Teh stoopid, it hurts:

On Mike Gallagher's radio program yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) offered a novel theory as to why Democrats want her out of office: They don't want her to become the first woman president.

BACHMANN: Also with women politicians, they want to make sure no women, no woman becomes president before a Democrat woman, and so they're doing everything they can to, I think, sabotage women like Sarah Palin, perhaps women like myself, or similarly situated women, to make sure that we don't have a prominent national voice. But the thing is, the people in our country, they don't care who the voice is, they just want someone, they want to know that someone is speaking out for them against what will certainly bring about the destruction of our great country if we continue to go down the Obama path.

I swear, you just can't write this level of stupid.

Hate to break it to you, Michelle, but Dems don't need to sabotage you when you do such a fine job of it on your own. Shall we take a little walk down Memory Lane?

Remember when you told Glenn Beck that the census was used to round up Japanese Americans during WWII?

or when you said that health care reform was undesirable because if everyone had access, lines at her doctors' office would be too long;

or when you claimed that "Flying Imams" attended a victory party for Keith Ellison

or when you complained about "re-education camps for young people"

or when you introduced a bill blocking the US from ever joining a global currency.

Media Matters has even more gloriousness of Bachmann.

As for running for president, all I can say is: Baby, bring. it. on.

Can you help us out?
