Michele Bachmann Follies Tonight

I am looking forward to tonight’s State of the Union Address by President Obama more than any other past address over the years.

Not because I’ll be enthralled with Obama’s speech. He’ll surely have some nice, sober, serious thoughtful things to say about the economy and job creation. Ho-hum.

The officials Republican response after the speech will feature Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, who will surely have some nice, sober, serious, thoughtful things to say about the national deficit. Ho-hum.

What I’m really excited about is Michelle Bachmann, Republican Congressperson from Minnesota, says she’s going to have her own Tea Party response to Obama’s State of the Union Speech.

You never know what Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. will say, which will surely make her response tonight to Obama's State of The Uniion Speech interesting.

Kids say the darnedest things, and so does Bachmann.  I can’t WAIT to hear what she has to say. It’s always crazy and loopy and highly entertaining

If you don’t believe me, here are some wonderful examples of Bachmannisms:

“Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.” Um, yes carbon dioxide is natural and always there. It just causes problems when there’s too much of it. Arsenic, fire, water and hungry grizzly bears are natural, so are you going to eat arsenic cookies, set yourself on fire, then spend an hour under water and then offer yourself as a tasty treat to a grizzly bear?

“There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” Really? Name them. Maybe she meant Ignobel Prize.

“And what a bizarre time we’re in, January, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.” So will the judge order children to say a gay Pledge of Allegiance?  “I pledge allegiance to Kylie Minogue, and the fashion choices of Lady Gaga…….”

“I don’t know where they’re going to get all this money because we’re running out of rich people in this country.” Then why do the Kashardian sisters still exist?   Just asking.

“Tax-free zones are meant to be the catalyst to put the final nail in this system to have a state-planned economy.” Really, the government by not getting involved in taxing something or somebody, is taking control? A novel approach, certainly.

So anyway, watch Bachmann carefully tonight. We’ll have a whole new list of Bachmannisms to kick around tomorrow.
