Michele Bachmann Accuses Voters of Being "Radical Extremists"

Rep. Michele Bachmann recently hit back at LCV for announcing her as the 2010 Dirty Dozen People's Choice winner in a speech at a recent fundraiser:
"It was just announced this week that the League of Conservation voters -- the kind of radical extremists on the enviro side -- have made me their number one target to get rid of this year."
A total of three Dirty Dozen nominees have now used term "extremists" against us: Bachmann, Blanche Lincoln and Roy Blunt. The dramatic label seems to be the only response these candidates can muster in their own defense.

But who, exactly, are these "extremists?" The decision to place Bachmann on this year's Dirty Dozen list came as the result of an online poll, in which Americans across the country overwhelmingly voted to make her defeat a top campaign priority.

Over 60 percent of the votes went to Bachmann. That's what happens when you call global warming "all voodoo, nonsense, hokum, a hoax," and call for a "armed and dangerous revolution against measures to curb greenhouse-gas emissions."

Who sounds like an extremist now?
