Michele Bachmann Cries Out in Religious Fervor, Says Benghazi and 9/11 Were God's Judgment: VIDEO


Last week at an event at the U.S. Capitol organized by birther Joseph Farah, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) re-upped her wingnut cred with this display of insanity:

It’s no secret that our nation may very well be experiencing the hand of judgment. It’s no secret that we all are concerned that our nation may be in a time of decline. If that is in fact so, what is the answer? The answer is what we are doing here today: humbling ourselves before an almighty God, crying out to an almighty God, saying not of ourselves but you, would you save us oh God? We repent of our sins, we turn away from them, we seek you, we seek your ways. That’s something that we’re doing today, that we did on the National Day of Prayer, it’s something that we have chosen to do as well on another landmark day later this year on September 11. Our nation has seen judgment not once but twice on September 11. That’s why we’re going to have ‘9/11 Pray’ on that day. Is there anything better that we can do on that day rather than to humble ourselves and to pray to an almighty God?


She may be doing more than that later today after Minnesota's vote on marriage equality.

  1. Can't go back to the good old days where we could chuck rotten tomatoes at people when they get on stage and act a fool?

  2. Dear Beard Bachmann, it's your nonstop paying in public, which directly disobeys my commandment in my Sermon on the Mount that your prayers be done in private, that makes me hate you so much.

    tired and over it, Jesus.

  5. May God protect us from the tyranny of the majority of voters in her Congressional District who elected us.

  6. I know one thing you can do better on that day besides,"hmble ourselves before an almighty God." You could pick up a science book & educate yourself on just why religion is bogus!!

  7. Queen, please. Carrie Nation already did this YEARS ago... and she did it better.

  8. I'm confused. If Benghazi is god's judgement How can it also be Hillary's fault. Someone needs to pull MB aside and explain that she is undermining their talking point.

    One more thing, I love reading about how the Repugs are going to regroup and be more modern, big tent, and welcoming, only to then see that they can't quit the crazy!

  9. Geoff and the Milkman: thank you for putting this in its proper perspective.

  10. You know, when you strike a pose like that, if you don't say "Oh, mighty Isis!" and start to fly it's IMO going to be a real let-down.

    But then she's abasing herself before the almighty Space Ghost, so what do I know about it?

    (I seem to have Sat. morning cartoons on the brain today.)

  11. Loon! I hope she starts speaking in tongues. Keep snapping your cap, lady.

  12. How does someone like this get elected?

    Posted by: brian | May 13, 2013 12:42:05 PM

  13. And Caliban for the win. It's hard to find an "O Mighty Isis" reference these days. Well played.

    Posted by: The Milkman | May 13, 2013 12:42:09 PM

  14. maybe I'm cold... but if Benghazi is god's judgement, killing 4 people is the judgement? OOOOOOH, GOD SURE SHOWED US!

  15. Once again I need to ask the good voters in Minnesota who keep re-electing her: what the hell is wrong with you?

  16. It's the most peculiar mindset - all resistance automatically flies into the Satan category. Such people are immune to learning and to change. Like Lot's wife, their minds have long since turned to stone and they are impervious. Benign indifference, I am told, is the best response and I look forward to the day when that is what I feel. Right now, however, I want such people bloodlessly obliterated though I could live with some left over grease spots.

  17. this is what happens when you don't get laid while married! poor irritating cow!

  18. Enough with the almighty God.....when will level-headed citizens of the USA out rightly reject this insanity.
    To quote George Carlin "Tell people that there's an invisible man in the sky that created the universe, and the vast majority will believe you. Tell people that the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to make sure."

  19. She is doing more to discredit Republicans than any other single voice. Thanks, Michelle.

  20. You know, when you strike a pose like that, if you don't say "Oh, mighty Isis!" and start to fly it's IMO going to be a real let-down. Caliban, you win the crown today.

    "Oh nether winds which blow on high, lift me know so I can fly"...

  21. Ye gods, that woman is crazed!

    Posted by: johnny | May 13, 2013 1:11:43 PM

  22. Can't this woman be removed from office? I am furious about this. Blatant reaching from a member of Congress? America is not a theocracy. Who do we write to in order to protest this crazy lunatic and her agenda??

    Posted by: Jack M | May 13, 2013 1:15:40 PM

  23. It still boggles my mind to realize this woman is on the House Intelligence Committee.

    Posted by: Terry | May 13, 2013 1:18:42 PM

  24. Thanks Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, Wright, Anoka, and Washington (Minn 6th)
    This is who best represents your district? This is who you want to make laws for the entire country?
    Happy now?

  25. She's prepping for her next career move: pastoriana in one of those mega churches. She heard those guys make good money; and she knows her time in Congress may be up next time around.

    That, or she wants to transfer to Broadway for the next Evita revival.
