This is your Monday Fun Post picture of famous nut Michele Bachmann dressed in some kind of furry costume whilst campaigning for reelection in Hugo, Minnesota this weekend. That’s nice. Is this because Michele Bachmann loves pork barrel spending on the pork industry, in her home state? So meta! Or maybe she is simply having a bad hair day? Ugh, your Wonkette is being sexist. Or you tell us what is happening. Caption contest!

Oh, we are just kidding. Michele Bachmann went as a human, according to some other photo she posted to her Facebook page. See look, there she is, doing a heil Hitler:

Ha ha and your Wonkette noticed that the red car and the blond lady in this photo look exactly like the red car and the blond lady from some old photo called “Michele-bachmann-hugo-parade1” in the Wonkette archives, which means maybe these photos that Michele Bachmann posted to her own Facebook page on Saturday are just photos from two years ago, who knows even.

That is what “looking through the wormhole” feels like. [Facebook]

    Was she wearing lipstick?

  • Barb

    When does Marcus get to march in his gay pride parade in assless chaps?

  • No, no, that pig is The People's sacrifice to Michele Bachmann. She will rend the bacon from it with her teeth and smear its blood on her face as a beauty treatment. Every town in her district must deliver either a pig to Michele or a teenaged son to Marcus, as a symbol of the "pork" they desire in the coming Congressional term.

        Sadly, we're the ones being chased off a cliff.

      • WhatTheHeck

        Lord of the Flies libel.

    • This bath salts shit is getting crazy.

    • Oh, NOES!! BACONZ??

      Anybody seen Baconz?

  • nounverb911

    She looks normal.

    • No, she doesn't.

      Unless, of course, your definition of "normal" = stark raving batshit insane.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        That look is totally normal on the planet (of which she rules) that's in her head.

  • Is this what happens when you presidential campaign fails?

    • I don't think Michele gets to blame anyone for her little chirping cuckoo-birdies.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      Who cares about the Presidency of the U.S. Michele was the President of this awesome tractor parade!

      • The US is a country that Michele knows about like America also!

  • nounverb911

    The wormhole version of Michele looks like a fat wrinkled Orly Taintz.

  • Tommmcattt

    Swine Libel!

  • nounverb911

    Does the pig represent the Bachmannn family farm subsidies?

  • owhatever

    I'm With Stupid.

  • Nothing says "white trash retirement dream" like a red Chrysler Sebring convertible.

    Also, where's the pig?

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      I know. It's so confusing. I can't spot the pig. Seems to be more than one & they're all carryin' flags. Or is it driving the tractor instead?

  • fartknocker

    I sure hope Farmer Brown enjoyed driving his tractor in the parade since I'm pretty sure some of my tax dollars were given to him in the form of a big, fat agriculture subsidy.

  • Is the one with the blond wig in the last photog Lindsey Graham wearing a push-up?

    • sharethegrief

      No! That's Donald Trump's sister.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Pfft. That's one of his ex-wives.

    See, this is what happens when you get vaccinated.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        When asked to comment Jenny McCarthy said: "Michele who?"

        • You saying Michele has lost cachet, or gravitas, or whatever it takes to ensure some attention from our jaded media?

          • Butch_Wagstaff

            I meant that I think Jenny "I-Did-Some-Google-Searches-About-Autism-So-I'm-Now-An-Expert-About-It" McCarthy is clueless about most things.
            And politics? Pfft. She's probably pays more attention to how her hair looks during a photo shoot.

          • This is a woman who speaks in monosyllabi. How could she possibly read, much less understand, a medical paper?

            I'd like to spank her sore for her miseducation of the *other* stupid boobs around her, though. Several children have died because their stupid parents listened to her.

  • SexySmurf

    Looks like she changed her name to Michele Is that to appeal to the kids these days or has she finally gone the full Basil Marceaux?

  • You are watching psychosis on parade.

    Needz moar John Phillips Sousa.

    • Serolf_Divad

      I'm thinking John Williams: Imperial March.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        John Williams? That's too sophistamucated for 'em.

    • I'm thinking John Maus.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        My partner and I share the same idea of preventative measures for such people.
        In his case, it's music.
        In my case, it's writing.
        Still the same for both, though: Break their fingers before they get to the keyboard.

        • What? And deprive the world of an opportunity to drink from the fount of their genius!!!

          Have you gone mad, man, to suggest such a thing?

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Pig looks better, and is probably smarter and tastier as well.

    • Baconz GOOD. (wipes tear)

      • BigSkullF*ckingDog

        I was going to say "pig libel!" but that seemed too obvious.

        • I know I have a rich fantasy life, but I can't help worrying about the little piglet when I think about Mish-Mash tearing pigs apart with her teefs.

  • ttommyunger

    AND HERE IS A PHOTO OF MICHELE BACHMANN DISGUISED AS A PIG. "Oh really? You will be hearing from my attorneys." – Porky Pig.

    • Callyson

      Miss Piggy is on line one and wants to discuss bringing a class action lawsuit.

