Crazy eyes Shelly Bachmann waltzes back in to the old neighborhood to remind us all that she is still one of the most obnoxiously dumb, and hysterically vituperative nitwits on the fucking planet:
Former Minnesota U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is comparing President Obama to the mentally unstable co-pilot who authorities believe intentionally crashed his German airliner last week in the French Alps and killed everyone onboard.
In a posting Tuesday on her Facebook page she wrote, “With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings (sic) flight — a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?”
The United States is engaged in multinational negotiations aimed at trying to persuade Iran to limit its capability to produce nuclear weapons.http://www.startribune.com/local/298303601.html
To think this cross-eyed moron woman once sat on the House Intelligence Committee makes The Gadfly violently ill to his stomach, albeit eternally grateful that she and her idiocy spewing piehole miraculously managed to avoid causing some international incident and touching off World War III.
And the fact that she was on that committee is prima facie evidence of just how extremist and out of touch with reality that the Republican party has become. That committee assignment would be the equivalent of putting a science denying, fundamentalist religious nutjob in in a position of influence on the House Science Committee . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . wait for it . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Congressman Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said last week that evolution and the big bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of Hell."
"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell," said Broun, who is an MD. "It's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."
"You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."
According to NBC News, Broun's comments were part of a larger speech given at the 2012 Sportsman's Banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia on September 27th. A clip of the video was distributed by the The Bridge Project, a liberal watchdog group.
Broun is a high-ranking member of the House Science Committee, of which Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is also a member.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/06/paul-broun-evolution-big-bang_n_1944808.html
Sigh . . . . . it's not a pleasant thing to think about, but every day that passes, The Gadfly is ever more certain that this country will someday have to suffer the karmic consequences of tolerating and abetting these people's epic ignorance and assholery.
