Michele Bachmann Worked For Jimmy Carter, Was Ruined By Gore Vidal

by Jack Stuef

Jimmy Carter blows it again.Michele Bachmann opened up to a gathering of Michigan Republicans on Tuesday about her shameful, Jimmy Carter-loving past. “I was a reasonable, fair-minded Democrat. And another secret you need to know: My husband and I met in college. We worked on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. It’s true, it’s true. This is like a 12-step meeting here today, you know that.” Say it isn’t so! What a disgusting secret! You have to kill like 50,000 Muslims to absolve a sin like that! (Check.) So what happened? “I was reading this snotty novel called ‘Burr,’ by Gore Vidal, and read how he mocked our Founding Fathers.” And then Alexander Hamilton sank his teeth into her, releasing founder venom that turned her into a super-dooper Constitution protector.

I didn’t realize until I went off to college one day — this is the honest to God truth — I was going off to college, and I was reading this snotty novel. It was written by Gore Vidal, and I was maybe like a junior in college, or — yeah, I think was maybe a junior in college. [...]

And as a reasonable, decent, fair-minded person who happened to be a Democrat, I thought, ‘You know what? What he’s writing about, this mocking of people that I revere, and the country that I love, and that I would lay my life down to defend — just like every one of you in this room would, and as many of you in this room have when you wore the uniform of this great country — I knew that that was not representative of my country.

And at that point I put the book down and I laughed. I was riding a train. I looked out the window and I said, ‘You know what? I think I must be a Republican. I don’t think I’m a Democrat.’

But then, somehow, she didn’t become merely a moderate Republican. Just because she thought Gore Vidal said something mean about some very dead guys, she became the most insane one of all.

So if we send her something a conservative wrote mocking the founding fathers, she will instantly become a communist Alan Grayson? Sounds entertaining.

Or maybe it will unsettle that brain of hers so much she goes and stabs Jimmy Carter whilst belting out an aria of insanity. So on second thought, maybe it’s a bad idea. [TPM]

Habitat for Hilarity!

Come here a minute December 30, 2010 at 3:36 pm

She also stopped wearing sweaters. That'll show em!

slithytoves December 30, 2010 at 3:37 pm

Amazingly, when I went to college, I became a Democrat. And then I got even more education and became a liberal, heaven forfend.

She must have gone to Oral Roberts.
University.

V572625694 December 30, 2010 at 3:42 pm

It's funny cuz it's true~

slithytoves December 30, 2010 at 3:51 pm

Man, I was joking, but now I get it. Don't buy fireworks for the death of religion yet, people; you don't need a majority, you only need commitment.

SheriffRoscoe December 30, 2010 at 4:02 pm

Up-fisted for the tilde tie-in.

angryclownspawn December 30, 2010 at 4:16 pm

OMFG! It all makes perfect sense now.

PresBeeblebrox December 31, 2010 at 8:43 am

Wait. LLM in tax law, former tax attorney for the US Treasury in US Tax Court, receives a quarter million a year in crop subsidies, probably got gubbmint munnies for her brood of foster children, not to mention her soshialist death panel gubbmint health insurance. Sounds like a good Republican to me.

slappypaddy December 30, 2010 at 3:51 pm

look closely at her words. she said she "was going off to college," she "was maybe like a junior in college," or zeroing in, she "was maybe a junior in college."

she does not say she "was actually at and enrolled in a college–any kind of college," nor does she say she "was actually a junior in college."

i submit, therefore, based on the careful and political slipperiness of her wording, coupled with a public record describable as "wingnutty," and underscored by the oft-times piercing, psychotic glare of her gaze, that the closest she ever got to a college was passing by one on a bus one day and daydreaming out the window how she, too, could be "like maybe a junior* in college."

*junior because she couldn't be a freshman (they are men and fresh, and she has never been either), she couldn't be a sophomore (she doesn't know what it means, can't spell it, and it sounds like both "soft" and "more," words which, particularly in conjunction, her inner child reviles), and she couldn't be a senior (they are old people), leaving her obviously a junior, as in "junior miss," which sounded vaguely enticing to her in those long-gone halcyon days.

V572625694 December 30, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Check the link in my post above. Michele's a "graduate" of a law "school." That's why she had to ask Geithner under what authority he ran the Federal Reserve.

