A few days ago, Paddy posted Video- SNL: We Did Stop (The Government), a strangely entertaining little parody starring "John Boehner" and "Michele Bachmann" (as played by tongue enthusiast Miley Cyrus). They spoofed the GOP shutdown with their version of “We Can’t Stop."
The "real" Michele Bachmann commented about all that and more in a conference call on a conservative talk show hosted by Rusty Humphries. After going into her usual "impeach President Obama" routine, she responded to the SNL sketch.
Via Right Wing Watch:
...Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota suggested that the House hold hearings on impeaching the president. Bachmann said that “impeachment is the stain” on the presidency and “We can have an impeachment hearing in the House and in my mind the President has committed impeachable offenses.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever so anyway blah blah blah...
“You know, I have a good sense of humor and I never take that personally."
"...The Monday after Saturday Night Live aired, we had a lot of calls in the office, and we had people thought that actually was me in the skit. And let me tell you, as a 57-year-old woman, it’s been a long time since I’ve been confused for a 20 year old.”
“I’ve never done twerking in my life and I don’t intend to take it up.”
Twerk-Free Bachmann? I never thought I'd say these two words to 'Chele, but here I go: Thank you.

Man, this dud does not deserve a platform. If I wanted to hear this shit, I'd just go hang out on Calle Ocho and lose at dominoes. Something about the acorn and tree. Via.
Listen to Rush Limbaugh wheeze his latest misogynistic shock-jockitude through his mouth-breathing face, via Media Matters:
"The 24- and 25-year-old female millennials are scared out of their panties by me. And hopefully some male millennials are close by to take advantage of that when that happens."
No, Rush, they're not scared. They're repulsed.
So women voters, I have to ask: Does this guy really appeal to you?
Is this the vile, bottom-feeding spokesbeast who you choose to represent you?
Do you share his wish for male millennials to "take advantage" of your daughters', nieces', granddaughters', and/or sisters' shed "panties"?
Is this the kind of message you want your daughters and sons to embrace?
If so, how very sad for you. You need as much help as he does.
