With the news that Rep. Michele Bachmann’s main Democratic challenger Elwyn Tinklenberg would not be taking her on again in 2010, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann thought that it was time to pay tribute to his favorite wing nut. Consider this video a best of Bachmann.
Olbermann brought up the point that with a highlight reel like this one, Bachmann should be self defeating, but for some strange reason she isn’t. The people in her district should be embarrassed. She is making them all look completely insane anytime she opens her mouth in front of a microphone. However, being that these people have seen fit to reelect Bachmann, I shudder at what they would consider an adequate replacement.
At a time when the Republican Party is full of crazies, Bachmann may be their queen. She possesses a combination of stupidity and paranoia that is hard to beat. This is woman who manages to mangle her own Republican talking points.
It makes me wonder what she spends her days doing, because she obviously isn’t studying policy. Bachmann should have been an easy target for the Democrats, but there must be something in the water up in the sixth district of Minnesota that makes her seem like a wise choice.
