I find Michele Bachmann’s ignorance to be entertaining. Since she has no shot in hell of ever being elected President, rather than being afraid of her politically, I simply find her ridiculous. The woman is a whack job and I will her prove my point by sharing some of her most hilarious statements. By hilarious of course I mean crazy.
Bachmann once said, in terms of the “normalization” of being gay: “A very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”
In speaking about singer Melissa Etheridge: “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.” Interesting take for a woman who might be married to a gay man.
When Bachmann returned from a visit to Iraq, she said: “There’s a commonality with the Mall of America, in that it’s on that proportion. There’s marble everywhere. The other thing I remarked about was there is water everywhere.” Seriously, how can anyone take this woman seriously? Is it a joke that she is running for President?
One of my favorites is: “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.” I dare Bachmann to sit in a room for 20 minutes and breath in some fresh and fabulous carbon dioxide. If she is willing to do that, I will vote for her in the Presidential election.
The best one was this week when in an attempt to throw down some Yiddish, Bachmann mispronounced the word “chutzpah” by saying “choot spa”. Poor thing. If she was trying to score my Jewish vote she was wasting her time because she never had it, and never will. In addition to thinking she is crazy and unstable, I am now laughing at her.
With over a year to go until the election, it’s going to be a long road to the White House. The good news is the freak shows will keep us entertained while we listen to the real contenders. Will I be able to continue laughing and not get scared by the possibility of people this stupid running our country? I’m keeping the faith.
