Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is scheduled to appear on the syndicated radio talk show The Alex Jones Show, according to Jones. We are torn!

On the one hand, Alex Jones is a (terribly entertaining) unhinged conspiracy theorist who rants about the New World Order and FEMA Concentration Camps and produces crazy movies about how 9/11 was an inside job and how Barack Obama is basically Hitler. All of this is well and good for a late-night radio talk show host! But for an elected member of the House of Representatives to appear on his show might strike some people as a sort of implicit endorsement of his more outre beliefs.

But on the other hand, by publicizing this and pointing out that it's a terrible idea, there is a chance that the appearance won't happen, and that would be a tragedy, as it is sure to be hugely entertaining. Can you imagine the new and exciting crazy things Bachmann will just state as self-evident fact, on cable TV, after a couple minutes with Alex Jones?
