Bachmann Blocks Obama Birthplace Resolution

H. Res. 593, a resolution “recognizing and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th State,” contains this provision: “Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii”

BACHMANN: Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. [...]

REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS (D-MD): Further proceedings on this motion will be postponed.

The bat-shit crazy Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) actually did us a huge favor by calling for a quorum. Now when the resolution does come back up, it will be with a roll call vote. Let the 'Birthers' stand up in front of congress and be accountable while the cameras are rolling for all the world to see.

Has it ever been proven that Bachmann was born on this planet? She seems to spend most of her time out in orbit somewhere.
