Bachmann rachets up the crazy

God bless Michele Bachmann.

No, really. I mean it.

She is God's true gift to the Democrats.

Just when I was beginning to get worried that the Republicans might come up with a frontrunner who is just far enough center to sway moderate voters, up pops Michele with her special brand of wingnut crazy to win the Iowa straw poll.

Thank you God!

Some quotes from Michele can give you a clue about her:

''[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said she has even said she is trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that 2,000 years ago.''
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, Oct. 2008

''What I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too.''
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, getting her John Waynes mixed up during an interview after launching her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, where she grew up. The beloved movie star John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, three hours away. The John Wayne that Waterloo was home to is John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer. (June 27, 2011)

''The President of the United States will be taking a trip over to India that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day.''
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, grossly exaggerating the expense of Obama's trip, which cost a fraction of that ($200 million is more than the entire war in Afghanistan costs per day), Nov. 3, 2010

''Unfortunately she is now suffering from breast cancer, so keep her in your prayers. This may be an opportunity for her now to be open to some spiritual things, now that she is suffering with that physical disease. She is a lesbian.''
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, suggesting that gay singer Melissa Etheridge should repent after getting cancer, Nov. 2004

''I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or anti-America?''
—Rep. Michelle Bachmann, calling for a new McCarthyism, Oct. 2008

''I just take the Bible for what it is, I guess, and recognize that I am not a scientist, not trained to be a scientist. I'm not a deep thinker on all of this. I wish I was. I wish I was more knowledgeable, but I'm not a scientist.''
—Michele Bachmann, September 2003

Thanks so much for Michele, God. I honestly wish I believed in you, 'cause you're the bestest god there is!


(P.S. I find it hilarious how often the word "batshit" comes up in a Google search of the phrase "Bachmann" and "crazy"!)

Great photo! But wait till you see this one (tee hee hee):

While some may think sexual connotations, it was the eyes that got me...

So much of the commentary on MBach's Iowa success focuses on the politics that I wonder why her role as home-town girl is ignored. She is likely the Favorite Daughter to many of the voters, not some unknown outsider. If not for this edge, the straw might have piled higher around Ron Paul.
As for RPaul, the one important datum to keep in focus is August 30, 1935. This is his birthday. He will be 77 years old on Saturday. Reagan was 69 when he became our oldest President and we all know how that ended.

Yup. And Americans will vote him in for another four years. Get used to the idea, pal.

To OldSwede: I hadn't thought about the issue of Ron Paul's age, but then, there's probably several small airplanes going by above you right now that are being piloted quite competently by folks well into their 90's. Sure, there are many more elderly folks down on the ground who can think of nothing more than how to find the toilet. I'd rank Ron Paul with the aviators and the other Ron with the piddlers...

I want a leader that's more like JFK, and Obama has turned out to be nothing more than a tool ( The last several years has proved that so abundantly that there's no longer a difference between the two partys in my mind. America needs a fresh start. I'm saying that from the perspective of a life-long Democrat. Because the difference has become so meaningless, it doesn't bother me that Dr. Paul is (R), because he's clearly in a class of his own, and the MIC is terrified of him:

Sorry I haven't learned how to make the links I leave here "clickable" yet, folks. These are short but relevant, and well worth watching.

Airlines have mandatory retirement ages for a reason. Sure, some private planes may be piloted by 90 year olds, but the 747s aren't.

And isn't our nation at least as important as a 747? Do we need another Reagan falling asleep at the wheel?

lakezoarian said...

Of course it is, Bob.

It's SO frustrating that what seems to me to be the only contender that can't be bought is at such an advanced age.

On a happier note, I've been mighty pleased with some of the positions that my Rep. Chris Murphy has taken lately. I'd work hard for someone like that, if he keeps it up.

I was there when everyone said Reagan couldn't win, heheh. It took Carter to show what Democrat idoicy causes a country and behold we have a guy who makes Jimma look like a poser. In fact the Bamster is like Jimma Carter on Crack with a Gun. LOL!

"In fact the Bamster is like Jimma Carter on Crack with a Gun."

That's racist.
