The only place Bachman belongs is in the cast of One Flew Over the CooCoo's Nest.

But hey, maybe we can have the complete wacko Republican Ticket of Sara Palin and Michelle Bachman.

The sad part is that not even the NOW wants a piece of that action.

Palin and Bachmann will be the head Mad Haters at the Tea Bagger convention in Nashville, TN. in February. There is talk of becoming a third party.

From reports in Nashville, there will be a mass exodus of residents hopeing to avoid idiocy by osmossis that threatens to linger in the air during and after the event.

Nah ... from what I've heard, that Palin lady was talking about God a lot in her book.

At first I was thinking that we should see if we can get L. Cheney to run with Palin, but the more I think about it ... we need a Palin / Bachmann ticket. Those two would be an absolute hit with the neocons.

Yuppers, a Palin / Bachmann ticket would be a good ticket as well.

That idea of a third party seems to be going on the right direction. It would be great to have the right wing vote divided again to ensure that they lose again. Remember Ross Perot?

Bachmann yes I truly hope she runs Her and palin running together should appeal to the 20 or so percent of the extreme right wing republican party.Those from "jesusland" and the "real America" the rest of the moderates in this country wont even give them a glance.

jack-d-ripper wrote (with his brain in absentia I think):
If you use a Socialist health care system..........

VA , or Single pay TRI-CARE, Doesn't that mean you are a Socialist?

Kinda like Bachman allowing her son to Join the re-education camp?


First: Anyone, man or woman, who supports this country through the armed forces during wartime has my blessing to "free" health care for the rest of their life. Socialist model be damned; it is a small price WE pay for the huge price they have or could have paid. to all you vets, THANK YOU!

Second: As for Bachman's son joining an (government sponsored) organization I would otherwise rail against, see the first point -- men and women put their lives on the line just so citizens can make those choices. And since the kid is 18+ he is able to make those choices independent of his parents (and live with the consequences of those choices independent of his parents, as well.)

Semper fi,

AmeriCorps
In 2009, Bachmann referred to the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, an expansion to AmeriCorps (a federal community service organization), stating:

It’s under the guise of — quote — volunteerism. But it’s not volunteers at all. It’s paying people to do work on behalf of government.... I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums.

The original bill called for an exploration of whether a mandatory public service program could be established, but that entire section on creating a "Congressional Commission on Civic Service" was stripped from the bill.

In August 2009, political opponents of Bachmann publicized in the local media and the blogosphere what they described as the "ironic" fact that her son, Harrison, joined Teach for America which is a member of the AmeriCorps program.

So let me get this straight its paying people to do work on behalf of the government,like...
the armed forces
the FBI
the CIA
the post office
Oh and let's not forget being a congresswoman.the lady is a nutcase!

No ... but I can't wait to see if enough people are foolish enough to vote her in as a candidate.

Wouldn't that just be hilarious if the teabaggers chose her to represent them? No wait ... wouldn't that just serve them right?

I can see it right now ... the teabaggers nominate Palin and Bachmann ... ... and they split the Republican votes ...

Cotter...ya know I love ya. Thanks for the giggles.
The most disappointing part of the current state of policitics and forums is the incessant need to reduce it all to the middle school level. Palin, Bachmann,and to a much lesser extent, McCain, in that order, fell down to the lowest common denominator in trying to communicate their ideas, but needing to tear down the ideaas of others and play the labeling game. Yes, good people have fallen down to that level as well, but it took a decade or two of being nice, too nice, to respond to the effectivness of the hate fest that ushered loonies into offices, and hate groups to spawn in response to a half white guy. Some times, just being honorable and nice is not adequate to deal with supremely pissed off sh(t headas. They hate when stupidity and dishonesty is met with truth and integrity. So it goes.

It seems to me, that the bulk of the American electorate ultimately selects which ever candidate seems most likely to cater to their idea of what needs doing, or NOT doing. That doesn't mean we'll be entirely rational, but it does mean that we are unlikely to vote in someone who doesn't appear to care about what worries us.

Nothing I've read about Bachman indicates to me that she has any ideas or intentions to address the concerns I have for the future. Right now, I would say that I like Romney better than the rest, because he seems to have less of an inclination to see half of America as his enemy than do so many other GOP candidates.

McCain was more like that too, but unfortunately HE chose to bow down and kiss the Bush administrations toes, right before running, as a way to get the nomination.

I think Bachman is like so many modern candidates on the right. They are copying the leftists of the 1970's. The SHORT CUT to national prominence, is to say controversial-sounding things that get people angry, or that already angry people will be fooled into supporting you, because they think you are on their side.

The problem is, that it isn't enough to hate half of America. Successfully blaming half of the country for all of it's woes, is literally like stabbing your left arm because you like your right one better. That's what the Bachman-type folks are all about.

In Major Gaffe, Bachmann Confuses Ass, Hole in Ground
Misspeaks about Grand Canyon

ARIZONA (The Borowitz Report) – In a fledgling campaign that has already produced more than its share of gaffes, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) today confused her ass with a hole in the ground during a campaign swing through Arizona.

