Stupid on Blast: The Michelle Bachmann Files--Wisconsin Republicans are like Reagan and Lincoln

Rep. Michele Bachmann told radio host Mark Levin on Friday evening that in facing protests by labor supporters Gov. Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans are like President Abraham Lincoln, who fought the Confederacy, and President Reagan, who contended with the Soviet Union. But contrary to Bachmann’s assertion, Lincoln had more in common with the 14 Democrats who left the state to avoid a vote on the GOP bill to cut collective bargaining for Wisconsin workers: In 1840, he jumped out a window to avoid a vote on a bill he didn’t like.

“I’m just observing our neighbors to the east over there and having a laugh,” Bachmann said. “I’d say it’s a new revolution going on over there. We saw the great Ronald Reagan pushing back the Soviet Union in the eastern bloc nations. We saw Abraham Lincoln push back the Confederacy in Atlanta. And now we’re seeing the Republicans in Wisconsin causing the Democrats to retreat to Rockford, Illinois, so I’d say we’re winning!”

She added, “This is how liberals react. They don’t take no for an answer.”


Once more, they show us who they always are. For the Vox Populi New Right Tea Party GOP, stupid is once again the new black. As a qualifier, there is more truth to Bachmann's claim regarding good old Ronnie Reagan as union buster number one, than said lady knew. In a Right-wing echo chamber that is utterly detached from reality, and whose minions bite at the bit for a chance to recite the talking point of the day, Michelle Bachmann is champion of champions--Queen Bee of the mediocrities.

Or stated differently Michelle Bachmann is batshit crazy:

A person who is batshit crazy is certifiably nuts. The phrase has origins in the old fashioned term "bats in the belfry." Old churches had a structure at the top called a belfry, which housed the bells. Bats are extremely sensitive to sound and would never inhabit a belfry of an active church where the bell was rung frequently. Occasionally, when a church was abandoned and many years passed without the bell being rung, bats would eventually come and inhabit the belfry. So, when somebody said that an individual had "bats in the belfry" it meant that there was "nothing going on upstairs" (as in that person's brain). To be BATSHIT CRAZY is to take this even a step further. A person who is batshit crazy is so nuts that not only is their belfry full of bats, but so many bats have been there for so long that the belfry is coated in batshit. Hence, the craziest of crazy people are BATSHIT CRAZY.

The whole piece can be found here. What other historical analogies will the defenders of the New Right GOP's assault on unions abuse next?

if you look carefully, you'll notice Bachmann has that insane chimpanzee glaze in her eyes. Mad cow disease. Or maybe kuru. You know how it is, Minnesota in the deeps of a blizzard, slow starvation, stuck in a cabin waiting for an elderly family member to kick the bucket for some sustenance.

Bad prions are twisting the proteins in her neurons into a really special, never before seen order of adulterated fucked-uppedness.

Am I suggsting Michelle Bachmann is a cannibal? Why, yes, I am!

Can't wait for the final stages of her insanity. I'll want a ring side seat.

Well if she was a zombie should could at least eat some brains. Perhaps, this would up her IQ?
