She has a point. I wish somebody would have warned me about the dangers of eating Italian food. One moment I'm eating at Olive Garden then before I knew it I was carrying out contract hits for the mob.

That's why I consume naught but Willie Aames-endorsed "Bible Bars" and Alphagetti with the "A," "L" and "H" removed.

Hey I'm starting to think she is onto something with this biblical food thing

"Chris, falafel is a gateway food," responded Bachmann, "It starts with falafel, then the kids move on to shawarma. After a while they say 'hey this tastes good, I wonder what else comes from Arabia?' "

"Before you know it our children are listening to Muslim music, reading the Koran, and plotting attacks against the homeland."

"We need to stop these terror cakes now, before they infiltrate any further."

... she, she actually said this? C'mon, you're pulling my leg. No satire tag?
She, she REALLY said this? A sitting U.S. Congressman, who is more likely than not to win re-election, actually said this?

I weep for this country.

dennysgod: First off, F*ck you subby for using the "Hero" tag

That being said seems like both Bachmann and subby need to get off another Arab food:

And while we're at it felafel was actually invented by the Coptics in Egypt, a group who is in fact are quite Christian, as a meatless meal to have during Lent, and it enjoyed by all Abrahamic Faiths.

Helen: Hmm, Pita. Well, I don't know about food from the Middle East. Isn't that whole area a little... iffy?

Hostess: [laughs] Hey, I'm no geographer. You and I -- why don't we call it pocket bread, huh?

Maude: [reading the ingredients list] Umm, what's tahini?

Hostess: Flavor sauce.

Edna: And falafel?

Hostess: Crunch patties.

Helen: So, we'd be selling foreign...

Hostess: Specialty foods. Here, try a Ben Franklin.

Helen: [takes a bite] Mmm, that is good. What's in it?

Chef: Tabbouleh and rezmi-kabob.

Hostess: [trying to cover-up] Uh, th-that's our chef... Christopher.

Chef: [mutters, and closes the window, cursing in Hindi]

Obvious satire. School lunches don't have anything remotely as nutritious as falafel in this country.

There's a carb-heavy food, deep fried and served sandwich style, that DOESN'T appeal to the self-styled Representative of America's Heartland?

Representative of the unwashed masses: [ image 556x402]

Just look at those terrorists...

A senior citizen on Social Security, a Russian spy, an illegal alien, a scientist who lives off federal grants, a traitor who refuses to sell his suit to the military, and a gun-hating archer.

Parasites and traitors, the whole lot of them.

I was going with it until the bit about the shawarma and I thought "No way she'd know what that is..."

After "Before you know it our children are listening to Muslim music, reading the Koran, and plotting attacks against the homeland" I knew I'd been had.

Well done.

Pilikia: "Terror cakes" was the clue for me.

If you were on the receiving end of Bill O'Reilly's falafel fantasies, you'd consider them terror cakes too.

Look at that ring she's wearing in that picture. I wonder if that's a recent pic, with a ring that her current husband got her (I have no idea if she's remarried or not)? Can you imagine that guy picking out a ring for her. I'll bet the thought process went something like this, "Hmmm, time to pick out a ring for my beloved lovely wife. I need to find a ring that shows off her classic beauty. Something timeless, tasteful, elegant, and bold, but not too bold. Something that I would like to wear.. I mean, if I were a woman."
