Michael van der Galien

Left Tries to Smear Bachmann

Posted on December 23 2009 5:25 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

Politico’s Glenn Thrush links to an article that brands Michele Bachmann (featured elsewhere on NRO today) a “welfare queen” because her family apparently owns a farm and receives farm subsidies.

Thrush calls this “selective socialism.” Neither Thrush nor the author of the article in question found it worth mentioning that Bachmann voted against the 2008 reauthorization of the farm bill, and then voted against it again when the House voted to override President Bush’s veto.

More at NRO’s the Corner.
