Bachmann’s ‘Jim the Election Guy’ Is Back, and He Wants To Give You TAX-FREE Fried Bacon

News

Michele Bachmann has anew ad airing in Minnesota. It's about the complexities of federalism and our modern political system. Just kidding! It's 30 more seconds of dumbed down crap about taxes. Jim the Election Guy wants voters to know Bachmann's opponent wants to tax their precious fried food and beer at the Minnesota State Fair. "What's up with voting to tax my beer?" Yes, why would a government tax anything ever? What a dumb idea. Now go back to watching more challenging television programming, Minnesotans, such as the screensaver for your DVD player.


Actually, it turns out Tarryl Clark has voted for an increase in the state's alcohol taxes and a general sales tax, but has never voted to increase taxes specifically on state fair foods such as cheese curds and fried carnie appendages. But whatever. We'll let them sort out the truth on that higher-minded Sesame Street show. [TPM]

You all remember the wire mother and cloth mother experiments on attachment from first-year psychology, right? In the 1950s, University of Wisconsin researcher Harry Harlow removed rhesus monkeys from their mothers shortly after birth, and, in various tests, placed them with surrogate "mothers" -- in the most famous comparison, one mother was made of wire mesh, and had a rubber nipple to dispense milk, but the other mother, which had no milk, was made with soft terrycloth and looked at least a little like a mommy monkey. Every single time, the baby monkeys would cling to the soft cloth mothers, going to the wire mother only when absolutely necessary to be fed. (There's a famous photo of one monkey clinging to its cloth mother and leaning waaaay over to nurse from the wire mother. Harlow later placed a wall between the two to prevent that.)

I was in D.C. last week for the first time since Donald Trump proved that our electoral process is silly. It feels like Vegas now with all the images of Trump around. Then I remembered he has the same job as the guy in the Jefferson Memorial. I tried to rationalize it in my head: Jefferson had unprotected sex with enslaved women. Trump reportedly has unprotected sex with adult film stars who can more or less come and go as they please. I suppose that's an improvement.

But how did we get here? How did our institutions fail us? It's not so much that Trump is an unqualified, racist radish head. He's also ridiculously corrupt.
