Seriously, Michele Bachmann's constituents should be embarrassed. Yesterday she asks Geithner:

"Would you categorically renounce the United States moving away from the dollar and going to a global currency as suggested this morning by China and also by Russia. Mr. Secretary?

Geithner: I would, yes.

Bachmann: And the Federal Reserve Chair?

Bernanke: I would also."

I can't take it. Hilzoy has the math on this fool. Here's the video. Wow.
