Bachmann Tells Obama to Bomb Iran

Michele Bachmann attended the White House Christmas party and decided that was the appropriate time, as she’s leaving office, to tell the president that he should bomb Iran. And she was apparently surprised and put off when he didn’t take her seriously.

Bachmann, whose last day in office is today, said the White House Christmas party was her last chance for a conversation with Barack Obama in such a capacity. That’s why Bachmann said she “decided to have a substantive conversation.”

“I asked the president to be very serious and to think about this because if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon on his watch, the course of history will change,” she said, describing Obama as “fairly condescending” in his response.

“He smiled and laughed and was fairly patronizing, and said, ‘Well, you know, it just isn’t that easy, Michele, but that’s OK,’ like I’m some little woman who doesn’t know what I’m talking about.”

But Michele, you actually don’t know what you’re talking about. Ever. You’re lucky he didn’t just laugh in your face and tell you not to let the door hit you in the ass as you leave Congress. You were condescended to because you deserve to be condescended to.

    They should team up. Get on it, Marvel!

    I’m pretty sure they are separate people, dingo, even though they are never seen together (I certainly never spotted Colnago at the White House Christmas party). If Bachmann had the rare bone disorder that prevents one from pronouncing the “t” in Hitler, we all would have known about it long ago.

    SLC – Good morning! Any evidence to back your baseless assertion? Nah didn’t think so.

    Canada seems to look a little shifty eyed. The president should bomb them as well…just in case.

    Now that is a real War on Xmas!!! Or rather a War for Xmas!!!

    It’s very seasonal though. Nothing says Happy Holidays like bombing a country back to the stone age.

    Michele Bachmann once again shows why she is the poster person for Fundie Xian Induced Cognitive Impairment. She really shouldn’t be out in public without her minder.

    lldayo@6 I agree. Can you really trust anyone who doesn’t know ham from bacon FFS? I don’t think so!

    The right-wing solution to all domestic problems is to cut taxes.

    The foreign-policy equivalent is that no matter what the circumstances are, bomb somebody. Not at all necessarily the troublemaker.

    Hey Colnago, do you think you could add in a few “Frankenberger! Schickelgruber’s!” to illustrate your credibility & maturity? Not all of Ed’s readers are familiar with you and your…peculiarities.

    lldayo. “Canada seems to look a little shifty eyed. The president should bomb them as well…just in case.”

    Well, as a country with nuclear power, they are a theoretical 18 months away from turning their nuclear power in to Nuclear Power. In this unstable world, can we really take a chance?

    Wow, you really are a greedy, little, shitbag genocidal sociopath, aren’t you? What next? Nuke Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, those ‘dirty’ parts of India? It must really suck for you to look into the mirror in the morning and say, “Fuck ‘m…Nuke ‘m”. You should change your name to ‘sociopathological shitbag maniac 80’ next…fuck for brains.

    The multiple levels of irony in that one statement by Bachmann are quite delicious. The fact that she does want women reduced to “some little woman” and the fact that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Pure comic gold.

    colnago80 @2: So, what you’re saying is that you think that my college roommate’s dad should die a terrible death for *failing to stay in the US*? I mean, I know a lot of people are against divorce, but this is the first time I’ve heard that a man should be put to death for it. And several million other people who have never done anything except want to live their own lives in peace.

    I can’t decide if you’ve simply never thought through any of the consequences of your suggested actions, or if you really are just a terrible person.

    Please, and in all seriousness, give some thought to the human consequences of your “bomb everyone” statements.

    JustaTech:

    Come now, colnago80/SLC isn’t saying “bomb everyone” – just “bomb everyone in Iran, plus create polluting contamination from nuclear fallout and/or burning oilfields, chemical plants, etc. that spreads across the entire surrounding region, affecting millions more, plus possibly screw with agriculture around the globe for a few years (with attendant consequences of mortality, morbidity, misery, & ruin) if enough sunlight-reflecting dust gets into the stratosphere!”

    When you put it that way, it sounds so much… wait… no, turns out it sounds just as terrible.

    JustaTech: begging that little chickenhawk for anything doesn’t work — he really shows no sign of having the mental ability to care about anything but himself, and only in the immediate short-term at that. What you see above is about as thoughtful as he gets.

    I would confine any bombing attack on Iran to their nuclear sites, using conventional bunker buster bombs. After learning something about their effectiveness, it became evident that using nuclear weapons was vast overkill.

    Well, according to a Pharyngula post on the 12th, we do have an invasion plan for Canada.

    LOL, for someone who’s praised Phylis Schafly, the part of her quote where Bachmann plays the gender card makes her come across as something of a feminist.
