Quitter Bachmann Withdraws Swiss Citizenship (To Work Undercover)

by Jim Newell

Sure, let's go with the clown oneWe’ve seen this ruse before, Bachmann. You think no one would suspect it, then you get caught, and now you’re all, “Oh, I’m done being Swiss.” She only loves “America” now. We’re not buying it, SPY. This continues to all be the Left’s fault.

Here’s her letter, which essentially says, “I FUCKING LOVE THE UNITED STATES, HAMBURGERS, PIE, AND WAR.” The Greatest. Nation. The World. Has. Ever. Known. Ever. Best. Winners. God. America:

“Today I sent a letter to the Swiss Consulate requesting withdrawal of my dual Swiss citizenship, which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978.”

“I took this action because I want to make it perfectly clear: I was born in America and I am a proud American citizen. I am, and always have been, 100 percent committed to our United States Constitution and the United States of America. As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran, I am proud of my allegiance to the greatest nation the world has ever known.”

This is so stupid funny. Can you imagine caring about this? We knew they’d freak but wow, just check out this one column in the DC Examiner: “Michele Bachmann must immediately step down.” They hate her now. Thanks a lot, moral relativist post-national Left.

Is Marcus done being a Swiss Miss?

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

He was devastated to lose those jugs mugs.

Guppy May 10, 2012 at 4:30 pm

And don't forget the handles pigtails!

justkillmenow May 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

He's all about the lederhosen.

weejee May 10, 2012 at 4:31 pm

She1ey said she wanted to be a leader, but she was just hosin' us.

DaRooster May 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

He's staying…

Crank_Tango May 10, 2012 at 4:20 pm

he loves having those little marshmallows in his mouth, at any rate.

MaxNeanderthal May 10, 2012 at 4:26 pm

No "Blowing the (Alpen)horn" jokes, please…

Barb May 10, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Marcus isn't yodeling, he's scroteling.

Douché May 10, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Fuck that, no take backs. Go eat some cheese or something!!! But become a Swisser, or whatever and stay the fuck over there.

MrFizzy May 10, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Oh, like any country other than 'merca would put up with her bullshit.

MrFizzy May 10, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Swiss national day of mourning in three, two, one…..

GeorgiaBurning May 10, 2012 at 5:03 pm

That was yesterday.

Negropolis May 11, 2012 at 1:36 am

More like a Swiss National Day of Morning to celebrate this momentuous occassion of her keeping her grimey ass over here. lol

MrFizzy May 11, 2012 at 8:39 am

SmutBoffin May 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

If I wasn't a moral relativist, I'd feel bad about this.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I'm on the fence about being a relativist. I mean, for others it might make sense but I'm not sure it makes sense for me.

Preferred Customer May 10, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I'm certainly in no position to judge your choices.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I thank you for your consideration and flexibility, if indeed that's what you were exercising. Far be it from me to judge.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:15 pm

All I know is my gut says maybe.

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I'm more on board with Heisenberg. I think.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:32 pm

My instinct says you might be right.

rickmaci May 10, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I agree with Einstein, it's all relative.

SorosBot May 10, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Yeah, my perception of morality varies dependent on my velocity relative to the moral event I'm perceiving and the gravity of the situation too.

rickmaci May 10, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Squared.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:34 pm

QUANTUM MECHANICS LIBEL!

Jukesgrrl May 10, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Moral relativism, pffft. I live to judge and place blame.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 10, 2012 at 5:17 pm

This. Yes. Judging followed by skullfucking.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I'm waiting for Bristol Palin to blog about it before I know what to think.

randcoolcatdaddy May 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Darn. Now Marcus can't open that Swiss sperm bank account.

timbo71351 May 10, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I think he would be more likely to make a massive withdrawal from a Swiss sperm bank, than to put anything in the bank…….

randcoolcatdaddy May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Depends on who is carrying the deposit at the time.

vtxmcrider May 10, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Marcus was turned down at the sperm bank when they determined that he actually ejaculates pure estrogen.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Poor Mark Krikorian. Now he has to credit libs with saving a patriot.