Dr_pangloss December 30, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Jebus is still hanging around the school in his 60ft tall incarnation. Oral keeps telling Him "the check is in the mail". Another thing only a ORU alum knows about 60ft tall Jebus, He goes "commando".

user-of-owls December 30, 2010 at 3:38 pm

I can't quite tell what part of her dialog is the loopiest. Is it that she apparently started college as a junior? Or is it that she is speaking to a roomful of veterans' corpses that "have" laid down their lives for the constitution?

Come here a minute December 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm

It's very sad that she was riding a socialist train — why wasn't she driving an SUV that daddy bought for her? Damn liberal parenting, that's why!

x111e7thst December 30, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Are you sure she did not say she wanted to pull a train for some national socialists?

bumfug December 30, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Breathlessly waiting for the part where she "lays her life down…"

Buzz Feedback December 30, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Is that a weiner dog? Mutt of the Reich.

SecretMuslin December 30, 2010 at 6:30 pm

I think that weiner dog may have given her rabies. It would explain a lot.

SorosBot December 30, 2010 at 3:43 pm

So the mean gay liberal's mockery made her turn Republican and hate gay people while marrying one of them; that's typical Bachmann-style insane troll logic.

weejee December 30, 2010 at 3:44 pm

So Gore Vidal is the one who put the Burr under her saddle?

user-of-owls December 30, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Aaron't you glad he did?

ChuckieJesus December 30, 2010 at 5:31 pm

He's been putting burrs in saddles since that night with Colonel Gentleman and Wally Schirra.

genxr December 30, 2010 at 3:44 pm

What he’s writing about, this mocking of people that I revere, and the country that I love, and that I would lay my life down to defend — except instead I got a fifth deferment — just like every one of you in this room would, if you didn't have other priorities at the time, and as many of you in this room have when you wore the uniform of this great country in the Texas Air National Guard.

/fixed

V572625694 December 30, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Gore Vidal: is there anything you can't blame him for? Wish I could remember the exact passage in Burr when Davy Crockett says something like, "Well goddamn you all for a passel'a'Mexican cornholers!" I was already a LIEbrul by then, so found this mockery of an American holy man most entertaining!

freakishlywrong December 30, 2010 at 3:45 pm

Talk about Tardy for the Party.

Pithaughn December 30, 2010 at 3:45 pm

Maybe she became Republican by hot meat injection? Wink wink, nod nod, likes to sport around does she?

ttommyunger December 30, 2010 at 9:58 pm

Say no more, say no more.

Angry_Marmot December 31, 2010 at 12:46 am

Waterloo, Iowa? Say no more!

ttommyunger December 31, 2010 at 9:03 am

I don't get the reference, but I'm laughing maniacally so that you don't think I'm slow.

DonnyKerabotsos December 30, 2010 at 3:45 pm

How in fuck did she know that Gore Vidal was (is) a Democrat? And why did she assume that his 'snotty' book somehow was representative of all Democrats and the wider Democratic party?

And why am I attempting to apply logic to the harping of a midwestern loon?

genxr December 30, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I didn't know it was required reading. Being a Democrat is complicated! I'm going to throw out all my books and just be a Republican. They don't gotta read shit!

jim89048 December 30, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Note to Michele: That isn't snot.

ChessieNefercat December 30, 2010 at 6:33 pm

"harping of a midwestern loon"

I like that.

samsuncle December 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Loved the picture of the two canines. One is a cute puppy the other is just a common bitch.

gef05 December 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm

What they published:
"and I said, ‘You know what? I think I must be a Republican. I don’t think I’m a Democrat."

What she said: "and I said, ‘You know what? I think I must be a wingnut stoner bitch who wants to piss in the open mouths of the dead because really, I'm this close to slitting my wrists and forming a covenant. I don’t think I’m a Democrat."

ifthethunderdontgetya December 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm

I was a reasonable, fair-minded Democrat.

Now she's an ignorant, hate-filled, right-wing fucktard.

USA! USA! USA!
~

Jason_inthe_Peg December 30, 2010 at 6:08 pm

You know what they say:

An ignorant, hate-filled, right-wing fucktard was once a fair-minded democrat that discovered they weren't smart enough to understand satire or get laid.

genxr December 30, 2010 at 3:47 pm

Maybe she could read Atlas Shrugged and become a Democrat again.

court5346 December 30, 2010 at 4:12 pm

i'd like to hear her call ayn rand a snot

nounverb911 December 30, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Can she play the xylophone?

DaSandman December 30, 2010 at 3:47 pm

And apparently none of the smarts and compassionate worldview of the Nobel Peace Prize winning president and great humanitarian rubbed off on the stupid bitch

She is literally the poster child for abortion on demand.

