The splendidly mad Michele Bachmann – a potential Republican presidential candidate in the US – has come up with a fantastic objection to state subsidised nursing kits.
As you may know, Michelle Obama’s campaign to promote breast-feeding by offering tax incentives on breast pumps and other nursing kit, has got the Republicans’ Communism-radar working overtime. And when there are reds under the cot, good ol’ bonkers Bachmann is gonna be the one to reach under and inspect the contents of their nappies.
In an interview on the equally insane Laura Ingraham’s talk radio show, slayer of socialists Michele Bachmann said:
“This is very consistent with where the hard left is coming from. For them, government is the answer to every problem.”
“I’ve given birth to five babies and I breast fed every single one of these babies,” she added. “To think that government has to go out and buy my breast pump for my babies? You wanna talk about the nanny state, I think you just got a new definition.”
So there’s your problem. The ‘hard left’ won’t keep their hands off your tits. Nothing is sacred. But Bachmann is out to rescue them and to return your breasts to the private sphere, where they belong.
Keep an eye on her. She is tremendous value. We are sending her a copy of At Ebbw Vale. She needs one.
