Michele Bachmann's Compelling Logic: Obama Is 'Extremely Wealthy' So Vote Romney

News

Michele Bachmann would like to remind you people that, if you want to make America say "What the actual fuck?" there is absolutely no need totalk to an empty chair. This woman does not need any silly props to work her magic. (Besides, the job of right-wing prop comic is already taken, thank you very much.) And so Michele ramped up the old-school cray-cray when a USA Today reporter asked her whether a bloated plutocrat like Mitt Romney could "connect with the American public, really understand what [sic] the plight of the American public?"


"Well, President Obama is extremely wealthy. He and his wife have been wealthy for a number of years, and so I think that’s really the issue. President Obama is wealthy, what do, or -- what does he understand about the common man right now? And I think what people care about is not hating someone for what their assets are -- the American people don’t hate President Obama because he’s a very wealthy individual."

We will go out on a very thin limb here and suggest that, in Michele Bachmann's mind, Americans will make no distinction between a candidate whose net worth is $7 million and a candidate whose net worth is somewhere between $250 million and maybe as much as $1 billion. But she can't actually come out and say, "Look, almost all of us in Washington are just rolling around in enormous piles of money. Really, Romney's not that much more out of touch than the rest of us disgustingly rich people." So instead, she just shut off after saying that Obama is "extremely wealthy." Having painted the merely wealthy President as equivalent to the obscenely wealthy Romney, Bachmann explained what really matters to the peons:

"What they care about is how their lives are, would their lives be better? And I think it’s very clear under the Romney-Ryan ticket the average Americans’ lives will be much better, they’ll have a lot more money to spend in the way that they want, and they’ll also have a much more secure future for their children."

Exactly where the average family will find all that extra money after they've paid the higher taxes the Romney-Ryan plan would require, Bachmann could not say. Possibly from their offshore accounts?

Today we are having a Very Serious Conversation about how liberals are very uncivil and mean and terrible and vulgar, because a restaurant in Virginia very nicely asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to GTFO, due to how she is an atrocious liar who works for a fascist. (The restaurant comped the cheese plates that had already been served.) Meanwhile the president is threatening 79-year-old black congresswomen on Twitter and ripping babies away from their parents and just generally being a fascist. BOTH SIDES DO IT, ISN'T THAT RIGHT, VERY SERIOUS PUNDITS?

Point is, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing her first White House press briefing in a week, assuming she doesn't wuss out like she always does. Will she lie? Will she cry? Will she be a sack of shit like she always is? Most importantly, has she managed to find a meal since she was kicked out of the Red Hen? We certainly hope she's managed to find a Chick-fil-A or something, as we wouldn't want Our Sarah to be forced to give a press briefing while hangry.

Let's liveblog and see what a foul asshole SHS feels like being today:

Last week, Nicole Arteaga of Peoria, Arizona received the devastating news from her doctor that her baby's development had stopped and that pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. Given the option of either a D&C or prescription medication, she chose to go with the prescription. Then, like all normal people do when they get a prescription, she went to a pharmacy to have it filled.

Unfortunately for her, Brian Hrenuic -- the pharmacist at the Walgreens she went to -- refused to give her that prescription, because he opposed it on "moral grounds."