SorosBot May 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm

"As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran"

Then why didn't Michele enter the military herself? Does she hate America?

Fukui-sanYesRadio May 10, 2012 at 4:09 pm

She's done a long tour of duty with a Rear Admiral.

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

He sure likes them "stern shots."

Karma_Suture May 12, 2012 at 11:01 am

Applying stem to stern since…….

ManchuCandidate May 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Who spends way too much time on the Poop deck.

MaxNeanderthal May 10, 2012 at 5:36 pm

She keeps her naval base full of discharged seamen….

freddymcmurray May 11, 2012 at 5:56 am

What's long and hard and full of seamen? A submarine. Rimshot. I'll be here all weekend.

Armyin' is for the menfolk. Childrenin' is for the womenfolk.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:23 pm

So that's why Marcus works from home.

Jukesgrrl May 10, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Especially when it's a paid position.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Didn't you see The Men Who Stare at Goats? She was the goat.

…It explains a lot, actually.

starfanglednut May 10, 2012 at 9:56 pm

I loved that movie. It was so quirky.

tessiee May 10, 2012 at 10:21 pm

"The Men Who Stare at Goats who Kiss Llamas"

Lascauxcaveman May 10, 2012 at 4:49 pm

I just assumed it was the fault of Don't Ask Don't Tell. She's openly married to a homo and all.

GOPCrusher May 10, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Her son is in AmeriCorps. Isn't that like the Coast Guard or something?

HistoriCat May 10, 2012 at 5:45 pm

More like FEMA camp counselors. Wake up sheeple!

freddymcmurray May 11, 2012 at 5:58 am

More like a Norwegian socialist indoctrination camp counselor.

vulpes82 May 10, 2012 at 5:29 pm

LESBIANS might try to talk to her in the BATHROOM!

Terry May 10, 2012 at 6:19 pm

The military has some standards, you know.

Negropolis May 11, 2012 at 1:38 am

Because that'd be unbecoming of an upright, Christian woman, silly.

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:07 pm

She withdrew when she found out that just being a Swiss citizen does not mean you are automatically conferred with a private Swiss bank account with a bajillion Swiss Francs in it.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:08 pm

She probably thought that's how Mitt got his wealth

Preferred Customer May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

He got his wealth the same way Mother Gothel got hers.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm

…Magic hair?

SorosBot May 10, 2012 at 4:21 pm

She probably thought they give those nice army knives with citizenship too.

sewollef May 10, 2012 at 7:29 pm

It does mean as a Swiss citizen, you are obliged to serve in the Swiss military. As this states:

"Having another citizenship does not, in general, influence Swiss military requirements. Swiss who can show they have dual citizenship and have fulfilled military service requirements, civil service or other related duties in that country are excused from Swiss military obligations according to accords signed with those states. Agreements exist with, among others, Germany, France, and the US.

For more information on military obligations for Swiss abroad and dual citizens, please contact army commanders, personnel division: Führungsstab der Armee, Personelles der Armee (FGG 1), Sektion Wehrpflicht/ Mutationen, 3003 Bern."

Women can sidestep that requirement though… shame really.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:17 am

Maybe she found out that Swiss citizens are required to buy health insurance, by government mandate. (You can see how it's wrecked their economy.)

ManchuCandidate May 10, 2012 at 4:08 pm

There's a sad sort of whinging from the Congressional Halls
And the bells in the steeple too
And in the US America an absurd little turd
Is popping out to say "Cuckoo"
Cuckoo, cuckoo

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, crazy eyes
You can't come and must stay where you are.

Troglodeity May 10, 2012 at 6:16 pm

(Argh, I didn't notice your contribution until I'd posted my far inferior version.)

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:19 am

Like this.

James Michael Curley May 10, 2012 at 4:08 pm

To lose her Swiss citizens ship she has to serve ten years in the Kenyan Army.

chascates May 10, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Swiss taint lasts forever, Shelly. BTW, they have a citizen army and most men have a fully-auto rifle at home. You would have loved it there.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Not only that, but they get that rifle during their forced enscription in the Swiss Army.

