Cat Scratch Fever: Bachmann and Ingraham Hiss, Meow at Pelosi

October 22, 2009

(ChattahBox)— The wacky Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), known for her unintentionally hilarious statements, recently appeared on Laura Ingraham’s right-wing talk radio show to smear Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and rant about something she called a “pro-freedom agenda.” In Bachman’s and Ingraham’s world view, former GOP Senate Majority Leaders Bill Frist (TN) and Bob Dole (KS) are a couple of losers who support a “non-pro-freedom agenda,” because they support reform of our nation’s broken health care system.

Dole, the 1996 Republican presidential candidate, recently urged his party to become a part of the Obama administration’s health care reform efforts acknowledging, “we’ve got to do something.” And Frist, during a recent CSPAN interview, condemned his own party’s obstructionism and labeled Republicans calling health care reform Socialism, as extreme.

What should be viewed, as sound rational judgments coming from seasoned political leaders in the Republican party, are now treated by the extreme right-wing members prevalent in the GOP, as “…a losing outlook.

Ingraham claimed that President Obama wants Republicans to be more moderate and rationale [not crazy] like Dole and Frist, because he wants them to lose. Bachmann then chimed in saying, it’s because Obama, supports the “non-pro-freedom agenda” advocated by Dole and Frist:

NGRAHAM: Of course. God bless Bob Dole he just came on our show, I have great respect for the man. And also for Frist. But Frist presided over a pretty disastrous situation in the Senate.

BACHMANN: They lost.

INGRAHAM: They lost. And Bob Dole lost how many times on a national level? I guess I’ve lost count. […] That Republican ideology and that Republican outlook has been a losing outlook. That’s why President Obama wants more of us to be like them.

BACHMANN: Because we want a pro-freedom agenda. And he’s trying to throw people around who he believes will increase a non-pro-freedom agenda.

The two right-wing gal pals then proceeded to trash Speaker Pelosi. When Bachman accused Pelosi of making her the Speaker’s number one target, Ingraham began to hiss and meow like a cat, bizarrely claiming Pelosi doesn’t like “powerful women,” like Michele Bachman. Nancy Pelosi just happens to have the distinction of being the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives.
