Jamie Kilstein: Tea party thinks ‘facts are for gay people’
Comedian Jamie Kilstein, co-host of Citizen Radio, appeared Tuesday night on Countdown with Keith Olbermann — guest hosted by David Shuster — to discuss the misinformation from tea party favorites Congressman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and others.
Bachmann recently said that an HPV vaccine could cause mental retardation, a statement she was later forced to recant. Haley recently said that half of the people wanting work at the Energy Department’s Savannah River Site failed drug tests, but “>the Department of Energy denied the claim, noting that only hired employees were tested and only 1 percent failed.
“I think that facts are for gay people and socialists, and numbers and charts are scary and intimidating” for tea partiers, Kilstein joked.
