Outgoing Congresswoman Michele Bachmann found her advice to President Obama at the White House Christmas party on bombing Iran didn’t land exactly how she expected. Via Mediaite:
“I turned to the president and I said, something to the effect of, ‘Mr. President, you need to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities, because if you don’t, Iran will have a nuclear weapon on your watch and the course of world history will change,’” Bachmann said.
“And he got his condescending smile on his face and laughed at me and said, ‘Well Michele, it’s just not that easy.’
And I said to him, ‘No, Mr. President, you’re the president, it will happen on your watch, and you’ll have to answer to the world for this.’
And that was it and then I left. Merry Christmas.”

Can you believe she’s STILL not gone?
Rep. Michele Bachmann wants to hold a rally in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, December 3 at “high noon” on the west steps of the Capitol.
“We need to have a rally, and we need to go visit our senators and visit our congressmen, because nothing frightens a congressman like the whites of his constituents’ eyes.”
Bachmann wants Congress to defund Obama’s executive action on immigration reform.
Readers may remember Mark Kessler, former sheriff of a small rural Pennsylvania town who went viral last August with his gun-laden YouTube videos – which eventually got him suspended by his town council.
Well, he’s back.
The word “unhinged” comes to mind here. Who even knows what brought this on?
For all those folks who support everyone in the world having a gun – doesn’t this make you just a little bit uneasy?
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has issued an apology for his strange and bizarre rant yesterday in an interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN inferring that he was drunk at the time:
“I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae’s family. I want to apologize to my teammates and my management team. I also want to apologize to Chris Cuomo.
“I embarrassed a lot of people. I’m very sorry. At this point I should know better than to make political statements. I’m truly sorry. I had been drinking. It’s not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed.”
You can watch the crazy interview below.
In an interview on Fox News, the former half-term governor of Alaska shared her very sunny view of the fate of the GOP after dropping to record low approval numbers in light of the recent government shutdown debacle.
Palin joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night, and said that she’s not too worried about Ted Cruz’s efforts being defeated in Congress, saying that the right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than President Obama triumphant, and if they stay united next time, they could pull off an even bigger win.
Palin goes on to say Obama is out of touch and began an odd eye rolling rant against the president on a whole range of issues from Benghazi to “threatening to withhold paychecks” from members of the military during the shutdown.
Kelly pointed out that Republicans haven’t exactly done that well throughout the shutdown, and suggested this strategy has backfired so much that the GOP could lose the House. Palin was far more optimistic, saying, “If we stand united, well, then we won’t lose the House, and we could even win back the Senate.”
And sunshine and lollipops come to all who wish.
Dianne Reidy, the House Stenographer who took to the open mic at the podium following the shutdown vote to rant about God and the Freemasons, sent an email to FOX News explaining why she did it:
“For the past 2 and 1/2 weeks, the Holy Spirit has been waking me up in the middle of the night and preparing me (through my reluctance and doubt) to deliver a message in the House Chamber. That is what I did last night”
Her husband Dan says “My wife is a sweet, level-headed wonderful woman of God. I am proud of her.”
Very funny exchange on Twitter between the Washington Post and some crazy Tea Party person.
Quoting the opponents, kids. Quoting them.
Democrats say “Let’s sit down and negotiate” and the Tea Baggers rabidly yell “Shut down the government!!!”
Watch the clip, folks. The President quotes the opponents and in doing so underlines why the anti-Obamacare folks have no credibility. They just MAKE STUFF UP.
“One congressman said that Obamacare is the most dangerous piece of legislation ever passed,” Obama said in Largo, Md. “Ever, in the history of America, this is the most dangerous piece of legislation. Providing — creating a marketplace so people can buy group insurance plan, the most dangerous ever.”
“You had a state representative somewhere say that it’s as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act,” he added. “Think about that. Affordable health care is worse than a law that lets slave owners get their runaway slaves back. I mean, these are quotes. I’m not making this stuff up.”
“And here’s one more that I’ve heard. I like this one. We have to, and I’m quoting here, we have to repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens,” an incredulous Obama said. “Now, I have to say, that one was from six months ago. I just want to point out we still have women, we still have children, we still have senior citizens. All this would be funny if it wasn’t so crazy.”
