Michele Bachmann, on the runaway GE built reactors in Japan.
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 10:58 AM by Hubert Flottz
"If I were pResident and commandress in chief, I'd bust General Electric all the way back down to private E-2!"

"This meltdown shall not stand!"

1. What the hell does this mean, "this meltdown shall not stand?"
I can't come up with whatever she was trying to express with that statement. Did she think it was a "tear down this wall" sort of thing or what?

4. That line worked for Poppy in 1991, so I guess the pubs think it still
might jolt the tiny teabagger minds into action again this year.

They are really big on SOS!

3. Is that a joke?
Seriously. She didn't say that, did she?

The goofballs on the Republican side are so whacked that it's difficult to tell if
quotes attributed to them are indeed authetnic or jokes.

6. You tell me????
If Michele Bachmann is a joke, she's a very sick joke.

I'd vote for her twin brother, Bat Boy, before I'd vote for that fruit cake.

5. She really said "This meltdown shall not stand!"? Is she a Lebowski fan?

7. She frequently gets her facts wrong...
GE designed the reactors in question and built one I seem to have read somewhere. The Japanese redesigned the reactors for their needs and built the rest with GE assistance.

13. Her elevator don't go all the way to the top floor.
But she's one of the TOP republican hopeful. The cream of their crop.

14. She probably rooted for the Big Lebowski the whole film.
Cheering loudly when he said things like, "Tattoo it on your forehead. Your revolution is over. The bums lost!"

10. An anti-corporate Tea Party Leader?
I expect her office to issue a retraction soon.

11. She didn't really say this, did she? Shirley you jest.
Then again, I couldn't believe Palin said that last made up word. I forgot what it is, but it wasn't refudiate. It was the most idiotic word she'd made up yet.

17. She's the republican's best and brightest!
I wonder if Old Johnny McSame will be the under card on that 2012 repub "super-ticket"?

Maybe Bachmann/Beck 2012?

Even using Fuzzy Math to her advantage, I can't figure Bachmann's IQ being anywhere above 15.

18. Air Head of the North she is....IQ below Bushies...around 12.78 on the scale of 300
Even Palins is higher.

Them GOPers in a heap of twoubles...Walker about to be indicted, Cantor looking like a fool, Ryans Plan is a pan, Boner on the outs with the

Baggers, etc...this is turning out to be funny....

Big movement coming up to take back America from the Crazies.....vote the Baggers out...vote BLUE
