what you don't realize is that is michele bachmann under there.Hollering pill junkie loser welfare brat Michele Bachmann promises everybody that if she is elected President, the price of gas will come down to $2. “That will happen,” she says, and nothing else. Ominous! Since Michele won’t specify how this will happen, we will reason through her promise: Bachmann yodels on and on in her speech that gas was $1.79 when Obama took office, which stupid, annoying experts note was the result of the economic crash forcing businesses and humans to stop shipping things or traveling anywhere. And since new domestic drilling can only produce minimal quantities compared to demand that OPEC would offset anyway by reducing output and thus have minimal to zero impact on gas prices, the only way to reduce prices again would be to just destroy the economy anew. But at least we will still have Jesus and a bargain $2 way for Americans to off themselves running the car motor in the closed garage, right Michele?

From CNNMoney:

“You have to be careful what you wish for because the recipe for cheap prices these days is economic disaster,“ [chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service Tom Kloza] said.

Since early 2009, the economy has recovered somewhat and demand for crude has risen. It has even spiked in the developing world — especially in China, India and South America.

Kloza said that increased crude demand is the principal driver behind higher gas prices.

“We’re going to have to recognize the rest of the world has this increasing appetite for oil,“ he said. “If we go below $2 a gallon, it probably means there has been a lot of wealth loss and we are in a deflationary period.“

Whatever works, guys. [CNNMoney]

      I prefer to think that she is emulating the platonic ideal of stupidity that Sarah Palin was able to achieve during her run for Vice-President.

    • GOPCrusher

      I'm even more surprised by the fact that an oil "expert" is trying to convince people that paying less than 2 bucks a gallon for gas equates to economic disaster. Maybe for Mobil-Exxon, but not for Joe and Jane Sixpack that have to commute 50 miles a day to get to their low paying job.

  • pills, baby, pills.

    Face it, Michele's "law degree" is from Oral Roberts University, and her "husband" practices Genital Redirective Psychotherapy. I'm guessing that her understanding of economics is either fraudulent or seriously deficient as well.

    • Terry

      You could really put every aspect of her life and supposed accomplishments in quotation marks, couldn't you?

    • HedonismBot

      "her "husband" practices Genital Redirective Psychotherapy"
      Does that mean, if he concentrates really hard, he can turn his vagina into a penis? That makes about as much sense as "praying away the gay," or putting one's economic faith in an "invisible hand." I was just lamenting the other day how the real world keeps disrupting my fantasy life. I'm going to become a Republican, so I can just go ahead and ignore it.

  • I am pretty sure that gas was more expensive than $1.79 but if she can get the price to go down to $2 she has made some sort of deal with the Koch brothers and it is proof that the price of gas is all based on political tricks.

      • I am a student of wine (no one knows all of it…) and preparing to take the certified sommelier exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers. People who make fun of the wine you drink are snobs. Those same people won't drink Beaujolais (nouveau or otherwise) because because the Gamay grape is inferior. Don't sweat it. It leaves more good wine for us!

    • A gallon of unleaded regular gas was $1.79 national average on Obama's inauguration day. It kinda bottomed out that day, then started going back up. A few months before that, the average price hit $4.12 — the all time high.

    • Serolf_Divad

      You just gave me a great idea for a business: $1.00 Gas

      That's right: I'll open up a gas station called "$1.00 GAS." Gas will be $1.00. Every day. 24/7. That's right our price will always stay the same, no matter what happens to the economy or whatever tricks OPEC decides to play. Come to my gas station and the price will never vary… it will always be $1.00. Only the amount of gas you get for a $1.00 will vary. But the price of gas itself will be FIXED, FIXED, FIXED!

      • And don't forget nitrogen is a gas too. Dirt cheap.

        • Serolf_Divad

          Blows up baloon and hands it to customer: There you go, buddy. That'll be a dollar. What do you mean that's not what you meant?

        I'll bring my thimble.

  • Pragmatist2

    Oh, it will happen. If she gets elected a Depression will follow and deflation will bring the price of gas down like a stone. Of course, no one will be able to afford 42 a gallon, but the price will be down.

  • SorosBot

    The far right has been agitating for deflation, with their anger over the possibility that the Fed might try to send out more money to help employment. It would help the banks and credit companies and screw over the middle class and poor, so that fits with their goal of a return to feudalism.

  • AJWjr.

    An Arizona wingnut Jewish friend of mine tells me the "real" price of gas hasn't gone up, ever. When gas was a quarter a gallon, quarters were made of silver, and the value of that quarter's worth of silver is now about $4, so therefore the price of a gallon of gas, at $3.50, is actually less than a quarter a gallon.
    In response to his argument, I compared how many gallons of gas you could buy on 40 hours of minimum wages in 1965 vs how many gallons of gas you can buy on 40 hours of minimum wages in 2011, and I think I win the argument, except we weren't old enough to work in 1965, and neither of us work now, either.

      She'd get a lot more of the electorate if she promised pot in every chicken.

  • RedneckMuslin

    Come on guys! Her plan is to take her many government subsudies and buy us all gas. It's simple, morans.

    • Negropolis

      Sharing is socialist. She got hers', now go get your own.

  • Who should you believe when it comes to the economy–a certifiable loony for whom the most important national issued is incandescent light bulbs or people who actually know something?

