No one exudes a mixture of dumb and crazy quite like Michele Bachmann
Michele Bachmann will not be seeking re-election in 2014, praise her lord. Bachmann, a Tea Party forerunner, has been under Congressional investigation for the misuse of funds during her failed presidential bid last year, but she insisted it’s not related to her decision.
Bachmann is a Tea Party darling whose extremist conservative views are on par with Steve King, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. The main thing that separated Bachmann from the rest of the Tea Bagger herd would have to be her unabashed stupidity.
During her seven years as a Congresswoman from Minnesota, Bachman has said some pretty stupid things:
“There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.”
“But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.”
“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.”
She confused Actor John Wayne for serial killer John Wayne Gacy, she said there isn’t one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas. The list goes on and on.
Bachmann called on the American media to investigate ‘anti-American’ politicians, Democratic politicians in particular. Bachmann told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews “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?”
During a presidential debate on national security last year, Bachmann deceptively claimed that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had laid out plans to nuke the United States with a nuclear weapon… Good thing she wasn’t elected.
Michele’s opposition to the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare is well documented having voted to repeal it several dozen times. She called health care reform “the crown jewel of socialism” and once stated that if Obamacare was implemented “it would literally kill people”
Bachmann’s conspiracy theories are as “out there” as her policies. Last year she accused top State Department officials of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and back in 2009, she touted a federal plot to use the Census to round people up in to internment camps… Just a little loco.
Speaking of crazy, she also believes that god talks to her through the weather, being gay is personal enslavement and worst of all; she believes all forms of pornography should be banned (what a lunatic!)
Even though I consider myself the polar opposite of Mrs. Bachmann in every way, I’m going to miss her when she steps down. She has a way of bringing out all my emotions, sometimes at the same time. She makes me laugh, she fills me with fear and she makes me ever so angry.
I imagine when her term is over she’ll jump into the Fox News arena like so many conservative politicians before her. She’s entertaining to say the least and besides, it would be great for any Fox News personality she sits sown with; she has a knack for making everyone around her seem smarter.
