They have same-sex marriage in Switzerland! hooray!
 
2012-05-08 09:23:50 PM  
Ummm....wow. They can have her as far as I'm concerned.
 
2012-05-08 09:24:54 PM  
She's just trying to be with her bank accounts.
 
2012-05-08 09:25:05 PM

Sooo, does she now claim dual-citizenship, or has she defected? o_o'
 
2012-05-08 09:38:12 PM  
That ought to cause some good Teabagger head explosions.
 
2012-05-08 09:38:41 PM  
Call me when she travels to apply for Martian citizenship.
 
2012-05-08 09:45:06 PM  
can we kick her off the Intel committee now? IIRC dual citizenship makes you ineligible for a security clearance

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Call me when she travels to apply for Martian citizenship.


I'm pretty sure people born there are automatically citizens.

Sounds socialist.

Aw, RATS.

beautiful -well done.
 
2012-05-08 10:37:45 PM  
Can we deport her now?
 
2012-05-08 10:41:37 PM  
Don't they have socialized medicine in Switzerland? And legal euthanasia?

WO GEBURTSURKUNDE WO!?

Paris1127: And legal euthanasia?


If we're lucky it's also mandatory.
 
2012-05-08 11:03:44 PM  
Please, please elect her

/keep her
//hug her
///pet her
////call her George
//just don't let her come back here
 
2012-05-08 11:04:05 PM  
She's all yours, Europe.
 
2012-05-08 11:06:41 PM  
Is it even legal for a Congressperson to have joint citizenship?

Seems like a conflict of interest to have someone with divided loyalties in the government.
 
2012-05-08 11:24:07 PM  
Maybe she just wants to spread the Good Word to all those heathens over there who no longer believe.
 
2012-05-08 11:25:14 PM  
Out of all the places...I admit, my knowledge of foreign countries has slipped since it was force-fed to me during American indoctrination rituals during my formative years, but isn't that one of those places that lets people do what they want?
 
2012-05-08 11:27:52 PM  
Does she need any help packing her bags? I'm available whenever.
 
2012-05-08 11:29:21 PM  
So she's part Socialist now, right??
 
2012-05-08 11:31:53 PM  
Arthur Honegger, a reporter for public broadcaster Schweizer Fernsehen, told POLITICO the Swiss consulate in Chicago has confirmed that the former Republican presidential candidate became a citizen March 19.

The composer?
 
2012-05-08 11:35:27 PM  
Dear Switzerland: how much would it take for you to keep her?
 
2012-05-08 11:38:01 PM  
If she bails to Europe, does she still owe her campaign debts?
 
2012-05-08 11:44:25 PM  

Nadie_AZ: If she bails to Europe, does she still owe her campaign debts?


I say forgive them f she never comes back

/hell, I'd chip in to help pay it off

Hey Michele, you know, your kids now have to serve in the Swiss Army, oh, and I hope you do too!

By the way...

Loss of US Citizenship.

"Congresswoman Bachmann's husband is of Swiss descent, so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978. However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family,"

Mom, you've what's wrong with the country and we want out.

Ha ha ha! Switzerland, you neutral bastards! You can have her! She's your problem now!

My family were chased out of Switzerland over 200 years ago.

We held a grudge for a long time. The plot was laid out many years ago. It's taken a lot of patience and careful planning to find just the right person and get her mated to just the right, uh, man. Thousands have devoted time and money to the plot...always fearing someone would leak the plan and the Swiss Army ninjas would be unleashed on us.

But we did it. The long game has been played. Hah!

Take that Switzerland.

Revenge is always served cold in Switzerland.

Someone get Sanka to tell her the right foot is not the Swiss foot.

Well, people hear cuckoo clock sounds whenever she speaks, anyway. Only difference is that when she speaks in Switzerland, those sounds may be coming from an actual cuckoo clock.
 
2012-05-09 01:44:18 AM  
She needs her security clearance revoked. Stat.

Also, when in the entire history of the United States of America has anyone who was even for a brief moment considered a front runner for their party's nomination for president promptly gone and gotten themselves dual citizenship with a foreign state? It seems pretty disloyal.
 
2012-05-09 01:44:55 AM  
Are you sure that the USA isn't the one trolling Switzerland?

\Sorry guys
\\Better you than us.
 
2012-05-09 01:51:09 AM  
If the US went to war with Switzerland, whose side would she be on?

Us?

Or them?
 
2012-05-09 01:51:23 AM  
Please, take her.

"It's tough to find a place not to like in Switzerland," said Bachmann. "But here I am!"

/I really wanted her to say that.
 
2012-05-09 02:00:21 AM  
She'll now have to change her favorite font from Comic Sans to Helvetica. Does she realize this?
 
2012-05-09 02:01:30 AM  
Just imagine what the GOP would do if Franken got dual citizenship somewhere. Faux News anchors would be actually foaming at the mouth.
 
2012-05-09 02:02:04 AM  
If some nationally known democrat had done this, this would be the top story in the right wing blogodome and this thread would already be 500 comments long.

What makes a person turn neutral?
 
2012-05-09 02:06:10 AM  
What? She can get out of here, but I can't? I want to be an escaping rat too! Damn my marrying a multi-generational American. Damn other countries that have restrictive immigration policies. *shakes tiny fist*

I agree. Not only that but she seems to like the socialism of Switzerland and openly admits it. Frankly she needs to be removed from Congress simply due to her conflict of interest in national matters.
 
2012-05-09 02:08:45 AM  
WHAT THE HELL?