That's right: military service is required of all adult Swiss citizens.

Guppy May 10, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Having an automatic weapon: yay!
Having to use that weapon in defense of the state: boo!

Lascauxcaveman May 10, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Didn't they recently put a ban on building mosques, too?

She was born for this place!

YasserArraFeck May 10, 2012 at 5:10 pm

That rifle's no good if you can't carry it with you everywhere – to church, Starbucks, the swimming pool, because Stand Your Ground. Having an assault rifle in your closet is Euro faggy.

Poindexter718 May 10, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Too late, traitor.

PS: Her conception sounds like the biggest goddamn joint services operation since D-Day.

NYNYNYjr May 11, 2012 at 12:42 am

"Former Swiss citizen Michel Bachman"

littlebigdaddy May 10, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I call bullshit. I think she failed the marksmanship test.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:17 pm

The yodeling portion's a killer.

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Ricolaaaaaa!!!!

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:40 pm

But she passed the big-ass horn blow with ease

chascates May 10, 2012 at 4:41 pm

With her big ass?

tessiee May 10, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Not as easily as Marcus passed it.

SayItWithWookies May 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

“Today I sent a letter to the Swiss Consulate requesting withdrawal of my dual Swiss citizenship, which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978.”

Oh, so it was imposed on you without your knowledge or consent? Then what's up with the previous sentence that says "Two days after a Swiss TV news crew broke the story that Bachmann sought in February to have her Swiss citizenship registered by Swiss authorities…?"

And of course she's one of the shrill voices on the right repeating the meme that President Obama blames everyone else for his problems, while she's the one actually doing that.

Mumbletypeg May 10, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Oh Wookies — you and your "Gotcha!" questions answers…

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:43 pm

As a dual citizen myself, allow me:

You can have dual citizenship but never know it. She got hers by marry Marcia…I mean, Marcus. The Swiss government never officially recognized it, but by law, she had it.

So when she realized she was eligible, it really is just a matter of filling in a form, which acknowledges that she now recognizes she has the citizenship she's had since she married Marsha….MARCUS.

In other words, she's weaseling, because it takes an affirmative act, not a passive one, to do that.

SayItWithWookies May 10, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Yesterday she was a proud citizen of Switzerland who had applied to have that made official, and today she's correcting something that was an automatic and bureaucratic change of status from way back — I'm sure the Swiss are thrilled with her high-handed "I'm an American all the way" rhetoric too.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:59 pm

They'll declare war, no doubt. You know those swiss, always taking sides…

EloquentScience May 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

First Lugar, next Michelle?

Preferred Customer May 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

You know who ELSE is a dual Swiss/US citizen?

Bob Lutz, that's who. Can we talk about him instead? Because he's a lot cooler than Michele Bachmann.

Wait, I feel like I did this wrong, somehow.

NYNYNYjr May 11, 2012 at 12:43 am

I want to see more birth certificates!!

SudsMcKenzie May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

So, was she "off" her meds today or "on", I honestly cant tell anymore.

Jukesgrrl May 10, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Hey Suds, OT, but great work in Wisconsin! I'm on the tightest budget of my life, but I'm sure I can find something to do without this month. Tom Barrett needs the money more than I do. Continued success to you and all the Wisconsin Wonkets.

SudsMcKenzie May 10, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Thank you, I work in a building with 993 govt. employees and we are all on pins a needles. It's gonna be close, I am personally going to drag my "never voted ever" brother to the polls. Again, thanks!

ChessieNefercat May 10, 2012 at 7:15 pm

"So, was she "off" her meds today or "on","

Yes.

niblick77 May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Even Obama, who was born in Kenya, does not claim dual citizenship.

DaRooster May 10, 2012 at 4:13 pm

"…which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978.”
Because the Swiss protect the rights of The Gays my husband.

Arkoday May 10, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Meh. Etch-A-Sketch Snatch.

Beowoof May 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I see the Swiss being elated by this move.

