This is just so spot on, had to call attention to it. As per, emphasis mine.
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.
If there were to go down, I think a lot of people would realize what a good actress Michelle Bachmann is. She has to be acting, no one can be that stupid in reality. BTW, this actually *is* a guiding conservative philosophical principle…the one where you tell the people one set of facts/justifications, and the elites another.
Bachmann acts like a complete idiot to make her constituents feel smart. Or at least that’s my working theory, this debate would be a good test case for it. On the one hand, Bachmann as a law degree…on the other, it’s from Oral Roberts University. Steer the debate towards science, history, or any set of verifiable facts and it should be a slaughter.
I would also sincerely like to see an igneous rock debate Ron Paul on economics. While it would be one-sided, I can guarantee the rock would say less false, misleading, or easily disprovable things.
