Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5: Michele Bachmann

Minnesota representative and unofficial chairman of the Tea Party’s Crazy Caucus Michele Bachmann made news this week at an event at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, VA. During a wide-ranging interview, Bachmann made this jaw-dropping claim: “I was very proud of the fact that I didn’t get anything wrong that I said during the course of the debates. I didn’t get anything wrong and that’s a huge arena.”

Bachmann’s claim is outrageously false, and borderline delusional. In fact, Bachmann got so many things wrong during the debates that Associated Press fact-checker Jim Drinkard said, “We had to have a self-imposed Michele Bachmann quota in some of those debates.”

  1. America is a collection of diverse personalities. If you are an idiot, felon, liar or cheat at everything you do, if you take pride in being known as an asshole, you are likely a republiCON.

    If you are gutless, a crybaby, have no back bone and cherish being lied to and sodomized, you are no doubt a good Democrat.

    If you are sick of liars, jackass’s that sell you down the river, listening to idiots that dont know what they are talking about and tired of seeing our Constitution and Bill of Rights being trampled, it is time to join an Independent Party and do whatever you can to save the United States by removing both treasonist republiCONs and dems from office and then changing the laws of this country to make the type of governance that we have seen since 1968 made illegal.

  2. I love this week in crazy. Theresa wonders why I’m hooked on U.S. politics. Ha! While she’s nodding off watching an exciting detailed discussion of Wheat Board and agricultural policies on the CBC, I’m enjoying: the evolving definition of the family is somehow similar to 19th century slavery (somehow); 100 round magazine legislation needed to shoot down your own country’s DRONES; gulags and gas chambers for rednecks (mmmm….yeah alright); reasonable gun restrictions should translate to an arms control treaty between American citizens and their own military; and proposed anti-Dr. Moreau legislation to prevent a possible planet of the Apes scenario (from a previous week).

    Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. That’s how you do politics. God bless America (well…the GOP anyway).

    It’s a wonder I never got into Jerry Springer.

  3. I wonder how anyone in this country knows how many shots it takes to shoot down a drone with an AR15? Maybe someone in Afghanistan could say how many many shot it takes with an AK47.

  4. I am stunned by Michele Bachmann’s statement that she did not get anything wrong during her
    campaign. I am trying to remember what she got right. She told so many things that were not
    true until her experienced campaign manager resigned. Keep on believing this Michele and you
    will not get elected next time. You almost didn’t make it this time.

  5. Rednecks and Goobers and Mutants — oh my!

    It’s hard enough to believe that there are people stupid enough to fall for some of this nuttiness and yet still remember to breathe, but rednecks as saviors of democracy? If evil old Obama is plotting the demise of Western civilization — as some of these nut-balls claim with a straight face — then he needn’t order the government to stockpile bullets. Stockpiling Budweiser would be a better bet.

    Sometimes I wonder what people in other countries think of when America comes to mind. Could it be a vision of the nutty, slack-jawed and totally incomaptible-with-sanity face of somebody like Rand Paul? Is America becoming the world’s Goober? How much more embarrassing can they get?

    • There are many more surprise ahead for you. They are only beginning to plum the depths of ” Whackoery” on the rethuglican side of the aisle.

          • Obama can’t accomplish what he wants because he’s not a dictator. He can’t make others “do whats right” because he’s not a dictator. Why would he make this point?? I’ve never heard a President talk like this when he doesn’t get his own way. What is he up to?? A coup??

          • Is there something physically wrong with your optic nerves and your neurological pathways that causes you to be unable to process truth and facts?

            I don’t know why I even try to make sense to someone so willfully ingnorant.

          • Lana-You ask a valid question, “What is he up to?”.

            Definitely open to interpretation. During the campaign, that was easier to answer. Now, it’s simpler to just list the things he says he can’t do. I’m staisfied he isn’t doing some of the things expected of him by his waning minority.

            Stay tuned for next week’s WH chaos briefing, as accurately depicted by John Stewart . With the end of the world yesterday, as the squester kicked in, The Daily Show should be a riot. Nope, I just peeked outside and it’s still there. It’s the republican’s fault.

