You can’t make up stuff like this

A conservative Republican congresswoman from Minnesota who got a degree from the now-defunct law school at Oral Roberts University SAYS Barack Obama, a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, “isn’t well-schooled and prepared to be the president of the United States.”

Rep. Michele Bachmann is so far to the right that she once condemned Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s economic initatives as Marxism.

Bachmann, whose impressively well-educated husband has a mail-order degree in clinical psychology, is an advocate of teaching so-called intelligent design (a thinly-veiled religious scheme to promote creationism) in public schools.

She refers to herself  as “a fool for Christ” and once said that God “called me to run for Congress” and that God “focused like a laser beam” on her race for Congress.

Bachmann once employed a bit of biblical inspiration in dismissing efforts to fight global warming to save the planet. She said: “We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet…”

There’s more on the fascinating Ms. Bachmann HERE.

Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if John McCain picked Bachmann for his running mate? Please, please, please.

    Is she related to Phylis Schlafly? I thought in-breeding was illegal.

    “Rev. Jeremiah Wright mentored Barack Obama. Bring it on.”

    Better talk to all your right wing buddies. They claim Obama is a Muslim and was educated in a madrassa. Which is it?

    Schlafly was a right wing nut job. So is Bachmann. Rev. Wright is a nut job too. So what’s your point? Do you even have one?

  3. By the way, Schlafly has a middle-aged son who’s openly gay. Of course, that means he’ll burn in hell for eternity while his mom frolics around heaven with Falwell and all the other saints.

    Bob’s getting close to becoming a one trick pony when it comes to religion…

    Noun – Verb – Rev. Jeremiah Wright – repeat.

    She is a fool all right, but why does she have to drag Christ into her foolishness?

    Pat,

    Don’t forget that Schlafly used to travel the country and preach that women shouldn’t work. They were to stay home and take care of their husbands and children. Apparently her husband agreed and divorced her because she was NEVER home.

  7. Jeremiah Wright? Okay I’ll see that and raise you McCain’s mentor, George W Bush. That’s a current mentor by the way.

    Back in the early 70’s a unique photo essay called WISCONSIN DEATH TRIP hit the bookshelves.
    http://tinyurl.com/5lgfym
    A facinating look at small town Wisconsin (Black River Falls) during the late 19th century, it contained bizarre stories and photos of a life we normally wouldn’t associate with rural America. In the book were pages from the roster of inmates at the State Mental Asylum. Listed quite often as a cause for commitment was the term “Deranged by religion”.
    What a wonderful term!
    And still so applicable.

    hokumboy,

    I don’t recall ever seeing the place on the occasions when I was there, but I will support any effort to have it reopened so those who are deranged by religion can be committed. I can think of a few people who need treatment. Some of them are bloggers.
