This Week In Crazy — May 24th Edition

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.