Barrelhse December 30, 2010 at 11:04 pm

It's not too late for a "2nd Amendment Abortion," is it?

CapeClod December 30, 2010 at 3:48 pm

She left out the part about falling asleep next to an alien seed-pod.

xsluggo December 30, 2010 at 4:13 pm

And she took over the unfortunate seed pod. It came in peace.

chascates December 30, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Working for Paul Wellstone might have given her a heart and a brain.

user-of-owls December 30, 2010 at 3:58 pm

I didn't think there was enough of Paul left intact that they could harvest his parts.

BorderJumper! December 30, 2010 at 3:50 pm

Oh, cause I'm sure Gore Vidal being gay and all had nothing to do with it. One witch article a day is as much as I can handle, Jack!

SheriffRoscoe December 30, 2010 at 3:50 pm

It was when she put the book down and laughed that she became a republican, but it was when she discovered the train's rhythmic vibrations could be strangely pleasant, that her crazy eyed look took hold.

mavenmaven December 30, 2010 at 3:51 pm

…And there was that time that I was watching Flip Wilson on the TV, and I didn't like one of his jokes, and realized at that moment that no Black person could ever Represent this Country I love so much, and when Bob Dylan started using electric guitars in his music I realized that….

fuflans December 30, 2010 at 3:53 pm

i believe michele just admitted her political beliefs are based on fiction.

trampndirtdown December 30, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Much like her religious beliefs.

SexySmurf December 30, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Good thing she didn't read the strap-on scene in Myra Breckinridge. Who knows what she would have become?

Tundra Grifter December 30, 2010 at 5:00 pm

Or if she'd gotten a Buck Loner Special…

ChessieNefercat December 30, 2010 at 6:38 pm

Who knows, but with any luck nobody but the local PD vice squad would ever have had to deal with her. *Sigh*

trampndirtdown December 30, 2010 at 8:48 pm

She would have really hated Empire.

PuckStopsHere December 30, 2010 at 10:39 pm

She married Mrya. This is all starting to make sense. Sort of…

horsedreamer_1 December 30, 2010 at 3:57 pm

You know who else worked for Jimmy Carter, only to become a shill for the Right…

She's either talking about those tacky flag bikinis or greatly confused about the audience…

WriteyWriterton December 30, 2010 at 4:01 pm

[snark off] Has she been appointed to chair any committee in the '11 House yet? If so, which?

[snark on] There is so much wrong in every sentence MB utters that – oh, hell, never mind. Happy New-Wonkette-Year to all, and make mine a double. I need it. Come to think of it, just leave the bottle.

JoeMamased December 30, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Geez, I remember reading Burr in high school and realizing that the history we were being taught may not be exactly the truth, the whole truth, etc., and certainly not from the perspective of history's losers.

But I'm not blaming Gore Vidal for making me a snotty liberal.

Lascauxcaveman December 30, 2010 at 4:41 pm

I remember reading Burr and thinking, "Heh, this is kinda fun."

But not as fun as the part in Pynchon's Mason & Dixon where George Washington is getting the surveyor boys stoned, along with with his stand-up comedian slave. Now there's some kinda revisionist history.

WABishop December 31, 2010 at 7:24 am

See? If you had read the book and been repelled by the feeling of new ideas and novel points of view invading your brain, you would now be a Republican, a Tea Partier even.

johnnymeatworth December 30, 2010 at 4:09 pm

I notice she doesn't recount the time she tried to read Naked Lunch and ended up swigging Mugwump jism in Interzone….

SorosBot December 30, 2010 at 4:22 pm

I can think of two things that are wrong with that title.

mannacler January 2, 2011 at 11:52 pm

KochFembot December 30, 2010 at 4:14 pm

That picture makes me think John Boehner doesn't like our Michele. Otherwise, he would show her how to properly spray on a tan.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm buying the charisma. I'm ready to print the bumper stickers: "Michele Porkmann – 2012"

Monsieur_Grumpe December 30, 2010 at 4:19 pm

I'm still stuck on the part where she was reading. A picture book maybe?

Well, she's certainly got the crazy eyes necessary to try to block entrance to health clinics. I used to escort people past the crazies and those eyes are a dead give away. Crazy eyes or sullen, dull looks, were all you got outside.

JustPixelz December 30, 2010 at 4:28 pm

The only effect Gore Vidal had on me was to give up reading.

