Conservatives whine that their female candidates get no respect from liberals; they cite the treatment of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann as proof of a “double standard”. The fact is, the women they promote as candidates all seem as though…how should I put it…their brains are scrambled.
Currently, Michele Bachmann is running through the halls of Congress yelling, “The Muslim Brotherhood is coming! The Muslims Brotherhood is coming! and accusing reputable American citizens of being part of some terrorist plot to infiltrate the government.
It started with Bachmann’s call for an investigation into Huma Abedin, a deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom Bachmann claims has ties to the Brotherhood.
Then, USA Today reported:
“In an interview Thursday with radio host Glenn Beck, the Minnesota Republican asserted that Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., has a long record of being associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
“The attack machine has been turned on myself and the other members of Congress who have been asking these questions, that somehow we’re the Muslim haters, we’re the witch hunters, we’re the new Joe McCarthyites because we’re asking these questions,” Bachmann said.”
She added this:
“The influence today of the Muslim Brotherhood at the highest levels, from the White House, to the Pentagon, to the FBI, even to our United States military, truly is breathless and people have to know about it,” Bachmann said.
This woman campaigned for the GOP nomination for President; how scary is that? Here are a few other gems from the Bachmann hit parade:
- “I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America?”
- “Support for Israel is handed down by God and if the United States pulls back its support, America will cease to exist.”
- Iran has been “delivered a nuclear warhead” (untrue)
- ”I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back.”
Yes, liberals are bastards for pointing out that Mrs. Bachmann belongs in a rubber room; but if it makes you feel any better, we think your male candidates are idiots, too.
