Have you met someone who says the most ridiculous things, but thinks he or she is so smart and knows everything?
I’m sure most of us have. And, unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your perspective, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann fits the bill.
She has said the strangest, most ridiculous things, and some netizens have described Bachmann and her logic as a ‘gift that keeps on giving’ for the Democrats. In fact,there is now a website dedicated to her words.
The Politico reports on April 28: “Democrats just can’t get enough of Rep. Michele Bachmann, the always controversial, always quotable Minnesota Republican.
In fact, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has built a website — http://www.bachmannwatch.com — devoted entirely to Bachmann’s
rhetoric, slamming what they believe are overstatements or exaggerations about everything from ACORN to the stimulus.
“The same woman who once said Congress should be investigated for those with anti-American leanings and once argued that she couldn’t support the economic recovery act because America was ‘running out of rich people,’” the site blares.”
She has also alluded to a link between the swine flu and Democrats “I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” Bachmann said in an interview with PajamasTV.
Apparently, her facts are wrong. Several media have pointed out that it was Republican President Gerald Ford, and not Carter, who led the country during the last outbreak of the virus. And what is she trying to imply?
Does Ms Bachmann think before she speaks? If she represents the younger batch of Republican leaders, then, good luck GOP.