Guppy06 December 30, 2010 at 4:34 pm

What's the bigger sin: reading a book, or riding a train?

mumbly_joe December 30, 2010 at 4:34 pm

Wow, I guess Carter really is History's Greatest Monster.

gijoeice December 30, 2010 at 4:45 pm

"that I would lay my life down to defend — just like every one of you in this room would, and as many of you in this room have when you wore the uniform of this great country"

So she's speaking to a room full of Republicans and war dead?

lochnessmonster December 30, 2010 at 4:56 pm

She could still lay her life down for this country she loves so much and the Constitution by joining the military as they take anything breathing nowadays, only I think she'd be part of the 25% who can't pass the Army test.

hooray4anything December 30, 2010 at 4:59 pm

I could see her reading Harry Potter and decide she wanted to be a Death Eater because JK Rowling was a little too hard on them.

Tundra Grifter December 30, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Because I ordered a pair of tickets to the Bachmann/Palin concern in Minnesota (although I live in Califormia) I still get One-L Michele's emails.

And she keeps asking for money. Over and over again.

I read she raised some $11,000,000 – more than any other House candidate in the USofA. But that wasn't enough. She keeps asking for cash. And asking. And asking.

You know, those free tickets just weren't worth it…

slappypaddy December 30, 2010 at 6:05 pm

"She keeps asking for cash. And asking. And asking."

the obamites do the same thing. and they run the printing presses now, you figure they could take care of their own cash needs.

She was wearing those huge soccer mom sunnies that soccer moms like to wear. Poor choice, Missy B!

Pragmatist2 December 30, 2010 at 6:14 pm

Did she "lust in her heart" for him?

edgydrifter December 30, 2010 at 6:23 pm

And then she watched "Return of the Jedi" and turned into a fucking Ewok.

"Or maybe it will unsettle that brain of hers so much she goes and stabs Jimmy Carter whilst belting out an aria of insanity. So on second thought, maybe it’s a bad idea."
Jimmy Carter deserves better than that. But anything that gets Crazy Eyes in Guantanamo and out of our hair can't be all bad.

SecretMuslin December 30, 2010 at 6:29 pm

I absolutely refuse to believe that this lunatic was ever "reasonable and fair-minded."

twoeightnine December 30, 2010 at 6:32 pm

It took her 3 years to read a book? I figured it would at least be 4.

(She started reading it when she went "off to college" and finished it her junior year. No one goes off to junior year.)

SaintRond December 30, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Somebody might point out to that disgusting grifter bitch that Gore Vidal was one of the Marines who landed on Iwo Jima.

JoeMamased December 31, 2010 at 1:09 am

Actually, it was Vidal's boyfriend who landed (and was killed) on Iwo Jima. Vidal, who enlisted, served on an Army freighter in the Aleutian Islands.

trampndirtdown December 31, 2010 at 4:40 pm

MistaEko December 30, 2010 at 7:17 pm

This is just like my junior year. I took Fluid Dynamics only to find my textbook was gleefully shitting all over simple newtonian mechanics, a subject I loved so dearly. And I said to myself, "You know what, maybe I'm not an engineer. I think I'm actually a sociology major."

Of course I'm not building your wastewater treatment plants (or am I?)

mumbly_joe December 30, 2010 at 7:24 pm

You know, nobody's pointed this out yet, but "reasonable, fair-minded" people don't complete rewrite their personal philosophy based on one book -pro or con- generally speaking. Randroids like Paul Ryan do, but that's what makes them terrible. Although, not as terrible as someone who *ahem* claims that they did a complete philosophical 180 because they perceived one particular novelist as mocking something that they valued. I know for a fact that things I care about* are routinely mocked by both liberals and conservatives, and the fact that liberals are typically not overtly vicious about it actually ranks pretty low on my list of reasons I'm a liberal. I know, big surprise.

*Not revere, mind you, because revering real-world figures and issues is a hair's breadth away from mythologizing them, and conversely, is also called "idolatry", which I hear is blasphemous to certain world religions out there.

Angry_Marmot December 31, 2010 at 1:12 am

What puzzles me most about Bachmann– after scanning her bio– is how someone can spend so much of her life working so hard against so many things, from light bulbs to Pell grants. It must be exhausting.

zhubajie December 30, 2010 at 7:29 pm

She read a book?

zhubajie December 30, 2010 at 7:32 pm

I had the opposite experience. I was raised Republican, voted for Nixon in '72 (from an aircraft carrier in the Tonkin Gulf). But as I got older and more experienced, I learned the Reps didn't want people like me and the Dems did. Nowadays, I'm an absurdist, writing in names like Captain Beefheart (RIP) and Long Dong Silver.