          • Instead of worrying about the economy. Omuslim takes another vacation. He must be trying to tan : )

          • Instead of worrying about the possibility of 9-11, W’s first six months in the White House were half vacation. What are you complaining about, because Reggie didn’t come by to pay you a visit? He already knows yo’ mama,which you still don’t.

          • Why is O talking dictator shit??? Why did he release all of those illegals??? This is what dictators do

          • Did you even read what he said? If you did, apparently you don’t understand English. What did he asy about being a dictator? He said, “I am not a dictator. I am the president.” And what illegals did he release? He PARDONED 17 people who had been convicted of minor offenses and, in caseyou have not read the Constitution, it is the right of the President to PARDON, as every President before him has done, and as most governors do. This just proves, clearly and irrefutably, that you are a grade-school dropout.

          • He is thinking dictator because he’s going to be ours!!! Just like I’ve been saying!! I can’t believe he let us know what he wants in a round about way. He actually said dictator!!!!

          • And Charlton Heston thought he was God after he finished “The Ten Commandments”. So what is your point? Sounds like something Mitt Romney would say at a meeting of his wealthy contributorsand his other butt buddies.

          • Omuslim has said he’s tired of having to deal with that pesky congress. He wants to do what he wants to do. Sounds like a dictator to me

          • I believe dropped on his head Lana is talking about the illegals ICE released because of the upcoming Sequester. Something ICE did without informing the White House,President Obama, and Congress they were going to do it.

          • I don’t know, but I bet you do. His butt buddy? Is that something conservatives dream about, or did you just make that one up? You people have such strange fetishes.

          • Omuslims little vacation to golf with Tiger Woods was cover to be with his lover Reggie Love. That’s why the media wasn’t allowed

          • And W’s 45 days of vacation in his first six months was to get his loosened up by Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and all the other neocons who had him as f—d up as you are.

          • You don’t know Omuslim is queer? His marriage is a sham, a cover for his being queer! Rev. Wrights church had a club in for queers. Check out “The Down Low Club”

          • “What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”. Shakespeare. I checked out your WND website and, as was to be expected, their presentation SOUNDS plausible, until you prod a little below the surface, and check THEIR sources. Once again, I strongly urge you to enroll in a critical thinking course, so you can sort out the truth from propaganda. You and your associates repeatedly accuse those of us who are on the left of being duped by the powers that be. With everything you have claimed over the past few weeks, it is easy to discern who has been duped, for you have blindly accepted as TRUTH a lot of what is just propaganda.

          • Lana is not a female thank God. Last March I think it was someone called him a witch with a capital B which made him very angry and he posted back in language I don’t use that he was not a witch with a capital B he was a man.

          • Omuslim can’t accomplish what he wants because he’s not a dictator. He can’t make others do what he wants, do whats right for the country because he’s not a dictator. WHY would he make this point?? I’ve never heard a President talk like this when he doesn’t get his own way!!!!

          • In the respect they work for the people and not just the rich, and the people who donate the most.

          • I dunno, blu. The guy I work for is rich. He makes about 20 times more then I do. But I didn’t start the business and build it up over a lifetime. If the people got together and ‘fired’ him and divided his money, we wouldn’t have jobs anymore.

          • but does he own the government? Does he have his own senator doing his bidding? does he have his own congressman to make his life easier?

          • no idea who you are talking about. One senator isn’t going to do much harm and 1 rep-who? is this the conspiracy theory of the week?

          • I completly understand what plc is saying if your boss happens to be the Koch brothers they have their own senators, and they have a lot of congressmen to help them get their way. (they are bought and paid for)

          • O is pre-selling the coup. He can’t accomplish what he wants because he’s not a dictator. He can’t make others do what he wants, do the right thing because he’s not a dictator. Why would he make this point? I’ve never heard a President talk like this when he didn’t get his own way. I told you he wants to be a dictator. Lets watch and see what happens!!!!

