How can we miss her when she won't go away? This Friday was Michele Bachmann's last day as a member of Congress, but something tells me we're not going to get rid of her polluting our airways with remarks like this one any time soon.

It seems the "good Christian" Bachmann was very upset with President Obama for not taking her seriously when she asked him to bomb Iran at the White House Christmas party.

From Fox's blog: Bachmann Asks Obama at WH Christmas Party to Bomb Iran:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was on “America’s Newsroom” today, where she discussed her Christmas party request to the president: bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Bachmann, whose last day in office is today, said the White House Christmas party was her last chance for a conversation with Barack Obama in such a capacity. That’s why Bachmann said she “decided to have a substantive conversation.”

“I asked the president to be very serious and to think about this because if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon on his watch, the course of history will change,” she said, describing Obama as “fairly condescending” in his response.

“He smiled and laughed and was fairly patronizing, and said, ‘Well, you know, it just isn’t that easy, Michele, but that’s OK,’ like I’m some little woman who doesn’t know what I’m talking about.”

Poor Michele. She's a victim, don't you know. And of course it has to be sexism and not the fact that she's bats**t crazy that President Obama was condescending to her.
