Why is this woman on the House Intelligence Committee?
 
2012-07-19 03:07:37 PM
Boehner said he hadn't seen the letter. When he was asked if he would remove Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee because of the issue, Boehner said: "I don't know that that's related at all."

Then you're just as stupid as she is

Yeah, if he wanted to back up his words, he would at minimum trash her committees. He should get a vote to kick her out of the House.

But Boehner won't do that. The man is a gigantic wimp.

Not a wimp, just subscribes to party before country.

Well I mean, still a wimp, but in this case it's more of a case of a craven jackass refusing to make the GOP suffer because of something that is actually and legitimately outrageous, and instead offering up a simpering halfhearted rebuke.

Now, now. Even an idiot like Bachmann deserves due process.

The first step would be reporting an official ethics complaint to the House Ethics committee, that her borderline slanderous accusations were bringing discredit to the House. After they come back with a "yeah", then you can defenestrate her.

The House intelligence committee is charged with the task of evaluating intelligence, and in a ratio scale analysis, you need a known, fixed "zero" point.

"They're either all in on the islamization of America or are too stupid to know the difference.

Muslims are fundamentally dangerous, and islamists should be rounded up and preferably killed if they resist."


These people are real.

It's also noteworthy to add that McCain stood up on the floor yesterday and gave a speech condemning these irrational attacks. Although many Republicans participated in this "anti-American" and "Obama is foreign" sentiment four years, McCain never stooped that low. He didn't do it then, and he's not doing it now.

Contrast this with Mitt Romney, who just recently started adding "Obama's ideas are foreign" to his stump speeches, and uses the word "foreign" several times per speech now, in reference to Obama. The man has absolutely no shame and no class.

Dear god, I clicked one of the links. There are no mirrors in this room. Did my face just melt off?

It's especially sad that people are claiming that none of Bachmann's detractors (which is everyone) has bothered to refute her claims. Gee, I wonder why that is. Couldn't be because Bachmann never gave any specifics in the first place.

"Ignatius_crumbcake farks sheep and ejaculates on the Constitution!"

"Yeah, uh, I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Do you have any sort of proof, hell, even suspicious behavior, to bolster this accusation? Because otherwise your needlessly attacking a nice person"

"SEE? YOU CAN'T REFUTE MY FACTS! I WIN!"

And yet if I were to shoot these people in the face, I'd be the one going to jail.

And yet the GOP will retain control of the House most likely. That means that a majority of districts in this country are filled with people who are terrifyingly ignorant or worse; malevolently complicit.

He is right that it's pretty dangerous. It's dangerous that a party would give such a person that kind of power and follow such a denouncement with feckless inaction. It's dangerous that such power is held by actively promoting this fringe idiocy. It's dangerous because this is precisely why we are so decided in this country.It's dangerous because every other historical analog to this kind of rhetoric, when unchecked, leads to the most evil manifestations of human behavior.

"[D]on't know that that's related?" Fark you John Boehner. Take this woman out of any position of relative power within the House. Anything less is passive consent at best.

I'd like to see an ambitious US attorney somewhere find charges that would stick to her for this.

And then I'd like to see her strung up.

There's also the advantage that she could could go on national TV and reveal every single bit of top secret classified information that's discussed in the intelligence committee, and no one would believe a bit of it because a certifiable nutcase is saying it.

Is she facing any competition from a Democrat this year? I know she won handily last time around, but before that her wins were much narrower. She's turned the derp up to 11 and I wonder if this might signal the end.

Which is why despite disagreeing with McCain on many issues, I have always held some degree of respect for the man. Can't say that about most Republicans. Sadly, I think McCain is among the last of a dying breed.

What's really scary about Muslins is that they don't all look the same. Some of 'em look just like you and I. What we really need is a way to outwardly identify them. I mean, not all of 'em wear the berkas or skullys. Maybe we should pass a law that requires them to wear like an armband with a yellow crescent or somethin'.

I had the unfortunate experience of delivering pizza to a Muslim household at the same time they were watching a CNN special about Muslims in America... of course as I'm standing there some redneck is spouting off at the mouth about how Muslims don't belong in this country... "I don't even know what they're doing here in the first place..." I can't tell you how embarrassed I felt when the old grandmother on the couch looked back and saw my pale face in the hallway holding the door open.

Boehner is a farking idiot. A reporter ask him a serious question and his Weeners was "Why don't you wear socks when you wear a tie?"

Apparently it's ok for republicans to cut public funding for medicare & social security, while biatching about Obama, and then state it's not ok to cut billions off the defense budget. clearly republicans know what really matters to the american people, farking flag pins.