          • In that although we may disagree overall we can still come to an agreement that doesn’t totally displease one side or the other.

          • Unfortunately, the nuts are running the asylum. As long as these nut jobs keep getting face time, there will be other nut jobs that believe it. Even the clear thinking Rethuglicans realize that what is happening to the party is nothing short of political suicide.

          • I don’t care what’s happening in that party now. This isn’t The End…..that seems like a contrived focus to hide the real status; SNAFU. Can’t control the face time. I’d like to heal the nut jobs and see more people working again. The money that business could be using to expand jobs is being collected in higher taxes. Lower those corporate taxes Mr Obama. Give us jobs, not BS

      • No, she’s already been messed up on some of that synthetic marijuana. Saw the Katie Couric show today and they had a girl on there who took the stuff and really got messed up. I guess Lana hasn’t come down yet.

    • Let’s pretend the ENTIRE world is sizing up America based on what you just wrote.

      Please, if you must kick a Republican in the teeth, don’t bring OUR country down a notch to do it. Supposedly, all of US are in this DEMOCRACY experiment together. It will fail, no, WE will fail if all of us don’t put down the demeaning horsesh-t and show each other a little RESPECT. The same kind of respect the REST OF THE WORLD probably believes they will never get from the USA, based on how we treat each other. How about helping to bring it up out of the mud, for everyone’s sake….thanks

      • Many thanks for your assistance with Internet etiquette. I’m afraid that one of my many failings is that I have zero respect for bigots and racists, and not much more than zero for blooming idiots. If you don’t mind, I’ll leave the hand-holding and warm showers for the altruistic souls such as yourself.

        • WhutHeSaid – Thank you for the reply and demonstred abuse of decency, kindness and consideration for the other humans on this rock. Your display of hate and prejudice toward your countrtymen is only exceeded by your insolent imaginings and flawed puruasions. Please allow me to part your internet with a couple words from Mirriam Webster :
          big·ot·ry – intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself
          rac·ism – discrimination directed against someone of a different race

          • Thank you most kindly, Mr. Helper. The next time I need a sermon, I’ll come tug on your robe — deal? Meanwhile, you’d better get busy teaching the Gospel of St. Angels in CA to all of those errant Omuslims, DemonRATS, libtards, socialists, communists and Kenyan dictators plotting the demise of Western civilization. Hurry — so many to bless, so little time!

          • I’m very sorry that I don’t measure up to your expectations, but at least now I’m aware of what the Internet needs. It’s good to know that those of you with boundless love for their fellow man can be counted upon to pray for us heathens.

          • With only two sentences you accomplish much, WhatHeSaid. Not only are you successful in missing the point, you cloak the misunderstanding with sarcastic ridicule, inaccurate assumption, and pedestrian irrelevancy. As a seasoned, surly King of your Domain, surely you can appreciate the futility of roaring while you chew on apathetic passersby. Enjoy the meal.

          • Perhaps you were so preoccupied with pontificating that you missed the intent. By all means, please continue to educate the unwashed masses — even humble peasants can appreciate humor.

          • Excellent guess using the same strategy. You have to taste humility to fully embrace the concept. Need more clue?

          • What an interesting concept for you to present! Given your penchant for sermonizing and your obvious lofty regard for your own opinions, I’m rather surprised that you haven’t yet received an urgent message from Rome. I assume that you already have a number of suitable robes, since I’m certain that you long ago lost the ability to wear buttons. The only issue that really concerns me is whether I might be struck by a lightening bolt for blasphemous replies to your posts. But by all means, please continue bestowing your pearls of wisdom upon the less fortunate, and I’ll do my best to follow along while keeping one eye nervously skyward.

          • Another hit & miss. We remain hopeful you might eventually probe for truth without dumping another jewel of wisdomless bigotry, hate, prejudice, suspicion, stereotype, hate, accusation, more hate, racism and much more fun. Yes, YOU…LOL.

