Give us a kiss???Why is Michele Bachmann trying to hypnotize this llama? Llamas are not television cameras, Michele. The llama looks a lot more calm than we would feel with Michele Bachmann right in front of our face like that. Here is a fun fact: Michele is more engaged in creeping out this llama than she is with her elected, salaried job of representing her constituents in Washington. Bachmann has missed nearly 40% of House votes since she began her campaign!

We bet any number of Americans would like this nice gig — a six-figure salary, solid health benefits, ample free time to pursue your personal projects. Getting paid for not working, though? That kind of sounds like… oh, what’s the word again…eh, nevermind.

From The Hill:

Bachmann, the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus who has surged toward the top of the Republican presidential field, has missed 50 of 135 votes since formally announcing her candidacy on June 27 in Waterloo, Iowa.

Bachmann is one of three House members seeking the Republican presidential nomination. Both GOP Reps. Ron Paul (Texas) and Thaddeus McCotter (Mich.) are waging long-shot bids for the party nod.

Paul has missed 25 of 307 votes — about 8 percent — since entering the race May 13. McCotter has missed almost 10 percent: 13 of 135 votes since starting his campaign at the beginning of this month.

It’s also possible that Michele just likes campaigning better than her actual job, since the only bills she has passed to date include a bill to recognize the 150th anniversary of the state of Minnesota three weeks after the fact and a bill recognizing September as “National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month.” Besides that, Minneapolis alt-weekly City Pages notes that she mostly sticks to writing bills no one else will cosponsor, because she is a loon ball:

Despite Bachmann’s early success in the presidential polls, her congressional record is composed almost entirely of confusion and failure. She’s authored bills that not a single other lawmaker will cosponsor; she’s sponsored the exact same failing bills over and over again; she’s entered bills on obscure or trivial topics.

Oh well, at least as long as she is on the campaign trail she isn’t filling up everyone else’s desks with Xerox copies of her pointless legislation scribbled in the margins of Billy Graham Bible study guides. [The Hill/ City Pages]

            Here in Oregon, there are a number of farms that have llamas and alpacas, and they are just amazing, with their fluffy fur, sweet faces, and long-lashed eyes — as though they were invented by six-year-old girls. I have an alpaca sweater that I bought years ago, and you're right, their fur (hair? wool?) is as soft as a dream.

  • Llamas everywhere should be mortified by this pic.
    Which reminds me of an earlier one featuring another dim bimbo.. All that's missing is the flag desecration but Bachmann is making up for that by pissing on the stature of her office instead.

  • genxr

    Actually I think the llama is whispering to her. Remember who is smarter in this picture.

  • arihaya

    did she set up fake ranch/farm also?

    if yes then she is shoe-in for GOP nomination

    • PubOption

      Look at her upper arms, seems to be a farmer's tan there.

  • Callyson

    This wouldn't be the first time Michele supported welfare…from City Paper:
    she tried to add a pro-life section to the Social Security Act to pay for a variety of things that would discourage women from having abortions.
    It's interesting just how far-reaching Bachmann imagined this bill to be. It proposes to fund "any other service designed to assist a qualified individual who is a woman" — that "woman" part is probably important — "to carry her unborn child to term…including the provision of…baby food, maternity or baby clothing, baby furniture, or information or education (including classes), regarding prenatal care, childbirth, adoption, parenting, chastity, or abstinence."
    Essentially, this bill is offering chunks of money — under the broad label of "any other service" — just to stop a woman from having an abortion. Normally Bachmann doesn't support welfare handouts, but in this case she's willing to use unlimited piles of taxpayer money to pay for diapers, Gerbers, and chastity classes.
    Bachmann isn't above introducing bills that seem tailored just for her.
    On April 23, 2009, the congresswoman pushed for a law that would authorize state money to send foster kids to private schools. On top of tuition, the state dollars would also cover transportation costs.
    This probably seemed like a fantastic idea to a woman with 23 foster kids and a distaste for the public school system.
    But she won't vote to raise the debt ceiling. That would be bad.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      I'm wondering how "chastity or abstinence" is going to help a woman carry her unborn child to term. Not hard to see why nobody will co-sponsor the mindless stream-of-consciousness crap she comes up with.

      Oh, and shouldn't her so-called "salary" run out after 99 weeks?

    • tessiee

      She may be a nut and a thoroughly reprehensible human being, but this?

