Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
she is obviously a proud American, as she works for our State Dept.
do we REALLY want her appearing before a Senate Committee, saying "I have not now nor have I ever been a member of the Communist Party"???????????
do we REALLY want to do this again?
So when it's done to Bachman it's "publically slandering and disrespecting a member of the United States Congress" but when Bachman uses her office to slander another person, it's "reasonable to question an aide's security clearance"? If Bachman can question the standing of a person who has pass the security clearance as others have, who has never been shown to have done anything wrong to merit the accusations claimed by Bachman base on nothing but what she built up in her mind, I can can question Bachman's sanity, especially given her words and actions in the public.