            While mustering the patience waiting for you to get it, a little time was invested capturing the essence of your existence on this planet, in your own words, during the past 3 days. The last one is a geniune hoot…enjoy the show.

            “A person who personally hates somebody who they don’t know has a character defect the magnitude of which is proportional to the expression(s) of hate. In other words, you have a GLARING character defect as evidenced by your excessive personal hate for a man you don’t even know. What could possibly be the root of that character defect? I know the answer, but feel free to explain it yourself.”

            “you are a redneck bigot LOSER”
            “you are a redneck loser, and you wish that somebody was inferior to you so that you could feel better about yourself”
            “you were taught that black skin means inferiority, ”

            AND my personal favorite:

            “you want to believe that you aren’t the very bottom of the barrel, you become unhinged when you are forced to see that you ARE, in fact, the very dregs of society. You react to this realization by attacking”

          • “We remain hopeful…”? I must admit to a little confusion here. I began to wonder if you were developing an alternate personality before my very eyes. Upon further reflection, however, it began to make sense. After all, you’ve already displayed more ‘stuffing’ than any lone individual could possibly amass.

            Not even the vilest and most belligerent of posters has ever before displayed the level of hate that must be the motivation for your attempt to utterly bore me to death by regurgitating three days worth of posts. The recipients of those posts understand more about the meaning than you, and I daresay know full well why such words were directed their way — even the ones that are tongue-in-cheek.

            So I guess that I’m talking to a gaggle of ‘angels’ in California, or at least that’s what you’ve convinced yourselves that you are. The air of pompous self-importance you appear to have actually rises to the level of, say, the Holy Trinity, so I feel that you must be either overestimating or underestimating yourselves.

            One thing is certain, however: You can expect to see angels fly out of my ass before I change my posting style one little bit because you don’t like it. When I want to use humor, I’ll use humor. When I feel that an insult is warranted, yep — you guessed it. So please feel free to snuggle up to my ass-crack and await that fateful day when I actually give a shit what you think. Get comfortable, because you have a long wait.

          • You miss the point again, man. What you saw is the Tossing of the Shit back at you that you so freely toss at everyone else around here. As you put it, “the vilest and most belligerent of posters”. Sticks and stones.

            Let’s get real. Do you understand that bigotry and discrimination don’t need race to thrive? Or, that your posts are mostly hateful, racist, and bigoted?

            You are obviously a bright person. You are well read and seem to care about racial fairness. You champion the Noble Ccause by calling out the bigotry and racism. You deserve respect for this, sir.

            But, you also set a higher standard for whites, non
            -democrats, and non-liberals then the rest. You understand what this makes you, right?

            Look, I could give a sh-t about writing style or typos
            or poor grammer or bad spelling. Its the message, man,
            the message. And your regular message is mostly the
            bullied supression of anything YOU don’t like without
            out the decency to hear anyone out. You condemn people
            for who they vote for, or what they believe or where
            they live. Intolerant Bigot.

            Who gives a shit what you don’t like? What makes you so
            goddam righteous and special? Is it because of your
            color? If so, there’s nothing else to say here. I don’t do self-pity for racial birthrights.

            No one chooses their color. No one. Anyone that uses
            their color to disadvantage others is worse than the
            worst racist. I’ll help you kick the racist ass.

            Maybe you realize by now that ridicule, teasing, mocking, and name-calling rarely convinces anyone your way is better. It only confirms and reinforces hateful paradigms.

            At this point, unless you thrive on the giggles of other bigots and immature peers, you’ll get a lot more applause than tears if you step off this Rock right now.

            I have better things to do than trying to convert a
            hostile dickhead into a tolerable person. I might be
            wasting my time since you seem too proud to accept the
            challenge of being a better human.

            The good is there. Maybe I’m wrong. But everyone deserves a chance to be better and the helping hand to
            get there IF they want it. You don’t want it, I’m outa’ here. No more love notes and wasted hours

            I don’t anymore friends. I only give a shit in the hope of reciprocal concern and respect for the effort. Plus, I can always use a few more Get Out of Hell cards. If you must ridicule again for religious belief,
            good luck finding anyone that gives a crap about you.

