Here is a rather low-budget rip of “war correspondent” Michele Bachmann crying with Sean Hannity over how everyone makes fun of her for raising issues that literally do not exist. The actual elected Congressional legislator has judiciously spent her time introducing a constitutional amendment “to prohibit the President from entering into a treaty or other international agreement that would provide for the United States to adopt as legal tender in the United States a currency issued by an entity other than the United States,” because she thinks the United States is trying to replace the dollar. Again: she thinks the United States is trying to replace the dollar, as its currency.

Now while we could be *fucked* currency-wise, it is not because Timothy Geithner is trying to replace the United States dollar as the United States currency. Our friends from China — or as Hannity prefers, “Communist China of all places,” because how dare we even talk to those Red Commies, who have literally paid for America over the last 15 years — and other places have been considering replacing the dollar as the sole world reserve currency, because we have a Treasury bubble (hooray! ugh) and will likely try to inflate away our public debt by printing dollars. Again, DOLLARS. No CHINA MUNNY over here!

Here is another terrible thing she said:

Bachmann: Do we get into an inner tube and float 90 miles to some free country? There is no free country for us to repair to. That’s why it’s up to us now. The founders gave everything they had to give us this freedom. Now it’s up to us to give everything we can to make sure that our kids are free, too. It’s that serious.

She’s being SUPER SERIOUS YOU GUYS. (What is this about an inner tube?) WE CANNOT SIMPLY INNER TUBE TO CATALINA ISLAND.

    It’s as serious as shoving one’s tongue down W the Blunder Preznit’s throat.

    Hey, Michelle. If you’re serious about floating down to Catalina in an inner tube may I suggest the following?
    1) Coat yourself liberally in chum
    2) Make like a Seal going “Arf! Arf! Arf!” and balance a ball on your nose
    3) Ignore all that talk about the waters around Catalina being a White Shark feeding ground.

    Ok, just for the sake of entertainment, let me ask for a second this one question; why not ratify this amendment? Considering, the ability to print money is the only thing keeping this country afloat at the moment – it seems self-evident that the country would collapse into oblivion if we discarded the dollar, if that were even possible.

    Let’s have a big parade, sign the amendment with a goose-quill pen and gold ink, thank her for her services, throw some confetti, and make a big cheer! Since she apparently has no sense of irony at all, we should award her the Green Tiara of Congressional Freedom, make March 30nd official American Currency Independence day, a day where we all use dollars to buy things. Elton John could write a stirring tribute, to the tune of Levon. Burger King could name a sandwich after her (extra cheese, extra lettuce). I want to watch that moment when it dawns on her that she’s the last person in America to be in on the joke – that the rest of us were all intending to keep using the dollar anyway.

    Did you know that at the end of the clip–I assume many could not stand the pain and had to turn it off before this point–Hannity actually replays the travesty of her questioning Geithner and Bernanke on the Constitutionality of their actions? Then, they attempt to spin it like Geithner is the crazy one, because he does not grasp that in following the orders of That One, his Boss, he is also trampling upon the Constitution. He must be called to account for this.

    In Bachmann’s world, it’s not that the Congress granted him authority to act in a certain way, and that he must act on behalf of the Executive to carry this out. Rather, it’s that Geithner must rise up as a rebel against both Congress and the President and refuse to lay out their horrible TARPS and such. That’s what the Constitution demands of him!

    A few things:

    Bachmann is from the Sixth district, which is the a pretty fucked up district to begin with. We’d gladly get rid of that district if we could.

    Bachmann only won because 10% of the people didn’t know that Tinklenberg had the Independence Party endorsement and the DFL endorsement and voted for some schlub who paid a couple hundred bucks to get on the ballot and have himself listed as Independence Party because they weren’t gonna vote for the DFL or the GOP.

    I’m sort of glad that Bachmann is safely in Washington. The last thing we need right now is a crazy unemployed person roaming the streets babbling nonsense. Although, should she ever lose her job, I will support her panhanding with my stash of Canadian coins I have been hoarding for a hilarious use TBD.

    But really, I hate that woman and I wish she’d associate herself with Wisconsin instead.

    Why is her spiel surprising to anyone? She’s using code words familiar to her fans, she specifically said she’s preventing the “one world” currency, associated with the “one world government”, you know, the antichrist one, that clearly Obama is; this is straight out of Hal Lindsy.
    To her supporters, its very clear that the literal forces of darkness (Obama) could only have won against the true forces of light (Palin) because this is it, the big one, the one-world government is on its way. And if you don’t know that, well, you’re in big trouble soon when the rapture happens….

