Blade columnist names a couple of female GOP politicians as "evil"
Peter Rosenstein has a biting column in the Washington Blade this week, “What does evil do when it retires?” That’s specifically about congresswoman Michele Bachman (R-MN), as in the link here. There’s all the hype about the connections in her family to reparative therapy, and I heard a lot about her from friends in Minneapolis on a return visit in June 2011. But her worst deeds were her irresponsible behavior and taunts against Barack Obama during the debt ceiling crisis in the summer of 2011, and then again in the fall of 2013, where it was complicated by a government shutdown. We can’t afford such foolishness now, with real enemies abroad.
The article also mentions Sarah Palin, McCain’s running mate in 2008, but her problem was more that she didn’t know anything, as in the HBO movie “Game Change” (Movies blog, March 11, 2012).
