Michele Bachmann has announced that she intends to shut down the EPA in a single stroke. In fact, she treated that as an applause line. Yet according to the polls I've seen, most voters strongly favor keeping the EPA. Are Republicans so confident of victory that they feel they can espouse deeply unpopular views? I must confess that the attitude of Bachmann and her cohorts -- "I don't give a shit what folks think"
-- has me spooked.