      • ttommyunger

        Indeed! Contact the firm of Dewey, Phukem and Howe.

        • Not not the law firm of Huey, Dewey, and Louie? Are they too expensive?

          • ttommyunger

            Sadly, they are on permanent retainer status by “The Donald”.

  • Tundra Grifter

    I don't know about the pig, but that woman in the blue t-shirt and WideLoad jeans looks like she could move her own piano.

    • She's pulling the tractor behind her.

      • OldWhiteLies

        Yup – and look at the guy in the tractor in the second pic. He's looking down wondering how come the brake pedal is to the floor and still not working.

  • CivicHoliday

    How many bottles of bleach did it take to make that lady's hair look that way? Either that or she is a wheat farmer and just glued the leftovers on her head.

  • randcoolcatdaddy

    I'm sorry, I can't make fun of Bachmann supporters. Mental illness is a serious issue.

    • Serolf_Divad

      Especially when it's the lunatics running the asylum.

  • Not_So_Much

    I'll be Miss Marcus has looked through a few wormholes in his time.

  • Miss Piggy weeps.

  • Michelle has really let herself go after the election!!!

    • Guppy

      ONE-L LIBEL!

  • gullywompr

    That's a disguise?

  • BarackMyWorld


    • She ran, but lost.

      • BarackMyWorld

        Obviously losing to incumbent Peter Campbell.

  • Schmannnity

    Pigs are so smart! They can even carry a flag.

  • extreme_left

    good to see she is getting some sunshine and fresh air.

    • OldWhiteLies

      The pig or shelly?

      • extreme_left

        .. it's just different camera angles.

  • GortRay

    I think the woman(?) in the front seat is Queen Of All Pigs which is a requirement of the Wisconsin state constitution. Later, she will give the mayor a "cheez job" on the Town Hall lawn.

    • GhostBuggy

      Does that make Marcus the Sunhero?

      I bet nobody here is a weird pervert like me and understands this! Or you all are and do. One of those two choices.

    • GortRay

      Correction: Minnesota (as if it matters)

  • rickmaci

    I kinda like OneL giving the Nazi salute to the voters while riding in an open top car. Makes one nostalgic for the good old days of train-on-time-government-business as one Fascism, back before Hitler went all murdery on people.

    • mavenmaven

      They hung that dude upside down in the town square…

    • TootsStansbury

      Feh. We won't even have trains, let alone on-time ones.

      • sullivanst

        It's OK, Musso never really made the trains run on time anyway.

    • sullivanst

      Has to be said though, that's probably the laziest "Sieg Heil" ever.

    • At least Hitler had enough class to sieg-heil from a Mercedes.

  • mavenmaven

    I guess Bachmann is not trying to reach out to the disaffected Jewish Obama voters.

  • coolhandnuke

    If the photo showed Ol' Crazy Eyes riding with her top off instead of the top off….I'd projectile vomit my pork skins lunch.

    • Callyson

      Aaaand there go any latent lesbian tendencies I may have ever had in this lifetime, or in the next several lifetimes…

      • coolhandnuke

        As a practicing flaming hetero, my girlfriend gussies up (once a month) in her finest Jonah Goldberg facial hair and Tucker Carlson bow-tied garb to curb me from jumping ship.

    • Angry_Marmot

      You see now, coolhand, this is why we can't have nice things.

  • chascates

    The pig would make a better legislator than Bachmann does. Hell, the tractor in the background would!

    • sullivanst

      Michele Bachmann: Neither strong like bull, nor smart like tractor.

  • Callyson

    Now, now, it's not nice to make fun. Clearly, Shelly is headed to the doctor, who has kindly agreed to accept the pig as payment since all the chickens ran away from Crazy Eyes the first chance they got…

  • Mittens Howell, III

    Marcus: "This is not my beautiful wife, this is not my beautiful parade."

  • Arken

    You can put a pig on a pig but lipstick… something….

  • Sassomatic

    Why did she post a picture of herself driving by a homeless encampment?

    • scvirginia

      Am guessing either a) she wanted to prove she isn't out of touch with the commoners or b) she is out of touch with the commoners.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Michele: "Hey guys! How ya doin'? You have me to thank for the loss of your house! I'm just a humble public servant & just do what I can. Thank you for your support! Marcus wants to know what you're willing to do for 20 bucks because he believes in creatin' jobs unlike President Obama!"

  • Tractors in the background and farm animals dolled up, as with the state fair, to represent a sleeker but somewhat misleading image for the baffled yet adoring public. It's Pigmalion re-told in reverse, with the subject growing more base and unrefined and clueless with each passing day rather than the opposite..

    • coolhandnuke

      Well done sir.
      Might I add a Hugoesque amalgam of Animal Farm and My Fair Lady.

