And is at the least a likely VP contender for 2012But Minnesotans might soon have to give up some of their hard-won reputation for quiet reasonableness thanks to one of their own, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a fiercely rightwing darling of the Tea Party, who is rapidly becoming one of the most famous politicians in America and may yet outshine Sarah Palin as a potential Republican presidential pick for 2012.
She is due to star in a coming rightwing documentary called Socialism: A Clear and Present Danger, in which she says American citizens have become "indentured servants" of their government. The film uses clips of Obama alongside Stalin and Fidel Castro. "We need to reverse course so we can get back to freedom," she says.

Michele Bachmann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1993, Bachmann and other parents in Stillwater, Minnesota opened New Heights Charter School. The oversight of New Heights soon encountered problems when a group of concerned parents and the school district questioned if the insertion of Christianity into the school's curriculum amounted to using public tax money to fund a religious school.
According to Stephens, school officials also refused to allow the in-school screening of the Disney film Aladdin, saying that it endorsed witchcraft and promoted paganism.
Bachmann is a member of a church that is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, whose doctrine teaches that the Roman Catholic papacy is the Antichrist identified in Scripture.
"There is 200 times more mercury in each filling in Congresswoman Bachmann's teeth than there is in a compact fluorescent light bulb."
Bachmann supports the teaching of intelligent design in public school science classes.
She wrote that education laws passed by Congress in 2001, including "School To Work" and "Goals 2000", created a new national school curriculum that embraced "a socialist, globalist worldview; loyalty to all government and not America."
Bachmann said that the gay community was specifically targeting children and that "our children... are the prize for this community." Bachmann has said that people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered suffer from "sexual dysfunction" and "sexual identity disorders."
It looks like the US faces a stark choice...
