Bye Bye Bimbo! Liar to the last, good riddance to the terrible Minnesota Embarrassment

This woman has been a joke, a travesty, a terrible embarrassment, a disgrace. She said last time that she wouldn't run again for Congress; she didn't win based on support in Minnesota, but on some 80% + of outside money, and even then she only won by lying to get that money, and by spending more than 10 to 1 against Graves.

Polls show her losing, and despite what she says, with the MN GOP primarying her seat, she is cutting and running away. Her presidential campaign was a fiasco, and it is going to cause her continuing problems, because this woman is inept and corrupt.

She has done nothing of value in office, and quite a bit of harm. Shame on Michele Bachmann; good bye and good riddance. Don't wait for 2014. Get out now. We've had enough of your batshit crazy tea party battology (it doesn't mean what you might think it means).


  1. Hello Dog Gone,
    I cannot tell you what a pleasant surprise it was to wake up and hear the news that Bimbo Bitch Bachmann would be gone from the voting members of Congress.

    Of course it does not surprise me that her extremism has led to her ethics investigation. She lived by Barry Goldwater’s statement, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!”

    I would also warn to those whom tout the Tea Party / Ultra Extreme Reactionary Conservatism, “Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed.”


    1. Hi EoK,
      Here absences as a voting Member of Congress will have less of an impact as the Sixth District is so slanted toward Republican ( I believe that Romney won it by 15% ... and although Bachmann ran in the Sixth District, her home was in the Fourth).
      Most likely, her replacement will become a fall-in-line soldier as opposed to Bachmann and the TEA Party/Libertarian wing which forced Speaker Boehner to hold back votes. In the end, this will have no change in the Congressional votes ... much like if Collin Peterson (MN-07) decides not to run again -- Peterson is a Dem in a heavily Republican district, but votes with the Republicans on many issues like guns, abortion, fiscal issues.
      This will actually create a huge primary/caucus slot that most likely determine the winner as the announced Democrat, Jim Graves, will be bashed by Republicans and ignored by the media which loves a intra-party fight.
      Bachmann's biggest impact may be on fundraising ... and what she does with her campaign funds. She was a motivator for Dems and the GOP.


    2. Hi EoK,

      Actually, when it comes to Congressional votes, it probably will help Speaker Boehner. Bachmann as well as others in the TEA Party/Libertarian wing would force Boehner to hold back on votes ... and Bachmann was one that would dissent from the Party Managers. The district is heavily Republican ( I believe that Romney won it by 15% and Bachmann did not even live in the district as her home was in the MN-04).

      This will create a frenzy in the caucus (and maybe a primary) as the GOP has plenty of candidates willing to step in ... that will allow the media to focus on the intra-party squabble which will include plenty of bashing of the Dems ... leaving Jim Graves to be ignored.

      The most interesting question is what will happen with fundraising ... Bachmann was a cash cow ... an incentive for Dems as well as the GOP ... what will she do with her monies and influence --- that's the question.

  2. Said Bachmann: "The law limits anyone from serving as president of the United States for more than eight years. And in my opinion, well, eight years is also long enough for any individual to serve as a representative for a specific congressional district.

    Any reaction from the respective "senior" Representatives in the Minnesota delegation ... Collin Peterson (D) and John Kline (R) ?

  3. Hello Minnesota Central,
    I think you have a good point of this district will just elect another Right Wing Nut Job to replace Bachmann. More things change, the more they stay the same.

    As Dog Gone knows, I was a Regional Sales Manager with a company and Minnesota was one of my territories. I cannot put it into my mind how the citizens of Minnesota that I knew would even vote for her.....But I guess they did vote a Professional Wrestler for Governor...that did not play out well either.

    1. Hi EoK,

      Hey ... don't be bashing Governor Ventura ... he was no Bob Taft -- there was never any ethics complaints for him to address. IMO, Ohio's last good Governor was George Voinovich, whom I had the chance to vote for in his first elective office (he was County Auditor and I was clerking at a law firm, so I got to see him first hand.) I voted for Jack Gilligan for Governor ... and he was pretty good himself (so was his daughter Kathleen Sebelius ).

      Besides, I voted for Governor Ventura. Anyone who watched the debates, it was clear that Ventura was not a novelty. When Norm Coleman kept deferring to Jesse Ventura, it was the key ... and Coleman, who was a former Democrat Mayor of St. Paul and then Republican Mayor of St. Paul, lost Ramsey County which contains St. Paul to Ventura. Skip Humphrey, the Democrat, was not a factor. The world may have been "shocked" that Ventura won, but if you traveled the state before the election, it was apparent that he had caught on.

      Yeah, he was a Professional Wrestler, but he was also the Mayor of a Twin Cities suburb and had a radio program where he would bash government ... his views were known ... he pledged tax rebate of the state's projected budget surplus. Republicans won the State House while the Dems won the State Senate, so we had tri-party leadership ... and Ventura delivered on the rebates. He did some out-of-the-ordinary political things ... like going to Cuba to try to open MN ag products for exports which the Feds did not like ... he pushed for a unicameral legislature (which I got a Ventura stare when I asked why he failed getting that done) but all in all, he did a much better job than the next guy -- Tim Pawlenty.

      The only problem that I can think of with Jesse is his relatives by marriage ... DG knows all about Tony Cornish.