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:15 pm

"As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran"

As a person of Swiss ancestry, who served in the Navy, does that make me a Swiss Navy veteran?

johnnyzhivago May 10, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Absolutely. In fact, since Switzerland has no navy, it actually makes you an Admiral in the Swiss Navy, a commodore – and the Minister of Defense: Oceans.

So get to work, my friend, and start protecting the world's oceans for Swiss commerce. Those candies and cheeses don't deliver themselves.

doloras May 10, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Switzerland does have a Navy. They sail around on Lake Geneva.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:24 am

Maybe they can advise Wyoming on the proper use and care of fresh-water aircraft carriers.

MaxNeanderthal May 10, 2012 at 4:30 pm

A Swiss Army knife…(multitool?)

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:36 pm
Dudleydidwrong May 10, 2012 at 10:02 pm

That's what Marcus uses in place of K-Y. He's loyal to his homeland to the end.

tessiee May 10, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Marcus uses a Swiss Army knife in place of K-Y? Owie ow ow ow!

Terry May 10, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Yes, you can proudly patrol Lake Geneva and protect Switzerland from a French invasion.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:25 am

So she's a Swiss Army Wife?

metamarcisf May 10, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Oh well. That's very different. Nevermind.

Goonemeritus May 10, 2012 at 4:16 pm

A nation breaths a collective sigh of relief—- yes that nation is Switzerland.

Tundra Grifter May 10, 2012 at 4:17 pm

She flips faster than (r)Money – or faster than Ole Newt dropping his first wife.

Mahousu May 10, 2012 at 4:17 pm

She will not, however, give up her lifetime supply of Swiss Miss.

MissTaken May 10, 2012 at 4:35 pm

So Marcus is staying in the US?

elburritodeluxe May 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Pull down the fucking lederhosen and take your fucking cheese; your fucking folding knives; your fucking watches; your fucking liberal banking laws; your fucking well-run, clean cities and most of all your fucking health care system and shove them up your Swiss asses!

LettucePrey May 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I thought God hates pulling out?

BaldarTFlagass May 10, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I think that's just the Pope.

smokefilledroommate May 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Wow, that sex change was quick !

JustPixelz May 10, 2012 at 4:20 pm

She's got a lot of chootzpah to talk about her patriotism when her husband is Swish.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:22 pm

You're such a punomenon.

Eve8Apples May 10, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I'm calling bullshit. She didn't withdraw. Switzerland threatened to kick her crazy ass out if she didn't leave voluntarily.

johnnyzhivago May 10, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Birth Certificate – LONG FORM – or GTFO!

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Revocation of Citizenship Long Form or GTFO!

hagajim May 10, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Love the pic, is Shelley really Michelle Marceau?

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Wait, even if she renounces her Swiss citizenship, isn't she still an illegal alien? Shouldn't we demand that she be deported? Or at least produce a green card?

GuyClinch May 10, 2012 at 4:28 pm

She'll always be Euro-trash to me.

VaWyo May 10, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Getting dual citizenship was the only thing she's ever done that I liked.

MissTaken May 10, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Switzerland's loss is an Iowa State Fair corndog's gain.

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu,
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 4:36 pm

But who will rise to be Switzerland's President now?

anniegetyerfun May 10, 2012 at 5:27 pm

You know who ELSE had an eye trained on Switzerland and other countries in Western Europe?

NYNYNYjr May 11, 2012 at 12:52 am

Current vice-president and former Bicycle Infantry battalion commander Ueli Maurer?

Also, check out these Swiss president ladies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micheline_Calmy-Rey ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eveline_Widmer-Schlu

Guppy May 10, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Yes, how dare a sitting member of Congress hold citizenship in a democratic republic that takes personal (and canton!) rights and liberties seriously (rather than just when they're convenient) while maintaining a decidedly isolationist foreign policy!?

DaRooster May 10, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I would think God told her to become a Swissiten? Doesn't she get her orders directly from the top?

