Bachmann-Perry overdive: it was just a harmless joke

Via Politico (With my apologies), crazy-eyed Michelle Bachmann has clarified her comments that God was sending disasters because he wanted less government spending on the middle-class and poor:

Of course I was being humorous when I said that. It would be absurd to think it was anything else,” Bachmann said on Monday on a campaign stop in Miami. “I am a person who loves humor, I have a great sense of humor,” she said.

So there you have it, Bachmman just has delightful sense of humor which happens to include speaking for the sacred deity known as Republican-Jesus whom she openly adores and defends.

This incessant yammering from the Rick Perry’s and Bachman’s about what God[s] wants is so blatantly transparent, so clearly and intensely political in nature, and so very misleading. It’s particularly annoying to hear Christians, who ostensibly believe in a divine being which commands generosity, help for the poor and sick, being led into serfdom by the town criers of today’s greed-crazed neo-medieval lords. And yet it’s been a staple of politics since the Hittites went mano-a-mano with Rameses the Second. You’d think people would see through it by now. But no, there always seem to be enough insecure, gullible peasant class foot soldiers to keep it going.

You know what would make it even more insufferable? If Bachmann scored a wingnut-welfare high-dollar book deal making her a premium Fox News grifter. Do’h!

    Sure, how could we all miss it; there is nothing funnier than jokes about people suffering.

    Imagine if Obama did something like that? It would be a wingnut hatefest, there would be House hearings and calls for impeachment.
