Really?

Just a few recent things that have made me go "huh?":

I don't like to call people stupid, but come on. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is criminally stupid. This woman votes on laws for all of us. When trying to argue that manmade global warming doesn't make sense, she reached deep into her ass and pulled out this gem:

"Carbon dioxide, Mister Speaker, is a natural byproduct of nature. Carbon dioxide is natural. It occurs in Earth. It is a part of the regular lifecycle of Earth. In fact, life on planet Earth can’t even exist without carbon dioxide. So necessary is it to human life, to animal life, to plant life, to the oceans, to the vegetation that’s on the Earth, to the, to the fowl that — that flies in the air, we need to have carbon dioxide as part of the fundamental lifecycle of Earth."

It's obvious that there is a shortage of oxygen in the general vicinity of Michele Bachmann.


And with no apparent sense of irony she responded to hate-crime legislation with this:

REP MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MN): "I feel that this hate crime legislation could be considered the very definition of tyranny."

And lastly, she was almost positive she had a whopper this time, that she had actually came up with something smart that nailed the Democrats:

BACHMANN: I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under Democrat President Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it is an interesting coincidence.

The problem is, the last outbreak began in February of 1976 ... when Gerald Ford was still president.

Moron.

And for another head-scratching occurrence, Phoenix is lucky enough to be hosting the NRA's annual meetings next week.

The events include a free concert of music and comedy on Friday.

Mitt Romney, John McCain and John Bolton speak at NRA'S Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum on Friday night. On Saturday, John Stossel and Oliver North speak at NRA's Celebration of American Values Freedom Banquet. Wait ... I don't understand. I thought the comedy concert was earlier?

On Sunday, there will be a "prayer breakfast". See, the NRA is all about "freedom". Freedom to own semi-automatic weapons and worship a Christian God, that is. Don't tell me the NRA is about liberty and freedoms. It's bullshit that I'm honestly tired of hearing. They are a single-issue advocacy group, impervious to reason, and do not care one iota about making this a better country.

You know you're morally and intellectually bankrupt when you hold up ass-clowns like Bolton and North as heroes and "patriotic" Americans. If being patriotic means worshipping a traitor who sold weapons to Iran, like North, and someone who advocated blowing up the UN, like Bolton, then I guess I'm not patriotic.

Just be thankful that you don't have to admit to living in her district. At least I can take some comfort in knowing that I did vote for her opponent. It is OK to feel sorry for me, given that I get to live next door to all the people who saw fit to send her to Congress (and it wasn't like they didn't know what they were voting for - she had been in the state house before this and was every bit as moronic then).

The NRA is no better than any other group of sheeplike true believers. But that's what makes an effective lobby or base - never question the herd.

Bacchman is really scary. It's like if Ann Coulter were a woman and elected to office...