      "including the provision of…baby food, maternity or baby clothing, baby furniture, or information or education (including classes), regarding prenatal care, childbirth, adoption, parenting"

      I have to say, is at least preferable to the kind of shitbags who want to outlaw abortion and birth control and also cut funding for mothers and babies.

      • Ruhe

        I agree. It's weird that she went that way. I've thought for a long time that the best strategy for pro-choice dems to pursue would be to constantly challenge their dingbat counterparts to put their money where their mouth is and enact broad subsidies to support the actual carrying, birthing and raising of these precious fetuses they care so much about.

  • OkieDokieDog

  • Duly_Noted

    I think continuing her salary while she's on the campaign trail is a small price to pay for keeping her out of the House.

    • Hopefully Barry will be stopping the paychecks for all of Congress and their staphs on August 2nd. That'll learn 'em.

    • flamingpdog

      Agreed. The first boss I ever had in gubmint service used to come in at 8AM and talk on the phone for half an hour and go MIA for the rest of the day until 4:30 PM when he would come back in and talk on the phone for another half hour. We would grind our teeth that he was getting paid for doing almost nothing, but were grateful at the same time because on those rare occasions he actually attempted to "work" ( = bluster and throw his weight around), he invariably would phuck up what had been a smoothly-running operation in his absence.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Hey, Bachmann's not a failure, she's just ahead of her time — sooner or later we're going to want to pass a bill that adds the Nicene Creed to the Pledge of Allegiance, or the one that prohibits daycare centers from being run in accordance with Sharia law, or the one that prohibits building a tower so high it reaches heaven and offends The LORD. Just you wait.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Well, that first one obviously wouldn't pass the Senate, as it's clearly a church/state conflict, and the Senate, being the smarter ones, would catch that.

      But those other two would pass both houses, easy, with significant Dem support. I mean, c'mon, it's all about the jobs!

    Bachmann has missed nearly 40% of House votes

    You say that as if it were a bad thing.

  • MinAgain

    It's a double-edged sword. On the one hand, she's not doing her job as a representative. OTOH, she's insane, so her failure to vote is probably a good thing.

  • x111e7thst

    Advice to llama. If Bachmann tries to kiss you avoid her tongue at all costs.

    Michele's new campaign song

  • fuflans

    she's looking a little 'lizard people' like isn't she?

  • Redhead

    "her congressional record is composed almost entirely of confusion and failure"
    Wait wait wait. I thought "Undefeated" was the story of Sarah Palin's political "career," not Bachmann's.

  • orygoon

    All I got is borrowed:

    " The one-l lama,
    He's a priest.
    The two-l llama,
    He's a beast.
    And I will bet
    A silk pajama
    There isn't any
    Three-l lllama."

    Odgen Nash, of course

    • MinAgain

      Bow down.

  • genxr

    That look on her face shows her reaction to another "gotcha" question from the llama stream media.

  • kissawookiee

    There was an old Inca from Puno
    Who said, "There is one thing I do know.
    A woman is fine, and a sheep is divine,
    But a llama is numero uno."

  • Thurman Munster IV

    Yay! It's no downfist Tuesday. Upfists for everyone, including the one for Boehner's ass

  • Oblios_Cap

    the only bills she has passed to date include a bill to recognize the 150th anniversary of the state of Minnesota three weeks after the fact and a bill recognizing September as “National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month.”

    That's a good thing!

  • KotBR

    Poor Michelle, she thought she was getting on a reality show when she got the invitation from 'Lorenzo's Llamas'…

  • Eve8Apples

    She's one of those people who actually does her employer a favor by not showing up to work.

  • I'm pretty sure that's a gay llama…

  • randcoolcatdaddy

    Jeebus, woman, did you steal that dress from leftover costumes tossed out from an episode of Doris Day's sixties sitcom by any chance?

    There's a reason many sixties fashions died. If Marcus picked out that dress for you, you're going to have to find another ex-gay "friend" to pick out your clothing.

    • AJWjr.

      I'm guessing it was sewn together by one of her dozens of foster girls from an old Mode O' Day pattern.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    From Michele's look, I'm betting the Llama is a lesbian.

    • tessiee

      A Llesbian llama?
      Who knew that there was such a thing as llivestock that lliked to llick…

      OK, I'll stop now.

  • Nostrildamus

    Michele to llama: Have you ever been in Patagonia? Would you like to be? I'm wearing them.

  • mumbly_joe

    Well, it's not like she spent a good chunk of the past couple of years telling preposterous lies about the frequency with which Obama had voted "present" as a legislator or anything, so I don't see the problem.

