The Mad Hatter of Minnesota, Representative Michele Bachmann (aka Krazy) has decided it’s time for some “crazy” to be thrown into the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) race for the White House.
Krazy, who not surprisingly has very close ties to the tea party, announced today during the so-called CNN GOTP Presidential Debate that she is running for president.
“Our country needs a leader who understands the hardships that people across America have been facing over the past few years, and who will do what it takes to renew the American dream. We must become a strong and proud America again, and I see clearly a better path to a brighter future,” Bachmann said in a statement issued through her new campaign.
Well, actually Krazy what America needs is leaders who actually know the country’s history; for example where Lexington and Concord are.
During a recent visit to New Hampshire, clutching a tea bag in her hand, Krazy told a group of students and conservative activists in Manchester, New Hampshire: “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord.”
And of course, who can forget when Krazy announced –during a press conference at a Freedom Watch symposium titled “National security, freedom, and Iran – is it time for U.S. and Western intervention?” – her support for The People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI, also known as the MEK), saying that it should be removed from the U.S. State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
Funny how Krazy claims to love America, but she supports the removal of a terrorist group from the list which protects us from terrorist groups; the U.S. State Department has said the PMOI assassinated at least six U.S. citizens as part of the struggle to overthrow the Shah, backed the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran and opposed freeing U.S. hostages. The U.S. government designated the PMOI a “terrorist” organization in 1997.
Yeah, she’s just the lunatic we need running the country.
