On WCCO Sunday Morning, Michele Bachmann was a guest...and once again proves that the crazy will not go away.
Fresh off her 6th District send off yesterday, she vaulted into another round of Benghazi fantasy. During the interview she stated that Hillary Clinton failed a test for commander in chief by not sending a rescue party to protect the heroes there.
You have to wonder why a member of the House Intelligence Committee would think that the Secretary of State can authorize troops to undertake a military mission.
Where does she get this stuff? How can she be considered competent? How in the world does she pass a background check?
Bachmann tells us that she will continue to be engaged in politics. She is not going away. She wouldn't even rule out another run for President in 2016.
She will not go quietly into that good night.
It is embarrassing that she has represented Minnesota. Even though she disowned us during her Presidential run and ran as an Iowa native daughter, we are forced to take the "credit" for giving her prominence.
She has come a long way from her hiding in the bushes days. Now she is out in the open, front and center, and continuing to publicize some of the craziest ideas ever uttered.
She may not be in Congress after next January, but she has a deeply disturbed cult following who will give her money, listen to her every word, and follow her to the ends of the earth. Literally, the ends of the earth because they still think it is flat.
In some ways, it is necessary for Bachmann to exist. Because she embodies a portion of the Republican Party that can't be vocalized any other way. The deep mistrust of government with all of its conspiratorial offshoots has Bachmann as its champion. She believes in all of those theories. She believes the Bible verifies it all. She has God on her side - and thus the argument ends. She is right - even when the facts prove her completely wrong.
No, Bachmann is not going away. She will find a camera somewhere and bring the crazy front and center.
Yes, Minnesota, you have been represented by that. And also realize that she thinks Tom Emmer is the perfect choice to succeed her.
Think about that, 6th District. Really - Think about that.
