Department of Utter Hypocrisy

Wingnut Rep. Michele "Minnesota Loon" Bachmann loves to harangue against gummint waste and spending. She still thinks we should have defaulted on the debt. Now, we learn that the Minnesota Loon has aggressively pursued Federal money:
"...on at least 16 separate occasions, Bachmann petitioned the federal government for direct financial help or aid. A large chunk of those requests were for funds set aside through President Obama's stimulus program, which Bachmann once labeled 'fantasy economics.' Bachmann made two more of those requests to the Environmental Protection Agency, an institution that she has suggested she would eliminate if she were in the White House."
The Minnesota Loon represents a subculture in America, one that believes the rules don't apply to them, and that they are somehow entitled to things the rest of us aren't. They carry signs that say "Government Hands Off Our Medicare," while supporting the likes of Paul "Lyin'" Ryan, who will dismantle Medicare and replace it with a private insurance voucher. They are hypocrites and fools.
