[You have to be a little bit crazy to want to run for president in this country. And Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Republican and Tea Party-er from Minnesota,may just be crazy enough. The congresswoman announced her candidacy for president on Monday with a statement in Waterloo, Iowa, the town where Bachmann grew up before moving to Minnesota.
From the Huffington Post:
An Associated Press-GfKpollreleased last week found Bachmann riding a wave of momentum following her performance in New Hampshire’s firstpresidential debateof the election season. At the Granite State forum, which was held two weeks ago, the GOP hopefulsignaledher intention to formally launch a presidential campaign
It’s not only Bachmann who’s drunk and crazy…it appears a good number of Americans are also psychotic enough to support this woman for president. Well, good for her. Bachmann is feeling that momentous wave, and she’s riding it out. She said on Sunday that she would oust Obama in 2012, but claimed it wasn’t “anything personal.” The president is “just wrong” and “his policy prescriptions have been wrong.”
That means Bachmann thinks she is “just right” and “her policy prescriptions have been correct.” As soon as we can get Bachmann elected president, the sooner we can get those dangerous government hands out of our Medicare and Medicaid!]
Maybe it’s because most of the major GOP contenders seem constipated and in need of a strong black market laxative, but Michele Bachmann seems drunk up there on the New Hampshire stage. Her voice is shrill because her tongue has been loosened by sauce. I’d heard fanciful rumors about her drinking problem, but I never thought there was any merit to them.
But Bachmann is juiced, and New Hampshire must be wondering who let the circus come to town. Bachmann’s like an unhinged Sarah Palin (and I thought Palin was unhinged). Oh no, I was wrong. Bachmann’s juiced and she doesn’t care. She thinks she’s got this debate in the bag.

Bachmann offers different “skill sets” than Palin does, or so Michele says, but when we’re working with skill sets that can be categorized under Crazy American Ideas, then those Palin / Bachmann “skill sets” do seem awfully similar. Frighteningly similar.
Bachmann announced she has filed her paperwork to make her presidential run official.
Bachmann wants to kill the EPA. I would love to make the air more polluted, the streams even more disgusting, and cut down more trees. That would be wonderful. Let the corporations run wild! Let them dump their waste. Let them destroy our world! Let’s get a smoggy Los Angeles back again.
Bachmann is an enemy of the American people.