Zvi_Bleindmeis December 30, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Don Van Vliet died? I hadn't heard. That's sad. He was a genius.

I guess I'm not really a Democrat after all. I'm an absurdist.

SnarkoMarx December 30, 2010 at 7:43 pm

This is no lie- listening to Gore Vidal speak and reading some of his essays was what moved me to the left initially years ago. I had the opposite reaction that ol' crazy eyes had. Come to think of it, I usually do.

JackObin December 30, 2010 at 7:44 pm

"Burr" is a snotty novel, eh? Shit, keep Dostoyevsky's "The Idiot" away from that idiot.

jus_wonderin December 30, 2010 at 7:51 pm

I have been away for awhile. I think the only thing I can add is…she's a khunt.

trampndirtdown December 30, 2010 at 8:38 pm

Haha I'm reading Burr right now, Gore Vidal has always been one of my favorite authors, still I haven't felt the urge to turn to fascism…err I mean conservatism.

BarackMyWorld December 30, 2010 at 8:41 pm

And that switch, like everything else she believes, came from a logical fallacy where she linked two things together in a way that makes no sense. Yes, her entire life for the last 30 years is based on a non sequitur. Oh, the stupid….how it must hurt….

JoeMamased December 31, 2010 at 12:43 am

If it hurt that much, you'd think there'd be less of it.

ttommyunger December 30, 2010 at 10:06 pm

She liked goober-boy because she still had her looks back then and she could tell he lusted for her in his heart, and a little in his penis, too. Vidal, on the other hand, could never be tempted by her fetid netherparts, no matter how much she batted her eyes and licked her lips in his general direction and gave him that "You haven't lived until you've balled a completely certifiable nutjob" look.

PublicLuxury December 30, 2010 at 10:27 pm

Jack posted this at about 3:30 and I can't stop coming back to the photo again and agian to admire the sunglasses outline on her half tanned face. She looks like a real live teatard rectum. There. Now I will be able to rest.

les_gvt December 30, 2010 at 10:49 pm

heaven forbid any of you get out and snow ski, because then you too would have a wind burn on your face, and I won't dare suggest you get out of your carbon emission powered air conditioner during the summer to go water skiing

ShaveTheWhales December 30, 2010 at 11:16 pm

I don't know why I'm bothering to do this (actually, I do — I'm putting off some annoying work), but:

1. Not windburn. Her lower face, neck, and right arm are all the same tan.

2. That would be water-skiing behind the carbon emission powered, oil-polluting ski boat, would it?

les_gvt December 30, 2010 at 11:38 pm

Her face looks just like most of my families after the last few days at Ruidosa, running around on snowmobiles and snow skis.

And where we live, we get all 4 liberals in the county to blow on the sail of our boat, to propel it while we ski. However, to get the boat to the lake, I do drive my 78 smoke belching 454 one ton dually with the BBQ going in the back

I get 4.5 mph going downhill, the windows open and jammed into neutral- free wheeling- where I can.

ps, every 30 min or so, we turn on the trolling motor to give them a break

pps- now that i think about it, maybe i can hook the a/c motor to the boat, and make it go faster

les_gvt December 30, 2010 at 11:41 pm

Sorry- but with your moniker, I was laughing so hard, I had to write the other. I almost asked how many cans of Barbasol and how many Good News razors it takes to shave a whale

I too am putting off annoying house work

JoeMamased December 31, 2010 at 1:11 am

Um, what makes you think that photo was even taken during (snow) ski season? From her clothing and surroundings, looks like warm weather.

I can't believe no one made mention of the fact that not only was she reading Gore Vidal and working on Carter's campaign, but the bitch was on one of them fancy, socialist Amtraks, you know, the devil's personal coach.

And, woe is Michigan for hosting her. Apparently, out completely sane and liberal Republican governor-elect invited her to give teatarded street-cred to his Michigan GOP chairman pick, you know, the one who it was found how donated to the campaigns of just about every local Democratic politician in Detroit and Michigan…oh, and Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore, too. Snyder thought this was a good way to make-up for the fact that he thinks his base is bat-shit insane and easily fooled.

Sorry I'm late to the party but "he thinks his base is bat-shit insane and easily fooled" – so you're saying he's Republican insider? Because I assume that applies to the Koch brothers, Rove, etc.

I just love the "logic" involved:

I'm X.
Somebody else who's X says something I don't like.
So I must not be X.
Therefore I'm -X.
