We haven’t heard from Rep. Michele Bachmann in awhile, but it seems she’s right where we left her: The congresswoman from Minnesota told an audience it doesn’t have to obey the new health-care laws, should they pass. “Mark my words, the American people aren’t gonna take this lying down,” Bachmann said at a rally on Saturday. “We aren’t gonna play their game, we’re not gonna pay their taxes. They want us to pay for this? Because we don’t have to. We don’t have to. We don’t have to follow a bill that isn’t law. That’s not the American way, and that’s not what we’re going to do.” She went on, “This is dictatorial, what they are doing. we are not compelled to follow a non-law just because Obama and Pelosi tells us we have to.”

The First National Tea Party Convention in Nashville next month will be closed to the press except for a small number of “selected” journalists. The restrictions apply to speeches by Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. While organizers will help press set up interviews with some speakers, Palin will not be available. Organizers are setting up two unspecified events that the press can cover.
Michele Bachmann is evoking the name of another female Republican wingnut in a blatant ‘begging for money’ pitch. “Don’t let them Palinize me!” Bachmann writes in the subject line. “With Governor Palin taking a well-deserved step out of the spotlight, it appears that I may be absorbing even more of the liberals’ scorn.” She goes on to complain that, like Palin, the press is now attacking her children. Bachmann is referring to an article that commends her son for enlisting in AmeriCorps, which Bachmann has called a “re-education camp.”
