Meh, who wants to watch this whole thing? But it’s worth looking at the beginning to see her booed by town hall attendees for making a joke about Tiger Woods loaning the president $300 trillion. “HEALTHCARE, THIS IS A HEALTHCARE FORUM,” they shout, which is just a deeply unserious thing to yell in a public forum when your congresswoman is trying to get out a joke. Good times start around the 2:15 mark. [YouTube/Dusty Trice]

    “Aren’t you losers supposed to be fasting?”

  • Marmel
  • Suds McKenzie

    Needs more Yelling.

  • Terry

    Wait, I finally understand the fasting thing. She’s hoping that if all her constituents fast long enough, they’ll be too weak to holler at town hall meetings or to actually keep track of what she’s saying and doing.

  • Cape Clod

    No flash player at work. Will have to spend the whole day imagining how bad Bachmann’s timing was.

  • Lefty Lucy

    She forgot to thank Jesus. And the troops. And her gynecologist. Also.

  • the problem child

    If you freeze the video at random points, 9/10 times you can see the craziness shining right through.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Reminds me of the Monty Python’s Holy Grail when everyone starts yelling “GET ON WITH IT!”

  • Mr Blifil

    Didn’t Conan O’Brien run with that joke the other day? PLAGIARMALISM.

  • Toy Needle

    Why do you think they call it dope?

  • Captain Justice

    I wonder how long she was ready to ramble on about… I already forgot, guess I’m blocking… before the shouty.

  • karen

    Y’know, she kinda sounds like Sarah, sorta, also, dontcha know?

    Glad those people were forcing that cow to get on with it, jeez. She couldnt possibly have just started talking about healthcare, no, she had to be a cuntx5 and HARHARHAROBAMAWOODSMONEYHAHA

  • Lil’ Kim Jong-Il

    I think that rambling intro is meant to get everyone on their knees and start praying — to her, to STFU (plz)

  • freakishlystrong

    Again, why oh why, Republics, do you only care about the terrifying deficits when they are in charge?

  • the problem child

    [re=397107]the problem child[/re]: 1/10 of the time she is blinking.

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=397098]Marmel[/re]: Oh look, a blog whore disguised as a concerned commenter. If only it knew how to embed links.

    Why would Michele joke about borrowing $$ from a cablinasian? That’s not very white of her.

  • Holy Cow!!

    She doesn’t look like she’s been fasting to me. What a slacker!

  • binarian

    I couldn’t make myself sit through this whole thing. Can someone let me know at what point she starts foaming at the mouth and twitching? TIA.

  • DoktorZoom

    I liked how Bachman kept giving reasons why the audience shouldn’t be there. I wonder how many found themselves wishing they had decided to go to the state fair instead.

  • Flanders

    She forgot to thank me. I feel left out.

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=397126]Holy Cow!![/re]: That’s because she’s been blowing all the queers her husband is turning not gay, with the power of baby Jesus. It’s part of their therapy. So technically she’s still fasting, but the protein shakes are keeping the weight on.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Oh, bravo the fellow who meets her comparison of how many moutains, skyscrapers, Ted Kennedy coffins, stacked up would be the equivalent of health care costs if measure in ones, yells, “and how about Girl Scout Cookies.”

  • Lefty Lucy

    She employs the most painful-to-watch technique in all of political theater: “Faux-siness.” Who are the people who hear her rush through these obviously rehearsed yet still awkward phrases and think “she parks! she goes to the fair! she talks to her husband! she’s just like us!”

  • WadISay

    Lighten up and get on with it, Michele. Them grandmas ain’t gonna kill themselves.

  • JooJoo Bee

    Jesus what a bitch. I’m sorry, she’s got me all snarked out.

  • finallyhappy

    [re=397098]Marmel[/re]: Sorry, but “innocent stupid” is hardly an excuse for an elected official above the level of someone serving on a town commission to determine where the new dog park goes. I agree Bachmann is much worse but I am holding elected officials accountable- and I do that at all levels.

  • Woodwards Friend

    She wants to change the way Washington runs health care? When did Washington start running health care? Michele Bachman = socialist!

  • GreatOldOnesParty

    I don’t get it.
    Is there some kind of dialect that wingnutty RILFs and XGILFs speak in?
    And what’s with the stuttering sign-language?

    And, as with every Bachmann post…

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Isn’t “being mean” a capital offense in Minnesota?

  • The Unfairman

    I heard a rumor that both Barack Obama and Tiger Woods are half black. Is THAT why Tiger is going to loan him the money?

    Good ol’ boys, indeed.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=397136]JooJoo Bee[/re]: Nao nao der, calm down eh? Nothin sayin she’s hurtin the discourse there, donchaknow.

  • GreatOldOnesParty

    and what’s with the “i-hold-ballz”
    hand motions at 4:50ish?

  • disgustedcitizen

    How the fuck did this woman get elected? She’s a babbling moron, (or moran, if you insist), I honestly thought that public speaking was a must for politicians. I’ve hear better high school speeches.