      • My Fair Lady

        Thank you and because I am a lady (though perhaps not *so* demure as to satisfy Henry Higgins' standards) – – whose mother in her youth was often compared to Hepburn (I didn't inherit that look exactly — but, watching the film for the first time as kids, seeing "Mom" onscreen sort of freaked us out) — I extend my gloved hand and attempt an Audrey-worthy stated, "Hooooow doyoudo?"

    • scvirginia

      Pigmalion? Very nice!

    • Well done, indeed! Doubtless CRE_ature will be by with your award.

  • Miss Minnesota cheers on her hometown!

  • RedneckMuslin

    "Do you take your pig everywhere you go?"
    "No, I don't "
    " I was talking to the pig"

  • mwittier

    From her perch atop the convertible's seats (where she is having none of that "nanny state" seatbelt safety) Michelle is daintily (and a bit forcefully) holding an aspirin between her knees, lest the male gaze of the driver impregnate her.

    Check it out: he's attempting to melt that aspirin by reflecting his eye-lasers in the rear view mirror, much to Michelle's apparent annoyance. Meanwhile his wife, Kristin Wiig character #37, is utterly oblivious.

    No man has laid eyes upon that clamped-down coin purse in decades. That aspirin is fused.

  • Nostrildamus

    Michele "looks through the wormhole" whenever she dons a strap-on for Marcus.

  • What?

    I thought we were promised One L's retirement.

    Fucking WaPo.

    • bobbert

      It turns out, she lied. Who woulda thunk?

  • Rotundo_

    Now looking at this, I had thought it was the beginning of a parade of barnyard animals with more intelligence and compassion than Michele. Leading off with cattle, horses, pigs and working your way down to flies and parasites. Last one in the parade just has a couple of petri dishes with coliform bacteria in them.

  • Doktor Zoom

    Bachmann / Lord of the Flies 2016!!!!

    • Serolf_Divad

      Who gave Bachmann the conch shell? We're fucked, now, aren't we?

  • PhilippePetain

    I can't tell if it's the same setting…the trees are just the right height, though.

  • Generation[redacted]

    That'll do, pig. That'll do.

  • coolhandnuke

    Worst "Babe" sequel ever.

  • Pictures like these make me realize that I'm not entirely opposed to genocide against my own race.

  • lochnessmonster

    Oh my goodness!

  • If this is the "real America" Karl Rove and his little friends keep talking about, they are welcome to it. I'll take fake America with its infinitely more picturesque gay pride parades.

  • Callyson

    Dammit, there's a "when pigs can fly" joke in here somewhere…

  • Limeylizzie

    I was reading somewhere on the interwebs, that Michele "Bacon" Bachmann was probably the leaker ( eww sorry about that) of classified thingies as she is on the Intelligence Committee, I really hope that is true.

    • TribecaMike

      Call me old skool, but I just think there's something unseemly about a woman being hanged for treason.

      • I would settle for "being ripped apart by honey badgers for treason." Also piranha. Wolves. Endangered African dogs, for that matter.

        • Negropolis

          Why not pigs? Hogs are some vicious beats, especially the wild ones.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      Huh? Wha?
      Wish you could post some links about about that.
      What were these "classified thingies"? Were they about how Obama is really a Muslim Martian or sumthin'?

      • Limeylizzie

        It's on Crooks and Liars, from yesterday.

        • Butch_Wagstaff

          Ah. Thanks for the linky.
          But you know these leaks are perfectly okay because haven't you noticed that the President is one of them black persons & none of them weren't to be President because Jesus was white!

          It's OT but I know you & I share a mutual disdain of Bob McDonnell. I probably should have posted this comment about him on the Walker recall election thread. But I'm gonna post it here anyhoo:
          Bob McDonnell is just as corrupt as Scott Walker. The only difference between him and Walker is that McDonnell is savvy enough not to let his connections to his wealthy sugar daddies show.
          EDIT: I started to go on a longer rant but I prefer to keep my comments as short as possible. So I simplify my opinion of him: He's a dick & loves licking the ass of such people like Pat Robertson while giving the finger to poorest people in the state.

  • NYNYNYjr

    Caption: Circe responds to Bachmann's recent comments on Greek austerity.

  • If that's Mish in the bottom pic (so to speak, heh), she's had a fucking buttload of face surgery.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      Bristol Palin would tell you that One "L" Michele is STILL copying her mama.

      • I think about that, periodically. If John McCain hadn't forced that half-assed dumbass down our collective throat, we would not have been treated to the ensuing boatload of clowns — Christine O'Don'tDoIt, Nikki Hatey, Michele BatShitKrayKray. So, yeah, Bristle might just be correct, yaknow?

  • Negropolis

    "Some Pig"

    That is totally unfair. Michele Bachmann looks too much like a mouse about the face to be a prized pig.

  • DahBoner

    Why is that pig walking?

    I thought Republican pigs only flew on private jets or on Southwest?

  • redarmybarbie

    Kirsten, I am offended! That pig has done NOTHING to be compared to a screeching death-hag like Michelle Bachmann!

  • comrad_darkness

    The woman with the flag has gotten out of her scooter. There IS hope for this country!
