Bachmann as Joke

Last week, sixth district representative Michele Bachmann was reelected. Most people are upset about this. “What a joke people must think we are!” is the cry coming from most Minnesotans. And that’s fine. Be upset. I, on the other hand, have found a gigantic silver lining: two more years (at least!) of Michele Bachmann.

Obvious, you might think. But I am not looking forward to two more years of having my neighbors to the north and east represented by some blithering idiot, I’m looking forward to the blither itself. What will she grace us with next?

I’ve tried to come up with some witty exaggerations for examples of what Michele Bachmann might say, but they all seem too plausible. We’ll just have to wait and see. And there will be nothing to do but laugh and maybe vote in 2010.

    I sincerely hope she runs against Amy Klobuchar for the senate in 2012. I know that’s a long time to wait, but it would totally be worth it to finally see Bachman get schooled.

    At least Bachman will remain marginalized in the minority for the next term, and hopefully longer.

    I think that someone should send a note to the crew over at the Daily Show telling them to keep an eye on her. Without Bush to tear into for the next four years, they’re going to need some fodder. Bachman is a gold mine of gaffes.

    I wonder if she’ll make an attempt to kiss Obama after his first State of the Union address…

    Genius!

    To a certain extent I’m with you. The only thing I love more than some Bachman crazy-talk is trying to figure out where the periods go in Sarah Palin’s sentences.
