Then she has a dream in which God tells her she is destined to become Pope Queen of America. Here, direct from her dream to our nightmare, is a sneak preview of what Michele will be wearing to her Inaugural Ball in January 2013:
|Warrior Queen of the New American Theocracy|
So while Barack Obama is casting himself as the second coming of Ronald Reagan and offering to sacrifice his very presidency in a heroic act of martyrdom for something not quite clear, Michele is offering us her own version of fantasy politics. If you're bored with the roguish antics of geeky Eric Cantor, the vapid smiling of Nancy Pelosi ("President Obama was so gra-a-a-a-cious"), the tortoise-like, face-saving blinking of Mitch McConnell of the KickCan faction of the GOP, here are a few of my favorite Bachmann pearls of wisdom to get you through these hazy crazy days of summer:
I think marriage is very important, it's the fundamental unit of our government.Notice that the first and last quotes seem to equate the words "marriage" and "family" as the fundamental government units in Michele's brain -- possibly displacing the executive and judicial branches. Of course, these words are thinly disguised code in the right wing dictionary of homophobonics. "Ex-gay" is another fun phrase. It makes about as much sense as unwed mother Bristol Palin's revirgination abstinence miracle. But as Michele readily admits, she is no deep thinker and no scientist, and therein lies her populist appeal. Freedom from thought is one of the hallmarks of fascism.
I'm not a deep thinker on all of this. I wish I was. I wish I was more knowledgeable, but I'm not a scientist.
But we also know that the very Founders that wrote these documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.
It would be fun to have someone in the WhiteHouse who has worked in the private sector... and someone who understands that wealth creation is a good thing and they want more of it. Wealth is good.
We're running out of rich people in this country.
It isn't that I was born thinking I had to be president. I'm getting a lot of encouragement to run from people across the country. I don't believe this is a rash decision.
I think you may see again a rise at the federal government level for a call for the federal constitutional amendment, because people want to make sure that this definition of marriage remains secure, because after all, the family is the fundamental unit of government.
