"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Dark spot in a bright future

The hateful Michelle Bachmann held her seat in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District. Bachmann was the beast who called Obama and House Democrats "anti-American."
Bachmann overcame a polarizing comment she made last month that Barack Obama "may have anti-American views" to defeat Democratic challenger Elwyn Tinklenberg. Bachmann, a freshman representing the state's 6th Congressional District, had been favored to win re-election, but the comment turned the race into a tossup.
The only upside here is that with the huge majority that the Democrats now have in Congress, her voice will be further marginalized.
