One of the most devoutly Dominionist (Fundamentalist Christian), and homophobic Teaparty Republicans is finally gracing Minnesotans with her departure. Michele Bachmann, one of the corrupt and notoriously cheap members of the House, gave her farewell speech yesterday. As one might expect from the delusional and intellectually deficient Congresswoman, her speech was filled with lies and statements that were laden with religious proclamations.
It's rather long, so I will give you a few examples of the gobbledygook from her barely coherent speech.
(Michelle Bachmann characterized herself as) "a homemaker at home,...I was essentially a nobody from nowhere...millions of dollars were spent to make sure I would not have the privilege of standing in the well of this house... I want to thank those who sacrificed so that I could be here...at one point mine was the most expensive race in the country...Millions and millions of dollars with an average donation of $41.00...Real people across the United States saw in me as an authentic credible voice who was here to speak for them... They knew that I wasn't here to speak for special interests, they knew that I wasn't bought and paid for , they knew that I was here for them...(Even after all the millions in donations she received) I am the same person today as I was when I came here eight years ago.
Really? She wasn't there for the special interests? I think fact checkers may disagree. Then she brought up the religious zealotry. Not surprisingly her ravings were laden with crazy.
I am so grateful to the holy god that created us, the creator god...Because you see, Mr. Speaker, Moses is given for the full honor of the greatest lawgiver in this chamber, because he was chosen by the God that we trust to be entrusted with the basis of all law. The ‘basis of all law’ as was written by Blackstone, the famous English jurist, was the Ten Commandments, that were given by none other than the God we trust on Mount Sinai...We know those laws, those laws are the fundamental laws of mankind, and here in the United States, the Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses is the very foundation of the law that has given happiness and the rise of the greatest prosperity that any nation has known before...Mr. Speaker, it could be no coincidence that this nation, knowing and enjoying the heights of such great happiness and such great prosperity, that it could be built upon that foundation of the Ten Commandments and of the law given by the God in whom we trust.
For such a humble, lover of humanity, Michele has not been kind to the poorest among us. She is the literal antithesis of Jesus' teachings. Michele was very busy, mercilessly cutting Veteran's benefits, cutting welfare for children (vetoing bills because they cut too little), cutting education funding and it goes on and on. Good riddance to this nightmare.
I'm sure Mia Love, the black Mormon from Utah will pick up right where she left off. Besides, I think Bachmann, like many of her fellow GOP-baggers, will be up to her earlobes in an ethics probe.
