FURRY CELEBRITIES  6:09 pm June 11, 2012

And Here Is a Photo of Michele Bachmann Disguised As a Pig

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

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?

nounverb911 June 11, 2012 at 6:17 pm

And carrying a hockey stick?

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:11 pm

She was pucking around. Does that count?

Barb June 11, 2012 at 6:12 pm

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

ProgressiveInga June 11, 2012 at 7:46 pm

No. Not even. Never. No.

That's all I got.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:11 pm

When he develops some.

Chet Kincaid June 11, 2012 at 6:14 pm

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.

BaldarTFlagass June 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

"'Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Kill the pig! Bash him in!'"

Angry_Marmot June 11, 2012 at 6:58 pm

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

WhatTheHeck June 11, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Lord of the Flies libel.

iburl June 11, 2012 at 7:39 pm

This bath salts shit is getting crazy.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Oh, NOES!! BACONZ??

Anybody seen Baconz?

nounverb911 June 11, 2012 at 6:14 pm

She looks normal.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:13 pm

No, she doesn't.

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

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 10:26 pm

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

Chill_Bill June 11, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Is this what happens when you presidential campaign fails?

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:13 pm

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

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 8:57 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 11:18 pm

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

nounverb911 June 11, 2012 at 6:16 pm

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

Tommmcattt June 11, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Swine Libel!

nounverb911 June 11, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Does the pig represent the Bachmannn family farm subsidies?

owhatever June 11, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I'm With Stupid.

Chill_Bill June 11, 2012 at 6:17 pm

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

Also, where's the pig?

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 7:58 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:18 pm

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.

weejee June 11, 2012 at 6:18 pm

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

sharethegrief June 11, 2012 at 6:24 pm

No! That's Donald Trump's sister.

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm

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

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

See, this is what happens when you get vaccinated.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:15 pm

ZOMG, cue HuffPoo "expose" in 3 … 2 …

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 9:01 pm

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

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 10:03 pm

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.

SexySmurf June 11, 2012 at 6:21 pm

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

Joshua Norton June 11, 2012 at 6:21 pm

You are watching psychosis on parade.

Needz moar John Phillips Sousa.

Serolf_Divad June 11, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I'm thinking John Williams: Imperial March.

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 8:01 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I'm thinking John Maus.

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 10:14 pm

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.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 11:13 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:22 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Baconz GOOD. (wipes tear)

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 11, 2012 at 9:19 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 9:43 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:23 pm

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

Callyson June 11, 2012 at 6:50 pm

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

ttommyunger June 11, 2012 at 6:57 pm

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

valthemus June 11, 2012 at 7:26 pm

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

ttommyunger June 11, 2012 at 8:04 pm

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

Tundra Grifter June 11, 2012 at 6:25 pm

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.

weejee June 11, 2012 at 6:30 pm

She's pulling the tractor behind her.

OldWhiteLies June 11, 2012 at 6:48 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:26 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:28 pm

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

Serolf_Divad June 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Especially when it's the lunatics running the asylum.

Not_So_Much June 11, 2012 at 6:28 pm

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

weejee June 11, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Miss Piggy weeps.

johnnyzhivago June 11, 2012 at 6:31 pm

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

Guppy June 11, 2012 at 7:13 pm

ONE-L LIBEL!

gullywompr June 11, 2012 at 6:32 pm

That's a disguise?

BarackMyWorld June 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

MICHELE BACHMANN IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE HOWDY DOODY CIRCUS ARMY.

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:21 pm

She ran, but lost.

BarackMyWorld June 11, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Obviously losing to incumbent Peter Campbell.

MittBorg June 12, 2012 at 12:45 am

Deservedly.

Schmannnity June 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

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

extreme_left June 11, 2012 at 6:35 pm

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

OldWhiteLies June 11, 2012 at 7:13 pm

The pig or shelly?

extreme_left June 12, 2012 at 2:06 am

.. it's just different camera angles.

GortRay June 11, 2012 at 6:35 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:18 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Correction: Minnesota (as if it matters)

rickmaci June 11, 2012 at 6:36 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:41 pm

They hung that dude upside down in the town square…

TootsStansbury June 11, 2012 at 6:59 pm

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

sullivanst June 11, 2012 at 7:06 pm

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

sullivanst June 11, 2012 at 7:06 pm

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

Fred_Wertham_Jr June 11, 2012 at 7:38 pm

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

mavenmaven June 11, 2012 at 6:42 pm

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

coolhandnuke June 11, 2012 at 6:43 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:47 pm

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

coolhandnuke June 11, 2012 at 7:31 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:21 pm

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

chascates June 11, 2012 at 6:44 pm

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

sullivanst June 11, 2012 at 7:10 pm

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

Callyson June 11, 2012 at 6:46 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 6:47 pm

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

Arken June 11, 2012 at 6:47 pm

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

Sassomatic June 11, 2012 at 6:48 pm

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

scvirginia June 11, 2012 at 8:07 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 10:35 pm

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!"

Mumbletypeg June 11, 2012 at 6:49 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:02 pm

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

Mumbletypeg June 11, 2012 at 7:46 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Pigmalion? Very nice!

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:24 pm

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

DerrickWildcat June 11, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Miss Minnesota cheers on her hometown!

RedneckMuslin June 11, 2012 at 6:57 pm

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

mwittier June 11, 2012 at 7:02 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:04 pm

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

ifthethunderdontgetya June 11, 2012 at 7:11 pm

What?

I thought we were promised One L's retirement.

Fucking WaPo.
~

bobbert June 11, 2012 at 11:03 pm

It turns out, she lied. Who woulda thunk?

Rotundo_ June 11, 2012 at 7:16 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Bachmann / Lord of the Flies 2016!!!!

Serolf_Divad June 11, 2012 at 7:47 pm

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

PhilippePetain June 11, 2012 at 7:28 pm

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

Generation[redacted] June 11, 2012 at 7:41 pm

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

coolhandnuke June 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Worst "Babe" sequel ever.

Fred_Wertham_Jr June 11, 2012 at 7:47 pm

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

lochnessmonster June 11, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Oh my goodness!

valthemus June 11, 2012 at 7:53 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 7:53 pm

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

Limeylizzie June 11, 2012 at 8:05 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 8:41 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 11:17 pm

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

Negropolis June 12, 2012 at 1:56 am

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

MittBorg June 12, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Professional courtesy?

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 8:52 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 9:05 pm

It's on Crooks and Liars, from yesterday. http://crooksandliars.com/karoli/micheles-mendaci

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 9:35 pm

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 June 11, 2012 at 8:05 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 8:10 pm

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

Butch_Wagstaff June 11, 2012 at 10:28 pm

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 11:11 pm

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 June 12, 2012 at 1:46 am

"Some Pig"

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

DahBoner June 12, 2012 at 6:04 am

Why is that pig walking?

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

redarmybarbie June 12, 2012 at 6:15 am

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

comrad_darkness June 12, 2012 at 10:35 am

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

MittBorg June 11, 2012 at 11:15 pm

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.
