I could be wrong, but I do believe there is a trend in extreme right-wing thinking. It goes something like this: If you dream it up and it makes sense to you then it must be fact. That is the only way to explain the following statement from Michele Bachmann regarding the S&P downgrade:
For the last two weeks, I led the fight against raising the debt limit
It was a $2.4 trillion blank check that caused the downgrade
In case you think you read that wrong, I’ll explain the Bachmann logic. If the U.S. had not raised the debt ceiling, and therefore defaulted, the S&P downgrade would have been avoided. Really?
