The Gift That Keeps On Giving: Michelle Bachmann

When we are living in a world in which we may be staring down the barrell of a nuclear catastrophe, in which there are actual human beings trying to blame an 11-year-old girl for her own gang rape (really), and the governor of Michigan has decided to give himself the power to take over any city or school district and run it like his own private banana republic (really), it's a relief to know that Michele Bachmann will keep opening her ignorant lunatic mouth and saying crazy nonsense to lighten the mood.

Speaking at an event held by the Republican Liberty Caucus on Saturday, Bachmann invoked the founding fathers and offered a historical account in lauding the early presidential primary state.

"What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty," she said, according to Politico. "You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals of man in 5,000 years of recorded history."


Ooooyyyy!

I thought that was in Massachusetts.

C'mon..that was the interviewer's fault. They just needed to warm her up with a simple 'yes or no' question, or one with perhaps two choices {one would be the correct answer} to select her answer from to get her cognitive fires stoked up. For example "Mrs. Bunker, is genocide a good thing or a bad thing??".

It may be time to get worried! I undstand that the GOP plans to use the DWTS voting format in 2012!

In all fairness, Joe-I am debating a daily feature where I use a different "Where's Waldo??" each day-however, just substitute 'Waldo' with 'Obama.'

Is there anyway this country can agree to embrace a person that isn't either an uppity empty-suit elitist, out-of-touch prig; or an arguably attractive, but most definitely helium-headed 'fresh face.'

C'mon-if you elect ME for the gig, I understand you can at least get a bacon cheeseburger and cold beer 24 hours a day at the White House. And there is no way a certain Moammar would be thumbing his nose at us, while spiking our oil prices. Speed limits may also be raised a bit once I OK additional domestic drilling/alternative energy funding grants to ease congestion and blood pressure issues. I may only vacation in Hawaii, {insert GASP!!!} once per year.

Now it is time for my 'treasure bath.'

"Now it is time for my 'treasure bath.'"

I'll bet you rub that dollar everywhere.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

Yeah...but you wouldn't be cool enough to see who ends up with it. But she 'performed' to the song "Jessie's Girl." BTW-how is Pi Day, Nerd!! And if you are still pretending to be a goalie....count on me to pull up for a slapshot during a shoot-out anytime...scoring a goal would be merely secondary to getting a nice C-minor tone off your grill.

BTW-did you actually say in this forum when YOUR lakes froze??? I want to hear more about your lakes, Major Tom!!

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

BTW-if you had your own blog, and weren't as delusional as bat-shit, I would debate you there. I think many of us have had enough of your bullshit. Put up a real name, and facts, and cut the smarmy shit...or expect me to crash you into the boards....Enough of your smarmy bullshit.

Liberal Elite said...

Look.. I played hockey in HS and college, usually at defense. I was never all that good, but I did play, and some at a fairly advanced level.... had some fun, didn't get hurt. NBD

As for "my lakes", I don't own the lakes. It's like saying "my neighborhood" or "my town"... NBD

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

So when pushed for actual facts/clarification, you dump the puck, and get off the ice...

You know, I wouldn't say this unless I met you in person, and broke bread to try to understand you, but is there any chance you are really Will Farrell/Andy Kauffman, and are playing the best "character" I've seen??? I mean, really, I sit down sometimes and try to make up fictional sh{ew}t to compete with some of the gibberish you try to float....and I just can't top it. I can't beat it. i can't.

'Sea kelp'-it isn't just something that floats throughout the Pacific-it is a suggestion from me to you if you actually start to listen closely....

noanonymousguesses said...

Is he Andy Kauffman??? That would be so cool!!!

Two Sentz said...

You know Bill, you and LE were both at the original crab cake cookoff at Melanie's house.

Liberal Elite said...

@BL "BTW-if you had your own blog,"

I told you I had a blog, and that you are not welcome there. Did you forget EVERYTHING we talked about at lunch that day?

...or were you just focused on propositioning my daughter?? Yea.. She told me...


@BL "So when pushed for actual facts/clarification, you dump the puck, and get off the ice..."

Nah… There was nothing untrue in what I posted. If I shorten "the lakes next to my waterfront properties" to "my lakes", it doesn't make it BS…

And I told you about those at lunch too... So why the big act Bill?

And there was nothing at all untrue about what I posted about hockey. In fact, it's not the least bit incredible, so your reaction is curious at best.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

Yeah...whenever I am told I am not welcomed somewhere during dinner I will start to have conversation with anyone-did you note I also started telling my jokes to the souveneir porcelein I bought!!

And you should be ashamed for bringing your own daughter into this conversation-she would be embarassed, and you should be ashamed.That is why nobody wants to talk with you at the dinner table to start with.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

I know about the CC fundraiser...I think it was after the dinner we speak of...and we did not speak that evening-i was busy cooking-he dealing guano. I prefer to remember it as the night I met ATGR for the first time-a much more quality individual, and friend.

afterthegoldrush said...

Thank you, Bill! The feeling is mutual.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

I think it was about 114 degrees above the boiling peanut oil, and peanut oil accessories, I was using. I still think I had a chance if anyone would have voted for me, including my own self, instead of pounding the chilly beers on the porch before the polls were pre-maturely arbitarily, yet deliciously, closed...

afterthegoldrush said...

I still liked Demone's(not to be confused with the guy on 'Fast Times') SPICY crab cakes!

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

I love D'Man..but that was a hate crime against crab cakes!!

BTW...has one considered that if we have our own oil rigs, around tasty Gulf fish//shellfish, that may catch fire for any number of reasons-wouldn't it make sense for one of us to ride back to town and get a shTload of lemons!!!

Liberal Elite said...

"BTW-how is Pi Day, Nerd!! "

Just great, thanks. My old college cheer has Pi in it, well, the first 7 digits of it.

And I once invited the Chudnovsky brothers to come and give a lecture on Pi, and they came! Mountains of PI, man, Mountains of Pi.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

Sorry, LE..you lost me at "I've always been an ass-pie." Maybe you do have a brain injury. And if so, I'm sorry. But tell Mohammed, Jugdish, Sydney and Clayton I said 'hi' at the old college reject sofa reunion.

Liberal Elite said...

And I thought you were going to claim that I made the whole thing up... That's a big relief.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

No-I genuinely abhored your company, almost from the start, and likely would have had a more pleasant conversation with a Taliban warlord....I still want to think I was the one dreaming.

BILL LIVINGSTON said...

BTW-I had to wait until a lunch time to be so bored I would actually Google this..."Chudnovsky Brothers"???? Yeah you could say I was bored during cinner {and it was dinner, not lunch, among other wonderful mis-statements that you make}....

Chudnovsky Brothers??? Are you F'in kidding me??? And clarifying semantics about "your lakes" now merely becoming "general lakes on your waterfront property" make people living paycheck to paycheck just downright pissed. You take your Chudnovsky Brothers-I'll take my Allman Brothers-and if we are lucky we will never be stuck in a malfunctioning elevator with Celine Dion muzac skipping in the background, which is loosely my visual/auditory interpretation of Hell.