    Seems clear to me that Michele is the winner.

    “You have to be careful what you wish for because the recipe for cheap prices these days is economic disaster,“ [chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service Tom Kloza] said.

    Perfect. Economic disaster is just what the GOP/ teabaggers want. They wanted economic collapse in refusing to raise the debt ceiling. Anything so that Obama is defeated, regardless of the consequences. Single-minded stupidity. Also.

  • jus_wonderin

    Michele, just get the price of hard liquor down. Then we won't care about gas prices.

    • proudgrampa

      Wouldn't that be awesome? Bombay Sapphire for $2.00 a gallon!

  • Fox n Fiends

    Statement like this really smoke those polls.

  • genxr

    When she becomes President, you'll be able to trade slave children for gasoline in Bartertown.

    • PristinePantalones

      What if you don't have any slave children? (Eyes remaining inhabitants of home uneasily)

  • I certainly hope that she hasn’t given up on protecting the endangered incandescent light bulb. Stay focused Michele!

  • James Michael Curley

    You notice the blovating twat does not mention that six months earlier, July 2008, gasoline was $4.22 regular.

  • Pray for rain, pray away the gay, pray away the price. It's all the same thing, right? And works every time!

  • terriblyfamous

    God, I just know all the dumbs and the olds are going "hoo-rah, that's the gal for me!" Fucking penny-pinchers.

  • x111e7thst

    The price of gas will come way down as soon as we stop coddling the Welfare Queens who use it all up by driving around in their solid gold Caddys.

  • proudgrampa

    No doubt about it, Bachmann is an insult to stupidity.

    • PristinePantalones

      What was it Schiller said? Against Michele, the gods themselves contend in vain?

  • DahBoner

    $2? Why so much?

    Back in the day, when we had a President who raised taxes on the rich, balanced the budget, generated a surplus, gas was only $1 a gallon in Phoenix…

  • PostApocalypse

    Hey Wonkette!

    I luvs my American porno and my American political snark. But you libtards never understand the truth of seperate but equal. Howsabout we get rid of PETA blondie blowing a cucumber over there so I can read my dumb comedy at work without making people uncomfortable?

    • proudgrampa

      But Wonkette has always been my "one-stop shop" for porn and snark!

      • PostApocalypse

        So is everybody reading Wonkette in a dark room with the blinds drawn, then? Am I doing it wrong?

  • SheriffRoscoe

    I think I see another one of those "gotcha" questions coming up at the next debate.

      Lock the cashbox!

  • prommie

    Our founding fathers worked tirelessly for free slaves, and though they never attained their goal, Michele will make their dream a reality: Free Slaves for all, and $2.00 a gallon gas!

    • PristinePantalones

      OK, so, um, how exactly will we recognize these "free slaves"? Any distinguishing marks? (Continues rubbing "Spade Fade" into skin)

  • mavenmaven

    It means she has the support of certain oil companies who will again cynically exploit oil prices for political gain, as they did during the Bush years.

  • owhatever

    None of the Founding Fathers paid more than two dollars a gallon for gasoline, not even John Quincy Adams. Marcus, meanwhile, is quite upset with the higher prices of man-bras.

    • PristinePantalones

      I'm sure Michele's will hold his moobs quite nicely.

  • smitallica

    The Day Obama was inaugurated, the temperature in DC was in the 20s. Today it's hovering near 100. OBAMAR CAUSES THE GLOBAL WARMINGZ (which is a liberal myth).

    Also, Bachmann is a cunt.

  • ttommyunger

    I had a dream last night: instead of Perry/Palin for 2012, it was Bachmann/Palin. ..Also had a sizable wet spot on the sheet.

    • zhubajie

      Well, I've long suspected Palin was our destiny. With Bachmann as partner, they can ensure our total degradation.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Gas was $1.79 when Obama took office?

    The interwebs may say its true, but I call bullshit.

    • Fukui_sanYesOta

      She's actually right. However, you may notice that it hit $4.12 around 7/2008 and then dropped precipitously. What on earth could be the reason for that? I think God did it.

      • BarackMyWorld

        I looked it up too, but don't remember it being that low. Maybe I just didn't buy any gas for that one day she's using as her point of reference.

        • Negropolis

          Well, you know gas is different prices all around the country at any given time, right? Hell, it can be different from station to station in the same metro area. Sometimes, many pennies different. Just because gas wasn't $1.79 where you were doesn't mean that's what the average wasn't. I honestly don't get why people are having such a hard time believing this.

    "Hollering pill junkie loser welfare brat Michele Bachmann"

    Thank you, Kirsten, this is my new fave description of ole Crazy Eyes

  • Negropolis

    "Michele Bachmann Offers to Crash Economy to (fill in the blank)."

    Really, what more needs to be said? Well, it would be nice if Americans have any idea how cheap our energy is.

  • I think she just went full retard.

    You never go full retard.

  • edconley7

    If she puts in her proposed reforms and the economy tanks into a depression and gas goes to $1.25 then she will be able to say she exceeded her goal.

  • Walkinwiddaking

    This gal would certainly do herself a world of good (and I apologize in advance if someone has already made reference to this) if she could just find a running mate with the last name of Turner.
