More Bachmann Follies

I have long held the belief that the current republican party is flat out insane. One of the best and most telling examples is Michelle Bachmann!

 While she has been crazy, hateful and divisive, that is what the republican party is looking for these days. They have rewarded her hatred by making her THE fundraising leader in the national republican party(tripling what paul ryan has raised). 

Michelle Bachmann is at it again!   She visited a Synagogue in Chicago and cleared the place!The outspoken lover of all things Israel, turns out that all things Israel are not in love with Bachmann.  

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) swung by a Chicago-area synagogue for a worship service on the eve of Yom Kippur last week, upsetting congregants and provoking one man to mount a campaign for her Democratic challenger before the end of the night.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Rabbi Michael Siegel of Anshe Emet Synagogue observed protocol by offering a customary greeting to Bachmann during the services. While elected officials are traditionally acknowledged during such events at the temple, the presence of the conservative Minnesota firebrand prompted particular displeasure.

Some reportedly walked out of the ceremony, while Gary Sircus, a 25-year member of Anshe Emet Synagogue, voiced more active opposition to Bachmann's attendance.

"The holiness of the room and the holiness of the evening was greatly diminished for me, if not completely destroyed," said Sircus, according to the Tribune. "Our congregation values and embodies tolerance, compassion, respect for individual rights, intelligence, science -- all of the things that I think Michele Bachmann stands against."

Bachmann has been an outspoken supporter of Israel and an unabashed opponent of gay rights, an awkward policy duo on that particular night; Siegel told the Tribune that the night's service had included a piece honoring Israel for its openness to the LGBT community.

Hours after storming out of the service, Sircus donated to Jim Graves, Bachmann's Democratic opponent in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District, and included a note.

"I felt that the best way to 'honor' Ms. Bachmann's visit was to make a contribution to your campaign," he wrote to Graves. "Even though I do not vote in Minnesota, please do everything in your power to take away this evil woman's soapbox."

We have a real chance this election, to end the reign of some of the most extreme players in Congress, which will go a long way to fixing our national problems.  

Michelle Bachmann would be a good start and her opponent, Jim Graves, is now within the margin of error. 

Allen West is losing to Patrick Murphy.

Pat Kreitlow is running neck and neck with reality tv cartoon character Sean Duffy

American Hero, Tammy Duckworth leads tea party hero and deadbeat dad Joe Walsh. 

Finally, Small businessman Rob Zerban is running even with Wall St's golden boy and Ayn rand disciple Paul Ryan( who is so scared of losing his congressional seat he is pumping millions into ads).  

Culling these five extremists from our Government alone, will make the US a better place on November 7th!

  1. The Associated Press recently said that during the Republican debates Bachmann made some many factual errors that they couldn't correct them all, because if they had, the news stories would have been almost entirely about her.

    That's one thing I've noticed about the Baggers, they seem to have a tactic of inserting so many lies into one drawn out sentence that a few of the whoppers will invevitably slip through unchallenged. Talk fast and lie, lie, lie.

    Ryan is pretty good at this. It works very well on ignorant, semi-literate people, in other words, the core Bagger demographic.