            Besides, since we’re all trying to deal with the hands
            we’re dealt, no one needs another asshole in the joint
            to make things more difficult. Peace.

          • Hee-hee — if you have something on your mind, why don’t you just go ahead and say it. Don’t be shy!

            Where to to start? Oh yes, *I* care about what I say. I don’t expect anyone else to give what I say any more thought than they want to. Apparently, you not only wanted to object to my posts but you also felt yourself qualified and empowered (by God, perhaps?) to tell me how I should post my opinions. That makes you the interloper here — I merely commented on your opinions. I respected your right to offer them ‘as is’.

            Racism needs race to survive. Bigotry and discrimination do not, but they sure as hell flourish better in a racist environment. I object to nobody’s race, and I’ve never believed that the color of skin had anything whatever to do with intelligence, honesty, integrity or personal worth. That being said, there are historical realities that warrant discussion, especially when it relates to events that continue to the present or threaten to do so. If you are of white European ancestry (I have no real idea), you have every bit as much responsibility to recognize this fact as anyone else.

            There are many people who post here that I disagree with on many issues, and I don’t believe all of them to be bigots or racists. I also respect everyone’s right to vote for whomever they wish, even if it’s a nutty goober like Rand Paul, Alan West, or Michele Bachmann. I don’t try to invalidate their very existence or citizenship, but I’m not shy about giving my opinion and I apologize to nobody about that.

            You’re obviously wrong about me not being willing to ‘hear anyone out’ — I’ve listened to your self-righteous diatribe now for at least several thousand words. You may even notice that I paid attention. Whether you realize or not, you come off sounding like a pompous twit. People don’t respond to that very well either, and if you aren’t aware of that fact then YOU haven’t been paying attention — or ‘hearing others out’, as you call it.

            I’ve made my mistakes from time to time, and once in a while jumped the gun when responding to others. When that happens I’m perfectly willing to admit my mistake and apologize as warranted. I’ve done this quite a few times. As I said before, *I* care what I say.

            You have absolutely no idea what color my skin might be, and frankly I like it that way. This forces you to either a) make a silly assumption, or b) respond to what I say regardless of my skin color.

            I NEVER show disrespect for anyone’s religious beliefs. I don’t tolerate people using their religion to justify evil deeds against others, and I’m not afraid to point that out but quick. There is no such thing as a devout Christian who dons a white hood and marches with the KKK — there is only an evil person hiding behind the legacy of Christ. I often defend the religions of others here, and that even includes Muslims. But a Muslim hiding behind Mohammed while committing evil deeds is no better (or worse) than a Christian hiding behind Christ to commit evil.

            Finally, if you consider me a ‘belligerent dickhead’ then you must either respect my right to belligerent-dickheadedness or reveal yourself as a hypocrite who doesn’t believe his own words. I don’t always sling insults, and I enjoy humor, but this is a political site where people have strong opinions and rarely hold hands singing Kumbaya. The opinions run hot here — that doesn’t make them any less valid, regardless of what you like. I’ve been insulted in more ways than I can possibly enumerate, and I’ve witnessed truly mean-spirited insults and even death-threats slung at even the meekest of posters. I’m not one of the meek posters.

            You can do whatever you wish. I’m telling you that I’ll post as I see fit, and my style will not be affected by whatever YOU think it should be. Deal with it how you like or not at all, but that’s just the way it is.

          • Thasnk you, but you don’t need my permission to do anything, of course. Not your daddy. Thank God.

            Please don’t allow me to interfere with your comfort treating people the way you do, where you go to great lengths entertaining yourself with a warped sense of control. People love the agression, harrasment, intimidation and ridicule. Heavy on the ridicule. Especially easy prey are the newbs, right?

            Thankfully the keyboard offers a safe sense that there are no rules, no need to be decent, kind, honest or caring. You even mock a call to decency.Tht’s a new kind of messed up. It’s like Lord of the Flies at 10Mb/sec but without the campfire.

