Michele Bachmann sounds alarm about "suicide-bomber conference" in Chicago

The Atlantic trumpets the return of 'Crazy' Michele, but really, has there ever been another version?
The Atlantic's headline says it all -- "Good News, Liberals: 'Crazy' Michele Bachmann Is Back."

Their evidence? Bachmann sounding the alarm during a speech last week about an upcoming "suicide-bomber conference" in Chicago. She called on President Obama to shut down the "subversive" gathering, warning listeners, "We could wake up some morning wondering, 'How in the world did America come under sharia law?'"

During her speech, Bachmann didn't mention that the conference -- organized by a sharia law-advocating, yet avowedly nonviolent Islamic group named Hizb ut-Tahrir America --  had actually been canceled a week earlier after the host venue was besieged by calls of protest from readers of the anti-Islamist blogger Pamela Geller. But Michele has never been one to let facts get in the way of a good, crazy yarn, has she?

In an effort to explain the reemergence of 'Crazy' Michele, the Atlantic's Molly Ball writes:

Sharia law: The stuff of Bachmann's nightmares.
Bachmann has little to lose and little to fear these days. Her presidential hopes have been dashed, she has little hope of moving into the leadership of the House (a previous attempt was rebuffed), and she has virtually no prospects of higher office in her blue home state. Her seat in Congress, though, is safely Republican -- even more so since last year's redistricting. And so she is free to make her bid for national attention the best way she knows how: by calling attention to secret, if not quite factual, anti-American plots.
But let's face it, Molly: the crazy Michele has always been here among us, saying outrageous things, so it's not like her "suicide-bomber conference" comment last week represented some sort of return to a long-lost form. You and your colleagues at The Atlantic probably just weren't paying close enough attention to notice.

I read the thread and did not put words in your mouth.  I simply stated that Ellisons opinion that 16 year olds should be able to vote doesn't qualify as crazy in the context of "comparable to MB nuts".  I think the readers were looking for a bold faced lie based in pure delusion.

Andy H: you're putting words in my mouth. Follow the thread. I admitted nobody is crazier than MB. As to your other argument, no I don't think 16 year olds should be able to drive, either.

You're joking right?  That comment doesn't even warrant mention next to the bat shit crazy things that spew from her mouth on a daily basis.  Old enough to drive a 2 ton car at 80 miles an hour, but not to vote?  That's at least a topic for debate.  You need to do better.

Re-read what vitajex posted. He doesn't ask for a scenario, just a crazy MN democrat. Here you go: How about six months ago when Ellison suggested 16 year olds should be able to vote? Remember, I will always beat you.

 Notice you still won't cite an example of anything pretty crazy Keith Ellison did you pathetic liar.  People like you and kirk are why everyone knows Republican are a bunch of idiots. Please just cite one quote where Keith Ellison says some sort of movie or tv show is part of a secret agenda you lying idiot.

Note:  The reason dumbo here doesn't cite an example of Keith Ellison's "pretty crazy" ways is because he is lying.   Actual quote of crazy person Michele Bachmann: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of the LION KING  for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”

Nobody is as crazy as MB. Ellison is pretty crazy though. He rarely gets pointed out.
