Oh, The Big Brother Census

The Bachmann Conundrum has started to take effect. Republicans are not filling out census forms which will cause them to be undercounted, causing a loss of federal funds and congressional seats.

As of Friday afternoon, only 27 percent of Texas households had filled in and returned their census forms — well below the national average of 34 percent — according to computer data from the U.S. Census Bureau. In Harris County, the response rate is 23 percent. Houston's returns are running at 21 percent.
Meanwhile, Democrats are the political group most motivated to complete the census and fill it back--and Republicans are following leaders like Ron Paul and Michelle Bachmann in refusing to fill it out. Some conservative counties in Texas have a response rate as low as five percent...
Keep going, Republicans! You're doing great! Maybe Bachmann's seat will disappear.
