None dare call it "sedition."

Oh, this is delightful. As more than one pundit has pointed out, if a left-wing pol had done this during the Bush administration, the wingnut shrieking would have been off the scale. On the other hand, when a Republican does it, well, behold:

Michelle Bachmann: The Obama Administration is “Foreign,” “Nefarious,” “The Enemy”

"I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington."

Oh, but wait ... it gets so much better:

Asked about the White House-backed cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions, Bachmann told WWTC 1280 AM, "I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us 'having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,' and the people -- we the people -- are going to have to fight back hard if we're not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States."

In other news, we on the Left are, apparently, uncivil. Or so I've heard.

I give it six months, tops, before Bachmann starts talking about black UN helicopters.
