The University that awarded Congresswoman Bachmann a law degree should be ashamed. If the founding fathers (I suppose she included the Southern founding fathers who owned slaves) worked tirelessly to abolish slavery how come the country fought a civil war over slavery? Did the law school that granted Bachmann a law degree fail to teach, or even mention, the 1857 Supreme Court's Dred Scott decision? If everyone who came to America was welcomed as equal, regardless of race, then why was it necessary to pass three Constitutional Amendments: the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth? Did Rep. Bachmann learn any thing about the Jim Crow period that ushered in legal segregation of the races in the Southern States? Is it possible that the college and the law school she attended omitted any mention of the Supreme Court's "Plessy v. Ferguson" decision? I have a sneaking suspicion that, Rep. Bachmann, a college educated and a lawyer, is not that ignorant. Rather, she seems determined to re-write history to conform with teabaggers' claims that their mission is to restore the ideals of the pure and blameless founding fathers.Who is dumber?; Michelle for saying the Founding Fathers eliminated slavery, or Sarah for saying that the Soviet Union collapsed because of Sputnik. What do you think?
Welcome, Nathkatun. Trying to decide whether Bachmann or Palin is the dumber one is a REALLY tough decision. Actually, I think that Sarah Palin is willfully ignorant, and proudly so. I think Bachmann is perhaps living in a world that she makes up as she goes, so may be more crazy than stupid. It's a difficult call though.
I just was emailed that the University that awarded Congresswoman Bachmann her law degree was Oral Roberts University, wow, is anyone surprised?
