In Soviet Russia, Mistake Make You

"What people recogize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward."

-- Michele Bachmann, speaking today, as opposed to, say, 1948

You know, when even your ability to properly fear-monger sucks, you've got serious problems.

You are on a roll with your headline jokes. Kudos.

To be fair, she's not wrong on all of it if the conservatives don't remember how to compromise.

I'm just waiting for China to get its way with a new global currency (even if it takes years), if we don't get our shit together and change our tax policies and affect other economic factors to our benefit.

I wouldn't be shocked if she thinks that the collapse of the Soviet Union was in fact an elaborate Soviet conspiracy to catch us off our guard when the moment was right. That's exactly the kind of thing those gay Islamic commie atheists are known to do, you know.

Wait a minute. I thought Sarah Palin was keeping an eye on the Soviet Union! She's out of Alaska for a year and Russia has reformed the USSR and is resurrecting the cold war?!? Clever communist bastards. Glenn Beck was right! Somebody reassemble the 1980 olympic ice hockey team and begin the thawing of Ronald Reagan!

Fucking hell! The sad thing is there are probably 2.5 million rednecks that agree w/her!

Like you said, Chez....somewhere inside her, Nomad's brain is saying, "Must sterilize".

I know that there are those who will sneer "Of course she wasn't born yesterday!!" They're right. No one can get that f***ing stupid in only 24 hours.

I really do admire Michelle Bachmann. She has accomplished much in life and has lived her convictions (she has raised nearly a couple of dozen children...most not her own.)

But good Lord, this woman has absolutely no business being president of the United States.

I can understand looking at her stances on issues and agreeing. Hell, I agree with much she says.

But she is a complete buffoon.

How, for the love of God, does someone listen to her and then think this woman should be given veto power or congress, the duty to nominate federal judges and the authority to negotiate with foreign countries on our behalf? Oh, and complete command authority of our military.

George W. Bush may have been innarticulate...(some would say stupid but I disagree) but at least he seemed in touch with reality!

Disclaimer....I just got back from throwing a few down at the bar, so please don't judge me by my typing or syntax.

What Soviet Union?

You know, I wouldn't mind the media shoving a mike in her face every time she started talking if, after her speech was over, they hired someone to jump out on stage with a horn and slide whistle.

Holy fucking shit.

I bet this won't matter to her supporters. History is for nerds hyuck hyuck, pass me another coors light. SILVER BULLET!!
