Michelle Bachmann Is Not a Jimmy Protector

Michelle Bachmann continues to deliver steaming piles of stoopid...

“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.”

One problem, though, as ShortsandPants notes, the year was 1976 and the president was Republic [sic] Gerald Ford.

In 1976, an Army recruit at Ford Dix, New Jersey, complained that he was feeling tired and weak. He died the following day. After Swine flu was diagnosed panicked officials persuaded Gerald Ford that the entire population needed vaccination. About 40 million people were vaccinated before another fear took hold - that the vaccine was more dangerous than the disease - and the programme was aborted.

Pray for a Palin/Bachman ticket.

Goddamn, that woman is dumber than a bag of hammers!

Between Coleman and Bachmann, Minnesotans seem to have a high tolerance for embarrassment.

Going with Betty’s theme she’s also so scrawny her husband thinks he sleeps with a bag of antlers.

[insert generic wish that Michele Bachmann die a slow and painful death from the disease she exploits for partisan purposes here]

Can we just impeach Barocky now and get it over and done with? I mean, this is getting uglier by the minute for our 100-day wonder. Bachmann’s genius, coupled with Specter’s defection has got to be great news for McCain.

Goddamn, that woman is dumber than a bag of hammers!

Hey, hey, hey! None of that. Hammers are a useful tool that no household should be without.

Bachmann is just a tool.

Uh-oh Roastafarians ... I smell a prowl of epic proportions a-comin’!

Best place for up to the minute reportage on the Phlying Pig Phlu is at

which is a science blog where they do those facty things.

I thought Dana said:

Beyond the fact that what Bachmann said was stupid and irrelevant in the first place, it should be noted that the first occurrence of a Swine Flu outbreak was in 1976, when Gerald Ford, the republican, was president.

Unless he edited that without me knowing. What a bastard that Dana is—- ALWAYS going after poor Michelle Bachmann.

Beware, liberals!  Michelle Bachmann will destroy you all with her razor-sharp wit, deep fund of historical knowledge, and amazing powers of logical deduction!

Why has the GOP become the party of “ots”—bigots, zealots and idiots?

I thought Dana said

Not saying ShortsandPants isn’t an authoritative source, but wanted to link to and quote a news site for confirmation that it was, in fact, Ford.

HAHAHA Kevin of course ShortsandPants isn’t a reliable source! Do you think I research anything? THAT’S THE FUN OF IT. Shooting from the hip and all that, like Iraq!

Your daily quota of Bachmann crayzee:

Ye gods!  I suppose that Bachmann might fall under all three of my “ots” categories.
