Bachmann: "This is really the final leap to socialism"

The Minnesota congresswoman is back, and this time she's talking about the Democrats implementing "radical ideas [from] college campuses."

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., truly is one of our finer members of Congress. And by "finer" I mean "most amusing."

It hasn't been long since the congresswoman embarrassed herself on MSNBC's "Hardball" with a performance that put her re-election campaign in jeopardy. On Thursday, she appeared on Bill Bennett's radio show and put on another stellar show.

"I think what we're seeing is an implementation of all of the radical ideas that Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill, the radical ideas that we've seen on some college campuses, they're now being implemented in our government and they're taking a nefarious route, Bachmann said. "If you look at FDR, LBJ, and Barack Obama, this is really the final leap to socialism."

You be da man, Rep. Bachmann. You be da man.
