Michele Bachmann hides from invisible gay stalker

Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone (via Barry Ritholtz):

Bachmann’s entire political career has followed this exact same pattern of God-speaks-directly-to-me fundamentalism mixed with pathological, relentless, conscienceless lying. She’s not a liar in the traditional way of politicians, who tend to lie dully, usefully and (they hope) believably, often with the aim of courting competing demographics at the same time. That’s not what Bachmann’s thing is. Bachmann lies because she can’t help it, because it’s a built-in component of both her genetics and her ideology. She is at once the most entertaining and the most dangerous kind of liar, a turbocharged cross between a born bullshit artist and a religious fanatic, for whom lying to the infidel is a kind of holy duty.

As Matt Taibbi says, don’t underestimate her. The “ultimate reality show protagonist,” she’s a perfect illustration of how sociopaths have risen to power and now run the country. And, as Matt Taibbi says, there are millions of people willing to vote for her just because you laugh at her.

Congresswoman, if on the off-chance God guides you to read this, may He also inspire you to look up John 8:44b to learn where all lies, even those uttered out of the best intentions, come from. Resting your heels, my… donkey.

  1. Taibbi’s right when he usrges people not to underestimate her — unfortunately, that was one of the few things he got right. He smeared the town of Stillwater, acting as if it were a Bachmann stronghold when in fact its residents voted strongly against her. And he ignored all of the myriad scandals that could take her down if they were actually pursued with even half of the vigor the GOP/Media Complex gave to hounding Anthony Weiner over sexting.

    The moon is *not* made of green cheese. It’s made of *blue* cheese, and it goes very well with fresh apple pie. Nobody explains this sort of thing better than Michelle Bachmann.
