Seriously? And You Are In Congress?

I read this on California Faultline:  

Nancy Pelosi says she wants an aggressive energy policy to help save the planet, but a Republican Congresswoman from Minnesota says the world doesn’t need saving - Jesus already did it 2000 years ago!

“[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she’s just trying to save the planet,” (Rep. Michele) Bachmann said. “We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet — we didn’t need Nancy Pelosi to do that.”

So there. The planets been saved. The work’s been done. That’s not smog over L.A. - just mist. Nothing to see here. Move along. [via Star Tribune]

The article on the Star Tribune blog (linked above) is about energy policy and that Congresswoman Bachmann wants to approve offshore drilling, cuz the planet's fine.  If Ms. Bachmann really followed the ideals Jesus mentioned, she'd want to be a caretaker of what he "saved."  

Clearly the Congresswoman's question is:  "Where would Jesus drill?"
