Fine, You Win, Bachmann - You're The Craziest

  • 34 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Hurricane Irene is God’s way of complaining about the budget deal in Congress. Or so says Republican Presidential contender Michele Bachmann. From The St. Petersburg Times:

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

God certainly uses hurricanes in mysterious ways, but times seem to be changing. It was just in 2006, after all, that Hurricane Katrina was unleashed on New Orleans because of the gay people. In 2011, hurricanes don’t come because of the gay folk, but because of the federal deficit. That’s progress, or something.

  1. The hurricane wasn’t as bad as predicted and the earthquake did very little damage at all. Does that mean that God is only kind of trying to get their attention? But wait, should we listen to the American people or God through natural disasters?

    Nevermind, I will stop trying to rationalize and just agree with the headline.

  2. Did you guys just make this up?  I have an almost impossible time getting my mind to let those comments inside.

    Assuming that God has taken a special interest in the current craziness of the American political dynamic and is interjecting Old Testament arbitrary punishments, can lightning strikes aimed at the weirdest outliers be far behind?

    Or does that consist of electioneering communication?

  3. did tthe ants I used to stomp on as a kid have a queen who told all her subjects that the leveling of their ant hill was due to some collective deficiency of the colony?  Maybe wasteful sugar consumption?  A failure to properly worship the great and almighty ant diety?

  4. Twenty-six precious lives could have been spared! Wake up, sheeple!

    (And obviously, Texas’s drought is Divine Retribution for my opponent being its governor.)

  5. But anyone with more brains than a piece of toast would have known what the reaction to such a joke coming from crazy eyes Bachmann would be.   Maybe the point was to get the media to attack so as to gin up more fervor in her favor among the crazy base, some of whom they see slipping off to Perry.

    If that’s the case, rather than pure Bachmann stupidity, the example of Sarah Palin should have told them that technique has a shelf life and they may have passed the expiration date.  After a while, all but the heart of the crazy core stops reacting like Pavlov’s dog to the call to rally round because the lame stream media is being mean again. Especially with a shiny new candidate in the picture.

  6. but because of the federal deficit.”

    What they’d really LIKE to say but mostly can’t get the words out, is that hurricanes and earthquakes come because Republicans aren’t in the White House — you know who is.

     

  7. Because Perry is as crazy as Bachmann.  The GOP establishment will take over this race in time for the FL primary.  Romney will win FL (maybe after winning in NH) and the crazies will have lost. Just like McCain’s path to victory in 2008.  

    1. Promising to protect SSI and Medicare, he won’t win the support of the Teabaggers (which he wasn’t going to win anyway).  The sad fact is that Perry now enjoys a double-digit lead against Romney, his most formidable opponent.

            1. I’m slowly processing images from the trip; I’ll try to remember to post a linky in an open thread when I get them all done.  (If you’re an FB friend, you don’t have to wait – you get to experience the trickle-down effect of my photo processing…)

              PS – no, I didn’t kiss the Blarney Stone.  In the battle between having time to take photos and kissing a hunk of rock while laying on your back half-off the edge of the castle, photography wins every time.

  8. …hurricane Irene & the earthquake was Mother Nature’s way of creating jobs since Congree can’t get their shit together and do it themselves.

    Now there is need for clean-up crews, road construction, and building repairs.

    1. is pass a law requiring “job creators” to hire Americans who can write in American to produce their spam. I’m just sick that all the spamming jobs are going overseas.

      It’s “win-win.” Americans get jobs and we get better spam.

      1. and she’s pulling in Fox $s and SarahPac donors.

        Spam works on the illiterate, uneducated, & simple-minded (pretty much TeaBaggers defined) otherwise $arah could afford her Arizona McMansion, the bus tour and her Alaskan land holdings.  

  9. It has to be from hearing his name used to blame/praise natural disasters as a politicians poor excuse for grabbing a headline. (Same can be said for idiot talking heads on TV, I suppose.)

  10. NY was spared obviously because of passing a marriage equality law and SC was clobbered because they think so highly of Bachmann and Jimmy Dick Perry.
