John Boehner Also Won’t Defend Michele Bachmann For Randomly Accusing Top Officials of Terrorism

by Jim Newell

As usual, all your Wonkette had to do was demand accountability in a single post and boom, there it is: accountability. It’s not such a bad gig, being the most powerful blog in the universe. (We would imagine.) Isn’t it a delight to see everyone finally condemn Michele Bachmann for smearing Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, instead of simply laughing this off as one more thing? You’ve got your Walnuts, Ed Rollins, Marco Rubio, some other folks, and now John Boehner, who said today: “I don’t know Huma. But from everything that I do know of her, she has a sterling character, and I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.” You know what else would be pretty dangerous, Boehner? Huma Abedin plotting another 9/11, right now, with Egypt and her husband, Mr. Penis.

Boehner did stop short of saying she would have to leave her post on the Intelligence Committee, though, which she obviously should. The easiest way to achieve that going forward would be to vote her out of Congress for being stupid and cruel.

Did you see Bachmann running away from CNN’s Dana Bash yesterday? You should see it. Look at her go! Ha ha ha:

If you’re going to criticize Huma Abedin, at least settle on a story with some evidence, like how she is Hillary Clinton’s lesbian lover.

It's the ones you never suspect of being a terrorist who we have the most to be worried about!

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Yeah, like my next door neighbor's baby crying at night isn't part of a greater plot. That's why I keep my web cam trained on them at all time, and keep sending the feed to Homeland Security. If we don't report on each other, we will lose our freedom!

worrytron July 19, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Hey man, the gubmint can see your webcam cause of the power meters. Just thought i'd warn you.

Antispandex July 19, 2012 at 4:55 pm

"It's the ones you never suspect of being a terrorist, or a lesbian, who we have the most to be worried about!"

Fixed

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Damn, didn't think of that, I need to get another web cam.

EatsBabyDingos July 19, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Fare la Volpe July 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm

He does look fetching in pigtails.

johnnyzhivago July 19, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Sarah Palin is confused because she thought Egypt was ruled by the Pharaohs, not the Muslim Brotherhood.

Pyramid libel!

Generation[redacted] July 19, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Pyramid Ale Libel!

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:52 pm

But can she see pyramids from her back yard? (Assuming she is not smoking meth).

johnnyzhivago July 19, 2012 at 6:11 pm

She sees King Tut rising in the clouds!!!

gullywompr July 19, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Which one, North Egypt or South Egypt?

GunToting[Redacted] July 19, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Sam Sham libel!

noodlesalad July 19, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Vote her out of congress for being cruel and stupid? Aren't those the first two items on the check list, right before "obscenely wealthy" and "suffering from at least one debilitating addiction?"

starfanglednut July 19, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Adulterous and in the closet helps too.

DrunkIrishman July 19, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Did he cry?

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Does he stop?

He's saving his tears for November.

BaldarTFlagass July 19, 2012 at 4:29 pm

That accompanying woman there could eat beans off the top of my head and fart in my face.

Geminisunmars July 19, 2012 at 4:36 pm

How much do you charge for that?

actor212 July 19, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Charge? Hell, I'd pay for that.

Jus_Wonderin July 19, 2012 at 5:00 pm

BYOB

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:53 pm

We've all been tempted by the eating beans off the top of Baldar's head and farting in his face job. Sometimes, you just have to say no.

gullywompr July 19, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Fine, I'll put away my spoon…

FakaktaSouth July 19, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Is it a rule that you must be functionally illiterate to be this guy? why can't he ever have "seen the letter" or "read the bill" or "not be a huge question ducking dickbag?"

Also, Boehner on Bachmann, worst porn ever, especially if it was Marcus. Too many jowls everywhere.

GhostBuggy July 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Just think of the noise those jowels would make, slappin' all around.

prommie July 19, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Deputy Dawg.

FakaktaSouth July 19, 2012 at 4:55 pm

truly the worst doggy-style ever.

Antispandex July 19, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Good question! I always wondered why no one ever saw the statement, or knew the person (or knew them "that well"), has the slightest idea what they are being asked, but feels it's still OK to comment on it. What's up with that?

el_donaldo July 19, 2012 at 4:29 pm

It's been pretty awesome watching the party that enabled her crazy bullshit all these years suddenly turn on her.

