Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Crazytown) is often associated with the term, “Batshit Crazy.”
Rather than try to explain the craziness of Michele Bachmann, we thought it would be best to let you judge for yourselves by reading some of her actual quotes.
“Little children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and perhaps they should try it.”
Sen Michele Bachmann, Interview with Jan Markell, Olive Tree Ministries.
“Many teenagers that come in should be paying the employer because of broken dishes or whatever occurs during that period of time. But you know what? After six months, that teenager is going to be a fabulous employee and is going to go on a trajectory where he’s going to be making so much money, we’ll be borrowing money from him.” —Michele Bachmann, 1/26/05, explaining why teenagers should pay employers for the privilege of working instead of receiving minimum wage.
“Approximately 114 million Americans are expected to leave private health insurance. Why? Their employers will drop the insurance because the taxpayer-subsidized plan will be 30 to 40 percent cheaper.” —Michele Bachmann accidentally making the case for the public option
oh, and here is a fun one
“Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle – we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It’s anything but gay.” – Michele Bachmann, (R) Minnesota 6th District.
and our favorite
“Is there no longer freedom of speech in this chamber, Mr. President?….Mr. President…MR. PRESIDENT?….You can turn my microphone off now.” – Michele Bachmann, May 16, 2004, Last day of 2004 Session.

Michele Bachmann is also known for her outrageous lies. PolitiFact.com, the Pulitzer Prize winning fact checking website has posted a recent list of lies put forth by the fact-challenged representative. Each one of these statements by Bachmann has been judged by PolitiFact to be either “False” or “Pants on Fire”. Let’s take a look:
Small businesses that have “$250,000 in gross sales for the business. They’re the ones that are looking at massive tax increases.” – Pants on Fire
“The president of the United States will be taking a trip over to India that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day.” – False
“Speaker Pelosi … has been busy sticking the taxpayer with her $100,000 bar tab for alcohol on the military jets that she’s flying.” – Pants on Fire
“Social Security, like I told you, is out of money. This year it is borrowing from the general treasury.” – False
“The New England Journal of Medicine released a survey the week that President Obama signed Obamacare stating that over 30 percent of American physicians would leave the profession if the government took over health care.” – False
Let’s hope that someday the good people of Minnesota wake up from their slumber, realize that they are represented by a lying crackpot and vote her out of office.
Lynnrockets needs your help. Boston’s largest talk radio station (WRKO AM) has chosen Lynnrockets as a finalist in its “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Yours truly has been selected by the station’s staff (from over 200 entries) to be one of 10 finalists for a position with the station as a “liberal” blogger. There will be two winners (a “liberal” and a “conservative”) chosen by means of internet votes received. This is our chance to get even with the Palinbots for what they did for Bristol Palin on “Dancing With The Stars”. Like Bristol, I lack talent but with all of you voting for me, I may be able to pull-off an upset win. I offer my eternal gratitude if you loyal Rocketeers will visit the WRKO website (Here) and vote for wait…wait…here comes the spoiler…”Kevin McCarthy”. Looks like I’ve now been officially outed. Please vote early and often as the contest ends on Saturday, December 11th at 11:59pm EST. I would truly appreciate your help and if you really want to be of assistance, please encourage your family and friends to vote also, too!

(Sung to the Beatles song “Michele”)
Michele, from Hell
These are words that go together well,
Michele, do tell,
Do you even possess one brain cell
One tiny cell?
Just shut up, just shut up, just shut up
You have nothing to say
Would you just go away
And crawl back under that rock from whence you
Michele, Oh well,
You’ve been put under a right-wing spell
A sure death knell
On Fox News, on Fox News, on Fox News
That’s where you’ll always be
With Hannity and O’Reilly
And Coulter, the queen
We mock you…
We want you, we want you, we want you,
To leave the air-waves now
And lose your job somehow
Until you do we’re telling you so
Take with you that foul sulfuric smell
We will say the only words we know that
You’ll understand, “Go to Hell.”
