It’s interesting to see a liberal like film critic Richard Roeper come to the defense of Michele Bachmann over her joke yesterday about Hurricane Irene vis-à-vis the deficit and debt. There’s no question that Bachmann was joking. Speaking from personal experience, liberals take themselves way too seriously. I mean there are liberals who really believe that Sarah Palin’s target map led to Gabby Giffords shooting.
But that said, I’m not sure if joking about Hurricane Irene was a good move by Bachmann. I’m sure she meant no harm but for a lot of people Hurricane Irene wasn’t a laughing matter. For some people, it turned out to be a matter of life and death. Keep in mind that if Bachmann should find herself elected Commander-in-Chief she probably won’t be inclined to joke about a natural disaster which occurs under her watch.
