GOP Abandoning Loony Michele Bachmann

  crazy lady

Duckface!
Nutty baby farmer and commie hunter Michele Bachmann just blabbed her way out of GOP ad buys in Minnesota!

Bachmann went on Hardball last week and called everybody a liberal Marxist black anti-American, which for some reason was shocking. (This is how she talks every day.) But whatever the reason Friday’s tirade got noticed, the end result was a million dollars in campaign contributions for her Democratic opponent, Elvish Whistlepeep, who will probably win her House seat now, ha ha, although nobody knows for sure because it is apparently very difficult to do a quick poll in Minnesota’s 6th District.

Anyway, according to Sam Stein at the Huffington Post, the National Republican Congressional Committee has yanked its media buying in Michelle’s district! They’ve washed their hands of Batshit Bachmann!

Two sources aware of ad buys in Minnesota say that the National Republican Congressional Committee is pulling its media purchases from Bachmann’s race. If true, it is a remarkable fall for a congresswoman who, until recently, seemed relatively safe in her predominantly conservative district. The race had become closer in recent days — the NRCC had transferred funds from Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-03) to Bachmann a little over a week ago.

Oh, and we took this picture at the Republican convention last month, in St. Paul, and have been waiting for the Perfect Time to use it on Wonkette.

    All that’s missing from the pic is the crocheted hat and it’s Mary Tyler Moore after a weeklong meth binge.

    Gov Sarah wins the official wingnut darling pageant!!! They’ll probably put out a calendar—12 months of Sarah!!

    [re=143578]Min[/re]: I think we can all agree when I say “Elen sila lumenn omentielvo, Whistlepeep.”

    Palin. Bachmann. The weird long-necked McCain Real Virginia lady.
    This election has really confirmed my homosexuality.

  5. Truculent

    Damn elitist media filters and lefties took her comments out of context and totally misunderstood her, thanks to that awful Hairball man. Now Ellie Weewee is going to be in Congress and it’s JUST NOT FAIR!

  6. Mista Eko

    In this pic she looks like some horrible doppelganger of Kate from LOST.

    SHE HAS TO GO BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She’s making the face of a woman trying to coax an orgasm out of her scared and bored spouse.

    Would be great if Pee Wee Herman could do the definitive interview with Sarah Palin. Can we make that happen?

    She will lose and be given the parting gift, a tshirt that reads “Jesus Is My Constituent.”

  12. BillyClubb

    Whoa, the Republican party has something against McCarthy-like techniques in general and ‘Batshit Bachmann’ in particular? It’s a new world.

  13. Dave J.

    She’s preparing for her next career: answering the question “is this stuff really low-fat?” at the frogurt stand at the St. Cloud Mall.

  14. John McClain

    A disgraced Bachmann will go back to “Working for the Weakened” and grudgingly rejoin the ever-welcoming Turner Overdrive.

    [re=143589]Uncle Al[/re]: I took five or six shots, because Sara & I were mentioning how good she looked, but every shot showed the Crazy instead of the Pretty.
    [re=143597]Datsun510[/re]: Exactly. A half-dozen shots, and they were all scary.

  16. CrunchyKnee

    [re=143603]magic titty[/re]: Fixed it.

    She’s making the face of a woman trying to coax an orgasm out of her scared and bored vagina.

    Spencer: You know, if you just crop the right 1/4 of the picture of McCain in front of the MAVERICK boys, it just says ICK….

  18. StrangelyBrown

    This is an outrage. First we lost our Kitty Harris, now Michelle Bachmann. Sarah Palin already has her ice floe picked out. Don’t you people realize that after this election, there’s a good chance we won’t have any batshit-crazy-for-Jesus ladies left in positions of power? America’s greatest natural resource — squandered and lost. For shame.

    What on earth will we have to snark about then? Do we just close up the Wonkette? Or will we be reduced to meaningful policy debates over President Barry’s tax plan, like the Economist with dick jokes?

