Clinton on Bachmann's McCarthyist Revival

[Content Note: Islamophobia.]

I haven't written anything about Representative Michele Bachmann's latest bigoted tomfoolery, her war on "rooting out" Muslim spies in the US government, because there's nothing I could say that wouldn't be self-evident to anyone with a scintilla of decency.

I will, however, pass on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's comment, when asked about Bachmann's crusade, which has included among its targets Clinton's longtime aid, Huma Abedin, who Bachmann charges with being a plant of the Muslim Brotherhood:
Leadership is incredibly important. Leaders have to be active in stepping in and sending messages about protecting the diversity within their countries. And frankly, I don’t see enough of that, and I want to see more of it.
Translation: Hey, Michele Bachmann! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck youuuuuuuu.
