You seemed to miss the point. The cash was for her and her family farm, not her voters.

Quite gracious of you, Mr. C!

What self-respecting, big-gubment-hating, scrotum-savoring teabagger would be on the receiving end of socialist welfare payments? Answer: Bachmann! Well, darn, another Teabagger bites the dust. Guess that's better than biting the sack...
