The dumbest politician in US history, slightly edging out Sarah Palin. Gained name recognition and notoriety in a 2007 interview on "Hardball" w/ Chris Matthews where she advocated a McCarthy-esque media witch-hunt for Anti-American liberals in Congress. Self-proclaimed teabagger who didn't know Lexington and Concord are in Massachusetts, not New Hampshire. Once said, "the founding fathers worked tirelessly to eradicate slavery." Very popular among uneducated bigots.
When Congresswoman Michele Bachmann argued against the 9/11 responder bill, calling it an "entitlement program," I considered shooting my TV.
A fucking idiot. A woman so wacky that, if elected president, will run this country directly into the ground. In fact I think
I'd prefer four more years of Bush over this witch.
Some of Michele's best gems,
(1) BACHMANN WARNED ‘THE LION KING’ WAS GAY PROPAGANDA: At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmann said the “normalization” of homosexuality would lead to “desensitization”: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”
(2) BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT SCIENTISTS ARE SUPPORTERS OF INTELLIGENT DESIGN: During a 2006 debate, Bachmann said,“There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” This was, and is, not true.
(3)BACHMANN CLAIMED TERRI SCHIAVO WAS ‘HEALTHY’: Not long after Terri Schiavo died, Bachmann said she would have voted for the Palm Sunday Compromise because Schiavo “was healthy. She had brain damage — there was brain damage, there was no question. But from a health point of view, she was not terminally ill.” An autopsy found that Schiavo had suffered irreversible brain damage and her brain, said the medical examiner, was “profoundly atrophied.”
(4)BACHMANN LIKENED VISITING IRAQ TO VISITING MALL OF AMERICA: In 2007, Bachmann returned from a junket to Iraq and told her colleagues, “There’s a commonality with the Mall of America, in that it’s on that proportion. There’s marble everywhere. The other thing I remarked about was there is water everywhere.” As ThinkProgress documented at the time, the comparison was preposterous.
(5)BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS ‘HARMLESS’: In 2008, a Stanford scientist revealed “direct links” between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and “increases in human mortality” — globally, he found that as many as “20,000 air-pollution-related deaths per year per degree Celsius may be due to this greenhouse gas.” The next year, Bachmann, who is not a scientist, said that “carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
Michele Bachmann in the white house? Oh, shit!
The reincarnated spirit of John Wayne Gacy.
Person A: Michele Bachmann is a clown.
Person B: Oh that's just the way she dresses when she's cruising for victims.
The only person in the world who is dumber than Sarah Palin.
(a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 2012 U.S. presidential election.)
Michele Bachmann quoted to say:
''Not all cultures are equal.''
"I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter." –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on theHPV vaccine, Fox News interview, Sept. 12, 2011
"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." (Apr. 2009)
Whadda dumbass. Oh, and she's a homophobic bitch that feels that she can pushChristianity on America.
