Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Totally embarrassing) made yet another year-end list. This time she is one of America's most loathsome in 2008. Go figure. When can we have Minnesotans on good lists? Do Web sites even make good lists anymore?
named Bachmann No. 47 on their list. If you don't know why, you've lost touch with Minnesota politics. Shame on you.
Here is what they had to say about Bachmann. This was after misspelling her first name (Michelle):
Charges: Exemplifies the simmering, all-American fascism lurking behind the forced smiles of uptight church ladies throughout "real America." Echoing Sarah Palin's alarming hints about "helping" the media do its job, Bachmann's casual call for a "penetrating" press investigation into "anti-Americanism" in congress was so fucking dumb it made Chris Matthews seem smart. Once it occurred to the Oral Roberts University graduate that calling for witchhunts against Democrats might be a tad extreme for election season, she decided to just pretend she didn't say it, and then she blamed Chris Matthews. Then she just blamed words. Then she denied it again. Then she won. Way to go, Minnesota's 6th.
Exhibit A: BACHMANN: Actually, that's not what I said at all. COLMES: Well, I'm just -- I'm reading your exact quote. BACHMANN: Actually that's not I said. It's an urban legend that was created. That isn't what I said at all. COLMES: We have -- it's on tape.
Sentence: Assigned to conduct her own "expose" on anti-American views, in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
Sarah Palin tops the list with John McCain winning a close second.
There could be more monumental quotes from our lovely congresswoman. She will be making three appearances on Fox News this evening and tomorrow morning. She will be on Sean Hannity's show tonight at 8:30 Central, Fox and Friends at 5:45 AM, and Fox Business at 6:05 AM. Stay tuned for the latest crazy!
Here is her Hardball moment:
