap of the sub-header in bold type
Wow. "Fire in the belly?" This may well be. However, he seems to have not taken into account the rocks in her head, the ice in her veins, or the "closed for repairs sign" that sits just outside her center of reason. Was this one of those unfortunate late-night posts about which we all feel regret at one time or another?
I have made a couple of gently glib remarks in the past week about actually wanting the Reagan vision back within the Republican party. The Gipper may have called ketchup a "vegetable." But I honestly think Bachmann would try and find a way to conflate ketchup with a "threat to our freedoms" if it might give her some momentary edge.
The journey through the looking glass continues...
