I asked God, Michele, and he said “NOOOOOOOO!”

Please go away, Michele Bachmann. We don’t want you running for Franken’s senate seat.

At least she’s just chumming the waters outside the sewer pipe. It’s hard to get lower than Jim Bakker’s freaky “I’m selling big buckets of powdered eggs for Armageddon!” info-mercials.

    Wow, Jim Bakker makes Michele Bachman seem sane. This is the closest thing to a miracle I have ever seen.

    But it’s “Free Shipping,” PZ. And it’s a “donation” which means you can claim a tax deduction, I guess. How can you go wrong?

    But then…why do you need buckets of food if the end is nigh.

    The world has gotten too surreal.

    Remember when god told Pat Robertson to run? Sam Kinison did a pretty funny sketch about that “I guess god wanted you to look like a complete ass in the political arena, Pat!”

    Given god’s prediliction for trolling candidates, if god told me to run, I’d probably run really quietly and not tell anyone.

    Akira — Of course she could win. This is America where electing idiots to public office is the national pastime.

    Batshit Bachmann would win in maybe Mississippi or Arkansas or Idaho or any one of the other truly backward states but not Minnesota. ALLAH PLEASE NO!!

  6. archangelospumoni says

    Forgot to include: All I want from God (for now) is the winner of next year’s Kentucky Derby . . . and maybe the Breeders Cup races. Is that too much to add? If God wants Batshit Bachmann to be in the Senate–isn’t my own version of “prosperity Christianity” cheaper for me compared to a Senate seat?

    I promise to “invest” at least some of the winnings on worthy causes!
