Who does Michele Bachmann think she is? Sarah Palin?

Bachmann or Palin? Only their dentists know for sure.


U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota stood before New Hampshire Republicans with a tea bag clutched in her hand Saturday, but her grasp on Revolutionary War geography wasn’t quite as tight.

Before headlining a GOP fundraiser, the possible presidential hopeful told a group of students and conservative activists in Manchester, “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord, you started the battle for liberty right here in your backyard. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors.”

Though Bachmann probably wasn’t the first to confuse Concord, N.H., with Concord, Mass., her mistake was striking given her roots in the tea party movement, which takes its name from the dumping of tea into Boston Harbor by angry American colonists in December 1773, 16 months before the Battle of Lexington Green.

She made an almost identical gaffe Friday at a New Hampshire fundraiser, the Minnesota Post reported.

Bachmann’s visit to the state that traditionally holds the first presidential primary suggests she is seriously weighing a run for the GOP nomination in 2012. But critics say her tendency to embrace the Revolution while making errors about it shows she is not ready for prime time.

“She makes Sarah Palin look like Count Metternich,” Mike Murphy, a longtime Republican consultant, said on Twitter, referring to the 19th-century European diplomat.

“Is she on her way to Lexington, N.H., now?” cracked Matt Suermann, who blogs for RedHampshire, in response to somebody who posted on Twitter that Bachmann had left the building.

What is it with these idiot conservative women? In January, Bachmann ranted about the founding fathers “working tirelessly” to end slavery, and when asked about action against Libya on Meet the Press last Sunday she responded, “We are extended now in Afghanistan and Iraq, and I think for us to consider further penetration at this time, we need to listen to Gen. Petraeus and what he has to say”, to which Politico replied:

Bachmann, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, should know that Petraeus is the commander of American forces in Afghanistan and is not in the chain of command when it comes to military decisions about Libya.

Founding Fathers = FAIL
Military = FAIL
Teabaggers ‘History’ = FAIL

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are as equally ignorant of US history as they are of US politics. The only talent they possess is sniping at their democratically-elected president (he’s half-black, you know).

But don’t think for a moment that their pig-ignorance will stop either of them running for the black man’s job; it won’t. They’re proud of their ignorance and so are their fans.

Bachmann has already campaigned in Iowa and South Carolina; her trifecta is complete. Palin is in hiding from the GOP debate, but her flying monkeys are typing day and night, actively hating any and all other potential pretenders to Jesus Palin’s rightful GOP heavenly crown, although Bachmann is giving them particular headaches because they have inside info that she is running, according to reports from Palinbots in South Carolina and Iowa:

I am on the ground and connected here in SC. I was invited to a lunch meeting where I was asked to join her “team” here in South Carolina. The person who asked me used to be a die-hard Palin fan and was suddenly spewing very negative talking points to me about Palin. I was shocked. The message that I got was that they are going to use the “quitter” approach and decided to get in when they heard Huck was out.

These fightin’ words have led to disarray inside the Palin Cult. In their eyes, Michele Bachmann (she’s the one who birthed all of her babies) has all the qualities of Sarah Palin except for a couple of leisurely years of avoiding work while enjoying the title and salary of ‘governor’ (this is “executive experience” in Pbot-speak). Bachmann also didn’t quit her elected position to enrich herself, though it’s certain that a lot of folks would be glad to pay her to go the f*ck away.

Still, the Palin Cult is so threatened by Michele Bachmann that they fight among themselves about “Judas” every day (you didn’t believe that they revere Palin as Jesus Christ herself?):

For cuchingk..
Okay, that’s it. Every time I come here and find some dolt slamming Bachmann, I am going to say something. For one, Bachmann has not declared she is running for the Republican nomination. Sarah Palin has not declared she is running for the nomination. Both women are some of the strongest Conservatives in the Nation and both appear to be friendly to each other. Unless I hear from Sarah Palin that she is not happy with what Michele Bachmann is doing or that they are both in the race, then I am going to treat anyone here who bitches about Bachmann, calls her names, swears about her or anything negative, as a troll. A plant. An unwelcome poster.
And I don’t care if some here don’t like that.
Unless you have absolute proof that Bachmann is doing Sarah harm, STFU about Bachmann.

Poor little P-brains, unraveling a little more every day …

And, by the way, Mrs Shit-for-Brains Bachmann: those were Punchumgum’s ancestors spilling their blood! No doubt yours were too busy dumping tea somewhere off the coast of Lexington KY.
