Tea Party Queen Michele Bachmann for President of the Deranged

January 5, 2011

(ChattahBox Political News)—The deranged unhinged right-wing ideologue Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has higher aspirations beyond serving, as a GOP tea party buffoon, often seen on Fox News and heard on conservative talk radio spouting off bizarre extremist nonsense. ABC News is reporting the mad as a hatter lawmaker, who once urged her constituents to “slit our wrists, be blood brothers” in opposing health care reform, is considering a run for president. You might be wondering, president of what exactly. President of the United States of America. That’s right, the wacky teapartier, who is currently promoting an online petition to shut down the federal government and throw our nation into default, wants to be the leader of the free world. Maybe all of those dead blackbirds falling from the sky know something we don’t know. The apocalypse may indeed be near.

Think of Michele Bachmann as a crazier version of Sarah Palin, and you immediately realize how utterly insane and self-deluded this woman is.

ABC News writes:

“Forget the fervent chatter speculating that Tea Party favorite Rep. Michele Bachmann is considering launching a campaign to challenge Sen. Amy Klobuchar for the Minnesota U.S. Senate seat in the next national election cycle. Think bigger”

“ABC News has learned that Bachmann, R-Minn., also is seriously weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012″

“A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run. Bachmann, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, also is set to deliver a keynote speech at an Iowans for Tax Relief PAC fundraiser Jan. 21 in Des Moines, Iowa.”

When Bachmann’s chief staff was asked about her 2012 presidential aspirations, he acknowledged that it was a possibility.

‘”Nothing is off the table,” Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish told ABC News when asked whether the Iowa trip signaled Bachmann’s intent to run for president. “The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year.’

Really, what is there to say? After the mid-term elections Bachmann campaigned for a leadership spot in Congress, but Republican leaders quickly dissuaded the loony Congresswoman from harboring such absurd ambitions.

Washington Monthly’s Steve Benen said it best:

“Shortly after the midterm elections, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) launched a campaign to become the new House Republican Conference Chair. GOP leaders, who tend to find Bachmann rather embarrassing, quietly crushed her bid, and ensured she wouldn’t join the congressional leadership.”

“One wonders, then, how they’d feel about a much bigger promotion for the deranged Minnesota Republican.”

Indeed.

    I think she should run. It will give republicans who don’t know much about her an opportunity to see just how useless and nutty her positions on the issues are. I also think it’s a good idea for her to work on not increasing the debt ceiling. If the effort is successful, it will give her and her colleagues in Congress an opportunity to see that a shutdown of the government will not only affect average Americans, it will also affect them. If the government is unable to pay its bills, that will also mean that the government will not be able to pay them. I really don’t think they’ve thought about this little fact, and I don’t think they’re good students of history. When Newt tried this, the results for the Republican Party were devastating.

    Majii:

    I would LOVE to see crazy-eyed Michele Bachmann run. Imagine a Republican Palin/Bachmann ticket. It sure would be entertaining.

    But in the event those two loons won, then I would have to move to Canada, so, never mind.