But I won't be happy until Bachmann, Goehmert, and Steve King are forced to fight lions gladiator-style in the pit of the House to retain their seats.

actor212 July 19, 2012 at 4:42 pm
el_donaldo July 19, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I admit a total psychological freak-out is more plausible and increasingly likely, but I'm holding out for mauled by massive predator. I'll settle for a shark tank.

actor212 July 20, 2012 at 8:42 am

What did a shark ever do to you? Beautiful creatures.

No, I think poetic justice demands either a gaggle of rabid geese or a few wild boar.

IncenseDebate July 19, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Well, she does walk like an Egyptian.

BaldarTFlagass July 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Great, now I'm going to be whistling all fucking afternoon.

WhatTheHolyHeck July 19, 2012 at 5:59 pm

That was surprisingly composed; I'd expected her to be waving her hands over her head, screaming about the lesbian attacking her.

Mittens Howell, III July 19, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Michele Bachmann plus Intelligence Committee = *brain explosion*

EatsBabyDingos July 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Politics is like sausage, and I believe we have found the ground rat testicles to prove it.

Dammit, Ex, close your parentheses! You'll let out the cat!

kittensdontlie July 20, 2012 at 11:59 am

"Who's there?"
"Boehner who?"
"Boehner Bachmann, both are insidiously poisonous."

Chill_Bill July 19, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Now wouldn't it be awesome if Bachmann didn't get reelected?

fartknocker July 19, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Michele was on her way to watch reruns of Bristol Palin – she's so excited about that role model.

BaldarTFlagass July 19, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Dana should consider getting some cosmetic surgery to try and reduce her resemblance to Ann Coulter.

Geminisunmars July 19, 2012 at 4:42 pm

That is just plain mean.

didgen July 19, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Not looking like Ann Coulter is why I'm glad to be a chunky gray/brown haired grandma.

starfanglednut July 19, 2012 at 7:07 pm

You sound adorable.

Fred_Wertham_Jr July 19, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Dana Bash is just weird looking. And she's married to John King, who looks like he got hit in the face with a shovel or, perhaps, kicked by a mule in his youth. Adopting kids is really cool, you two.

Self-Uploader July 19, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Given all the people trying to protect Abedin from both sides of the aisle, it's obvious that Bachmann is on to something and the infiltration is even deeper than any of us could have imagined.

Blueb4sunrise July 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Yes, we need to encourage her . Maybe Sheriff Arpaio will form a posse.

Callyson July 19, 2012 at 4:55 pm

With funding from Donald Trump.

Fare la Volpe July 19, 2012 at 5:01 pm

They can use Dale Gribble's van.

chascates July 19, 2012 at 4:33 pm

If Bachmann tries to cash a check on the Hill someone else should probably have to co-sign it, just in case. And no access to sharp things like letter openers or scissors.

rickmaci July 19, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Damn. Wasted opportunity to get a great shot of Dana Bash wearing a knockout summer dress and walking fast in heels because the freaking camera is focused on the troll woman with the bad hair and batshitcrazy eyes who is trying to go back into her hidey hole in the stairway shaft.

Mittens Howell, III July 19, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Warning Orange Man and your Comrade friends: Michele Bachmann has all of yours name on her Secrets Intellemagence Book!!!!!

MOG2410 July 19, 2012 at 4:39 pm

I'm confused, is her intellemagence a secret? Or is it the book?

bikerlaureate July 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Why does the Boehner hate America? Is he one of the commies Allen West was talking about?

jakegittes July 19, 2012 at 4:33 pm

"Would you consider recommending that she be committed to a state mental institution? Congressman Bachmann?"

"I don't know that that's related."

The hell it ain't.

OneYieldRegular July 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Michelle was moving faster than Barnabus Collins. What, was the sun about to come up?

StealthMuslin July 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

If you think Michele Bachmann can walk fast in heels you should see her husband.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:55 pm

WIN of the day!

starfanglednut July 19, 2012 at 7:08 pm

And his ass wiggles better too.

edgydrifter July 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Huma Abedin, sexual terrorist. OK, now we're getting somewhere. I sense Cinemax script potential here.

