Michele Bachmann is running for president…or is she? According to legend (and this video below – the most painful and scary 2 minutes of your life, I assure you) she has expressly stated that she doesn’t make decisions for herself. Her husband, Marcus Bachmann, is responsible for that.
Michele Bachmann here in video says that her husband told her to go to a tax law school after attending “regular” law school (She attended Oral Roberts School of Law, a “Biblically-based” law school) . Because the Lord said women should be submissive to their husbands (must be some quote from the Bible), she went to tax school even though that isn’t what she wanted.
By the way, Michele Bachmann also worked for the IRS after her legal training, which is about the most ironic twist of events imaginable for the likes of her.
In any event, this video just illustrates plainly how nutso to the extreme this lady is. Shockingly, she is actually leading in favorable polls in Iowa.
Taking all this ‘God speaks through my husband’ nonsense, it does beg the question who exactly is running for president, Michelle, her husband or perhaps God? Since none of us can be sure it’s actually God doing the talking, let’s assume her husband’s voice. That’s even scarier than Michele as president. Take a look at Marcus Bachmann here.
I thought Nevada had it rough with Sharron Angle. Though now I’m starting to wonder if Michelle Bachmann is actually more crazy, just more attractive and articulate than our own Sharron Angle.
It is ever so frustrating to see these fringe extremists taking over the modern GOP. These irrational ideologues are incapable of reasonable dialogue or of coming up with balanced practical solutions to our problems.
I don’t care if you are a Christian. Don’t think this has anything to do with that. I know plenty of Christians who don’t believe God tells them what color underwear to put on in the morning, or that blood transfusions are evil…know what I mean? If they did feel that God inspired them to run for office, they’d probably hold that special sacred faith inside themselves, and wouldn’t absolve themselves of responsibility for their own decisions.
One thing’s for sure: The Bible is not an authority on pubic policy, something Michele Bachmann would wholeheartedly disagree with. Scary…very scary.
