Michele Bachmann wants Americans "by the carload" to come to Washington next week so she can lead them through the halls of Congress to oppose health care reform. "This is our liberty and tyranny moment," she told Sean Hannity on Fox yesterday. "This is about patriotism and manning up." The Minnesota congresswoman plans a news conference at noon Thursday, after which she'll lead the masses through House office buildings, reports the Hill.

"I'd love to have every one of your viewers to join me so we can go up and down through the halls, find members of Congress, look at the whites of their eyes and say, 'Don't take away my health care.'" And one office in particular will get special attention. "We need to pay a House call on Nancy Pelosi and tell her what she can do with the Pelosi health care plan."
