DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU…….

Posted on: June 3, 2013

michele_bachmannShe’s calling it quits. Wants to spend more time with her family. Feels she can make more of a “contribution” from the sidelines than as an elected official. Blah, blah, blah.

Michele Bachmann is not running for office in 2014. Only two weeks after raising funds for her next campaign, Michele announced that she will not be a congressional candidate in next year’s midterm elections. Be still my beating heart!

After years of listening to her drivel where “facts” were never an issue, she is hanging up her crown as “Tea Party Princess” under a cloud of suspicion for the mishandling of funds during her bid for the presidency. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I’m not sure what I will miss the most about Ms. Bachmann. Her paranoid assertions or her “loosey goosey” declarations of the facts. This is a woman whose acquaintance with history is minimal at best and her hatred of Obama far outweighed whatever else she had to offer when it came to public policy.

She essentially was “anti” everything. Gays, science, women’s rights, immigration, government, healthcare, you name it.

But one cannot overlook the fact that Michele was “colorful”. Instrumental in leading the Tea Party proponents to a greater visibility in the last few years, she never missed an opportunity to “stick it to Obama” whenever a microphone was shoved in her face.

Always good for a “giggle” she will be missed. However, she has left an imprint of her legacy. There are still enough Tea Party stalwarts who think along the same lines as Michele who hate government enough to bring the nation to its knees.

Ignorance is the crutch we bear with these elected officials who determine the future of the country by rejecting every means of progress presented in going forward.

But make not mistake: as Michele’s exits from the national arena there are still plenty more just like her more than willing to take up the mantle of stupidity when it comes to governance and misstatements.

Throwing it out there and hoping some of its sticks is her true legacy in the end.

Good bye, Michele, and watch out for that door!

Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish Pat…

Oh and the news keeps getting better for us and bad for the Elephant Party:

Damn its going to get harder to sell Austerity.

What Fuzzy said, times two.

But who will we have to rotflmao at now?

i like this from Krugman:

But I’ve never understood the logic of this demand. The risk is that we might, at some point in the future, have to cut benefits; to avoid this risk of future benefit cuts, we are supposed to act pre-emptively by…cutting future benefits. What problem, exactly, are we solving here?

And there are ways to fix this that don’t involve cutting benefits but the austerity folks don’t want to talk about that.

Something is not quite kosher here — Marcus’ bombastic bride was running ads the week before her “surprise” announcement while she was on a Tea Party tour over in the belly of the beast formally dubbed “Great Satin” looking for evidence of Obama buying a pressure cooker as an immigration gift for the Tsarnaev brothers.

Here’s a long shot guess — if the FBI investigation goes away or she is able to pin the bribing of the Iowa State Senator on someone else, she will have gotten rid of the Democrat who could have beaten her, she will announce in full-swoon, “Lordy mercy, my constituents have implored me to run again — my work is too important to the good people of the 6th Congressional District, and I have the vapors about it all, but I’ve reconsidered and I will run again.”

Of course this will come after much prayer and the answer will appear to her in a dream on the wings of a black, hispanic, lesbian angel carrying a slide rule instead of a harp. That’s just the way she rolls.

Too far fetched — so was the chemical imbalance spawning her run for the Presidency.

I think that you may well have nailed it, Prolix.

Poor Krug, he never seems to understand that the Austerians aren’t actually trying to solve a problem. They’re just trying to steal our money. Pure and simple.

As for Michele, I disagree with Prolix. I think she is taking time off to get in shape for her new role on “Dancing with the Stars.” Bristol Palin will be tough competition though!

Prolix@6: LOL! Don’t make me laugh. Went to the dentist and still numb all the way into my nose and it feels funny when I laugh like that!

@6 Actually Prolix, she’s always looked more than a bit manic to me. A little lithium or Depakote might help.

If she’s really stopping her continuation of “at the trough” slurping (what has she done that was beneficial to people other than her buddies anyway?) will she return the campaign money to those that are misguided enough (or stupid enough) to give it to her in the first place. One other question, did she make enough money to continue to finance her botox injections as well as deflect press attention to her somewhat shady husband? Not that he’s anymore shady than she – attention to both would be welcome.

Michele is undergoing a Make Over when she come back she plans on presenting herself as a “New Conservative” Commentator on FOX Entertainment and Comedic News Station. She is replacing Sarah Palin as the party to provide “in depth political Analysis” with a rightward spin. On FOX Crazy just went Batshit Crazy.
