Why is this lunatic allowed on TV?

This is just from the last couple of days:

Bachmann: The ACLU Is Running The CIA Under Obama

And they're both stealing my thoughts and putting words in my brain!

"[Obama] is allowing the ACLU to run the CIA" Bachmann asserted. "We have decided we are going to lose the war on terror under Obama."

It's almost impressive, how she's able to come up with this stuff.

Then there's this little exchange from Meet the Press:

MR. GREGORY: No, no, let me just make the point. Your view that waterboarding should be reinstituted, you understand that puts you at odds with most of the generals, OK, the former Republican nominee of your party John McCain, General Colin Powell. You realize you're on the opposite end of what they believe? Do you not trust them and their views?

REP. BACHMANN: Well, but what, but I, but I'm on the same side as Vice President Cheney on this issue, and others as well. Because, I, again, what we're looking at is what will save American lives. And that's what the most important thing is. We've got, we've got to decide that we want to defeat the terrorists. 

Hey, I'm on the same side as a disgusting, evil bag of scum who knows nothing about the subject!

And the topper:

I believe that Iraq should pay us back for the money that we spent. And I believe that Iraq should pay the families that lost a loved one several million dollars per life...
MR. GREGORY: All right.
REP. BACHMANN: ...I think, at minimum. 

I must remember to send Fat Tony a check!

Aaaaand, she thinks we should be more like China. 
She has a point. Those are some snappy uniforms.

Bachmann added: "If you look at China, they don't have food stamps. If you look at China, they're in a very different situation. They save for their own retirement security... They don't have the modern welfare state and China's growing. And so what I would do is look at the programs that LBJ gave us with the Great Society and they'd be gone."

So on the one hand, we'd lose Medicare, Medicaid and the Consumer Protection Agency. On the other hand, we'd have, um. . . a great leap forward? 

By the way, how's that whole "saving for their own retirement" thing working out for ya, China?

Yeah, that looks way better than foodstamps!

Michele Bachmann is a national fucking disgrace.

Why do people keep giving her a platform?
