I am something of a connoisseur of the deeply malicious idiocy of Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison. I have followed his career closely on Power Line, and I wrote the Weekly Standard article “Louis Farrakhan’s first Congressman” about him, introducing him to a national audience as he was about to become the first Muslim elected to Congress.
A friend sent me a video of Ellison’s recent remarks on Minnesota Sixth District Rep. Michele Bachmann. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. The remarks are so stupid as to be laughable, but coming from Ellison they are that and more. Thanks to the folks at Fox & Friends for adding the perfect graphic background to accompany Ellison’s remarks.
My heading, incidentally, is adapted from the famous concluding stanza of Robert Burns’s “To a Louse.”
