Michele Bachmann: scientist, doctor, and lawyer!
Michele Bachmann has gotten some unwanted national exposure the last couple of days on YouTube.
In this video (linked to by Daily Kos and Wonkette at least, and probably others), Michele Bachmann denies the existence of global warming and says we need to "look at the science."
Gee, those scientists have sure dropped the ball on this one! Wonder what they've been doing for the past few decades? Why haven't they been looking at the science, trying to reach a scientific consensus?
In a video from last night's debate in Stillwater, Bachmann says she would have voted to "protect the life of Terri Schiavo," and claims that Schiavo was "healthy" and "not terminally ill."
Thanks to reader Lisa for the tip.
Warning: There are some nasty comments and personal attacks on Bachmann in these threads, which I do not condone. I do like this comment, from "astron1000":
Bachman[n] is really a victim of muddied thinking. Listen very carefully! Her comments subtley [sic] cast doubt on science in general, implying that science first thinks one way, then another. Her brand of conservatism assumes that truth is universal and unchanging. Her touchstone is the [B]ible, which she argues is the ultimate truth and is unchanging. She's one of many, many conservatives in this country who are maliciously undermining rational and skeptical thought.
