But…of course, Michele Bachmann has a new solution to the humanitarian crisis of refugees along the US/ Mexico border.


Come Saturday Morning: Frank, Tom and Michele’s Not-So-Happy Anniversary

By: Saturday October 26, 2013 6:45 am

Frank Vennes, whose son Denley claims (apparently truthfully) to have been a White House intern during the George W. Bush administration, and who could count Michele Bachmann among his high-powered friends, has now gone back to prison, possibly for the last time, because of Tom Petters and his Ponzi scheme.

Late Night: They Must Love Us Now

By: Thursday July 25, 2013 8:00 pm

As I watched the first tiny peep of congressional rebellion against the odious, authoritarian policies that have swamped America since The Day That Changed Everything narrowly defeated in the House yesterday, I was reminded of the endlessly repeated, tinny refrain of those dark days, “They hate us for our freedom.” According to such preschool logic, the “Patriot Act,” passed nearly unanimously a few weeks later, should have fixed that once and for all.

Still a Ton of Crazy

John McCain, the Republican Senator from Arizona and the bringer of the Palin, went to Syria this past week. He met with the “good” rebels who want to overthrow Bashar al-Assad and then become America’s bestest friends once they take over.

Senator McCain says we can identify the “good” rebels and then arm them. He has a point…what could possibly go wrong with a plan to give radicalized Muslims a bunch of weapons with which they can overthrow a repressive secular regime that is backed by the Russians who have propped up the secular regime with gifts of weapons and money?

What a coincidence…

Suddenly, the soon to have more free-time on her hands has a good reason to come to Iowa again.

Late Night: Bachmann’s Off-Key Swan Song

By: Wednesday May 29, 2013 8:00 pm

Let’s put it this way: If Michele Bachmann really wasn’t in electoral trouble against Jim Graves – who almost beat her last year in a CD that had been made even more Republican than before by the removal of Stillwater, and in a contest that the national Democrats ignored after the 2010 debacle – why did she start running ads two weeks ago, nearly eighteen months before the next election?

Michele Bachmann Will Not Seek Re-Election

By: Wednesday May 29, 2013 6:40 am

Darling of the far right Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will not be seeking re-election in 2014. Bachmann announced the decision on her website in a video that never disclosed why she was not running other than hints at something bigger in the future.

Late Night: Is Andy Parrish Michele Bachmann’s Banshee?

By: Sunday May 19, 2013 8:00 pm

See, until fairly recently, Andy Parrish was as loyal to Michele Bachmann as a Republican can be loyal to anything outside of the Almighty Dollar. For him to cooperate in this way with the authorities makes me think that there’s got to be something big and juicy here — and I’m guessing that once they get that particular big-and-juicy thing nailed down, they want to build a bridge from that thing to some other big-and-juicy things: Frank Vennes and Tom Petters.

Come Saturday Morning: The Bloom is Off the Bachmann Rose

By: Saturday March 23, 2013 6:45 am

Less than a year ago, Michele Bachmann seemed to be the Golden Girl of the GOP and its Tea Party base. Now, she’s facing a primary challenger for next year.

Late Night: Questions for Michele Bachmann

By: Friday March 15, 2013 8:00 pm

You may have been wondering what Michele Bachmann has been up to ever since her too-close-for-comfort win over a challenger she outspent by more than twelve-to-one in a district that had just had its most liberal part (namely the city of Stillwater) removed. Then again, you may not have, but I’m going to tell you anyway.
