(Stupid) High School Student Letter to Michele Bachmann

According to Yahoo.com, a letter a New Jersey high school sophomore wrote to Michelle Bachmann "is making the rounds on political blogs." One of the items the article brings up that is supposedly erroneous is Bachmann's position on the census. Yet, the article linked to point out the Bachmann is correct, "So the Constitution itself does not contain any requirement, as Bachmann claims."

Then the student pulls the feminist gender war gambit.
As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere. Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole.
No Congressperson has a responsibility to represent their gender. A great deal of the problems in our country arise from that sort of balkanizing "protected class" thought. Congresspersons have a responsibility to act in the best interests of their constituents regardless of race, gender, religion, national origin, etc and to do so within the framework of the Constitution and other laws.

Having a little high school College Bowl on The Constitution might be entertaining for some. But, knowledge of The Constitution is not necessarily an indicator of a desire or willingness to follow The Constitution as well illustrated by Barack Obama who taught constitutional law.

Of course, such impetuous actions are common by high school students. For obvious reasons (the MSM is terribly liberal), the media has decided this letter is a good weapon to use to attack Bachmann. Who's going to be mean to a little high school girl? Once again, we have liberals hiding behind a (young) woman's skirt.
