Michele Ma Belle

I suppose you’ve been following the controversy over Michele Bachmann’s Newsweek cover? It seems that the Conservative Blogesphere is livid that Newsweek picked that particular photo (see below), which they claim makes her look like an idiot — or, along with the title, “The Queen of Rage,” like a psycho.

Would you give this woman the keys to the nuclear football? How about the keys to your Prius?

Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” joined in the criticism, pointing out that it was inappropriate to use a unflattering picture of Bachmann’s face to suggest that she’s crazy, because “that’s what her words are for.” I have to agree in general (but then I also have to say that her looks also scare me, so maybe I’m not one to judge)

And one must admit that her words are pretty terrifying. Here are some*:

Item: Bachmann believes that the musical “The Lion King” is promoting the gay lifestyle to our kids, because a teacher might say, “Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: ‘I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.'”

Item: Would Bachmann make Glenn Beck her Secretary of the Treasury? In February, she told an audience in South Carolina: “I think if we give Glenn Beck the numbers, he can solve this [our national debt].”

Item: Cancer may be bad, but on the other hand it may cure you of homosexuality. In 2004, she said about Melissa Etheridge, who was diagnosed with breast cancer: “This may be an opportunity for her now to be open to some spiritual things, now that she is suffering with that physical disease. She is a lesbian.”

There are plenty more terrifying quotes available, of course, like her pledge to shut down the EPA if she’s elected. And her promise to ban teleprompters from the White House. This woman is just priceless.

Frankly, I totally hope that she does get the Republican nomination, because it increases Obama’s chances of re-election by like a zillion percent.

Etheridge has survived her cancer, while stubbornly remaining a lesbian. On the other hand she just filed separation papers from her partner, so maybe her brutal life-threatening disease did SOME good...

On the other hand, if Bachmann gets elected, I’m moving to another goddamned continent. On another planet. In another solar system. Because that woman is just plain batshit crazy. I mean, just look at the photo!

  1. Crazy gay Says:

    I think her husband should just “pray the crazy” our of her, even if that is not as poetic as his usual practice to “pray the gay” out of people. On the other hand, maybe he was praying for Melissa Etheridge….
