Michele “Mama Che” Bachmann strikes again!
I’m fast coming to believe that there is no better entertainment on this planet than keeping up with that great American revolutionary, Michele “Mama Che” Bachmann.
Speaking today to conservative media outlet Pajamas TV, Bachmann noted the “interesting coincidence” that swine flu outbreaks occur when the Democrats are in power. While Bachmann generously noted that she’s not blaming swine flu on President Obama (unlike Rush Limbaugh who blamed Obama for giving pig flu to the Mexicans), she nevertheless remains fascinated by the mysterious connection between Democrats and the killer flu virus.
What is even more fascinating – but hardly a coincidence- is that Bachmann didn’t have her facts quite right. The last outbreak of swine flu in this country occurred in 1976 when an Army private based at Fort Dix in New Jersey died from the virus while four others were hospitalized. Who was president in 1976? Gerald Ford…. Republican.
In the words of another great American, Bugs Bunny, “What a ma-roon.”
