Whoa hey you guys, blast from the past, but Michele Bachmann A) is still a tree that falls in the forest even if literally nobody is around to hear it make a sound and B) TIMBERRRRRRRR!

She was on one o' them prophesyin' radio shows, little outfit called "Understanding the Times," and she said:

"In my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump," Bachmann [said]. "He is highly biblical and I would say to your listeners [that] we will, in all likelihood, never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetime. So we need to be not only praying for him, we need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way that we can."

Ayup yup yup yup yup. Yup yup yup yup yup.

Yup yup yup yup yup yup.

So I said to the Lord Donald Trump, "you promised me, Lord Dear Leader, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?

The Lord Donald Trump replied, "The times when you have seen only one set of footprints ...

is when I was carrying you by the pussy."

Ayup yup yup yup yup.

Annnnnnnnnnd Michele Bachmann also said a thing about how we need to pray for God to expose the Deep State, so we guess Michele Bachmann's "God" is one of Devin Nunes's cows or something.

We get what she's saying, though. No, this is serious talk, hear us out! (That's right, JOKES ARE OVER for this post, because putting a grab 'em by the pussy joke in the Footprints poem was just fucking art, OK, and you have gotten more than your money's worth already.)

Used to be, conservative evangelical voters were useful idiots for the establishment GOP, sweaty rubes they played for culture war votes during campaigns then mostly ignored except for throwing a few meaningless bones every now and then. With Trump, they are useful idiots being used for their votes by a con-man, but in THIS case, they are getting like at least three more bones per month! It's like they understand they'll always be somebody's useful idiots, and if that's the case, they're going with the thrice-married adulterer pussy-grabber piece of shit who sells America's institutions to the highest bidder. Because hey, HE'S PACKING THE COURTS! He banned the transgenders from the military! He's legit racist, and, like ... so are they!

This is why it's actually stupid and counter-productive to constantly point out to them that Trump is an amoral piece of shit who probably doesn't even say grace before he sinks his chompers into 40 Big Macs every night. They don't care. For all their proclamations about their morality, they actually give zero organic free range cage-free shits about morality. They care about winning and imposing their theocratic beliefs on people, thereby preserving the white patriarchy without which they don't even understand where they fit in society.

Donald Trump is just smart enough that he knew early on that he needed to grab conservative Christian voters by the pussy and refuse to let go early and often. (They just let him do it, because he's a celebrity.)

Hey, remember that time Trump rushed directly from North Carolina to the Moscow Miss Universe pageant in 2013 because he was literally coming straight from Billy Graham's fucking birthday party? Believe us, it's not because he and the reverend were prayer partners. He reportedly knew way back then that he was setting himself up for a presidential run (a distinctly Russian one), and he was cultivating the kings and the queens of all the useful fucking idiots, and guess who is one of his most craven fucking loser piece of shit supporters to this very day? That's right, Franklin Graham, the thing what sprung from Billy's loins.

Funny how that happened.

In summary and in conclusion, this has been a post about Michele Bachmann, which is just something that's rarely said on the internet these days, so we imagine she's pleased. This has also been a post about how it's a waste of your goddamned time to play "gotcha!" games with conservative Christian Trump supporters using metrics of common morality, because they weren't distinctly moral beings in the first place, IN JESUS'S NAME, AMEN.

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
