Bachmann implies Cain plan could be devil's work

(CNN) - A handful of Republican candidates took aim at Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan at Tuesday night's presidential debate, but only one went so far as to imply it could be the devil's work.

"When you take the 9-9-9 plan and you turn it upside won, the devil is in the details," Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota said during the New Hampshire debate, alluding to the number 666, which is commonly connected to Satan.

    Oh for Pete's sake! It was a play on words. Anyone who can't see that is an idiot.

    The Tea Party is over, they are like rats jumping off a sinking ship. Sarah stirred them up and left them holding the bag, "tea bag" that is!

    I would have said this was a bad joke or complete nonsense – until this week. This week i heard enough nonsense from this field of GOP hopefuls to convince me that religeous bigotry is alive and well in America. Whether Michelle really thinks that there is ANY correlation between Cain's 999 and 666 is up to history (She'd have to be CRAZY to think that, but this is, after all, Michelle Bachmann – the High Priestess of Teavangelical looneyness)... But how many deluded followers of the GOP/TP were listening and said to themselves, 'Ya know – she's got a point!' ??
