GhostFish: You forgot gay/elitist/racist/kenyan/antichrist.


Thank you.

Britney Spear's Speculum: God i hope she loses her seat.


Unfortunately, I doubt it. As gerrymandered as her district is, and considering that her constituency is the type to vote just to "piss of the libs". I know nothing of her opponent, so I could be wrong.

Good thing holding her accountable for this in any way would play into some kind of "liberal media" narrative, so she just gets to keep spouting whatever wild crap gets her elected time and again.

According to a student in her district, she's in more trouble than many think. I also placed a bounty for a Bachmann sign so I can deface it in my libby-lib-lib office. Fun times.

impaler: Because People in power are Stupid: "PolitiFact came out and said that everything I said was true" in last debate

OMG. I can't believe I missed that.

Isn't it obvious? They idolize an alternate-Earth Ronald Reagan, believe fervently in an alternate-Earth Constitution, and are campaigning hard against an alternate-Earth Barack Obama for making that alternate-Earth economy tank, reneging on that promise to pull out of that alternate Afghanistan, and not doing anything about that alternate-Earth Osama bin Laden. She was obviously reading an alternate-Earth Politifact.

Not only is their divorce from reality total, they took out a restraining order too.

meat0918: Thanks a lot AP.

Make a print edition then a full edition.

By having such a quota, you gave her preferential treatment that kept her in the primary longer than necessary, plus gives her a better chance at winning her district again because you didn't call bullshiat "bullshiat"


I wish she would have won the primary and gone on to the general election. Obama would probably be looking at a 60-40 landslide.

Formula for "Strong Conservative Woman":
