Being Fair to Michelle Bachmann

A high school student has challenged Michelle Bachmann to a debate after seeing that Bachmann has been making statements on the Constitution which are “factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted.”

Is this really fair? I mean, a high school student. The only way a debate might be fair to Bachmann would be if it was at someone closer to her knowledge level, such as an elementary school student or a Tea Party member. A debate between Bachmann and the second would be rather redundant, so I guess it we will have to set up a match with an elementary school student.

Here is the full text of the challenge;

Dear Representative Bachmann,

My name is Amy Myers. I am a Cherry Hill, New Jersey sophomore attending Cherry Hill High School East. As a typical high school student, I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted. The frequency and scope of these comments prompted me to write this letter.

Though I am not in your home district, or even your home state, you are a United States Representative of some prominence who is subject to national media coverage. News outlets and websites across this country profile your causes and viewpoints on a regular basis. As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere. Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole.

Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:

I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics.

Hopefully, we will be able to meet for such an event, as it would prove to be enlightening.

Sincerely yours,
Amy Myers

    “…responsibility to better represent your gender nationally.” Definitely a public school student.

    Sorry, but in your haste to dispel the legitimacy of what this high school student says, you embarrass yourself by attacking her grammar, which, by the way is perfect, instead of the issue she is making. Again….you embarrass yourself and whichever hateful group you represent…which is quite obvious.

    So how many death threats has this brave girl received so far?
    because that is ALWAYS the next step for the teabagger nation

    Of course the teabagger queen will never respond…

    How could she possibly respond? She can’t respond based upon any facts as it is true that she misrepresents what is in the Constitution. Typically, while they might not necessarily go as far as death threats, right wingers respond by fabricating attacks against their opponents. Their usual responses look bad enough under normal circumstances. They would look far worse in response to a high school student.
