Yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) delivered a "speech filled with urgent and violent rhetoric" at a gathering sponsored by the Independence Institute in Denver. During what was originally billed as a "personal legislative briefing," Bachmann "got downright biblical" when describing her unwavering opposition to health care reform:
"This [health care reform] cannot pass…What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass ... Right now, we are looking at reaching down the throat and ripping the guts out of freedom. And we may never be able to restore it if we don't man up and take this one on."
