A corrupt politician sighting? That's like finding a unicorn. Let's track her and study her habits.
 
2013-10-28 02:49:48 PM
She should hire John McAfee as a spokesman
 
2013-10-28 02:49:53 PM
Well, the important thing is that in the end she did the right thing.

Target Builder: Well, the important thing is that in the end she did had to be forced to do the right thing.

That's not fair. She was pinned down in the ladies' room, hiding from a pack of vicious lesbians.

... aaaaand, This is my 'shocked' face.

It's ok. The guy apologized to Jesus, so she didn't see what the big deal was.

/just because you spout off about the horrid things Jon Corzine did, doesn't mean you get to support a person who did it too, Michelle

and not even all of it

"Bachmann's recent $14,000 payout covers roughly 80 percent of the contributions that Vennes and his wife made directly to her campaign, but not the $10,000 they gave to her joint fundraising committee or the thousands of dollars their family and business associates donate," the magazine explains.

She should go back to being a lingerie model if she needs the cash.

FTA: "And Michele Bachmann was there again in 2011 to chime in on Solyndra and the evils of what she called crony capitalism. "It happens all the time in Washington, D.C., and it makes me sick. It's the idea that people can be bought, and in exchange, they use your money to pay off the political debts," ...
She also stated that the people donating to her presidential campaign were "real people."

When keeping it real goes wrong.

Thanks, Shelly.  In your heart you knew that you did the right thing and what Jesus wanted.

Well if she isn't the answer to America's moral dilemas, I don't know what is.

Easy to see why she wanted the government shut down!  Nasty ol' government, always out to git me.
 
2013-10-28 03:11:35 PM
she needs to return her herd of foster kids that has kept her awash in government checks for the last 20 years.
 
2013-10-28 03:12:04 PM
I guess Marcus threw a nasty biatch-fit over this and still won't come out of his room.

Not news, Republican.

That's not her, but just to be certain I'll need the chick in that picture brought to my chambers for a thorough inspection.

That's Lisa Edelstein, she played Cuddy on the TV show House.

She has to divorce that shirt-lifting hmoo first. McAfee's going to need a bigger boat.

Point missed.  Every thing like this when it comes to Bachmann is relevant because of how she has put herself on a pedestal.

machoprogrammer: Didn't Hillary have the same problem back in 2008?


B-b-b-b-but Hilary? I don't remember an order from a bankruptcy court being involved. I'm not saying she's any less corrupt than any other politician, mind you. Well not any politician but no one gets far in politics without getting dirty on some level.

Indeed.  I bet if you petitioned Lord Google for information regarding Cuddy + House + Striptease you might get an interesting video.

Her husband runs a "gay therapy clinic" that has soaked Medicaid for six figures.

No, I got the point. And my post wasn't meant to say that this should be dismissed and accepted as part of the "game". Just that this shiat happens all the time. It should be investigated and if necessary pursued every time but it shouldn't surprise anyone is all I'm saying.

Plenty of jobs for lawyers created since she's there is not an campaigning law she has found that she hasn't tried to cheat on.

WHY is she still in Washington?
 
2013-10-28 03:36:27 PM
OK, even though she is mildly retarded and a scumbag, what could anyone truly expect of a Teabagger?

They can't help themselves.

Bachmann is not *mildly* retarded.  She's full retard.

My mind goes in distress thinking that ANYONE would vote for her... even for dog catcher.  It's not a partisan thing... I don't see why anyone of either party would want someone of such a low IQ as their rep.  It really shows you how bad some constituencies are.

Because backwoods Minnesotans and their suburban counterparts are that dumb.

I disagree. Her problem is not that she's stupid... it's that she is insane.

As in actually crazy. I mean I'm no medical professional, but I think she could be literally diagnosed with a mental illness.

She has signs of narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder.

machoprogrammer: Didn't Hillary have the same problem back in 2008?

nope, pretty sure no coke-selling Ponzi scheme running folks gave to Hillary's campaign, nor did she peititon Obama to pardon them, and since it hasn;t been 7 years since 2008 that part of the story doesn;t sync up either.   So...no

 
2013-10-28 03:55:10 PM
While this case may be different because there's a bankruptcy court presumably trying to recover funds for other parties, in general I always say that if I were a politician and the Stalin's KKK Nazi Landmines and Lead Toys, Inc. donated to my campaign, I sure as fark wouldn't give it back because there's no difference between that and just donating to them directly.

She doesn't believe half the shiat she says, her little performance before the 'values voter' debate convinced me of that. Cynically playing the role and cashing the checks is all its about.

Are their women that dumb as well?  It might be worth moving to some bumblefark shiathole if it means using my metropolitan shrewdness to a bag a harem of milkfed cretins.

Perhaps not, but the other half of what she says still involves hiding in the bushes at a gay rights rally.

Michelle Bachmann is the kind of person who can convince herself that anything is true, as long as it's convenient to believe it. Which makes her like most polticians, but in day-to-day existence that's a form of mental illness. Sociopathy, to be exact.

Well she had donors indicted for some illegal things but she did give back or donate the money to charity. So we're both sort of right and wrong

Most of those were actually only on her property for a night or weekend, apparently.

Because her district luuuuuuuuves her. They are absolutely over the moon about her....she even won by a whopping 1%!