            What the hell have we become? No…this is what YOU have become and isn’t acceptable in a civilized world. Not even on a political site. There is no excuse. If you believe this is the new norm, uh-uh. not in this generation, rock star.

            You could have had an ally. I would have run the flank to beat down republicans with no facts, bigots and racists. But, but you have your standards LOL.

            Looking forward to calling you out on more unnecessary antagonzing, erroneous claims, false assumptions, and all the usual kiddy crap. There’s a real world outside the matrix and it isn’t controlled by geeks on blogs. See you around, cupcake. Have a nice day

          • See there? I knew you could get the hang of it if you tried. I don’t need an ally to help me ‘beat down Republicans’, racists or bigots. I don’t dislike Republicans just because they are Republican. In fact, there are I few I respect that I know personally, as well as some that I don’t know personally — such as Governor Christie. Beating people down isn’t one of my goals.

            I don’t need an excuse to post as I see fit, and I don’t expect to set a new norm. But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to change my style to suit your tastes. Feel free to ‘call me out’ when you feel you can correct my ‘erroneous claims’. You certainly haven’t offered anything of substance thus far.

            Who knows — you may even find that I agree with you on something. Not likely, perhaps, but stranger things have happened.

            Have a pleasant night, and don’t forget your prayers. And for God’s sake don’t neglect to wash.

          • I’ll be pompous and you’ll be condescending. That’ll work. It isn’t important that we agree. The new you isn’t quite as unrefined. enjoy

    • These five folks give Rednecks a really bad name, totally undeserved. I mean, the guys on Duck Dynasty and Swamp People would love to have any of them along – they’d make great gatorbait. You know, gators, like sharks, will eat just about anything, even floating crap like Michelle Bachman or Glen Beck.

      • Your point is well taken. I should qualify my dislike for slack-jawed, sister-humping, chicken-raping, rooster-licking redneck BIGOTS. I don’t want to be unfair to slack-jawed, sister-humping, chicken-raping, rooster-licking rednecks of upstanding character.

        • WhuHeSaid, Do you know where calling someone a redneck comes from? Before miners had air breathers and so on to help keep coal dust out of their lungs, they wore red scarfs around their necks, when the coal dust started getting heavy they would cover their nose and mouth with the red scraf so they wouldn’t inhale so much coal dust into their lungs. Because these were hard working men that took care of their families, I get angry everytime I hear the word used as insult to descripe lazy, illerate, racism type people which are in every state in this Country just in the South. Hillbilly comes from a group of goat herders owners in Scotland, they raised their billy goats on hills in Scotland and others started calling them Hillbillies. Neither redneck or hillbilly started as words used in insults but now that seems be the only people know how to use them is to insult. Sorry know I got off the subject.

          • Yes, I know about the origins of the word. Nowadays the term mean something a bit different. Believe me, I know all about hillbillies too — real ones.

            I don’t use the term as an insult because I have anything against coal miners — I use it as an insult because that’s the current common meaning of the word. I have nothing against country people or illiterate people either. My beef is with the kind of purposely ignorant people who still run around wearing white hoods and talking about a ‘master race’.

      • Don’t know about that Robert, don’t think the gators would have anything to with anyof the 5, gators would be afraid of getting their crazyness if they did. By the way the originial meaning of a redneck was a man who worked in the coal mines and wore a red scraf around his neck to cover his mouth and nose when the coal dust made it hard to breathe and to help keep the dust out of their lungs. Bet the #1 crazy doesn’t know that fact.

        • I didn’t, either. Very interesting how it could have assumed an entirely different meaning. Every time I see that picture of Michelle Bachman, it is scary how vacant her eyes look, as if she has no soul.