  • Sticking with our editor's livestock theme, went to our beloved Sparky McDownfister's IntenseDebate profile and see that the annoying sheeple is following 1,103. Sweet baby jebus Sparky is stalking a grand plus. How long before ol' Sparky pullz out the gun and starts shooting?

    • AJWjr.

      I'm good with it, as long as he starts with himself.

    • ThundercatHo

      I'd like to remind Sparky McSpankypants that some libunatics own guns, too. My hubby took out a groundhog at 60 yds with a .22 pistol last night. Also, that liberal hunting permit that somebody linked to the other day really creeped me the hell out.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Is there a way to pay the entire rest of the Republican conference to stay out of Washington?

    • ThundercatHo

      Perhaps lure them the county fairs with the promise of tame livestock and deep-fried twinkies?

    • flamingpdog

      Learn a lesson from Iraq – large pallettes of cash might help.

  • owhatever

    You are getting sleepy, Michele. Your eyelids are heavy. Now lay down and get comfortable. We're about to make a little llama.

  • Nopantsmcgee

    How'd they get that llama in that pretty yellow dress is what I want to know.

  • AJWjr.
  • Buckminster

    Let's see if I've got this straight:
    1. Welfare is bad.
    2. Government if bad.
    3. But government spending that benefits the Bachmanns is ok?

    My head asploded.

  • Steverino247

    Again with the "O" face photos of Michele…

  • tessiee

    If I absolutely HAD to pay her for SOMETHING?
    Crazy going to the zoo is significantly better (or at least less harmful) than crazy making the laws that the rest of us have to follow.

  • poorgradstudent

    Michelle Bachmann is more Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin.

  • justkillmenow

    Kind of OT, but…
    Sis who works in Ankeny, IA cruised by a Bachmann campaign stop over lunch, but sadly Crazy Eyes was running late. Only a couple of news outlets on hand (FOX of course) and no Teatards in tricorner hats.
    Oddly, this stop is at a deli. Seems a little ethnic and elitist for Michele.

  • GOPCrusher

    September is Waterhead Awareness Month?
    Just another Hallmark invented holiday.

  • Manhattan123

    If that llama had spit in her face, or whatever it is llamas do, I would have made it King of the Llamas.

    I used to have drapes with the same pattern as her dress. They smelled like cigarette smoke and vomit.

    Q: What does a llama have two of, that Michele Bachmann only has one of?

    1. Testicles
    2. "l"s
    3. Brain cells
    4. "All of them, Katie"

  • Iam_Who_Iam

    Me neither, I was just able to find a link to this post. Where have all of our Wonkettes gone? I feel a panic coming on! I need a fix, and I need it now!

    • Limeylizzie

      I'm here. Iam_Who_Iam, don't worry your pretty, little head about it.

    Oh phew! I found them… they are all here:

  • Pragmatist2

    A one "l" lama is a priest
    A two "l" llama is a beast
    But I would bet a silk pajama
    You'll never see a three "l" lama.

  • JackObin

    Well, we can add poor taste in clothing to this ridiculous fool's long list of stupidity. NEVER wear yellow prints to a llama show.

  • HelmutNewton

    Confusion and Failure. Now THERE'S a disturbingly accurate campaign slogan if I ever heard one.

  • DemonicRage

    This reminds me of people who bothered to count the number of times that State Senator Obama or US Senator Obama voted himself "present," rather than taking a stand on issues that came before the legislative body of which he was a part. Who cares about these statistics? She is out there, putting eye liner on, reminding us of how many children she funded as foster children, and how many gay men her husband "cured" by life management. Her base doesn't care about statistics such as the ones that you have tallied here. It's all about the deep sense of personal satisfaction each one of them feels, every time she looks into the camera (or off to the side, depending on how she feels that day) and says the magic mantra, "I know that President Obama will be A ONE TERM PRESIDENT!"

    Who is looking after her 23 kids? Please don't reply "Marcus" . . .

    Llama, huh?

    Hmm Listen Wonkete. This, is not communist Mexico. How hard is it to SPEAK SOME ENGLISH? SOLDIERS ARE DIEING FOR YOUR FREEDOM and u have to use a SPANAISH word???Call it what t is and Respect! those who protect us!

  • No tongues!

  • RociStone

    The poor gal must feel so inadequate.. The Llama can spit farther, has a better personality, is more truthful, and actually performs a useful function in the culture where it comes from. Poor Crazy Eyes", always coming off second best…
