All that applause Bachmann

All that applause Bachmann got shows that we still have a lot of work to do. Give 'em credit, foxnews and Rush and others have done a tremendous job of fearmongering. There is a significant number of republicans who think that Islamic terrorism is an existential threat like the Soviet Union was. This week's villain of the week is Iran, last week it was Libya, before that it was the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt (remember Beck screaming hysterially that the communists and Muslims were plotting to destroy America?). We have got to expose this ridiculous fear. It doesn't mean that there are no threats, but we've got to be more realistic. Iran couldn't get a nuclear bomb to America even if they had an ocean going camel.
