Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me There Was A Wingnut Ditz Derby Going On?

Geez, did I miss a memo or something?

For the past few weeks, it looked like Michele Bachmann was going to win the Harris-Chenoweth Golden Cuckoo Trophy in a walk. I mean, let’s just look at her output from the past forty-eight hours: Not only did she conflate gays and pedophiles, but she also tried to link swine flu to Democratic administrations (which is especially hilarious as the last major swine flu outbreak occurred during the tenure of Republican president Gerald R. Ford). But as Spencer Ackerman shows, she’s now got some serious, elbow-throwing competition in the form of Virginia Foxx (R-NC), who trashed Matthew Shepard.

Perhaps this is why Michele’s upped the wackaloon ante by reaming out FDR over the “Hoot-Smalley” tariff. (It’s good enough, it’s smart enough, and gosh darnit, people like it!) Even better: That legislation was enacted before FDR was president.