    • He put one group of rednecks that he shouldn’t have. The people in the Smokies, they may not like the President, his policies and other things about him but they won’t raise their guns against the Country just like they didn’t during war between the states, most of the men in East Tenneessee and Western NC fought for the Union not against it and they will do the same today. They do love their guns but up in the Mountains their guns are used to put meat on the table not to massacre people. This hillybilly thinks there are to many people with loose screws out there there fore gun control on several types of weapons are needed and unversial background checks on all gun buyers no matter where the gun is bought. For all you gun lovers, do you realize by not having unverisal back grounds you are helping to put guns in the hands of the very people you say you need a gun to protect against the criminals, also the fact that there are no background checks done at Gun shows today means that the person next to you buying one or more guns and lots of ammo could be one of the criminals that you are buying your gun to protect yourself against. REMEMBER NEXT YOU ARE AT A GUN SHOW THAT DOESN’T DO BACKGROUND, you could be robbed at home that night because the person standing next to you is a criminal or friend of a criminal who is buying a gun at the same time you are and could follow you home and steal that new gun the same day. As for the other four, they should have been put in straight jackets along time ago and locked away to protect them from their selves. Wonder who is takes care of Palin’s special need child now days?

  6. Assuming drones are used in urban areas using 50 rounds to shoot one down is going to cause major problems. As the old saying goes, what goes up must come down. Fifty bullets landing in an urban area is going to cause much destruction and maybe mass injury and death. The M16 (or AR15) has an effective range of over 500 meters. How many houses, cars, and people are there within 5 football fields of where you live?

  7. The president calls for his ultraliberal minions to join him in the godless slaughter of Jesus Christ and the advancement of eternal sin.
    CHARLOTTE, NC—With the savage roar of the heathen Democratic horde rising all around him, President Barack Obama delivered an incendiary speech Thursday night, commanding the ultraprogressive minions in attendance to help him “destroy Jesus and usher in a new age of liberal darkness that shall reign o’er the earth for a thousand years.”
    The thunderous 45-minute address—during which the president thanked America for a second term so that he could “finally kill Jesus once and for all, as well as all those who worship him”—was well received by the frenzied, wild-eyed audience, whose piercing chants of “Four more years!” and “Slaughter the believers!” echoed throughout the Time Warner Cable Arena.
    “My fellow Americans and godless infidels, I command you to join me as we cast an endless pall of far-left evil across the hills and valleys of our nation!” Obama bellowed from the stage, as thousands in attendance moaned in compliance and gyrated their hips and groins in a lascivious dance. “Together, as a barbarian people forged by the wicked flames of irreligiosity and united by visions of a liberal dystopia, we will rise up as one to scorch the earth with boundless amorality.”
    “The streets shall run red with the blood of forced sodomy, performed daily upon every American man, woman, and child!” the commander-in-chief shouted, froth forming around his mouth as the crowd threw hundreds of aborted fetuses onto the stage. “Die, Christians, die!”
    Slamming his fists on the lectern until his hands began to bleed; Obama proceeded to lay out a “three-point plan of sin and lechery” for his second term. If reelected, the president said, he would begin by banning organized religion entirely—starting with Christianity—and burning all churches to the ground, preferably “with their wretched, Jesus-loving congregants still huddled inside like rats.”
    As members of the audience violently tugged at their genitals and howled like sex-starved, atheist wolves, Obama stated that his administration would then seek to make free, taxpayer-funded abortions legal at any stage of pregnancy, even up to one full year after birth, in order to supply his newly created “federal stem-cell harvesting plants” with raw materials.
    In addition, the cackling president vowed to “end traditional marriage as we know it” by passing legislation that would allow only homosexuals to raise children, a longtime Democratic policy goal.
    “A glorious new age of sinister, unconstrained liberalism is dawning! Oh, dear Satan, I can feel it coursing through my veins at this very moment!” shrieked Obama, ripping off his shirt to reveal an ornate tattoo of a pentagram, with a different homosexual act positioned at each of the star’s five points. “Agnosticism, contempt for human life, and radical sexual experimentation shall rule the day! Any good, virtuous, family-values-oriented Christian Americans who seek to topple our magnificent liberal kingdom of eternal darkness will be powerless to stop us! We will crush them!”
    Added Obama, “Thank you, may Satan reward you all, and may God tremble in fear at the United States of America!”
    The president was then handed an unbaptized, orphaned newborn baby drenched in the blood of 666 slaughtered Christians, which he handed over to its new, gleefully squealing homosexual parents.