Crank_Tango July 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

And thus the conspiracy grows greater every day.

mavenmaven July 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Yes, because once the right wingers start accusing off-white people of being treasonous, they might start coming after the orange folks as well…

Mittens Howell, III July 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Someone grew some balls in the tanning booth.

Geminisunmars July 19, 2012 at 4:39 pm

They are free with every 5th tanning session. Or bottle.

actor212 July 19, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Huma Abedin conspired to tweet Wiener's weiner so to get another pro-Israel voice out of Congress.

EdFlintstone July 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

There's as much of a chance of the muslim brotherhood penetrating the state department as Marcus Bachmann penetrating Michele's snatch.

Mumbletypeg July 19, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Good to see you, Ed~

EdFlintstone July 19, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Thanks I've been in wonkette semi-retirement, I haven't really posted much in the past year, though I still lurk.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Unfair comparison, as Michele's snatch has been closed for business for over three decades.

Butch_Wagstaff July 19, 2012 at 5:44 pm

And that's clearly Obama's fault somehow.

Dashboard Buddha July 19, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Win

Mumbletypeg July 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

If you’re going to criticize Huma Abedin, at least settle on a story with some evidence

Today we are all Humanists.

sorry… I'll just be right over here..

Billmatic July 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Is Dana Bash CNN's token ugly person or something?

Puffperney July 19, 2012 at 11:38 pm

No, not on CNN. If she were on fox, that would make her the token ugly (female) person.

SexySmurf July 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

OT: Mittens just blew any chance I might vote for him.

(Sorry for the link to the Tuckington Post).

edgydrifter July 19, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Romney isn't against porn. He's against people getting free porn online. Paying for porn, say maybe in a room at the Marriott, is perfectly acceptable.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 5:11 pm

We are talking Republicans, and we have found the one of the areas where they side with big government over the job creators:

Just a few federal inquests, said Trueman, would likely frighten most companies — such as hotels and cable providers — into completely disassociating themselves from porn.

What would be the use of being a business traveler if you can't spend $12.99 for a few minutes of Spank-o-vision? The entire economy will grind to a halt!

SorosBot July 19, 2012 at 4:50 pm

You mean there was a chance you would vote for him before?

SexySmurf July 19, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I might become a billionaire in the next four months. You never know.

Geminisunmars July 19, 2012 at 4:53 pm

It wasn't very kind of you to post that link here. Think of the panic you've induced in three-quarters of the wonketteers.

Callyson July 19, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Trueman, the president of Morality in Media, contacted the Romney campaign earlier this year about the “untreated pandemic” of Internet pornography.

What, they can't use the cream for that pandemic? Works immediately…

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 4:58 pm

But think of the job creators that would be hurt by this.

First they came for my porn . . .

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 5:09 pm

From Tucker's wet dream:

Trueman said he would like for Romney to speak publicly about cracking down on porn, but believes Romney avoids the subject because he “saw that Rick Santorum got beat up in the mainstream press for being so forthright.”

Anybody know when the word "forthright" became a synonym for "batshit crazy prude"?

“With respect to Romney, I believe him,” said Trueman, “but I’d like to make sure he means it.”

Even if Romney doesn't mean it, in two weeks, he will change his position and mean it then.

Trueman said convictions for distributing porn that displays group sex, simulated rape, incest, psuedo child porn, violence or unusual fetishes — such as “scat” porn — are relatively easy. But, he said, “unless it’s just waist-up nudity of women’s breasts it probably can be found obscene somewhere in the country.”

Yes, we all want to be held to the moral standards of some small town in Utah. That is what this country is all about! But what kind of pervert is this guy anyway, if he knows about all that porn, and still wants to protect his waist up breast fetish.

EdFlintstone July 19, 2012 at 5:18 pm

You can take my porn when you pry something from my cold, dead hand.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 5:32 pm

And by something, I mean my penis.

SmutBoffin July 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

I have here in my hand a list of 10 35 uh 50 Wonkett commenters who are in fact seckrit Romneys! They have coworkers who have relatives who have friends who have once touched a $100 bill.

actor212 July 19, 2012 at 4:49 pm

You people!

SorosBot July 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

You know you're crazy when even a man as drunk as Boehner can see that you're nuts.

anniegetyerfun July 19, 2012 at 4:39 pm

This must be a real shock for her, that more than one person is finally calling her on her complete and utter bullshit. It's taken far too long for anyone to say "Enough, you goddamn cunt."

