"Asked if there were any questions she would have answered differently if given a chance to do over again, Bachmann said she wished she had gotten John Wayne's birthplace and Elvis Presley's birthday correct. ... But those were the only questions she wants to do over, 'because I was right about all the others.'"

Hmmm, let's see...

"There's a woman who came up crying to me tonight after the debate. She said her daughter was given that vaccine. She told me her daughter suffered mental retardation as a result of that vaccine. There are very dangerous consequences."

BZZZZT!  Wrong!  Thanks for playing.

Never before, in the history of the world, have more people been so aggressively proud of being stupid.

I wish my brain had a safe mode. I felt compelled to read the whole thing and I think I'm going to go take a Valium and some propranolol to bring my blood pressure down.

Asked if any good came from feminism, Bachmann said that realizing that "women are valuable and that women should be listened to is very important." However, she continued, "But in my opinion, that wasn't feminism, that was Jesus Christ who did that. Because Jesus Christ did more to lift up women... We didn't need the 1960s to tell us that, all you have to do is read Proverbs 31."

Is there anything Jesus can't do?

She dwelled on her faith at length, saying she couldn't think of a time when evangelical Christianity has been at odds with political conservatism, because when it comes to politics, "my guide has been scripture."

 Great.  Now I'm a migraine sufferer.

"We're seeing a movement now in the United States where there is an effort to push Sharia law compliance and that takes away rights for individuals."

I see she hasn't lost that paranoia, and complete lack of introspection and self-awareness that has always charmed us.

When asked about the "inevitability" of gay marriage, Bachmann stood up from her chair to say that heterosexual marriage is "immutable" and "the basis of our society - between men and women." "I won't be deviating," she said.  "My husband on the other hand...."

Michelle Bachmann needs to start using the term "same-sex" marriage rather than "gay marriage" or "homosexual marriage."  Because while she may oppose same-sex marriage, she's clearly OK with gays getting married, and in fact she practices gay marriage herself:

I love how she is freaked out by "Sharia Law", but says that every political decision she makes is guided by her religion.

She seems to believe that religion and politics shouldn't be separated, and that is *exactly* what Sharia Law is.

I've never heard the fundamentalist Christians be so open about their agenda for the country and even refer to it as Sharia law.  I guess she gets points for being honest about her intentions.

True. So, SO true.

Sadly, If Christians could see reason, understand logic, or or be swayed by contradiction, then they wouldn't be religious in the first place.

Not so for other faiths, however, as she warned about a concerted campaign to create a global Islamic Caliphate, explaining that even here, "We're seeing a movement now in the United States where there is an effort to push Sharia law compliance and that takes away rights for individuals."

christian dominionism, on the other hand...well that's just darn spiffy!

If she's linking Jesus and Proverbs that means he can show up before he was even born. Proverbs is in the Old Testament.

yeah, but to the christian theocrats it's ok to impose their religious beliefs on others.  just don't you dare impose YOUR beliefs on them, because that's wrong.  oh and you aren't allowed to disagree with their religion or quietly worship gods other than the christian ones - you MUST comply with their theology. its for your own good.

When people say this, I have to ask:
You are for banning divorce then, correct? What about when there is abuse? no divorce, they can just live separate?
Single people will be required to marry, right? Otherwise they are helping destroy our society?
That marriage should include the clergy, correct? Should non-marrying sects be banned?

looking closer, it looks like the district is built by combining whole counties ....

I hate her as the devil spawn that she is, currently married to satan himself. but her district is less insane than many.

exactly!  quietly practicing Islam, Judiasm or Pagan beliefs means that you are oppressing Christians everywhere merely by existing.  I guess Christianity is so weak that it can't stand on it's own, it needs government protection in order to survive.

Well, their marriages will crumble at the mere mention of gay marriage, if they are to be believed... it seems like everything they believe in and practice is incredibly weak and hanging on by a thread.  It must be awful to feel as if you're constantly threatened by other people doing things that in no way actually affect you.

The thing I have never understood (and I went to Catholic school for 12 long years) is why they can't just be satisfied by the idea that they're right and will be rewarded in heaven. Shouldn't that be enough for them?

To which, she would reply, "Bootstraps!", "Socialism!", or "Tax cuts for job creators!", and that would be sufficient to get her back into office.  Hell, the Republicans might even do something spiteful and ironic, like putting her on the intelligence committee.

but they could back slide into sin at any moment.  and in their religion if you sin EVEN ONCE, then you burn forever in eternal hellfire.  so they need get sin under control, if they don't and then slip even once....BAM!  straight to hell!

Sharia Law is real and its not just about OIL. When the tidal wave of Muslim HITS the shores of America, you can bet they will not only be renaming planets like Pluto and URANUS, but they will also be taking away your god-given freedoms to drink bud on Saturday and bow your head on Sunday morning.

Go a step further, these same christian are also violently against the Catholics.
Get them going on the Papists. Then point out that papists is an incredibly bigoted and hateful word.
Watch their heads spin.

FTFA: Tea Party Rep. Michele Bachmann has been laying low since last November's election when she came dangerously close to losing her House seat, possibly in preparation for a bid against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken in 2014.

Bwahahahahaha!