    • You are really crazy! Did Glenn Beck write this commentary?

      How can you possibly” QUOTE” all of this PURE GARBAGE, as if the Presidetn said it?

      This is definately another “Day in Crazy”!

    • I suggest you calm down and spend more time playing with your Mohammed Dress-up doll. Breathe slowly and deeply and mayhap a rational and less wordy thought will come to mind.

      (Or was that supposed to be a joke, farce, whatever, and if so, shouldn’t it be labeled as such for those of us who couldn’t recognize it?!)

    • You came to the wrong place. Posting such a delirious diatribe over at WND would earn you an honorary PhD (piled higher and deeper) at least. There aren’t really that many redneck, inbred mutants over here, so your alcohol-fueled rants will go largely unappreciated.

    • What nut house turned you loose or did you escape from it. How it happened doesn’t matter, but you better get back to it, it is long past time to take your meds. Better still start walking and don’ t stop at the edge of the cliff. Be sure you are holding the hand of Palin, and Bachmann and that one of them has Glenn Becks’s hand and the other one is holding Ted Cruz’s hand, you know the transplant from Canada to Texas.

  8. To think Palin might have been V.P. to a very old man in the W.H. She would be wise to hold on to the money Faus News paid her for she may never work again. For anyone sane anyway.

    • right jstsyn, especially the OLD MAN. Can you imagine? A young guy with NO EXPERIENCE is always sooooo much better. It’s entaining to watch the youngbloods feel their way around in the dark (without telling them the furniture moved-lol). NEWBS RULE!! well, kind of, when they actually go to work and talk to legislatures instead of hanging with rock stars.

  9. You forgot #6 TED CRUZ
    Cruz is a right wing extreme propagandist in a democracy. He appeals to the emotions, prejudices, and ignorance of the poorer and less-educated classes in order to gain power.
    Cruz usually opposes deliberation and advocate immediate, violent action to address a national crisis; he accuse moderate and thoughtful opponents of weakness. He exploits a fundamental weakness in democracy: because ultimate power is held by the people, nothing stops the people from giving that power to someone who appeals to the lowest common denominator of a large segment of the population.
    As a propagandist, he keeps repeating lies in order to make you believe that he is being factual. Propaganda is particular way of presenting a message, usually false to be blatantly biased in favor of his lies.
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”—-nazis Joseph Goebbels
    Cruz is the real bully along with neo con right wing Teaparty inspired wing nuts.

    • I read your comment, and share your concerns, about Cruz, and other T-Pot radicals.
      The harm the sequester will cause, is a direct result of them throwing a crow bar into
      the system. Not because they’re worried about the debt, they’re not. But because in their hearts they don’t believe in democracy. They are the antithesis of what has always made this Country a better place to live, work, and raise our families, than any place in the world.
      The facts are, they don’t believe in that America. They don’t believe America is the best
      anything, in the world. In fact, if it comes right down to it, just what do they believe in? And, that’s where the T-Pots, and that vast majority of their fellow citizens part ways.
      They are defeatists, in a Country full of optimists. Their favorite word is no!
      Back is forward, fear is the motivator, united is an ugly word, and power beyond the
      Constitution, is their goal. It is this, self centered mentality, that cuts contrary to who
      we are as Americans, that will be their undoing. The perfect example of insisting on just enough rope with which to hang themselves. Which they surely will.

  10. We should all thank God that none of these whack jobs are Democrats.

    Unfortunately, there are still a lot of idiots who vote for them, and hang on to every word they say.

  11. The sad thing about Michele Bachmann is that she can’t even see that she’s a walking contradiction [Intelligence Committee???????]; her biggest mistake is that she even ran in the first place, when she has barely enough sense to breath.

  12. Crazy is too soft a word! Insane is more like it. And do sarah and Michelle blog to each other to get insane in the same week?
