Rep. Michele Bachmann Links Swine Flu to Democrats, is Wrong


Congresswoman Michele Bachmann from Minnesota "finds it interesting" that the last time the swine flu broke out we had "another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter."

Unfortunately, she's wrong. It was under Gerald Ford, a Republican.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I recommend Ms. Bachmann move to Alaska and go hunting with Ms. Palin, Cheney style.

  2. I fear that just looking at the still image of her has sapped my IQ...

  3. God, she needs to take her return trip home; back to Hell.

    If you aren't blaming it on him, why are you making that (false) connection?

    And there's that "Democrat President" or "Democrat Party" or "Democrat Senator" again.

  4. Michelle Bachmann brought swine flu to the U.S. after enjoying a Dirty Sanchez in Tiajuana.

  5. She is loopty-loops ka-razy! Oh, and stupid too. These usually don't go hand-in-hand, but in her case...

  8. It is as if Ann Coulter were elected to congress. Truly a messed up beeotch.

  9. There should be a new show: Real Housewives of DC -- where all the bimbos like Prejean, Palin, Ann Coulter, and Bachman Underdrive all bitch and drink scotch with their knees wide. They'd all screech at their employees and hang out penthouse windows spitting on people on the ground. They're only good for reality type tv.

  10. She's a disgrace to this country and especially to the district that elected her.

  11. I'm sure John Stewart has just one thought about this woman: Ka-CHING!

  12. Minnesota, huh? That's the state that keeps giving Norm Coleman 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th chances to win the Senate recount when he's already given-up and taken a job as a lobbyist. The Dims there need to grow some spines and 'nads. Or just keep letting the Repugs make them look like fools. Either way is entertaining.

  14. Hahahaha! What would making fun of wingnuts be like without the queen of all wingnuts to hold up and ridicule on a regular basis?

  15. This woman is an ongoing embarrassment to the great state of Minnesota. Get thy dumb bigot self out of government!

    God knows she can use all the help she can get in that dept.

  17. This kind of insane stupidity is all the Republicans have. They are totally bankrupt morally and intellectually.
    That's why the Log Cabinites that visit Towleroad are more and more of mystery to me. How can any sane person possibly defend a party like this or want to be associated with it in any way? What the hell is wrong with their brains?

  18. That is one stupid fuck!

  21. Michele Bachmann is the voice of the Republican party!

  22. I certainly don't know everything, but I if I was going to make a smug speech like this, I'd employ a fact checker or something beforehand!

  23. Michelle Bachmasn is a piece - of something. It will be interesting to see it this makes mainstream media.

    Yahoo - the ignorant bigoted Republican party will shrink even more.

    Sorry - Mom and Dad (I was abandoned by wolves and raised by bigoted, hateful right wing Republicans).

  24. Bachmann is a Douche

  25. What the hell?! Are you kidding? She said it and she meant it. Why would anyone even draw that comparison? While Carter was not a good pres, just my opinion, he had nothing to do with the swine flu! This crazy right wing nut needs to stop making comparisons of dems to swine flu!
