Make her stop. It hurts.

"We're running out of rich people in this country."

There's more. She also appears to be making stuff up about ACORN.

Bachmann: I mean, if you think, ACORN - this is a group that's under Federal indictment...

Baker: Unbelievable

Bachmann: ...for voter fraud. ACORN - they've received a total of $53 million in direct Federal Grants since 1994. Do you know how much they're getting under this (the stimulus) bill?

Baker: Like $4 billion, I've heard.

Bachmann: $5 Billion.

Baker? $5 billion?

Bachmann: For ACORN.

Steve Benen was able to listen to more of it than the 52 seconds I posted and says:

There's no point in trying to fact-check such unhinged stupidity, but I should note that none of this is in anyway grounded in reality. I should also note that we're not talking about some strange nut screaming on a street corner; this is all coming from an elected member of Congress.

At one point, Bachmann told the host, "We are literally losing our country."

Congresswoman, you've literally lost something, but I don't think it's your country.

Minnesota, when will you wake up already? I live in California and have to deal with Teflon Arnuld, but she's just as humiliating.
