Due to Minnesota Republican Representative Michele Bachmann's questioning the patriotism of Barack Obama and members of Congress on Chris Matthews' "Hardball," her Democratic challenger, El Tinklenberg, has received more than $1.4 million in contributions.
Bachmann's campaign states that it has received hundreds of thousands since her comments. In an ominous sign, however, the Republican National Committee has cancelled two upcoming TV ads.
The above ad for Tinklenberg states it correctly: Bachmann represents "the worst in Washington, even questioning the patriotism of others in Congress."
Bachmann's divisive comments, mentioned in the Tinklenberg ad above, evoke the McCarthyism of the 1950s and the McCain-Palin attacks of today. To help support Tinklenberg, click here.
