Though reality-based it was not,
Michele Bachman still gave it a shot…
But it seems it’s too much
For her colleagues to touch—
They’re denying her Islamist plot!
A handful of Republican lawmakers led by Ms. Bachmann of Minnesota sent letters on June 13 to five federal agencies demanding investigations of a conspiracy to influence American foreign policy to favor the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes.
A letter to the State Department singled out Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, prompting an impassioned defense on the Senate floor on Wednesday from Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona.
“These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way,” Mr. McCain said. “These attacks have no logic, no basis, and no merit and they need to stop. They need to stop now.”
Apparently, this John McCain is somehow related to the one who ran for president, but this one has integrity.
