Rep. Michele Bachmann and Her Demon Teeth Have Opinions About ‘Mexican Wage’

America's Congresslady.America’s favorite fictional reality show, A Crazy Lady Somehow Is the Congressperson From Minnesota’s 6th District, continues today with this important episode. It’s all about how “the poor” (Mexicans) say they want “minimum wage” when they probably actually want something more, probably in Spanish. Get your grandparents on the Skype and gather round, ducklings! It’s video time on the Internets!

    I personally hope Michele wins that election – just so Sara will be able to continue to make a living, if not a living wage. Also.

  2. Mr Blifil

    The lips the teeth the tip of the tongue…oh and watching that at the same time the Hornitos ad hovered above was not a good idea for my sobriety vows.

  3. Mad Brahms

    The “and Sara Benincasa” thing is a bit odd. It makes it sound like Sara actually has multiple personalities, one of which is Michele Bachmann.

    Also, “teethy”? The satire gets ever more absurd, and as I love absurdity, I approve. Are you just improvising using objects found in your apartment now, Sara? And why do they have death metal voices?

  4. V572625694

    Here’s hoping we have Sara around for a few more weeks until she’s called back to her “home planet.”

    [re=627243]Mr Blifil[/re]: I have get to find out how good of an instigator I am, and am beginning to wonder whether there are accurate testing mechanisms to assess this.

  6. bozofish

    Sorry, but Michele would never use the word “pejorative”… because it’s a Liberal word used liberally by Liberals.

  7. FMA

    [re=627248]bozofish[/re]: If you do use it, you should at least mispronounce it. Prejoradive or something like that. Out of respect. And to be like that Shakespeare dude I keep hearing about. Also.

  8. freakishlystrong

    You got the crazy eyes juuuusst right this time. I’m a little worried about you, “Sara Benincasa”.

  9. JMP

    [re=627248]bozofish[/re]: That an’ cause its’ two long, one a them intlectal leetist wurds.

  10. just pixels

    Thanks “Michele”! This really clears up a few things I’d been wondering about you.

    If you have time for a question….

    I don’t have a casting of my teeth because I don’t have dental insurance. Plus they kinda fell out from all the crack and meth I use, so who needs ‘em. I do have a plaster cast of a certain intimate body part. (I was drunk and he or she — can’t remember exactly — was so bossy about doing it.) Like you, my plaster body part tells me what to do, what to think, what to believe. That’s why I have no job or money, but I do have a lot of porn. Did you know you can make your own porn at a fraction of the price you’d pay in stores? WAIT, that’s not my question.

    My question is: What voices should I listen to?
    A) plaster cast of my privates
    B) a plaster cast of my gums
    C) you

    Thank you.

    NPR had Michelle Bachmann on this morning, talking about her Tea Party Caucus and whether the independent votes would go for that crazee rather than the more mainstream, what NPR called moderate Republicanism.

    I think the last moderate Republican was Everett Dirksen but whatever.

  12. SayItWithWookies

    It’s good to see that Rep. Bachmann finally achieved transference from her Ronald Reagan commemorative plate — though it’s unfortunate that her projection of her id landed on her teeth casting. Are teeth mentioned much in the Bible? I can’t think of a single passage offhand — though there is that bit about the canines of war.

  13. JMP

    [re=627268]chascates[/re]: Now, there’s plenty of moderate Republicans; why, the Senate’s got a whole three of them! All from the same region. So clearly they have a lot of power in the party.

  14. proudgrampa

    Sara, you are crazy!

    I love that in a woman, as long as it’s not Bachmann-batshit crazy.

    GO OWLS!

  15. hiphophitler

    Just an aside, but I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my fellow commenters on the fact that there have now been 25 or so comments on this piece and so far none of the horndogs on this site have yet mentioned Sara’s hooters. I think we’re really classing up the act here, gents. Manly slaps on the butt all round, and all that sort of thing.

  16. binarian

    [re=627268]chascates[/re]: Frankly, I was surprised to hear NPR talk to and about here. I suppose it’s their reportorial duty to cover all sides, even bat-shit crazy.

  17. Way Cool Larry

    Sara– you are cute as the dickens, except for the last part with the teeth which kind of freaked me out.

  18. chaste everywhere

    Do we need to start axing the G-man (or whatever) to fix Sara’s eyes?

    No work needed on her hooters, obviously. (Right, hiphothitler?)

    ps Sara, are you sure you aren’t SAURON Benincasa? (Caps added for traumatic emphaziz.)

  19. Potater

    I lost it at the “You pretty. Pretty. PREEEEETTY.”

    And re: This Is What I Do For A Living, I’m sure your parents are very proud, Sara. Just keep repeating it over and over.

  20. Neilist

    Needs more Loofa Munching.

    [Neilist: He NEVER gives up a theme.]

    If not Loofa Munching, how about some guns? Heavily armed teeth?

  21. Extemporanus

    Sara, if I could be so bold, a word of advice: Less teeth, more tongue.

    The video, however, was really, really good!

    Also, did ILM create that super awesome “Van de Graaf Capitol” graphic for you guys? I just may have to get it tattooed on the head of my penis — I’ll be sure to sext you a photo if I do.

    [re=627346]binarian[/re]: National Pentagon Radio got bought and sold years ago.

    “9-11 changed everything.”

  23. What Fresh Hell is This?

    Teh outstanding alum of Warren Wilson College!

    ‘Chelle’s crazy eyes are because she’s blind as a bat. On those rare occasions when she’s not on camera, she wears Coca Cola bottle glasses.

  24. whiterabid

    Sara, would you like to come over to my house and share a bath? You can keep your crown on.

  25. Sara Benincasa

    I would like to acknowledge the fact that one Ken Layne made the title cards. I just added the weird red paint and the weird storm effects. DID NO ONE NOTICE THE BARN-DOOR WIPES AT THE BEGINNING? These were a calculated tribute to the transitions in “Star Wars.” DAMMIT!

  26. Extemporanus

    [re=627852]Sara Benincasa[/re]: [re=627452]Ahem…[/re]

    “Also, did ILM create that super awesome “Van de Graaf Capitol” graphic for you guys?”

    You probably stopped reading after the first sentence, and if so, I don’t blame you one bit.

  27. Mr Blifil

    [re=627852]Sara Benincasa[/re]: That’s not red paint, it’s the Capitol Dome covered in the blood of martyrs from the race wars. Bonus points for random application of cheesy lightning effect as well.

  28. Sara Benincasa

    [re=627925]Mr Blifil[/re]: AHAHAH!

    “That’s not red paint, it’s the Capitol Dome covered in the blood of martyrs from the race wars.”

    CORRECT.

  29. scooterKPFT

    Sara, you have to freeze your eyebrows for that permanently surprised Bachmann look which is impossible for actual human beings so you have to staple photoshop on your forehead or something, I don’t know but praise jesus and god bless america and everything
