Comment of the Day: Sick burn on Bachmann

hawkingbachmann.jpg
Earlier this year, a parody piece featuring fake quotes from Michele Bachmann criticizing Stephen Hawking's alleged flip-flopping about his theory of black holes fooled some people.

In response to our post about Bachmann going beyond parody in a new audio clip, commenter Jeff Skinner used Hawking -- who has been wheelchair-bound for four decades thanks to ALS -- became the latest person to use the famous theoretical physicist take a shot at Bachmann.

It's a bit off-color, but it's pretty good:

Ouch! Skinner's rip isn't entirely accurate, though, as we did give Bachmann props last summer for her surprisingly reasonable views regarding the perils of U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war.

Lol. I can't believe some of you are attacking city pages for its journalism or lack there of. There's so many other news sources you can turn to, is city pages your main source for local and world news? Now that's funny.

That was definitely worth making a headline. What the fuck do you guys even do all day CityPages? I'm sure there is ACTUAL news happening somewhere in our cities

Thanks for the props, City Pages. It makes me happy that you enjoyed the joke, although, I believe "Sick burn" is slightly extreme. I prefer to think of the comment in 'roast' terms. Not sure if I wrote the joke or if it's plagiarized. I write a lot of jokes (usually right out of the shower while looking in the mirror) but that particular joke was delivered by the sandman. I fell asleep during The Big Bang Theory marathon and when I awoke, the joke was there. As luck would have it, that very morning City Pages had posted another nutty 'Bachmann-ism' that opened herself up to lighthearted ridicule. As for Hawking..he is a lovable guy with a great sense of humor. I doubt he would be offended, but if he, or others with similar physical conditions, find the comment hurtful, I offer a sincere apology. J.S. Peace-Love-Rock

Best comment of the day thought process: crap its monday, how can we drum up some hits? Take a readers witty comment and doll it up, the readers won't even notice that we are struggling. *high fives ensue*

Change your name form City Pages to Bachmann Obsession. What will you do when she is finally gone? I hope you are busy working overtime trying to find a new conservative loony. I don't know what all of the cultural liberals will do when there is nothing to talk about. Certainly not single payer health care or living wage jobs. Why get bogged down with those unwinnable ideas when you can bitch about a loony?

Yeah this is just great journalism. All the one sided right wing republican bashing and left wing empathizing is pathetic. News flash all government is corrupt not just the republicans. If you would like to have a real discussion about politics I would be delighted to enlighten you. Hint: democrats and republicans are flooded with psycho and sociopaths which is inevitable when you have positions of power over other people.

Wow.  It never stops with you people.   The cheap shots from the lamestream media are the number two reason Michele can't wait for retirement.  Obviously avoiding criminal charges is her favorite but this kind of crap is a close second.


Michele and Marcus can't wait to be out of the public eye so they can really focus on their passions.   Michele will spend her days watching for secret gay propaganda in episodes of Pokemon and Marcus will spend hours with confused young gay men talking about their homosexual desires.  Leave him be Michele, don't disturb Marcus and the boys.  They are doing God's work.   God's sexy, dirty, work.

Why do you think people masturbate to people they hate?    Are you trying to tell us you jerk off to Obama pictures?

Like Emmer is some reasonable guy? You make it sound like Bachmann's the only crazy one in the Republican Party.

If you don't like City Pages, there are other websites you can read that will provide you with information and not make you feel pathetic.