    [re=397121]freakishlystrong[/re]: How many Mount Everests have been spent in Iraq so far?

  • Grandpa Cornpants

    Let’s review, the governemnt “always under-estimates the cost of things”. But not things like the cost of breaking into a country, killing its leader and occupying it. And never mind about the human toll, that just comes with the territory.

  • WadISay

    [re=397150]disgustedcitizen[/re]: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you for taking time from your work to comment here. And thanks to your family.

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=397152]Guppy06[/re]: Let’s not forget those Bush tax cuts! Deficit? Meh.

  • Elm Hugger

    Well, if she looses her job, she can always get a job as a newscaster. I really enjoyed her update on the state fair, the weather and the no towing on the street. Guess there are no lincoln park pirates to worry about up there.

  • PrairiePossum

    That woman is so damn nutty she makes everyone else in DC look like geniuses. I’m beginning to see why they like having her around.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    I live in the district next to Bachmann’s and I have asked myself the same question many times. You must understand that the vast majority of the people in her district are the type that thinks a great vacation is parking the RV in Wal-Mart parking lots across the good old US of A.

  • widget09

    Her constituents are retarded, as they managed to vote her into office in the first place.

  • snideinplainsight

    Where is Elrood Tinkleberger and the Free Hobbit Militia?

  • snideinplainsight

    Hobbits deserve health care too. It a moral question. It has to do with basic hobbit dignity.

  • Grandpa Cornpants

    [re=397152]Guppy06[/re]: Faster and better.

  • yargisbargis

    And what would those trillions of sears towers translate to in nanoseconds? euros? yens? WE NEED MORE OF THESE FACTS ON HEALTHCARE!!!

  • Tundra Grifter

    She doesn’t know anyone who Congress who wants to maintain the status quo.

    Well, that certainly explains all those successful Republican health care reform bills that passed during the two administrations of President Bush. Like the one that made poor Terri Schiavo legally alive.

    Meanwhile, everyday we can hear Sheet “Hot Air” InSannity rant that we have the best health care in the world (we don’t); that most people like what they have (not true; and many folks who do like what they have are going to lose it if we don’t do something about it); and we shouldn’t change a think.

    Sorry to get so serious on Wonkette on a Friday morning. Maybe I can ask Sara for a tube sock…

  • bfstevie

    They left out the part where Bachmann says to the hecklers, “Hey, I don’t come to your job and knock the dick out of your mouth!”

    Or maybe she said it to someone at the Minneapolis airport, what with it being Minnesota and all.

    Try the veal. Also.

  • finallyhappy

    [re=397165]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Clarence Thomas?

  • trickyrick

    yea, well, the Republicans drive the USA into debt so we cant have teh health cares.

    fuck you crazy eyes.she is confused by numbers. god she is so boring and irrelevant.

    [re=397106]Lefty Lucy[/re]: you mean Jesus isn’t her gyno?

  • hoosiermama

    [re=397128]DoktorZoom[/re]: I would go to the county fair to see Bachmann win a blue ribbon at the livestock pavillion.

  • Min

    She has very shiney hair. That’s all I got.

  • Ducksworthy

    Dear Michele,

    There are thousands of us sincerely praying for you and praying that you will be institutionalized and sedated before you harm yourself or someone close to you.


  • Slow Fish

    There’s a good chance Minnesota will lose a U.S. representative after the next census, especially if people follow Bachmann’s directions and don’t fill out their census forms. I’m just hoping Bachmann’s district gets combined with John Kline’s, so we’ll only be stuck with one of them.

  • momus

    Random thoughts:

    -If she blinked more, you could mistake her for Nancy Pelosi.
    -She has an aide that was not home schooled and can at least multiplying by 1000 without difficulty. I’d ask her a trick question, like “If those were thousand dollar bills how high would the stacks be?”
    -I thought only Senators could filibuster?
    -The only cure for a deficit that size? Tax cuts!

  • vkladchik

    Two minutes of gratitude porn at the beginning is sick.

    Like she had anything to do with Favre…

  • Crazybroad

    I am left wondering who’s crazier: Michelle Bachmann or Orly Taitz? Or perhaps it’s the folks who voted (and then re-elected) Bachmann into the F***ING CONGRESS and gave her a national stage for her crazies?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I blame Minnesota winter brain freeze.

  • One Yield Regular

    Ah, but there’s NO ONE who doesn’t want health care reform? So good to hear that. Lay on us your vision of that reform, Our Lady of the 10,000 Lakes. And get past the praying and fasting to the details, please, a lot quicker than you got through all that thankiness.

    She makes me just wanna wait until she gets a serious head-cold, then mix Nair into her deep conditioner….

  • Rascalcat

    Could her attempts to ingratiate herself to her audience been more obvious or pitiful. I believe her strategy was to fill the time with her talking so she didn’t have to take questions.
    What a motor-mouth. I would have liked to hear some of the questions from those people tired of her prattling on. She is for sure, the missing Palin given up at birth.
