Minneapolis, Minn. -- In an interview with a Twin Cities' radio station today, Minnesota rep. Michele Bachmann floated the idea of providing struggling American farmers with free feed and fertilizer consisting of ground up liberals.
"It's a win/win situation," said Bachmann. "Cattle farmers will no longer have to pay for expensive feed or fertilizer, and we'll get rid of all those un-American, terrorist-loving liberals at the same time. It's perfect."
Asked whether this wouldn't be considered mass murder or genocide, Bachmann scoffed. "That would only apply if we were talking about actual Americans. Then it would be a crime. But these are liberals. Don't you see? They hate America and every thing it stands for. Why should they be allowed to suck up perfectly good air? That's the real question."
A caller wondered how the process would work and whether there might be a financial reward for turning in liberals. "Oh, absolutely," Bachmann replied. "We would have to depend on our citizens to do the patriotic thing and hand over any liberals they know to the government. Our nation is at stake here people. This is serious."
Bachmann said she has held talks with national feed and fertilizer companies, and that they have expressed guarded interest in the idea.
