It’s awards season, time for red carpets, papparazi, and overly long acceptance speeches. The Worldnetdaily has given away its very prestigious Legislator of the Year award for 2014 and the winner is: Michele Bachmann. They like her, they really like her!
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has been a prolific conservative legislator despite strong resistance from establishment Republicans, including leaders of her own party, and despite the considerable challenge of passing legislation without cooperation from an obstructionist Senate controlled by Democrats.
And, despite an outgoing personality and political boldness demonstrated by her willingness to go in front of the cameras to champion the causes in which she believed, over the years WND has found Bachmann to be a genuinely humble and modest public servant who has shied from public praise and honors.
That was evidenced when, informed she had been awarded WND’s “2014 Lawmaker of the Year,” Bachmann simply replied, “What an honor!”
I know, right? What an honor! Who wouldn’t want to win an award from the He-Man Reality Haters Club? I do have to wonder, though, what they mean by her being “prolific.” She certainly didn’t accomplish much in the House other than getting on TV a lot. In 8 years, she introduced a total of 58 bills and passed exactly one (one of the dozens of pointless bills to repeal Obamacare in the House, none of which had a prayer of passing the Senate). So I can only guess that “prolific” really just means that she talked a lot.
