Bachmann To Obama: Thank You For Being Demonic

I don't know what it is about Michele Bachmann, but she inspires weird things to happen in my head....

Her latest weirdness:

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed a mixture of condemnation and appreciation toward President Barack Obama for, in her words, bringing the world to end times.

"We need to cry out to a Holy God," Bachmann said on Jan Markell's "Understanding the Times" radio show over the weekend. "This is coming faster than anyone can see."

"Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon," she said. "Why? Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of madmen who are Islamic radicals?"

Bachmann, however, then seemed to approve of the President moving mankind into "the midnight hour."

"We get to be living in the most exciting time in history," she said, urging fellow Christians to "rejoice."

"Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus Christ returning to Earth, the Rapture of the Church."

"These are wonderful times," she concluded.

Bachmann made similar remarks on Markell's show last week.

"We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That's good news."


OK - ready for more weird? As I read that article, for some strange reason Andrew Gold's hit single (and theme for the Golden Girls) "Thank You For Being A Friend"....kept going through my head. I have no explanation - it just happened.

Which naturally led me to what would be Michele Bachmann's version of the lyrics. So hum that tune along as you check these lyrics out....

Thank you for being demonic,
Pushed the apocalypse and brought the Son,
your heart is cold, you're Satan and a evil man.

You can count on me to say,
I'm alway there - I'll always be this way
My brain is whacked, won't you smile and take a bow.

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone we knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
and the card attatched would say,
Thank you for being demonic.

Thank you for being demonic
Thank you for being demonic
Thank you for being demonic

If it's nuclear you lack
I'd help to get your back
Whatever it takes, any time or any kind of might.

You can count on me to say,
I'm always there - I'll always be this way
My brain is fried, won't you smile and take a bow.

And since we won't get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
There's no fear, even though it's hard to hear
I will take my Bible and say,
Thank you for being demonic

(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic
(I want to thank you)
Let me tell you bout demonic
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being demonic

And as the rapture comes, I float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You'll hear me call, as I ascend
Won't see you here, but once again
Thank you for being demonic.

"It's Boring"

Category: Michele Bachmann

Here is a Michele Bachmann quote at the Value Voters Summit....

"It's not an issue," before walking off and adding, "In fact, it's boring."

And what was she referring to?

Gay Marriage.

You know, I feel like I was duped by the "moralists" who repeatedly stated that same sex marriage would be the end of civilization as we know it. The endless fights and threats and constitutional amendments....all of that for what is now a "boring" topic.

Michele Bachmann was a leader in those fights. She was at the forefront in the Minnesota legislature and she forced the issue in Congress. How many states put through amendments to their constitutions to enshrine discrimination in those documents, only to now have to fight with the courts on its constitutionality.

Now, it's boring.

Bachmann is so condescending about this issue that when same sex marriage advocates are beginning to win the argument, she no longer thinks it is worth her time.

As Bachmann leaves Congress we can only hope that she will be a forgotten piece of history in the fight for the rights of individuals. All the years of bitter confrontation and false rhetoric has been a sham... and Michele Bachmann will, I am sure, offer no apologies.

Bachmann should go down in the books in the same manner as Joe McCarthy...instilling false fear into the public for personal gain.

I am glad you are retiring from Congress, Ms. Bachmann. I wish it could have been with dignity.

Michele Bachmann - Trying To Separate Parody From Reality

Category: Michele Bachmann
Posted: 07/31/14 12:44

by Dave Mindeman

Sometimes it is hard to distinguish parody from truth when it comes to Michele Bachmann. Recently a bunch of liberal sites were duped into believing that Michele Bachmann had said that the administration was going to force undocumented children in Americanized labor camps.

Its not that the statement was outrageous exactly, (although it certainly would be) its that it just "sounds" like something she would say. So everybody took it to be true.

Well, no sooner does that dustup blow over, then she says this on a radio talk show....

"Well, I will tell you from personal experience, we don't have enough foster parents now in the country for the kids in America. We certainly don't have enough foster parents for all of the illegal aliens that the president is trying to bring in right now." The progressive group People For the American Way posted the audio on its Right Wing Watch blog Wednesday afternoon.

Bachmann said that hospitals could "get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody," suggesting that the hospitals could do that research on undocumented children. "A little kid can't say no if they're a ward of the state," said Bachmann. "So here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say no. It's sick."


Bachmann has become the standard for GOP crazy. Pretty soon she will become a verb.

Boy, that Congressman really Bachmanned that statement.

Don't go there. Don't Bachmann that speech.

If you're going to Bachmann the press conference, then you are finished.

Only a matter of time.
