Michele Bachmann Sees Dead Countries


You really can't make this stuff up.

During a visit to the "Jay Sekulow Live" radio program, Presidential candidate and noted imbecile Michele Bachmann said, and I am not kidding, that Americans are afraid of the rise of the Soviet Union.

The Soviet Union. THE SOVIET UNION! That would be the political entity that has not existed in over twenty years, and hasn't been a serious threat since shoulder padded shirts were in style. Here's the full quote.

"I would say it's a unified message. It really is about jobs and the economy. That doesn't mean people haven't [sic] forgotten about protecting life and marriage and the sanctity of the family. People are very concerned about that as well. But what people recognize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline," she said.

"They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we have done is given a favor to President Obama and the first thing he'll whack is five hundred billion out of the military defense at a time when we're fighting three wars. People recognize that."

In my completely unscientific poll (I asked one person who happened to also be logged on to Facebook), 100% of Americans think that anyone who believes the Soviet Union is a threat does not deserve to be President...unless we build a time machine, and they run in the 1984 election against Zombie Ronald Reagan.

I suppose this will bring more heat to the debate, "Which unqualified female candidate is the bigger doofus?" As of three days ago, I would have argued that Sarah Palin was clearly in the lead. But now? I'm not so sure.

At least Sarah Palin knew it was Russia, not the Soviet Union, that she was seeing from her yard.
