“I am a Socialist. I live to the extreme left of mere liberals.”Lawrence O’Donnell, November 5, 2010

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Michele Bachmann, as has been pointed out in this space before, has a family farm that has received over a quarter of million dollars in direct cash from the federal government. That is, of course, in addition to her federal salary of $174,000 for her real full-time job as a member of Congress. Thanks to Sam Stein at the Huffington Post today, with we now have yet another example of Bachmann political dependence, career dependence on socialism.

Not-so-shockingly, O’Donnell was cherry-picking Huff Po’s piece to come up with this, Noel Sheppard has the story.
