HE'S COMING FOR OUR FOOD.... Back during the presidential campaign, Barack Obama noted, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK." The comment, made 16 months ago, was obviously about over-consumption and America's role in the world.

A year and a half later, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is worried. "President Obama said we can't eat as much food as we want and think the rest of the world will be okay about that, as if that matters to freedom-loving Americans," she told her colleagues from the House floor this week.

"Well, we just heard last week that the Federal Government now under the Obama administration is calling for a re-ordering of America's food supply. What is that going to mean? Now will the White House decide how many calories we consume or what types of food we consume?"

Yes, Michele, that's exactly what it means. In fact, ACORN will now be responsible for preparing all foods in all households. President Obama will appoint a "dinner czar" to make sure you don't skip your vegetables. If you do, a "death panel" will decide whether you qualify for dessert.

12. Sorry, Eli Lilleys's lawyers would take issue with that.
Bachman, Beck, and Limbaugh are their greastest examples of the efficacy of their mind altering, psychotropic drugs.

3. Wow, she's better than Colbert - she really inhabits the character...
of the crazy right-winger perfectly! Good job!


Oh. I've just been informed that Bachmann is for real. Really? Are you sure? What, is someone going to tell me next that Glenn Beck for real, too?

11. Don't worry, Glenn Beck is absolutely for real
Rush Limbaugh told me so. I think. Actually, let me get back to you on that, the voices are arguing with Rush, and I need my meds and a nap.

4. I think it's the Repukes who want to do that, by
bankrupting us all through paying the health insurance companies an ever-higher percentage of our income. Before long, food will be something we can't afford.

9. I just lover her to death!
she's so freaking insane, it's a never ending source of amusement. America will lose a great comedic resource when Bachmann finally loses her seat, and I want to be there to see it happen.

More, you crazy lady! I want MORE!

15. If what Ms. Bachmann says is true, she better watch out. Comrade Obama may take away all her food.
:crazy:

Do people actually vote for this woman? Seriously?

16. I hope she gets voted out of office when the time comes.
Because her time is up masquerading as a sane adult, much less a representative.

18. WHO is asking Americans to consume less food, Michele?
Bachmann: Prayer and fasting will help defeat health care reform

On Wednesday Rep. Michele Bachmann was part of a star-studded teletownhall meeting to discuss health-care reform. The event, billed Keeping Faith with the Unborn, was sponsored by the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion advocacy group. The organizations president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, claimed that there were some 350,000 listeners on the line.

Thats really where this battle will be won on our knees in prayer and fasting, she told the listeners. Remember: faith without works is dead. So were asking you to do all of it: pray, fast, believe, trust the Lord, but also act.

27. Larry King,
some years back, had an interview with the Dalai Lama. At the end, King asked his Holiness if he had any advice for the American people. The advice was "eat less".
