My boss, Matt Lewis, taking Michele Bachmann to task for her attacks on public employees, most notably Huma Abedin, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Hillary (who requires no introduction on Tumblr)
National Review, the magazine seen by many as the intellectual backbone of modern conservatism, spent years pushing back against conspiracy theories fostered by groups such as the John Birch Society. Their work was essential to keeping the right wing from being typecast as a bunch of loons and fools.
It appears we might need a similar effort today. Conservatism cannot allow itself to be the residence of cranks.
Unless they can provide some more evidence, Rep. Bachmann and the other Republicans making these accusations owe her an apology.