Chichikovovich May 10, 2012 at 4:41 pm

"As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran,"

But her family was apparently rotten to the Corps.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:57 pm

But wonderful to the Cavalry!

chascates May 10, 2012 at 4:45 pm

From Examiner.com:
Firmly opposed to gay marriage, she may not know that Switzerland recognizes same-sex partnerships. In a 2005 referendum, same-sex couples were granted the same rights as married couples in next of kin status, insurance, taxation, and shared possession of dwelling. In fact, it was the first nation to pass such a law by referendum," notes the Washington Post.
Further, assisted suicide has been legal in Switzerland since the 1940s, and if Bachmann does decide to live in Switzerland, the fierce opponent of ObamaCare will discover that all Swiss citizens are required to purchase basic health insurance. That's called a government mandate.

Chichikovovich May 10, 2012 at 4:52 pm

On the other hand, the place has some attractive associations for Bachmann. For example, John Calvin had Michael Servetus burned alive on a pile of Servetus's own books there, for doubting the doctrines of the Trinity and infant baptism in print.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:31 am

Sounds more like Santorum's line of work.

Dashboard Buddha May 10, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Wow…those examiner comments are priceless

not that Dewey May 10, 2012 at 4:56 pm

They've taken "irrelevantly misquoting the constitution" to a whole 'nother level.

Doktor StrangeZoom May 10, 2012 at 4:47 pm

From the Wingnut Editorial:

our Founding Fathers must have just done flip-flops in their graves.

Yes. Because none of them were ever citizens of any other country.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:32 am

Nice to know that MIttens has authoritative precedent from the Founding Fathers.

BlueStateLibel May 10, 2012 at 4:57 pm

"As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran"

Oh yeah? I'm the daughter of a Navy Veteran, niece to Air Force and Army veterans, and my great-great–great grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War. Where's my gov'ment monies like you get, Michelle?

rickmaci May 10, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Please Wonkette, can you not use that photo, it's making me and many others all coulrophobic. We don't know whether some other picture of One L will produce a different result, but we would appreciate the attempt. thank you.

vulpes82 May 10, 2012 at 5:32 pm

It's a shameful part of American history, one we should never forget, but it's just too much.

UnholyMoses May 10, 2012 at 5:09 pm

I find this thread absolutely, positively impossible to masturbate to.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:33 am

That's why you're only a probationary Wonketteer.

UnholyMoses May 11, 2012 at 10:02 am

I just hate clowns is all.

Really, really don't like them. Not one bit.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 10, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Nope sorry, the USA has a no return policy. We don't care how defective the product was when she left our country, we are NOT taking her back.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 10, 2012 at 5:13 pm

I never really got the whole scared of clowns thing before. But now I get it. I get it.

subsum May 10, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I'm so tired of reading about this woman. Where's Sarah Palin? I kinda miss her.

Snap out of it! You don't really mean that.

Nostrildamus May 10, 2012 at 5:17 pm

Sorry, no take-backs. Switzerland has to keep her now.

OneYieldRegular May 10, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Dear Representative Bachmann,

We understand that you have requested withdrawal of the coveted honor of citizenship in our great country as conferred upon you in 1978. Please consider this official notice that your Swiss citizenship has been terminated effective immediately. At your earliest convenience, please return the chocolates and hotel bath towels.

Sincerely,
Switzerland

cake_day May 10, 2012 at 5:20 pm

From the DC Examiner article-

"Less than the number of fingers on one hand seems to be approximately equal to the amount of members in our current Congress that care anything about upholding our US Constitution."

I'm bring that sentence home for the kids to diagram tonight!

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I'm wondering if Trump will send out his investigators to find Bachmann's Swiss Birth Certificate.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 11, 2012 at 2:35 am

You won't believe what they find. (At least, I know I won't.)

GOPCrusher May 10, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Somebody must of explained to Michele that Real Americans don't look kindly to people from other countries.

When it comes to citizenship, she tried hitting from both sides of the plate.

When it came to marriage, Marcus…

user-of-owls May 10, 2012 at 5:42 pm

…the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran…

The only conclusion we can draw from this is that Michelle Bachmann hates the Marines.

A Miss or Mrs. Lori Stacey writes:

Thank you [Dual Citizen Bachmann] for all your lies and phony paranoia regarding Ron Paul, a man you actually "greatly respected and admired" up until you entered the race. (see video) A man that is one of those rare members of Congress which can be counted on one hand that spent his entire career actually upholding our constitution. Thanks for smearing him so badly, gee thanks.

