  • SHE REALLY REALLY WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT: [We’re out of absurd descriptions for her] Michele Bachmann unintentionally revealed yesterday, while yelling about Democrats, that she thinks about running for president 24/7: “They want to make sure no women, no woman becomes president before a Democrat woman and so they’re doing everything they can to, I think, sabotage women like Sarah Palin, perhaps women like myself, or similarly situated women, to make sure that we don’t have a prominent national voice.” Hey, Michele, GOD WILL DECIDE which lady gets to be lady-president first, so stop bothering him and be patient okay? [TPM]

    I really want Sarah Palin to be the nominee, but Bachman will definately do the trick. Maybe we can reanimate Kitty Harris for VP?

    That’s right, if god wanted a girl person to be our president he would have given her a penis…and she would have made one of those popular intertube videos so we would all know it!

    It’s Democratic woman, you raving lunatic. Woman.

    re: “[We’re out of absurd descriptions for her]”

    How about: “Duck-billed crazysaurus”?

  • SwanSwanH

    Misongynists!! PUMAs, behold thy mother.

    On a serious note –and I’m guessing it was Limbaugh — but who was the originator of using “Democrat” as an adjective (e.g. Democrat Party, Democrat woman, &tc.) in lieu of the correct but evidently too democratic sounding “Democratic?”

  • Come here a minute


    Now that’s just crude. (You did mean “blog-material” as a synonym of semen, right?)

  • SayItWithWookies

    The Democrats are saboting Michele? I won’t believe that until she quits and starts ranting on Facebook.

  • american mutt

    Didn’t god already decide that women shouldn’t question men anyway?

  • Smoke Filled Roommate

    I guess God has a funky fashion sense, what with telling her to wear necklaces on her wrists and all. Or gasp— is that to cover up the making of a covenant?

  • Canmon (the Inadequate)

    It’s very interesting to me how white Republicans only seem to care about discrimination when they feel that they are the victims.

    Ugh. This shit is only funny provided that you did not grow up around the troglodytes who actually elected this woman, twice. I miss the days when my county was primarily famous for unusually high rates of inbreeding.

    New poll out: Bachmann trails Darryl Dawkins 46-43 for President of Lovetron.

  • Slow Fish

    Why isn’t she at the State Fair, like all other self-respecting Minnesota politicians? Even offical State Troll and Bridge Saboteur Carol Molnau has been seen slithering around.

    It’s probably just as well — if Bachmann’s Dark Energy collides with Al Franken, I’m afraid the space-time continuum will implode.

    Bachmann keep tying herself to Palin, not sure that’s a winning strategy.

  • Rodney Badger

    [re=403121]the problem child[/re]: One cannot forget that she is a birther: “Bezerk Bible Belching Birther Bachman?”

  • Whiskeybaby

    She’s right, you know. The lack of a prominent platform for right-wing lunatics like Bachmann, Beck, Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Coulter, Palin, Hannity etc is truly a tragic by-product of the liberal way we live today in America. IF ONLY THEY HAD A PLATFORM AND THEIR VOICES COULD BE HEARD!!

  • S.Luggo

    Fundamental flaws in Bachanella’s rant:

    1. The Dems want a woman president.

    2. Wolfinator Palin has actually something left to sabotage.

    3. The Demmos actually give a rat’s ass about Rep. Michele McCrazy (R-Bats Belfrey, Minn).

    Whether it be a televised debate, or a full-on whore squabble, I just can’t wait for her and Palin to butt heads in 2012.

    [re=403129]Slow Fish[/re]: Why show up at the state fair? Minnesota will never vote for her in a presidential race. She needs to go to state fairs in wingnut country where all of Al Franken’s fingers would have been bitten off as soon as he started speaking in complete sentences.

  • Larry McAwful

    [re=403101]SwanSwanH[/re]: Seriously, I’ve heard recordings of Joe McCarthy using “Democrat” as an adjective. That’s the earliest use of that jibe that I know of.

    McCarthy also railed against the “Civil Liberties Union,” refusing to call them the “American Civil Liberties Union.” He probably didn’t use the abbreviation because that would include America’s A, and no one would know what the hell the CLU is.

    It might have started earlier; I really don’t know. But it’s been around since at least the 1950s, when that famous drunk saw communists everywhere.

    I actually do know a woman in a similar situation as her, only she has to wear a helmet and be supervised 24 hours a day for her own protection.

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    You’d slash your wrists too if your husband was a big screaming queen who spent his waking hours “de-gaying” (i.e., felching) confused Minnesotan farmboys with his “practical insights, biblical principles, and humor.” Pity Michele, and fear her frustrated insanity.

    If either of them ever become the First Woman President, they will also become the Last Woman President! Should I learn Korean, Persian or Chinese first?

  • WadISay

    [re=403096]freakishlystrong[/re]: I kind of like the idea of taking the “ic” out of “Republican” in reprisal, –> Republan.

    [re=403101]SwanSwanH[/re]: For some reason, I thought it was a Tom Delay or Dick Armey idea.

  • Saragon

    [re=403143]user-of-owls[/re]: You know, I like “Serial Lunatic Fairy” myself. Also user-of-owls’ suggestion of “Allegedly sentient”.

    “Walking Botulinum Toxin Chemical Weapons Cache”

  • Larry McAwful

    Until the Republicans cease to rely on voters who believe the Bible says that women shouldn’t be in charge of anything, she’s staying in the House, if she’s lucky. I’ve heard these loons say that the Bible permits women to serve in legislatures, but prevents them from holding executive positions. Nutball Christians in places like Mississippi and Utah would stay home in droves rather than elect a woman to the White House.

    Bachmann could be elected president if only we’d had the foresight to let the Confederacy go when they wanted to. And if she weren’t batshit crazy. Apart from those two small obsticles, she’d be a shoo-in.

    Michele “Big Naturals” Bachmann?

  • BlueStateLibtard

    But wouldn’t it be awesome to see her debating Obama in 2012 in three debates?!? I say we encourage her. Imagine all the screen shots of her rolling her eyes back like a shark, and threatening to slit her wrists and starve herself, and speaking in tongues. It would be hard on Hopey, yeah, like trying to speak rationally with a drunken psychotic aunt, but he could handle it.

  • Darkness

    [re=403111]DeLand DeLakes[/re]: Unrelated? I think not.

  • SparkleKitty

    I think the old biblical term, “publican” would fit the GOP better. Especially since the meaning evolved in (I think) the 19th century …and was a descriptive term for what we now call “pimp”.

  • zhubajie

    If she were a REAL conservative, she wouldn’t want a woman in office, would she?
