As we discussed on Monday, Michele Bachmann didn’t “witchunt” Muslims in government; she asked the Attorney General to take a break from handing out M-16es with “courtest of the NRA” stamped on the receivers to the narcotraficantes for a moment to look into some allegations.
Y’know. Just like Democrats have a history of doing based on much less evidence.
Joe Doakes of Como Park takes us down memory lane:
Democrats accused George Bush Senior of flying the SR-71 Blackbird to Paris for a secret meeting with the Ayatollahs to free the hostages. The charge was idiotic but the Democrats insisted we must investigate. Remember why?
“In announcing the probe, House Speaker Thomas Foley, D-Wash., and Senate Democratic leader George Mitchell of Maine said that committees from each house will review the case based on `persistent and disturbing’ reports.
`We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of these allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts,’ read a joint statement from Foley and Mitchell.”
Okay, how about infiltration by Muslim terrorist organizations into the United States government – does the seriousness of those charges warrant an investigation?
Isn’t that exactly what Michelle Bachmann asked the Inspector General to do – his job?
Well, to be fair, Foley and Mitchell didn’t have a pack of deranged opponents stalking their every move.
