Michele Bachmann Looks Like a Crazy Woman

Michelle Bachman’s on the cover of Newsweek magazine and apparently not very happy with her photo because it makes her look like a crazy woman. Well, guess what? She is a crazy woman. How would a crazy woman disguise that without spending her life wearing very dark, big sunglasses? In fact, in most of the photos I see of her, she looks completely batshit crazy. These photos, including the Newsweek haven’t been altered to make her look crazy. That’s the way she looks.

Of course, it’s not just the way she looks … that wild eyed, out of control crazy look in her eyes. It’s also what she says and what she does that makes her seem as nutty as a fruitcake.

For example, she apparently is under the impression that the recent Tea Party Downgrade” to the United State’s credit rating was due to us not defaulting on our debt.

“For the last two weeks, I led the fight against raising the debt limit,” Bachmann said. Increasing the limit “pushed the rating agency over the edge.” It was a “$2.4 trillion blank check that caused the downgrade.”

How crazy is that? But it’s not the only crazy thing she’s said and done. She’s a racist and homophobic. She’s really bad at American history (actually, dumb as a brick is closer to the truth). She’s married to a man who professes to cure people of homosexuality.

Here’s some of the craziest quotes from Michele “Batshit Crazy” Bachmann

1. “I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president, April 28, 2009

2. “There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” -Rep. Michele Bachmann, Oct. 2006

3. “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.” -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009

4. “Well 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 2011)

6. “Take this into consideration. If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the Census Bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps. I’m not saying that that’s what the Administration is planning to do, but I am saying that private personal information that was given to the Census Bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up, in a violation of their constitutional rights, and put the Japanese in internment camps.” -Rep. Michele Bachmann, June 2009

Michele Bachmann (R-MN), a pro-lifer who completely missed the irony of using the same slogan as the pro-choice movement in arguing against health care reform

10. “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.” -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on health care reform’s potential to dupe parents, October 2009

11. ”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

13. ”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.”
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, on expanding the AmeriCorps program. Ironically, her son, Harrison, joined Teach for America, which is a member of the AmeriCorps program. (Aug. 2009)

14. ”But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. … I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly — men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country.”
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, speaking at an Iowan’s for Tax Relief event, Jan. 23, 2011 (The Founding Fathers did not work to end slavery, and John Quincy Adams was not one of the Founding Fathers)

15. ”Death panels are the bureaucracies that President Obama is establishing where bureaucrats will make the decision on who gets health care and how much.”
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, Newsmax interview, Sept. 10, 2009

16. ”I’m very concerned about the international moves they’re making, particularly … moving the United States off the dollar and onto a global currency, like Russia and China are calling for.”

What is just too funny about it all is that this woman is considered Presidential material by the Tea Party. It just confirms the fact that the Tea Party are basically a bunch of dim-witted Koch Brothers puppets. Intellectuals need not apply.
