US Not Ready For a Woman President, Says Woman Who Ran For President

Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann has issued her edict on the chances Hillary Clinton's theoretical campaign would have during a theoretical 2016 election: not good. Mostly because America simply isn't ready for a female President. I bet the schmucks who donated to Bachmann's 2012 Presidential campaign feel pretty stupid now!

During an interview with columnist Cal Thomas, Bachmann admitted that she didn't think America was ready for Hillary Clinton because #BENGHAZI #OBAMACARE, but even if those things weren't #BENGHAZI huge #OBAMACARE black eyes on Hillary #BENGHAZI Clin#OBAMACAREton's record, she still wouldn't win. Why? Because America's not experiencing "woman guilt" like they experienced "white guilt." Not enough people want it hard enough. Seriously.

Bachmann says a lot of people "aren't ready" for a female president. "I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt." (Presumably she means because of slavery and the lengthy denial of civil rights to blacks.) "People don't hold guilt for a woman," she says, adding that while people vote for women for virtually every other office "I don't think there is a pent-up desire" for a woman president.
Yes. Despite the fact that speculation on who will become the female President has been part of the political landscape throughout the last several decades, we don't want it hard enough. And then, just for good measure, Bachmann said something dumb about race. If she'd have thrown in something xenophobic about muslims, something wrong about abortion, and something hateful about gay people, we'd have won Bingo!

Bless your whackadoodle Minnesota face, Michele Bachmann. Bless it.

1. whatevs. Nobody was ready for MB for President. That is for real.

Hillary, Debbie, Wendy those names would tell a very different story, methinks.

3. On the white guilt thing

Jamaal hit it out of the ballpark. For hockey fans - he iced it.

She has completely broken from reality. Between her twisted morality and her complete dismissal of white Americans who don't agree with her on ANYTHING - she's just cray cray.

I'd prefer to say it is just ignorance or political expedience -but we all know it's not true. She really believes the bullshit she spouts off.

6. What does being female have it do with it?

For example, that wasn't the reason I thought MB would be a president worse than GWB!
