Tea Party Honcho to Bachmann: GTFO, Crazy-Eyes!

image

Weh-heh-hell! Michele Bachmann is discovering that it’s sharper than a serpent’s tooth to have a thankless constituency. Wholly-owned Koch Industries subsidiary Ned Ryun of the wholly-owned Koch Industries subsidiary “American Majority” teabagger Astroturf outfit writes the following:

It’s time for Michele Bachmann to go.  For the last two years, I’ve been cautioning about the dangers of individuals or organizations trying to present themselves as leaders of the Tea Party movement.  An individual personality or organization purporting to be a “leader” of what is truly a grassroots movement can hurt the tea party brand by creating false impressions about its core beliefs.

Since her meteoric rise this summer and win in the Iowa Straw poll, her campaign has been plagued by losses of top staff, lackluster fundraising and a seeming lack of direction. Bachmann’s resulting plunge in the polls is troubling for the tea party, not because “one of their own” is losing her footing, but because the longer Bachmann stays in the race, the more likely we will see her shift to the right.  This rightward shift will come as the campaign works to hold on to its more conservative base of support in advance of the release of Bachmann’s new book next month.

Okay, first of all, Michele Bachmann can’t shift any further to the right unless she outfits her 237 foster children in brown shirts and stages a putsch at the Mall of America Starbucks. Ryun goes on to opine that Bachmann’s desperate attempts to out-Jesus her opponents and express an even more reverent devotion to zygotes might obscure the teabaggers’ true focus, which Ryun claims is “limited government, fiscal responsibility and accountability from our elected officials.”

What a steaming load of horseshit. Ryun wants to dump Crazy Eyes over the side like a crate of imported tea leaves because he doesn’t want her loser cooties infesting his Colonial Williamsburg breeches. But that horse has already sailed.

Michelle Bachmann is a national defense treasure, and needed possibly for our very survival on planet earth. If an asteroid draws a bead on us, those wicked laser eyes could be used to break that puppy up, and save the day. Bet you dint think of that there, Ms Cracker.

So how long, exactly, did it take for these folks to realize that their high-profile Tea Party celebrities are so crazy and up-front with the extreme TP message that it’s undermining the TP moneymen’s ability to elect nuts and implement insane, delusional policy under the stealth cloud of “commonsense”?

@General: What if the asteroid were going to hit a mooslim country? Wouldn’t Michele have to wait and see where the crater might be before using those laser eyes? At which time it might be too late.

Why yes, absolutely.

So how long, exactly, did it take for these folks to realize that their high-profile Tea Party celebrities are so crazy and up-front with the extreme TP message ...

Not sure, but it must get tiring, not to mention embarrassing, to have to claim your leaders are actually liberal infiltrators all the time.

That’s some damn fine writing.

That’s some damn fine writing.

Seconded.

An individual personality or organization purporting to be a “leader” of what is truly a grassroots movement can hurt the tea party brand by creating false impressions about its core beliefs.

 

So ... Shut up? Oh that’s right. The Teahadists are not truly a grassroots movement. Never mind.

From Darling of the Tea Party to Guest Who Overstayed Her Welcome in about two short years.  Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

Insert door/butt analogy here.

This is simply a reaction to that consierge-on-a-gay-porn-loveboot uniform she wore at the last rethug debate*. 

*Also known as the shoutyface panderfest let’s-all-whack-Mittens-athon.

It’s not so much she’s not conservative enough but that she’s conservative in the wrong ways.

... her campaign has been plagued by losses of top staff, lackluster fundraising and a seeming lack of direction

Precisely the same could be said of Herman Cain, except he’s polling well at the moment. So I look forward to an endless bobblehead debate about whether the Tea Party has a sexism problem, or a racism one.

@YAFB.  Yes.  (Both).

The Lipton Teabaggers and Bachmann deserve each other.  They need to get a room.

Wolf Blitzer asked Bachmann about this on The Situation Room:

Well, of course, we found out that this is really a misstep on the part of the Perry campaign because these are Perry supporters that came out. This was a clumsy move. This was meant to be a stealth move to make it look like this was Tea Party, and apparently, these are Perry supporters that came out and it was just a clumsy move on their part to make this statement.

If Governor Perry has something to say to me, he can come out to the debates and he say it. But this was clearly - this egg on the face, unfortunately, for the Perry campaign. It certainly isn’t a blow to my campaign because I’ve had non-stop support coming out of the woodwork from Tea Partiers all across the country ever since this came out.

Blitzer then asked her:

Do you have any evidence that it was directed or that the Perry campaign got this American Majority group involved in this? Any hard evidence, or is that just a surmise?

Hey, Wolf, this is Michele Bachmann you’re talking to:

No, this is something that people have told us, that these are Perry supporters and they went out with this and this was meant to be a stealth move and it was clumsy.

BTW. I love your writing Betty Cracker

So I look forward to an endless bobblehead debate about whether the Tea Party has a sexism problem, or a racism one.

I’m sure Mother-May-I McEwan will tell us exactly how to think about that. Preferably with a generous sprinkling of trigger warnings, also. Too.

Gawd Ferbid that the purity of the Tea Party[tm] ever gets sullied by the ravings of a few nutjobs.

And, have you heard? Those Occupy folks are all loser dirty hippy wanna-be anarchists who have nothing better to do than defecate in the streets.

So much for the Shining City on a Hill. And we were so close!
