It looks like the embattled leader of the abortion ban ballot initiative from Kalispell is displaying her fading grasp on reality once again.
In a recent email missive about her efforts, Annie Bukacek assumes the black helicopters are already circling when she writes this accusation about Montana's county elections officials:
It is a near-certainty there will be fraud in some of the county elections departments.
Bukacek certainly knows something about fraud: she's under investigation for being a perpetrator of it.
In the same rambling email, Bukacek also mentions her efforts to recruit tea-baggers to her cause. I can see why Bukacek's minions are drawn to tea-baggers. They seem to share a penchant for boldly displaying their cognitive limitations. I'm not saying that's all bad--it makes it easier for the rest of us to avoid hiring them.
The fact is, Bukacek's prototypical supporter seems to be "that one guy" who, if he continues along his current trajectory, will likely spend a considerable portion of his 30s as that one local nutter in every Denny's who spends his time filling notebooks with manifestos.
Not the tea-baggers.
This small, whiney minority of the population that is virtually impotent and have no impact on policy is the wrong target for Bukacek. Heck, they aren't even trying to have a part in any movement FOR anything - they are the "new anarchists". They aren't the types who are going get behind a movement and volunteer. Nor do they seem like the types that want the government to have more say in private medical decisions.