The Libertard is strong in this one.

There's a sad shrilly screeching
From the Tea Party crowd
As they learn that Michele's Swiss, too
And up in her office
That absurd Congressgirl
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

So long, Michele,
Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye …

Troglodeity May 10, 2012 at 6:18 pm

In fairness to her, she had no idea Marcus Bachmann was a closeted Swiss.

mrblifil May 10, 2012 at 6:42 pm

So now she's down to three holes? Pretty boring.

beowulf2100 May 10, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Perhaps this is appropriate. Her arguments are as full of holes as Swiss Cheese. I do want to know her position on the critical debate of Swiss Chocolate vs Belgian Chocolate.
But isn't she one of the main folks always making fun of European socialist ideas, that old time stuff that opposes American Exceptionalism.

glamourdammerung May 10, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Is she trying to become more like Palin by quitting?

Butch_Wagstaff May 10, 2012 at 7:01 pm

That pic? That's actually Michele WITHOUT makeup.

Redgyal May 10, 2012 at 7:25 pm

In the news today…dog eats own vomit.

snickersnack May 10, 2012 at 10:23 pm

I would cut that bitch for Swiss citizenship.

tessiee May 10, 2012 at 10:44 pm

So…
Michele quit the US for Switzerland, and now she's quit quitting?
Help me out, here, guys:
Is this good news or bad news for She Who Must not Be Named?

unclrobot May 10, 2012 at 10:52 pm

can i have it if she's not using it

aussiefromafar May 11, 2012 at 1:05 am

Gawd…she looks terrible without her makeup in that photo.

MilwaukeeKent May 11, 2012 at 1:13 am

Sorry, Michele. Once you go Swiss, you can't remiss.

Negropolis May 11, 2012 at 1:32 am

Yes, but what kind of pie?

BTW, this is hilarious. She didn't even actively seek Swiss citizenship, but she feels the need to tell them to fuck off because of her crazy-assed fans. She probably withdrew her citizenship because Swiss sounds too close to Swish.

Just give me my God, Gold and that family heirloom musket (which must be kept locked up in town). Not to mention Cuckoo Clocks & Cheese. You can keep your Change.– Teatard bumpersticker in Swisserland

fctimes May 11, 2012 at 9:45 am

I never knew you could get Swiss citizenship for marrying a homosexual. No wonder so many conservatives are against gay marriage.

outragedcitizen May 11, 2012 at 3:54 pm

It is sooooo wonderful when the wingnuts eat one of their own!

BZ1 May 11, 2012 at 5:22 pm

who.cares?

joeytranchina May 11, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Only a fool would give up a Swiss passport to pacify a few idiotic American voters.

You can safely go anywhere in the world on a Swiss passport, not that MB is going anywhere, with here husband who is already passing.

Is Marcus going to give up his US passport?

gregpphoto May 14, 2012 at 1:23 am

Repeat: I'm so awesomely American that it only took me 34 years to rescind this."

JimNauseam May 15, 2012 at 1:27 am

I'm confused, is Switzerland part of the Soviet Union?

SorosBot May 10, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I'm uncertain about his principles.

rickmaci May 10, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Hard to argue with that when dealing with Ol' Crazy Eyes.

rickmaci May 10, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Of course, that may also depend on whether "moral uncertainty" is the same as "bat shit crazy out of her f* ing mind."

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:34 pm

We should ask Schroedinger's Cat.

HistoriCat May 10, 2012 at 4:40 pm

The cat's in the box. He might be dead. On the other hand, he might just be pissed off about being stuck in that box.

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Absolutist!!

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Or not. I can't be sure.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Maybe we should check?

Fare la Volpe May 10, 2012 at 5:03 pm

It's not our place to decide.

actor212 May 10, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Agreed.

I think.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 10, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Perhaps we should agree to disagree?

vulpes82 May 10, 2012 at 5:28 pm

You're becoming decoherent.
