Bachmann On Govt Shutdown: GOP 'The Happiest I've Seen In...A Long Time' - VIDEO


In a Fox News appearance today, Tea Party leader Michele Bachmann (R-MN) opted for an upbeat and infuriating message about her GOP compatriots' solidarity and strength during the messy government shutdown still underway.

"We're really very energized today, we're very strong," she assured the anchors. "This is about the happiest I've seen members in a long time because we see that we're starting to win this dialogue on a national level." Jon Stewart (and presumably many others) might just disagree.

Watch the insanity, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Ask her why she doesn't protest government health care for members of Congress, including herself?

  3. IT IS A LAW. IT CAN NOT BE POUSHED BACK. Are they just STUPID? I would like to slap the shite out of her and Marcus both....several times over....again and again.

  5. Are they happy their scorched earth policies may have had something to do with the attempt by a woman to ram the security gate at the White House??

  6. She is truly delusional and hateful, with the stoned smile on her face.

  7. Once again, I ask, is there a petition out there for the arrest and conviction of these traitors, who have openly said for years they are out to shut down the government? Cuz according to the Constitution, they fit the bill (no pun intended).

  8. EVERYBODY in America, even on the right, thinks this future-felon is insane and ridiculous. I appreciate that FOX news doesn't get it. And I ssuspect her glee is not phony, she's not smart enough to realize the days of the Tea Party are now numbered because of this dunderheadedness, of which she is queen.

    Such a pathetic woman. I can't wait for the ethics charges and criminal charges against her to come rolling in.

  9. Watch her.
    She is only interested in her image, her hair, her clothes.

    It's all about her.She cares nothing for the American people and less for any who fall below her Prada/Dior lifestyle.
    As for shutting down the government, why is there not a padlock on the Capitol Building ?
    Why are these traitors parading around the Capitol Building in their self important struts ?
    Let 'Shut Down ' mean what it says on the can.....shut down the building.

  10. Oh God this woman irritates the fizzy piss out of me.

    Who in their right mind considers sitting in the corner and refusing to cooperate as "winning this dialogue"?
    They shut the dialogue down. That's the whole point.

  11. Shutting the government down for T-baggers = lithium to mental patients.

  12. Michele Bachmann, still not in touch with reality!

  13. Sean Hannity and his propagandist screed is pure vile.

  14. As usual, Ms. Bachmann is delusional........there is NO diaglouge......and of course, she would be "happy" the government is shut down...This is her last hurrah as this is her last term............

  15. In other news...

    Posted by: rustytrawler | Oct 3, 2013 4:28:13 PM

  16. She's retiring, so can the end of her term get here already?

    Posted by: MrRoboto | Oct 3, 2013 4:28:15 PM

  17. Of course, they're getting paid and they don't have to work. Oh wait, they've been doing that for 6 years at least.

  18. This is not about the GOP - it's about the American People.

    Posted by: robertL | Oct 3, 2013 7:01:00 PM

  19. She is happy because she thinks she's part of the last laugh on the "colored president" she can't stand. She probably even thinks after climbing through a few high profile government positions he isn't even a US know that birther BS. Which is funny. Don't you think somebody would have checked back when he was a senator that he had a US birth certificate. This is why I can't follow the GOP because it is so evident that he is a US citizen and the fact that they think there is a conspiracy....still...has me wonder if their prescriptions for bi-polar disorder are not covered under the government care act anymore. Seriously she's making Minnesota regret their voting power everyday!

  20. Vapid tool.

  21. She's still bucking for that post-Congress job with Fox Noise ... though it's hard to picture her blond.

  22. PRETTY SURE she's a sociopath.

    --The WIC nutrition program for poor women and THEIR INFANTS is turning away applicants due to the shutdown.
    --The NIH is turning away children WITH CANCER for new and exciting treatments because they are understaffed do to the shutdown.
    --About 900,000 Federal workers are without income.

    (All of these are eminently Googleable if you wanna fact-check any of it! Except that I got the NIH bit from a public FB post by an NIH physician.)

    And this sick b.tch is "the happiest she's been in a long time"?

    Posted by: redball | Oct 4, 2013 7:19:37 AM

  23. Forgot to mention that the children with cancer are children for whom traditional treatments had failed. That is, these children literally NEED access to these new treatments.

    Also, I am one of the 900,000 federal employees currently on furlough and not getting paid during this f.cktastic shutdown. this raggedy b.tch.

  24. I want to also mention the impact on local businesses. Where I work, here in DC, there are tons of federal buildings and tons of family-owned eateries that depend upon the breakfast-time and lunchtime business of federal workers. I haven't seen much in the media on this issue, but I'm sure those businesses are being hit TREMENDOUSLY.

  25. Can somebody just throw a bucket of water on her? She'll melt away instantly.
