The biggest political scandal of the day is the one no one's talking about: three right-wing members of Congress flew to Egypt to deliberately undermine U.S. foreign policy.



As Max Fisher reported, Bachmann, Gohmert, and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) -- arguably the three most ridiculous lawmakers in Congress -- traveled to Cairo, met directly with the leader of the Egyptian coup, and then filmed a video praising both the uprising and the violent crackdown on pro-Morsi demonstrators that followed.

This is more than just a random stunt from strange politicians. The official position of the United States was that the post-overthrow violence was needlessly brutal and shocking, so much so that aid to Egypt may well be suspended. And yet, Bachmann, Gohmert, and King traveled to Cairo to deliver a conflicting message -- apparently because they felt like it.

Bachmann, at her most Bachmann-esque, even went so far as to suggest the Muslim Brotherhood was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. "We have seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood has posed around the world. We stand against this great evil," she said, adding: "We remember who caused 9/11. We remember who it was that killed 3,000 brave Americans."

Obviously, the substance of the video is crazy, but the fact that it exists at all is what's truly amazing. Three sitting members of Congress decided on their own to do some foreign policy freelancing, contradicting the foreign policy of the United States, and making a propaganda video for those responsible for a military coup, offering support for a deadly crackdown on dissenters.

Since when is this considered acceptable?

The three stooges congressional membersare indicative of the body of voters who voted them into office. Their mindset are the same as the three stooges -congressional members.

SPF3 You must be talking about the stooges that voted Obama, Biden, Rangel, Grayson, Hank Johnson, Pelosi, Reid, etc. into office. I can't think of a bigger bunch of stooges.

Chief, you just exposed the hypocrisy of this blog. On one hand independents, conservatives and libertarians acknowledge that the Democrats are more than guilty of this act and that Bachman and her crew aren’t setting a good example for America either. However Democrats, liberals and progressives are acting like this is something new and hasn’t been done before because of a black man in the Whitehouse!

SF3, if you really cared and conducted research on Democrats, especially President Obama as you do diligently in regards to sports, I'm sure that your analysis in the political arena would be more favorable to free market enterprise and less government.
