Michele Bachmann, August 6, 2008:

“This is their agenda,” Bachmann states bluntly. “I know it is hard to believe, it’s hard to fathom — but this is ‘mission accomplished’ for them,” she asserts. “They want Americans to take transit and move to the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live in tenements, [and] take light rail to their government jobs. That’s their vision for America.”

El Tinklenberg campaign ad, October 21, 2008:

As Transportation Commissioner, El Tinklenberg… built our first light rail.

We’re coming for you, Michele. And we’re coming on light rail.

  1. It truly is funny how much the folks who opposed say Portland’s light rail still try to claim its a failure (the latest claim is that its a “drug train”) despite evidence that it reduced care use, increased property values near the stops, etc…

  2. Does Tinklenburg’s smile remind anyone else of McCain’s?  If he starts every sentence with “my friends” I won’t be able to support him no matter how good he is on the issues!

  3. I always thought his name was Tinkleberg!  Then I watched the video was like, wow, how was I so wrong for so long.

    Hmm, maybe people thought that “Bush” sounded like “Kerry”…

  4. “Liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God.”

    — Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC), quoted by Politico. When confronted, the congressman’s staff denied he said it, but the audio proves otherwise.

  5. but I just got an email from DCCC asking me for money for her. Well you know if 1 million and change doesn’t do the trick there it ain’t happening. There are plenty of races where they could use 100k

  6. In a year, a new light rail is opening right through the conservative heart of her district.  If Bachmann were to win (we’ll see, this district is damn conservative in some areas), and then this light rail will be widely popular (I cant wait to use it, takes me to my parents house) I wonder if Bachmann will change her tune.
