GOP Rep. Michelle Bachmann talks about orgies

Putting aside the comedic value for a moment, the Republicans have a real problem here. Their top representatives in the national spotlight are an ongoing source of embarrassment. Bachmann, Limbaugh, Steele, Palin, Gingrich, Boehner, Cantor. They’re also, all, embarrassingly conservative – or like Steele and Romney, trying awfully hard to fool people into thinking they are. Either way, they don’t present a very enticing picture for moderates.

“During the last 100 days we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed,” Bachmann said. She then told the crowd that April 26 was National Debt Day, which conservatives commemorate as the moment government spending outpaces revenue. As Bachmann explains, “The government spent its wad by April 26. Every dime government spends after April 26 throughout the rest of this fiscal year is borrowed money.”
