Progressives throughout the country should be rejoicing at the news that the crazy, fanatical Minnesota 6th District Congresswoman, MICHELE BACHMANN, will retire from the House of Representatives at the conclusion of her current term. Bachmann gave no concrete reason for this decision, but it is suspected by many that the new FBI probe regarding alleged improprieties oracticed by her campaign staff during her unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination last year may be playing a heavy hand.
This crazed, extremist woman has been the object of repeated, wholly justified criticism throughout her entire tenure at this blogsite and many others. From her fanatical embrace of the government-hating Tea Party, to her exhortation that angry taxpayers should descend upon the nation’s Capitol “armed and dangerous”, to her insensitive call for the abolishment of the minimum wage, to her claim that administration of the HPV vaccine could cause mental retardation, to her ridiculous assertion that homosexuals could “pray away the gay”, to her allegation on network TV that many members of Congress were engaged in “un-American” acyivities and should be investigated – one could always depend on this fool to make insane and untrue statements, and then claim she was misquoted afterward. Yet video tapes do not lie, and they revealed her to be an unthinking liar on many occasions! Truth and fact never mattered much to Bachmann – as long as a statement was outrageous, controversial, or attention-getting, that was good enough for her. It is criminal to think that taxpayers have wasted nearly a million dollars on her salary over the years. Clearly, it was a very bad investment!
Progressives should also be overjoyed to find that Senate Minority Leader MITCH McCONNELL is in deep political trouble with Kentucky voters and may well be defeated in his bid for reelection in 2014 by a Democrat. This massive liar looks, acts, and talks like a man who is severely constipated. He is hyper-political and has become the godfather of Republican obstructionism. He has proven time after time that the only word he really knows how to utter is a loud, defiant “NO!” Evidently Kebtucky voters are justifiably fed up with a man who once described his primary goal was to make Barack Obama a one-term President, rather than tending to the wants and very real needs of concerned Kentucky citizens. For a recent Public Policy Poll showed present Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes in a virtual dead heat with him. Ms. Grimes and her family have very longstanding ties and deep roots with the Kentucky Democratic Party and she is regarded as a very formidable challenger. Should she decide to run, she has an excellent opportunity to replace the stuffy McConnell, who has spent many, many years working on behalf of wealthy bankers and the Wall Street crowd, while neglecting the needs of the everyday Kentuckian and villifying all his perceived political opponents. Kentuckians, who have blown MILLIONS over the years on his congressional salary and have received very little for that expenditure, would do very well to replace him, even if Ms. Grimes turns out to be a blue dog Democrat.
So it now appears that, come January of 2015, our country will finally be rid of two of its biggest political oarasites and outright jerks in Michele Bachmann and Mitch McConnell. I can hardly wait! Now if we could only do the same with Paul Broun, Louie Gomert, Virginia Foxx, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and all the rest of these Tea Party-infested, reactionary Republicans who deliberately and defiantly stand in the way of true progress…
