Michele Bachmann named "Woman of the Year" by WND [THE 2012 BACHMANN READER]

bachmann women rect 2.jpg
Bachmann began 2012 as a presidential candidate, and ended it about 4,000 votes away from being a former Congresswoman.
WND, a conservative news site that takes Bradlee Dean's ramblings seriously, named Michele Bachmann its 2012 "Woman of the Year."

WND's Taylor Rose cites Bachmann's "extraordinary dedication to America's founding principles and steadfast defense of the Constitution" as reasons she won the award, which is given to the woman who "did the most to represent goodness, womanliness, perseverance and character" and "had an impact on wider American, and global opinion."

Whatever you think of that, it's been a remarkably twisting-and-turning year for Bachmann, who began 2012 as a surprisingly serious presidential candidate (she fizzled shortly after the calendar turned), drew scorn from her own party for refusing to back off allegations the Muslim Brotherhood has made "deep penetration" into the U.S. government, barely fought off a challenge for her congressional seat from Jim Graves, and wrapped up the year as a voice in the wilderness alleging on far-right apocalyptic Christian radio that President Obama supports Sharia law. And we devoted more digital ink to covering all that than we did to probably any other person.

To commemorate The First Lady of Cray-Cray's memorable 2012, we put together the City Pages 2012 Michele Bachmann Reader, arranged in chronological order with the newest posts on top. So kick back, read up, and remember -- there's a not-too-distant possible world where 2012 ends with this woman as Leader of the Free World.

Aaron, starting to think you've got a crush on her. Checked your history.. Nada about Bonnie Bleskachek who ran a rampant sexually abusive dept. If Michelle or omg.. a male had done half of what Bleskachek had done they would have at least retired yet union rules kept her around and she's now an investigator. 

Man up and start reporting on the real scandals in MN instead of this masturbation fantasy you have with Michelle.. Ya she's a bit of a nut, but just barely balances out KoBlo and Franken or Ellison. .. that's 3 uber libs to one R winger.

As a conservative to the right of Atilla The Hun.....Michelle Bachman is a pain in the ass, and I can't stand her. However she does tend to drive you wing nuts crazy. So on the balance....

Possibly, but some believe the exact thing of the other side of the spectrum, i.e. Pelosi is coo-coo and hateful. It's not just a one dimensional thing even though many certainly believe so on both sides.

There's no shortage of passionate women who are making a difference without being coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs®.

Trying to make a difference is one thing, Christopher. Being hateful and out of touch with reality is quite another.

Why not? She is a strong woman who is outspoken and fights for what she believes in whether we agree with her or not. Many American women and men agree with her. Many don't. I would be more freaked out if went to someone apathetic. I would take a Bachmann or Pelosi over a Kardashian or Lohan any day. Be thankful they a focusing on women trying to make a difference regardless of their stance!!!

WND and Michele Bachmann were made for each other. It's impossible to tell whether they're more crazy or cynical.  I tend to think WND, or at least founder Joseph Farah, are more cynical.  Doing stuff like running Chuck Norris' ghostwritten opinion pieces as cogent  analysis is more of a cynical (if accurate) assessment of the intelligence of one's audience than a crazy move.  Farah's frothy mix of racism, sexism, religious fanaticism, American Exceptionalism, Gay-bashing, climate-denying, nearly Flat-Eartherism; it rakes in the money from a certain segment, and Rep. Bachmann is adept at working that side of the street, too.  In some ways, at least up to this point, there can be some honor among thieves, I guess.  So it's kind of nice they gave her their award.

@LilBKFAN @melliemroszak I will not be ringing in the new year with anyone who is anti-America.

@Christopher Smith Bachmann is the exact same as Kim Kardashian.  She is nothing but a vapid idiot who devotes her life to getting on TV.  The only thing she ever does is try to make herself more famous.  She's never written a bill or advanced a cause beyond Michele Bachmann should be more famous.   She's a mean evil bigot.

@MicheleBachmann @Christopher Smith Wow MB, a post without invective or dirty words. 

Yup, she's a tool, and almost as useful as Ellison, Franken or Koblo.. none of which has written any real legislation other than feel good "lets ban bad toys" Trillions in debt, trillion dollar deficit.. ya.. lets worry about toys..
