Calling out the Right, Republicans and other jerks in politics

Tweedledee and Tweedledum – Together At Last!

with one comment

Ladies and Gentlemen!

There they are, sharing the stage for the first time!

Introducing Fox “News” Employee/Twitter Queen/former governor Sarah Palin, and certified lunatic/insurrection leader/republican representative of the 6th District of Minnesota Michelle Bachmann!

Ohh…it was a grand old time with these lovely ladies.

SOOOOO many gems!

One favorite (and ridiculous) talking point of Bachmann is that the U.S. economy was 100% private before Obama took power (going to assume this doesn’t need supporting documentation to prove wrong…are you with me, dear reader?).  She’s also hyping the preposterous notion of a “repeal” of health care reform…which implies a veto-proof republican majority in both houses of congress (I guess that’s only a pick up 26 senate seats and 90 house seats…ambitious, anyone???).  Is that really going to be the 2010 republican campaign?  Eliminate tax breaks?  Take our healthcare benefits away?  Brilliant.

More good stuff:

  • Bachmann on Palin “as absolutely drop-dead gorgeous as this woman is on the outside, I am here to testify she is 20 times more beautiful on the inside.”
  • Palin:  “I love being here in Minnesota because you all sound like me – or I sound like you, vice versa!”  Yeah…where does that ridiculous accent come from?
  • Bachmann during a standing ovation:  “Take that, Liberals!”  Yes, because Liberals are such villans…all that helping your fellow human being and protecting the planet and promoting peace and whatnot…they simply MUST be stopped…
  • (This one makes my ears bleed) Palin on Bachmann:  “And I knew that we would be buddies when she came up and said we should ‘drill here and drill now.’ And I said — and then I replied, ‘Drill baby, drill’ And then we both said, ‘You betcha,’  Ohhh, the pain…
  • “Will you do the rest of the nation a favor and re-elect Michele Bachmann, help her keep on serving this country?”  And by serve the country, you mean introduce legislation to save the dollar bill (from Obama, of course), suggest representatives be investigated for anti-American sentiment and throw red meat to tea party “activists”…

And only $10,000 for a picture with the two of them…why, its a steal at TWICE the price!!

Its sad, funny stuff…but these women are popular, they have fanatical followers, and they LOVE making stuff up to fool, rile up or just scare people…about government take-overs, and death panels, and socialism, and how Obama is some kind of sinister, yet (of course) weak and illegitimate, leader.

But its not all bad news.  Note this classic blurb from an MSNBC  report on the rally:

A small group of peace protesters set up camp across the street from the convention hall. Melissa Hill, 31, brandished a sign offering psychiatric help because, she said, “I just don’t know what these people are thinking.”
