Michele Bachmann named to Time's 'Most Influential' list

She's really influential.
Last week, Time Magazine ran a cover story that asked, "Is Hell Dead?"

Today, it named Rep. Michele Bachmann to it's "Most Influential" list, and got Rush Limbaugh to write the hagiography.

Make of that what you will.

Time's editors made the final selection, but they asked readers to use social to offer their own ranking. Bachmann caught wind of this opportunity, and for days now, she's been begging her Facebook fans to vote for her.

By gaming the system, she came in at No. 45 this morning. That's one place higher than Barack Obama, but one place lower than Hillary Clinton.

Here's Limbaugh:

Far from being the fringe outlier depicted by the mainstream media -- and all too often by some on the right -- she is a strong spokeswoman for unapologetic conservatism.

She is neither extreme nor unreasonable.

Bachmann tweeted the obligatory "I'm humbled" message this morning:

Michele Bachmann: Humbled.
That's another campaign in the bag. What's next?

Stop the real thing you should notice is that people are dumb enough to vote for Bachman, an idiot. I can't believe my state voted her in.

and not to forget,, Time magazine's honors CAN be dubious,,as in the 1930's the MAN OF THE YEAR was Adolph Hitler,,,and don't forget how ihfluential HE was...

I'd just like to point out that this list is an irrefutable work of empirical evidence gathering and intensive scientific research.

Just take a look at #40- I mean, just think of how many people you know who have gone and sealed themselves up in an underground cavern for weeks just because they were 'influenced' by those Chilean miners.

Meanwhile: Klobuchar and Obama have gas prices at 5 bucks a gallon as promised.

First gas is $3.85 not $5, and it was a higher under Bush who by pure coincidence came from a family who made money in oil.

remember,, the prez is investigating the oil co.s as to WHY? the price of gas is what it is. before him,, we were told ' none of your damn buisness,, be glad we don't raise it higher.'

It's $5 in other states pal and the price keeps growing, pretty soon it will surpass what it was "under Bush". Obama hasn't done anything beneficial to this country yet; don't act like he has.
