Delusional Bachmann claims to have “destroyed” liberals with her superior logic

As she nears the end of her tenure in Congress, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) reflected back on her adversarial relationship with liberals.

“Well, telling the truth bothers them,” Bachmann said. “They don’t like to have the truth told about them, and that’s really what it is. I didn’t fear the left. I decided to take them on in the arena of ideas by attacking their false premises and their false narratives.”

Bachmann told World Net Daily, which referred to her as a “GOP legend” in the headline (HAHAHA!), that she had become a media target because she had basically outsmarted her liberal foes.
“That’s the best way to defeat them, by the way — defeat them with evidence and defeat them with their false premises, and I did that,” she said.

As Right Wing Watch noted, Bachmann was so noted for her false claims that the chief fact checker for the Associated Press established a “self-imposed Michele Bachmann quota,” and Politifact found the Minnesota Republican had the worst record for accuracy by far of any 2012 presidential candidate.

“I took them on, and their agenda, and I went to the heart of whatever it was they wanted to advance, and tried to take it apart through evidence-based arguments, and they don’t like that,” Bachmann said. “When the left argues, they argue from emotionalism.”

She blamed liberals for driving Republican women away from seeking political office.

“The Republican Party always gets a bad rap because there are not as many women that are in elective office, but it’s a tough business,” Bachmann said. “It is public humiliation, public ridicule, constant criticism when you’re in public office – if you take on the left.”

Bachmann Mulling Another Sideshow, er, Prez Campaign Run in 2016

It’s the campaign nobody is asking for, but we might get it anyway!!

Michele Bachmann was barely able to hold onto her solidly Republican exurban district last election cycle, and in May 2013 she announced she won’t run for another term. Yet she still believes she’d be a viable presidential contender in 2016.

Bachmann was asked by the right-leaning RealClearPolitics whether she thinks any Republican women will make a push to be their party’s presidential candidate, and in reply she threw her own name into the mix.

“The only thing that the media has speculated on is that it’s going to be various men that are running,” she said. “They haven’t speculated, for instance, that I’m going to run. What if I decide to run? And there’s a chance I could run.” 

There’s also a chance I could run, but that’d require a Godly miracle like the one Michele thinks will ultimately force Presidential Obama to voluntarily repeal Obamacare. But we digress.

And even though her last presidential campaign was a scandal-plagued disaster, Bachmann told RealClearPolitics the experience would benefit her if she decides to make another go at it.

“Like with anything else, practice makes perfect,” she said. “And I think if a person has gone through the process — for instance, I had gone through 15 presidential debates — it’s easy to see a person’s improvement going through that.” 

But Bachmann, who in the interview called herself “one of the top — if not the top — fundraisers in the history of the United States Congress,” cautioned she hasn’t made a final decision one way or the other, adding that she’ll think more seriously about it after her last term in Congress wraps up.

I am hoping that she does decide to run. Why? Because she has no chance of winning and thereby driving the country into a ditch anyway, but who can resist the excitement of the possibility of more stories like the one about how the Associated Press threw in the towel on fact-checking her during the 2012 Republican presidential debates because so much of what she said was pure bullshit!

Breaking Down Gun Nuts

Ah, gun nuts… Everything with these people is guns. You see it with these open carry lunatics where they apparently feel the need to carry some kind of firearm with them 24 hours a day.  Not only that, they want it strapped to them in full display of the public.  Because nothing says “I’m sane” quite like believing that you need an AR-15 strapped to your back while you order a burger at a local fast food restaurant.

It’s just absurd. But these open carry clowns honestly aren’t about self defense and “the Second Amendment” – it’s about inadequacy and “looking tough.”  That’s why they stage events to show off their guns.  It’s not about being out somewhere that you feel you might need protection.  It’s all about telling the public, “F*ck you, I’m carrying this big gun wherever I want!” The way I look at it, although I’m not licensed as a medical practitioner, I just don’t see these people as mentally stable.  If they really believe that life is so terrifying that they need a semi-automatic weapon with them wherever they go – that’s mental illness as far as I’m concerned.  If you believe that strapping a rifle to your back to shop at your local Walmart is a “necessity,”

Here are 10 signs that I believe prove that someone is too mentally ill to own guns.  Again, this isn’t meant to be viewed as any sort of “official” guide to mental illness and I am not a doctor.  This is just my own personal opinion on the matter, so keep that in mind.

1) They believe that guns should be openly displayed in public – everywhere.

2) They hoard guns in anticipation of a possible overthrow of our federal government.

3) Even the slightest mention of a new gun regulation sends them into a paranoid rant about gun confiscation, bringing about references to Nazi Germany.

4) They honestly believe that the federal government can be overthrown.

5) Their answer to any kind of dispute between the government and a citizen is to show up in armed groups because they don’t like how a court ruled on a particular issue.

6) They’ve frequently rush out to buy guns an ammo in anticipation of some form of government ban on weapons that never – ever happens.

7) They honestly believe that easy access to guns has nothing to do with gun violence.

8) They believe that anytime they feel threatened, shooting anything that they feel threatened by is the first answer.

9) They own nearly a full wardrobe of shirts or hats depicting gun manufacturers or NRA logos.

10) They believe that it should be easier to buy a gun than cast a vote.

Paul Ryan’s CPAC Sideshow

Every once in a while I take a sigh and think, “Thank God Romney and Ryan are not in the White House.” Yesterday was one of those days. Paul Ryan (R-LaLaLand) spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) yesterday and claimed that Democrats are out of touch. He went on to tell an obviously fictional tale of a poor kid who resents receiving free school lunch because it means his parents don’t love him.

Seriously…