    A terrifying future indeed. But at least we still have that race war to look forward to…

  19. MISTAHCOUGHDROP

    Yo, folks. You should know there are HIDDEN MESSAGES embedded in the photos Wonkette is posting. Take the LIFE magazine cover w/Tina Fey and McWalnuts from 2004. Run your cursor over the photo and you’ll see it pop up. No kidding. And Hopey, just below, with holes in his soles… another HIDDEN MESSAGE. Now either Wonkette is AWARE of this and encouraging such mischief or the webmeister is having some fun. It has been noted here by MISTAHCOUGHDROP.

  20. Toomush Infermashun

    Serolf: I think they just dumped her because she wasn’t into little boys… just guessing… wait, that would be cool… going around again… someone stop me….

  21. MISTAHCOUGHDROP

    P.S. Madame Batcrap, above, offers a HIDDEN MESSAGE of “DUCK FACE.” Upper right hand corner. Fish about and then click.

    Can you imagine being El Tinklenberg’s finance manager or whatever starting on Friday?

    You call up the candidate…

    “Yeah, um, El, we’ve just received $100,000 from 600 out-of-state donors in the last 45 minutes.”

  23. kth

    John Cole came up with “Bachmann Traitor Overdrive” to describe the loony congresswoman’s Hardball appearance. I knew there was a BTO pun in there, but couldn’t come up with it myself; best leave the heavy lifting to the pros, I guess.

  24. Scarab

    So the GOP’s plan of spreading their agenda using attractive females isn’t working either?

    It’s like that time on Melrose Place that Heather Locklear’s character ‘disguised’ herself by dying her hair, so she could break in to someone’s apartment and steal… Yeah, all right, ‘crazy’ will do.

    [re=143657]Scarab[/re]: I’d actually prefer the smug prickbags…well….

    I can’t wait until this election is over and so I can never turn to Fox News again (I have to keep track of the mendacity).

  29. MISTAHCOUGHDROP

    I wouldn’t kid you guys. Imagine all the HIDDEN MESSAGES we’ve not seen! I think this is, well, Rovian!

  30. MISTAHCOUGHDROP

    [re=143668]problemwithcaring[/re]: That would be good, but what sort of HIDDEN MESSAGE will Wonkette unleash on such a photo?

    By the way, listening to Tom Sullivan on Faux News Radio right now, an interview with Rick Davis revealed that, according to Davis ” Palin pulls in as many people to her rallies as Obama does.” Tom went, “Uh huh. Always a pleasure having you on Rick Davis.”

    I e mailed Tom Sullvan the photo of Hopey in St Louis last week. I encourage you to do the same: tomsullivanradio@foxnews.com

    Don’t everyone get your hopes up. She’s not going anywhere. I have an uncle in her district and they are all rightwing nutcases. They’re probably LOVING what she said, because it’s TRUE!

  34. NoWireHangers

    [re=143676]MISTAHCOUGHDROP[/re]: Okay. Listen. Here’s the thing. The “hidden messages” of which you speak are called “Alternate Text”. It is simple. If you’re using a PC just right click the picture. Now click “properties”. You will see this. Wonkette has been doing this for years. On those rare occasions when they mistakenly post a picture of Larry Craig without a rollover pop-up of “wide stance” commenters will cry things like, “bring back alt text”. This is a long and time-honored Wonkette tradition. Welcome to Wonkette. Now you get it. I hope they haven’t banned you already.

    Don’t speak it away
    Don’t look at it like it’s forever
    Between you and me
    I could honestly say
    That things can only get dumber

    And while on TV
    Bring out the crazee inside
    And it won’t be long
    Before you’re dumped and run
    To the place for big losers
    Where careers die

    And I guess that’s why
    They call her to lose
    Time on your hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Whining like children
    Lying like losers
    Yelling loud blunders ’bout the brothers
    And I guess that’s why
    They call her to lose

    The GOP’s pulling of its ads is nothing personal, Michele. Sarah’s running low on Pond’s.

    I will be so sad if Bachmann goes away. Well, not sad per se, but saddish. And by ‘saddish’, I mean, really really fucking happy.

  50. druranium

    Dudes really want to fuck Bachman and Palin? There is an insect called a tarantula hawk that paralyzes the giant spider, lays an egg in it, then the spawn sucks out the insides of the spider. I think these vacuous republican women are the human form of tarantula hawk. Please steer clear if you value your insides:
    “Once the egg hatches, the tiny grub, initially connected to the spider by the tip of its tail, bends over, attaches its head and begins to suck. It continues sucking until its final moult. It then rips open the spider’s abdomen, thrusts its head and part of the thorax inside, and “feeds ravenously,” as one entomologist described it. As one might hope, even for a spider, the tarantula at this point is finally dead.”

    Did she turn into Priscilla Presley???

    As they say in Dallas, the higher the hair the closer to God.

  54. LarryFeltonJ

    I do so hate to go all serious underneath the second funniest photo I’ve seen on this site (the first was also Ms. Bachmann … the one that looked like she had removable eyes) but I think it’s time to do quiet celebration over the fact that when these wingnuts launch one of these public sputtering rants it’s now backfiring on them. Ten years ago it was working for them, and they don’t seem to be able to shift gears. Probably because they’re crazy. As soon as I watched the video clip of her raving lunacy on Hardball I went to ActBlue and contributed to our Elfin friend. Imagine my astonishment when I found that quite a few others had the same knee-jerk Liberal reaction.

    I see a future fucking Doctor Who two-parter out of this debacle. David Tennant travels to an alternate Earth where Palin and Bachman are christofascist rulers of a global empire. They both wear the retro crimson leather Thriller shit and have KJV bibles as their shoulder boards. To defeat them he must engage in a threesome, err, foursome, along with a semi-corporeal Rose Tyler decked out in SS regalia. This is too much for the good doctor and he fails in his performance, dying, and then regenerating into the eleventh doctor, Pat Buchanan. The show will then take on a more fascist tone and everything British about it will be swept away.

  59. TeddyS

    Bachmann the Crazy Queen of MN-6 is close to doing the impossible: losing a solid GOP congressional district to someone named Erlberm Hincklehorner or whatever. I sent money to Erlmerg Tinkerbell, but it would not really be a bad thing to keep this death camp woman guard around for another two years, just to provide us with some laughs. Pelosi can assign her a new office down behind the furnace.

  60. robanybody

    You know how you’re at a cafe or somewhere and this woman walks in and she looks, well, yummy, she’s got that fetching curve to her lips that suggests mischief of the best kind, and there’s that lithe, lean body, “pneumatic” as my grandpa would say when we went out for penny candies without grandma, and you want to sidle up to her (grandpa’s words) and make idle conversation, hoping that just maybe you’ll hit the Love Lotto and she’ll get that forbidden glint in her eyes…

    …and then she opens her mouth and it’s like an Arctic blast of skin-peeling pain, the shrill cackling of a sewer witch, and your teeth start to itch and you get the jimmylegs and your bladder swells and you have to talk louder to your friend, like fingers to the ears and LA LA LA, LA LA LA, to drown out the nails-on-chalkboard misery, and you can’t even look at your bud because you’re both humiliated to be in the same room with her and ashamed this she-troll could ever have been an object of your desire, however autonomic and fleeting?

    It’s like that.

  61. druranium

    [re=144061]robanybody[/re]: Thanks for your honesty. And for not capping it off with “I’d still hit it”.

  62. robanybody

    [re=144080]druranium[/re]: My restraint was due in large part to your mini-treatise on the tarantula hawk, for which I thank YOU. In fact, I think your write-up should be mandatory reading at those pre-nuptial counseling sessions the fundie churches do. Could help reduce the number of unwanted GOP nutwad babies.
