Bachmann blames Dems for Swine Flu

Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann, a Republican, has a hard time refraining from looking unintelligent. Not too long ago, in a debate on climate change, she said that carbon dioxide was a safe gas that caused no harm to us because it was "natural."

I suppose that means arsenic is safe as well, eh Congresswoman?

Now, Bachmann is questioning the swine flu outbreak as a possible Democratic Party problem.

Says Bachmann: "I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under Democrat [sic] President Jimmy Carter. And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it is an interesting coincidence."

She says she's not blaming Obama, but why even bring it up? It's clear what message she's trying to send: the Democrats are responsible for this outbreak.

Of course, none of this matters since Bachmann was wrong: the last swine flu outbreak occurred under Republican President Gerald Ford, a full year before Carter took office.