    (Quote from Time: “Conservative Christian author Hal Lindsey declared in an essay on WorldNetDaily, “Obama is correct in saying that the world is ready for someone like him — a messiah-like figure, charismatic and glib … The Bible calls that leader the Antichrist. And it seems apparent that the world is now ready to make his acquaintance.”” )

    [re=277044]Custerwolf[/re]: I’d guess more like she’s cruising on some sort of mixture of crystal meth and PCP

    [re=276820]K. Signal Eingang[/re]: Nice try, but you’d need a couple of Keith Ellisons, a few Claiborne Pells, a Daniel Patrick Moynihan, AND a Barney Frank to make up for this level of insanity.

    Then again, most of us can sympathize. I’m pretty sure my home state is now represented by a Palin-style Know-Nothing, a yokel-cum-corrupt farmer/politician and a boll weevil. And I think the boll weevil might be a Democrat.

  • Darkness

    Stunning. She doesn’t know what a f*cking reserve currency is. Or she doesn’t care and intends to foment more mental violence from her mentally unstable supporters.

    I guess I choose B. It’s easier to cope with.

    Here is a site that sounds like its her talking points bulletin, its quite fascinating as a guide to what goes on in the minds of people like her:

    One World Currency
    The forces today that unite the greed of the moneychangers with the power play of elitists that see an opportunity to grab more of America are taking us down a road that lovers of freedom will not like.

    And here is what’s behind this one world currency move:

    http://www.jeremiahproject.com/newworldorder/

    The New World Order
    As the 20th-century idols of atheism, humanism and communism are falling worldwide a spiritual vacuum is left that must be filled. In the resulting contest for the souls and minds of Americans in this new world order, the Church faces formidable opponents in godless liberal collectivists, neo-conservative fascists, globalists, New Age religion, Islam and Satanism. (Next to this paragraph is a big picture of Obama)

  • Custerwolf

    [re=277053]Hooray For Anything[/re]: I suppose you’re right. Electro-shock would have played dangerously with the perfectly synchronized synaptic symphony of crazy that she keeps so delicately balanced.

    [re=276704]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: If the Dems can get a candidate to run against her in 2010 whose name doesn’t remind one of a peeing elven creature, she’s toast.

  • President Beeblebrox

    [re=277067]maven[/re]: So which is Barry: a godless liberal collectivist, a neo-conservative fascist, a globalist, a New Ager, a Mussulman, or a Satanist?

    Or all of the above?

  • maven

    [re=277084]President Beeblebrox[/re]:

    Apparently it doesn’t matter. What matters is that through all of these traits, he is clearly the Antichrist and hell bent on establishing the One World Government, which is being bravely fought by those on to his secret, such as Bachmann, and apparently Hannity, who seems to get the references,and wasn’t he sort of insinuating, by showing Geithner’s response, that he’s one of Satan’s minions bent on overthrowing the Constitution? If you watch the video again with all these code words in your mind, you’ll see exactly where these two are coming from. And, of course, adding in those early clips about Alaska being one of the sacred sites that will be spared during the Rapture (which is why Palin had to have her baby there and not on the soiled soil of the continental USA), it all comes together. Especially if you are on Meth.

    Someone please tell me what the f*ck this chick is on? Not even crystal meth and PCP mess you up this bad…

    [re=277084]President Beeblebrox[/re]: He’s all of the above, which is kind of the fun of the Republican reaction to Obama- they all think he’s evil but can’t decide in which way he’s evil. Which, I guess, makes him even more evil.

  • Custerwolf

    Where is Minnesota? Well, when you’re heading north on the interstate and you come to the evolutionary fork in the road, you just follow the sign on the right that says, “Dead End.”

  • Hooray For Anything

    [re=277084]President Beeblebrox[/re]: He’s all of the above, some mutant form of both socialism and facism. He’s a facialist.

  • Guppy06

    Maybe she should go back to St. Paul and convince them to exercise their constitutional right to mint gold and silver coins as currency. Imagine the Paultard starbursts!

  • DoctorCulturae

    Yes Sean, she is being besmirched, besmeared, and b’attacked because she is a b’wingnut.

  • Custerwolf

    I’d like to knock that besmirch right off her face.
    Although I do have some regard for her after finding out that one of her favorite pastimes is adopting children. I came across this picture of one of her little darlings and it really attests to her merit as a wonderful parent:

    I found it so cool watching Geithner’s facial reactions to her line of questioning and Hannity saying that Geithner doesn’t understand her question. But she was right. The Constitution does’t have any provisions for saving the economy after some rich people screwed it up. It also doesn’t mention saving companies that make vehicles propelled by internal combustion engines. But it does mention the right to bear arms. So, unless a problem can be solved with a gun, it must be left alone.

    We should change the name of the dollar to the smabolean just to make Bachmann lose her shit.
