Bachmann Vows To Save Successful Gov't-Funded Factory From Itself

News

Hoo-wee, Michele Bachmann is back in Waterloo, Iowa where she was hatched, spouting as usual just "the complete opposite of whatever is actually the case in reality." So what this time? Bachmannrambled a righteous yarn about the devilry and downfall of government spending and regulation Monday as she stood promising growth in front of a booming traffic-signal factory, one that is just doing really super well for itself because of the surge in infrastructure repair projects, which, oh hey, who pays for infrastructure projects? Who knows, probably the mystery billionaire fairy nymphs that go around financing public works projects when government red tape isn't tangled in their wings. Whoever they are, Michele Bachmann is on their team to save this factory (that, again, is doing well despite the downturn).


The company that owns the factory, OMJC, receives about 80% of its revenues from the government, and the company's chief executive told this to Bachmann. Her response, from the LA Times:

[OMJC CEO Alan] Yost, a conservative Republican, took pains not to spoil Bachmann's event, playing down his company's reliance on government spending in a conversation with the candidate.

"So you don't get a government grant to do what you do?" she asked him.

No grants, he assured her. "I wish I could say we had great success in government funds, because everybody likes a handout," he said.

"Oh oh oh, so you get government money. Just as long as you aren't getting a government grant. We're cool." It's from the book called How To Speak Republican, children! [LA Times]

It was bound to happen. We're now watching Republican congressmen react to Donald Trump sitting in the Oval Office and saying "RUSSIA IF YOU'RE LISTENING" during an interview with George Stephanopoulos, literally inviting hostile foreign powers to attack the 2020 election for him like Russia did in 2016. And if you thought there wouldn't be at least one of them to say the quiet part loud and state for the record that crime is good if it helps Republicans win, then you haven't been paying attention to the Republican party in quite a while.

Enter GOP Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, AKA the committee whose members really should know better, even the Republicans, but unfortunately they don't because A) they're idiots and B) they've been sucking at Devin Nunes's dairy cows' teats (ALLEGEDLY) for too long:
