Michele Bachmann - Always Good for a Laugh

Seriously now, Michele Bachmann, representing the ever-redder faced Minnesotans who elected her, is always good for a fun quote. Her latest wisdom is that while she is not "blaming [the swine flu] on President Obama" she finds it an interesting coincidence that the last swine flu outbreak in the US occurred under a Democratic president.

Apparently Michele, not being as old as some of us, doesn't remember the Swine Flu epidemic of 1976, when Gerald Ford (a Republican) was actually President. But then again, Michele isn't exactly known for her accuracy, as much as for her apparent willingness to say just about anything when faced with a camera. Keep it up kiddo - it's not a real Bachmann quote until milk is squirtting out of my nose.

Although I'm not sure I'm convinced as some in the Democratic party are, that Michele's words of unwisdom are worth their own website. Apparently the site has just started up, because they only have a handful of Bachmannisms, and not even the best ones! They focus on economic issues. How dull.

So for the uninitiated, I bring you -- Michele in all her glory!

Little children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and perhaps they should try it. - Interview with Jan Markell, Olive Tree Ministries.

Literally, if we took away the minimum wage—if conceivably it was gone—we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level. . . . If we allow businesses to be prosperous and accrue capital, they’ll be giving their employees more than they can even begin to imagine. But when we continue to tie cement blocks on businesses (like the minimum wage) and constrain them, they can actually do less than their employees. . . . I was wondering, if most employers are already doing this anyway, isn’t minimum wage really just superfluous? Why do we even have one? — 1/26/05, Jobs, Energy and Community Development Committee, testifying against a bill to raise the MN minimum wage and advocating the elimination of the minimum wage altogether.

We’re in a state of crisis where our nation is literally ripping apart at the seams right now, and lawlessness is occurring from one ocean to the other. And we’re seeing the fulfillment of the Book of Judges here in our own time, where every man doing that which is right in his own eyes—in other words, anarchy. as guest on “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004.

Spending comes just as natural to liberals in Minnesota and the Minnesota legislature as bashing decency comes to the editorial board of our major metropolitan newspapers.EdWatch conference, October 10-11, 2003

It isn’t that some gay will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality. -- guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004.

And of course, who could forget this nugget on Pelosi's work for legislation to deal with climate change:

[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she's just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet -- we didn't need Nancy Pelosi to do that.

Good question! I'd say the only way to make it freakier would be to have a pro wrestler show up as governor, but they've already done that!
