Our favorite nutcase is at it again.  She is the Fountain of Foolishness, the Mt. Redoubt of Madness, the Sistine Chapel of Stupid.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...Michele Bachmann.

This time she waxes, well, INSANE on the subject of the so-called "Flying Imams".  You remember them don't you?  They're the victims of a "Real 'Murican Freakout" in Minneapolis back in '06, pulled off a plane for praying prior to boarding.

Well, Congress' answer to Penelope Pitstop has uncovered the real scoop behind their visit - they were there to party with Keith Ellison, who had won election to Congress a mere two weeks before!

Only one problem with - actually, there are SEVERAL problems with this:

  1.  They were actually in town for a religious conference.
  1.  Ellison's party was held the night of the election (November 7, 2006).  Which would have made the imams rather unfashionably late to the party.
  1.  Even if the dates were correct, and with all due respect (yeah, that's right, NONE), WTF DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE?  What happened to them was still unjustified, and this is nothing more than an attempt by Batty O'Bachmann to AGAIN throw bricks at Congressman Ellison, who has from all accounts served with much more honor and distinction than his unhinged counterpart.

She starts in on Ellison about halfway through this video, but it's worth the watching - she spreads the crazy all around on a host of issues.

This just bothered me because the initial incident was so unwarranted and embarrassing, you'd think anyone with any sense would have gladly left it alone.  Then again, I guess that's the point...

You've got to marvel at the absolute stupidity of this woman.  If breathing wasn't an involuntary function, one wonders if she could manage it.  Seriously, she has all the reasoning capacity of a cracked walnut.  As painful as it can be at times to listen to, let's just hope she keeps talking.  She's like a moronic version of the Incredible Hulk - the more she talks, the crazier she gets!  And I'm willing to bet she's not even close to tapping her reserve tank of stupid.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
