FAIL Quote of the Day: And yet they’re polar opposites

Michele Bachmann
Either very very stupid, very very ignorant, or just very very confused. (Or possibly all)

From the village idiot of politics, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on Hannity’s show:

‘Oh sure, that's all they have left now, is they use pejorative terms, hateful terms, against those who are carrying the message. So whether they're attacking conservative talk radio, or conservative TV, or whether it's Internet sites -- I mean, let's face it, what's the Obama administration doing? They're advocating net neutrality, which is essentially censorship of the Internet!

‘This is the Obama administration advocating censorship of the Internet. Why? They want to silence the voices that are opposing them.’

Okay … Either she doesn’t understand that net neutrality is actually the exact opposite of Internet censorship, or she believes that “net neutrality” actually means forcing neutrality (ie. political correctness), such as some sort of Internet version of the Fairness Doctrine.

It’s now evident how she can confuse fascism with socialism all the time (along with all other teabaggers). Hey, it’s okay – I sometimes get my polar opposites mixed up, too.

Actually, no, I don’t.
