Bachmann: Democrats made up tea partiers’ racial epithets

No kidding. The Minnesota Independent reports that she said on some conservative talk radio show that Democrats made this up:

“The media wants you to believe that tea party patriots are toothless hillbillies,” she said. “This is a very sophisticated crowd. And then these charges from Democrats that they were spit upon, that there were racial epithets — there’s no one who saw anything.”

The trouble is, as the Independent points out, that several lawmakers corraborated the racial epithets and a CNN producer saw the slur against Barney Frank.

So that’s another lie added to Bachmann’s tally. (Don’t Christians have a prohibition on lying?) To be honest, we don’t think tea partiers are toothless hillbillies. We just think they’re racists. If the shoe fits…
