Escalation

First it was shouts of “Terrorist!” and “Kill him!” and “Off with his head!”, then it was death threats and hate mail, and now it’s bomb threats against the Senate and white powder at the NY Times.

I don’t know what’s coming next, but it will be bad.  And al Qaeda will have absolutely nothing to do with it.

Michelle Bachmann Doesn’t Have A Mind To Make Up…

Well, which is it, crazy lady?  Is Obama anti-American or isn’t he?

On the defensive over her controversial Hardball appearance last Friday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told the St. Cloud Times yesterday that she regretted suggesting that Barack Obama held “anti-American” views. But at the same time Bachmann was apologizing for her remarks to traditional media outlets, Bachmann continued to cast aspersions on Obama’s patriotism in a series of appearances on right-wing radio shows.

On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show yesterday, Bachmann declared that “Barack Obama’s views are against America”:

BACHMANN: All I did on Chris Matthews is I questioned Chris Matthews and said, “look, if John McCain had friends like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and Father Pfleger, you’d be all over him Chris, but you’ve laid off of Barack Obama.” And so, he was using the word “Anti-American” and I told Chris, what I question are Barack Obama’s views. Because Barack Obama’s views are against America. They won’t be good for our country.

On Mike Gallagher’s radio show this morning, Bachmann attacked Obama’s policy proposals, asking rhetorically, “Are they for America or will they be against traditional American ideals and values?”:

BACHMANN: And they can’t take it because the point is what are Barack Obama’s policies? Are they for America or will they be against traditional American ideals and values? And I’ll tell you what. Punishing tax rates, redistribution of wealth, socialized medicine, inputing censorship in the form of the un-Fairness Doctrine and taking away the secret ballot from the worker has nothing to do with traditional American values. That’s why your listeners need to know. Otherwise the United States may be literally changed forever.

I guess she just regretted calling Obama anti-American on national television where everyone could see Teh Crazy, not just her hardcore right-wing base.  It sure as hell doesn’t look like she’s backing away from it any.

Boy howdy, do I want to see her go down in flames.  I hope El Tinklenberg is using his unexpected windfall to air some nice footage of her at her loony best.  Click here if you want to give him some help.

Wednesday Why-I-Love-The-Weekly-World-News Blogging

Uh-oh, this can’t be good:

The Chaos Cloud was [sighted] hovering high above western Ohio yesterday. Small particles of dust fell on Toledo as the Chaos Cloud moved southeasterly heading in the direction of Columbus, the Ohio state capitol.

Many believe the Chaos Cloud will remain over Ohio in this key election period as accusations of voter tampering, registration fraud, and robo-calling continue to plague this pivotal swing state.

With Ohio playing the deciding role in the 2004 election, both campaigns have dispatched hundreds of lawyers and thousands of unpaid volunteers to monitor the election.

Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner told a press conference, “We are taking every precaution to make sure the accusations of 2004 are not repeated.  The emergence of The Chaos Cloud shows just how important a role Ohio plays.”

While the Chaos Cloud is believed to be non-partisan and unaffiliated with either party, no one is eager to see it show a preference by descending upon earth any earlier than its scheduled 2014 reign of destruction.

Why would a Chaos Cloud have a schedule?  Isn’t that kind of counter to everything a Chaos Cloud stands for?
