Even Fox News is now laughing at Michelle Bachmann
For those who cannot bear to watch Fox News or hear Bachmann’s voice (I am with you… nails on a chalkboard), here is some quotes from Think Progress:
During an interview with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Cavuto belittled the effort as “an enormous waste of effort” and “a political football,” suggesting that President George W. Bush used similar executive authority.
The segment devolved into a shouting match, with Cavuto laughing off Bachmann’s indignation about Obama’s use of executive powers.
“It just seems to me like an enormous waste of effort,” Cavuto said, at first gently, trying to chide Bachmann and her Tea Party Republican colleagues in Congress to do something, you know, governance-related for the American people. “It just seems to me there’s so much wrong here, this finger-pointing—’We’re gonna drag your ass to court, we’re gonna do this’— just do something, you hear what I’m saying?”
Bachmann: This is what we should do now. What we should do now is defund the executive branch when we have the option—I just ran across the street because we’re voting on funding for the executive branch all summer long. Cut it. Make it hurt. Because if they don’t have money, they don’t have power…
Cavuto: Think about what you’re saying. Defund the executive branch? Congresswoman! If Democrats had said to you, ‘We’re going to defund President Bush,’ you would laugh them out, and so you should have… I think the Democrats are in their right mind to laugh you out now. Defund them?! [shakes head] …Oh man oh man oh man oh man. Rome’s burning and you’re filing!
Defunding? Is Michelle Bachmann aware that the President of the United States has to sign anything that the unified Congress (the House and the Senate) passes before it takes affect as law? Yes, yes, yes, he could veto something and then the Congress can override, but that ain’t happening in this Congress. So let’s say the House somehow passes a Defunding Bill that cancels all money already appropriated to the Executive Branch from last year’s budget act. Does she think the Senate passes it? If she does, she needs a straight jacket. Does she think the President signs it if by some miracle it passes a Democratically controlled Senate?
I really do think all these Teabagger Congressmen and women are just as dumb as rocks. Seriously, I used to think they were evil. And they probably still are. But they are also the most unintelligent pieces of shit ever to walk the halls of our legislative branch. I really do not think Bachmann understands how a bill becomes a law. I really don’t. I know Senator Ted Cruz doesn’t. He demonstrated that with his filibuster thing last year.
More evidence of the combination of evil, childish vindictiveness and lack of brain power is this: House Republicans may have accidentally legalized pot use in DC. LOLz.