Nostrildamus July 19, 2012 at 5:26 pm

It's so hard to get good help.

fuflans July 19, 2012 at 11:34 pm

god. i would pa.y money to be able to say that to her face

YasserArraFeck July 19, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Ah crap – the closing picture mosaic has the half-eaten guy. I've managed to avoid that up to now. I don't need that sort of crap in my head.

SoBeach July 19, 2012 at 4:41 pm

I'm just trying figure out why this is the thing that finally got republicans to say "whoa…hold on a minute…"

All they've done is smirk and giggle about the disrespect, lies, and slander aimed at the president and those around him. Now all of a sudden it's not okay?

Best explanation I've seen is what someone else here posted on a different thread: The target is a hot woman. If she were anything else it'd be business as usual.

anniegetyerfun July 19, 2012 at 4:56 pm

My guess is that Hillary has been doing some behind-the-scenes knee-capping. I might be alone in not finding Huma to be particularly hot, but I can't be alone in believing that Hillary has less tolerance for this bullshit than Obama.

Self-Uploader July 19, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Agree, when this actually led to actual shit happening, including tomato and shoe throwing by Egyptian Christians who felt betrayed, I'm sure Hilary was pretty pissed off.

deanbooth July 19, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Harming one official's career is a tragedy; harming 30 million uninsured is a statistic.

Puffperney July 19, 2012 at 11:42 pm

Maybe McCain, Boehner & co. realize that many of the swing voters in the upcoming are educated and may even know what "McCarthey – ism" is and they don't want to lose their votes?

Nah, too rational.

Callyson July 19, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Wish CNN had had a close up shot, so I could see the fear in Crazy Eyes' eyes…

Jus_Wonderin July 19, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Rubirosa was on "The Diane Rehm Show" today. He was not about to answer the question asked. Would he publicly criticize Bachmann for her attacks on Huma Abedin? He mumbled something typical.

So, has he changed his mind in a little over 6 hours?

Generation[redacted] July 19, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Yeah, making dangerous accusations involving the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating government is in no way related to the Intelligence Committee, or intelligence of any kind. He got that right.

Maman July 19, 2012 at 4:44 pm

I loved that The Daily Show called Boehner a Tandoori-American. Also imagine the Speaker of the House not wanting to libel a citizen. How crazy is that?

Eve8Apples July 19, 2012 at 4:45 pm

It's too bad Michele and Marcus can't pray the stupid away.

Callyson July 19, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Boehner did stop short of saying she would have to leave her post on the Intelligence Committee, though, which she obviously should.

Maybe Boneheader figures her potential replacements within the Republican Party would be even stupider. He might be right for once…

anniegetyerfun July 19, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Stupider, perhaps. But there's no way that they can be as insane.

Schmannnity July 19, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Dashboard Buddha July 19, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Isn't that the guy that helped Mitt develop his plan to lead the country?

Antispandex July 19, 2012 at 4:49 pm

You guys just don't understand. Ms. Bachmann is a straight shooter, shoot from the hip, shooting maverick, like Sarah Palin. When you shoot from the hip, as you would know if you were gun owners instead of liberal hippies, you miss what you are aiming at a lot of the time. But, you shoot fast, make alot of noise, scare the shit out of people. That's what makes America great. Oh, and freedom. Screw the facts. Facts are for non- hip shooters.

Flat_Earther July 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Oh, you people…

redarmyzombie July 19, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Say, you know who ELSE threw dangerous accusations?

ttommyunger July 19, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Michele is so wrapped up solving our National problems I'm betting her panties stay pee-crusted and pretty well skid-marked, ya know; just can't be bothered, too much to do.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 19, 2012 at 5:00 pm

You people are all blind!!! If the Muslim Brotherhood and the Jews get together, it will be 9/11 times a million all over again!

Oh no … that's … 911,000,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

docterry6973 July 19, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I don't get it. When did baseless slander become a problem for Republicans? Also, she is only 5'2", which surprises me given how scary she is.

Doktor Zoom July 19, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Clearly, Ms. Bachman has no sense of Huma.

gullywompr July 19, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Republican women – can't live with 'em, and can't get them to dress up in a little Nazi uniform and beat you with a warm squash or something.
