At a prayer rally at the capitol, Michele Bachmann delivered a breathtakingly idiotic diatribe about how important it was to “humble ourselves” before an “almighty God” — because 9/11 (and Benghazi) was God’s “judgment” on the country. This video makes my skin crawl:
First of all, the idea that this is humbling themselves is nonsense. They’re calling maximum attention to themselves with ostentatious displays of piety, something that Jesus explicitly condemns. And if Benghazi was God’s judgment, why is she trying so hard to blame it on Hillary Clinton? What did she want Hillary to do, thwart God’s judgment by preventing it?
