4: Michele Bachmann

Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) makes her near-weekly appearance on this list for her new strategy to repeal Obamacare: Let God handle it.

In an interview with James Dobson on Tuesday, Bachmann reiterated her crazy theory that President Obama “will ultimately be forced to repudiate his own signature piece of legislation,” before veering into even loonier territory.

“And I think before his second term is over, we’re going to see a miracle before our eyes, I believe God is going to answer our prayers and we’ll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare,” Bachmann said. “We serve a mighty God and I believe it can happen.”

Of course, if Bachmann was correct that God pushed her — along with Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Perry — into the 2012 presidential race, then it seems pretty clear that He was doing His best to ensure that Barack Obama would win re-election, thus protecting health care reform. And if God really wanted to undo Obamacare, then He probably would’ve helped out with House Republican’s previous 37 attempts to repeal the law. But considering that Bachmann was last seen on this list complaining that the IRS will deny conservatives the Obamacare coverage that she hates so much, it’s probably best not to read too deeply into the logic behind her ramblings.

    Hypocrisy, inconsistency, deceit and hyperbole must be the favorite Republican middle names. However, as a loyal Democrat, i endorse their determination to self-destruct and their persistence on pursuing issues that have nothing to do with what they ought to be doing. Instead of focusing on the economy, job creation, the dismal state of our infrastructure, improving education, and ensuring Obamacare is successful in improving our quality of life and in reducing the operating costs incurred by corporate America, these elected officials official remain focused on demonization and witchhunts designed to satisfy the thirst for blood of a tiny minority at the expense of mainstream Americans. All I have to say is: keep up the good work, contrary to what the Tea Party believes most Americans can think logically and know he is working for them and who is against them.

    Using the words “logic” and “Bachmann” in the same sentence is a stretch, even when referring to her sketchy logic.

      How about using the words, Bachmann and intelligence committee in the same sentence?

          Bachmann and intelligence are certainly oxymorons.

    Is Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) saying that Harry Reid was correct when he said that Mitt Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years?

    Ya know, I’m starting to think it’s a game…who can “out-crazy” the other. Beck and Bachmann certainly earn their stripes for consistency, they’re on this list almost weekly, but for flat-out nuts it’s gonna be tough to beat the “weather weapon”. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have our weeks’ winner…

    Following right wing “logic”, if the country has been raped, then do nothing, just like women should carry their rapist’s baby. Not a problem.

    Why didn’t someone educated remind Gohmert that the Boston Tea Party occurred in 1773, 3 years BEFORE the Declaration of Independence. If there had been an IRS, it would have been one of the British King’s agencies, NOT AN AMERICAN AGENCY. And by the way, the British military DID try to go after the perpetrators of the Boston Tea Party!!

    But then Gohmert is a very good example of what would happen if the Republicans continue to cut education budgets.

      They are super good at it in the state of Texas (Gohmert’s state). The lowest educational scores are from that state, and their governor (Perry) is working hard to destroy even more of the educational system there! Tea party governors are doing this in several states possibly hoping people will become stupid enough to keep voting for these “geniuses”.

    Wouldn’t it be fun to be a fly on the wall so you could hear one of Michele Bachmann’s prayers. “Oh Lord save us from these heathen Democrats, and strike them all dead. I have a list of the names you need Lord. Thank you Lord. Amen”

    It’s absolutely appalling that we’ve allowed numb nut conspirators and lower brain mutton heads a voice in public affairs but even worse that the media moguls are constantly feeding us these lame brains for nothing more than monetary profit. Those of us who know, have been trying to warn America that a certain political group is totally insane.. well we’re wrong, it’s an epidemic and has included every idiot on the hill. Maybe if some samaritan would create a smart pill, but no.. these meat sacks would use them like candy because no matter how hard you try.. You can not cure chronic stupidity.

    From the nationalmemo website

    “without the kind of propaganda, ultra-partisanship and overwrought ideology…”

    Interesting. That’s all I seem to find on this website.

    This government control of tornados cannot possibly be true BECAUSE we all know that it is God punishing us for enacting socialized medicine, ending rather than starting new wars, and/or even having the audacity to TRY to implement reasonable background checks on gun purchases. Duh! (Also, please keep any sharp objects away from Mr. Jones.)

    It is frightening to know grown adults believe the garbage the GOP spews out. We better get the truth out to the people who have at least two brain cells to rub together so the nut case GOP doesn’t take over our country.

    Alex Jones is an idiot. I really want him to say that to anyone who works at The Weather Channel. Can you see him telling Jim Cantorre that the government has been creating tornadoes, twister, hurricans, floods, droughts & wild fires.

    When people spout out such wild rantings with the absolute belief in their truth, then there is absolute evidence that the government is putting some sort of psychotropic drug in our drinking water. While only a few are affected by it at this stage, we should all put on our aluminum foil helmets to protect ourselves. It only a matter of time until we truly become a planet of the living dead and insanity becomes the new paradigm. I wonder if that pretty much explains the Republicans in Congress. Have they all passed that point of no return, or is the government distributing an antidote to Democrats?