Speaking to a group of supporters in Phoenix, Rep. Bachmann raised eyebrows when she said, “It’s great to be here in Arizona, the home of my ass.”

After her comment was greeted with confused murmurs from the crowd, Rep. Bachmann quickly added, “Oh wait, did I say my ass? I meant the Grand Canyon.”

Being unable to tell her ass from a hole in the ground, especially a prominent one such as the Grand Canyon, is only one of many challenges facing Rep. Bachmann in her quest for the Presidency, according to political science professor Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota.

“Michele Bachmann is a staunch believer in the theory of Intelligent Design,” he said. “However, Intelligent Design cannot explain Michele Bachmann.”

But Dr. Logsdon added that Rep. Bachmann remains an attractive candidate, especially for those Republican voters who find former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin “too cerebral.”

“When Sarah Palin looks at Michele Bachmann, she must feel the way the Jonas Brothers feel about Justin Bieber,” he said.

In other political news, GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said today that "marriage must be defined as the union between a man, a woman, and the man's staff member at the time."

Here's a piece about her supporters:

About a week ago I did a post about a 16 year-old high school sophomore named Amy Myers who had challenged Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) to a debate or a test. The young Cherry Hill (New Jersey) schoolgirl had gotten tired of Bachmann's seeming inability (or unwillingness) to get her facts straight about her opponents, American history, or the Constitution.

No one really thought Bachmann would take Myers up on her challenge. It was just a humorous way to point out the many gaffes and mistakes being continually made by the congresswoman. But Miss Myers underestimated to lack of class and common decency of some of Bachmann's teabagging followers. These people can't take a joke and react viciously to any suggestion that their heroine Bachmann might not be perfect.

After the story started getting some media attention commenters on some teabagger websites have threatened to make Myers' address public, and many have even threatened violence. And it doesn't stop with comments on websites. The young woman has received mail that calls her a whore, threatens to harm her physically, and even threats to rape her!

Maybe this kind of behavior should have been expected since a lot of these teabaggers seem to be devoid of brain activity. But it takes a special kind of demented and perverted cretin to threaten to harm or rape a 16 year old schoolgirl who has done nothing wrong. A decent person would be proud of this young girl getting involved in politics (regardless of whether she was on the left, the right, or just a moderate). This country would be better off if more young people would get involved.

But the people who wrote Myers with threats didn't just commit a classless and indecent act -- they committed a criminal act. Here in Texas it is called "Making a Terroristic Threat" and it can result in some jail time for the offender. And I'll bet that an adult making these kind of threats to an underage girl would enhance the seriousness of the crime. Personally I wish they would locate at least some of these idiots and make an example of them.

Democracy is a messy system and can result in some heated feelings and words. But when those words rise to the level of outright threats then a line has been crossed. It graduates from a political argument to a crime. Can't we disagree with each other without resorting to criminal behavior?

Threatening to rape a 16 year old because she challenged your Prophet. Imagine if this had happened to someone who criticized a Democrat - it would be all over the news.

Frau Bachmann is also a dutiful wife, listening to her hubby, her chief strategist, in all things hateful.

Oh dear ... someone's really so unfortunate as to have to ask that?

Back on topic ...
If Bachmann happens to end up on the ticket for #1 IDIOT ... she will get my vote.

Oh, you were referring to the Republican presidential ticket?
Ummmmmmm let me think about that ... NO!

Michele Bachmann Quotes


. ''(Gay marriage) is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, thirty years. I am not understating that.''



2. “During the last 100 days we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed … The government spent its wad by April 26.”



3. ''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?''



4. ''I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back.”



5. ''Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.''


6. “But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.”



7. ''Does that mean that someone's 13-year-old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back and go home on the school bus? That night, mom and dad are never the wiser.''



8. ''Not all cultures are equal.''



9. ''[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.''



10. ''A woman (Terri Schiavo) was healthy. There was brain damage, there was no question. But from a health point of view, she was not terminally ill.''

Libya, Egypt, Yemen..oops!! Obama beat her to those..
Bachmann will get destroyed by the media..she is not ugly, she is not a minority, she is not a lesbian if she were one of these she may have a chance of being treated at least halfway decent by the Liberal media


First off war has not been declared in Libya,Egypt, or Yemen.After reading Bachmanns asinine comments the "liberal media" just reports what Bachmann utters.

But we understand anyone who does not agree with your ideology is wrong.Personally if Romney wins his party's nomination I would consider voting for him.

As far as voting for her she seems intelligent, articulate and likeable...the same qualities that were touted by those who advocated voting for Obama even though he had little experience.
OMG ... someone is daring to compare Bachmann on the same level intellectually as President Obama? That has to be a joke ... right?


Surely you jest that Bachmann could come even close to having the intelligence of President Obama.

In what way is she articulate?

Have you ever met Michelle Bachmann? How would you know if she is likeable?

And by the way, what type of experience does Bachmann have that could make her a viable candidate to run this country?
