Discarding the Soggy Teabag

From political ticker at CNN:

Michele Bachmann accused Rick Perry’s presidential campaign Friday of a “stealth” political attack – a charge the Texas governor’s campaign flat out denied. “If Gov. Perry has something to say to me, he can come out to the debates and say it,” Bachmann said in an interview with CNN. “But this is egg on the face unfortunately for the Perry campaign.”

At issue: tea party sponsor American Majority’s urging for Bachmann to drop out of the presidential race.

On Thursday, the group’s executive director Matt Robbins told CNN that Bachmann’s White House bid “is not a serious presidential campaign.” His comments coincided with a blog statement from American Majority president Ned Ryun, who outlined reasons why “it’s time for Michele Bachmann to go.”


In an interview with CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” Bachmann fired back, targeting the Texas governor.

“Well, of course, we found out that this is really a misstep on the part of the Perry campaign because these are Perry supporters that came out,” Bachmann told CNN. “This was a clumsy move.”

Bachmann continued: “This was meant to be a stealth move to make it look like this was tea party.”


When asked whether Bachmann had evidence that the Perry campaign was involved in American Majority’s statements, Bachmann replied, “No.”

“This is something that people have told us,” Bachmann said.

I wonder if one of them was the same person who told her that her daughter suffered from mental retardation after getting a Gardasil injection.

(Extra credit, kids, if you can identify the swooshes around the names at the top.)

    It must be frustrating for Jon Huntsman that he’s still polling behind these two self-destructing nuts…

    • huntsman sort of deserves it. yes, i’m still pissed off at him for using the term ‘democrat party,’ but that’s not why i think he deserves it. he should have finished his ambassadorship and run in 2016. it’s just bad form to quit and then diss your old boss. it’s just not classy.

  2. It is hard to decide who to root for when the fight is between Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry.

    Huntsman isn’t nearly as reasonable as he appears — he is incredibly conservative. It’s just when compared to the Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Santorum ninnies that he looks reasonable.

    • 😆 that is quite the dilemma, elyse. i think i’d root for botox batshit bachmann, only because she’s more entertaining that gov little ricky goodhair.

      good point about john jon huntsman. anyone would look reasonable and sane next to that bunch of asylum escapees.

  3. I think Perry took at least a half hit of ecstasy before his latest speech. Dude is loopy. 😆

  4. Both are such a waste od time and space, They are Mr. and Mrs. Toast. Now Herb Cain, that’s where the action is! Latest news says he offered a lady co-worker one of his 9 (“) plans. If he gets trendy, he might even try the Herbee 9999 moniker (keep your lawyer on speed dial)!

  5. Funny, you hear so much coverage of the Occupy Wall St. groups nationwide & even international groups & hardly anything about the the tea party anymore. They seem to have faded away when princess/quitter finally threw in the towel on deciding if she would run for pres or not.

    The tea party express is out of steam & all the GOP candidates are riding that train- going nowhere.

    • the tea party is nothing but a few fanatics who can’t seem to let go. they’re like the diehard fans of american idol contestants who have already lost and continue to screech that their favorite was robbed. the tea party was never a grassroots movement, so it was inevitable that it would dissipate. the only ones left are paid shills of the koch brothers and their interest groups.

  6. I have no idea about the swooshes, I’m afraid.

    “Battle of the half-wits” is right. The GOP primary this go-round would be improved if it were replaced with a reality show and the loons just had a series of contests.

    But, for the love of God, not a swimsuit competition!

    (No offense intended to the loons … I love those birds. And sorry for any traumatic visuals I inspired.)

    • i’ll post a link to answer the swoosh question at the bottom in case anyone wants to continue guessing.

      the debate have been like a reality show. that’s what’s really sad. while they’re entertaining for political junkies, they really should be. they should be serious and boring discussions about policy. instead, they’re a bunch of buffoons each trying to out-stupid the others. they lean more right with every debate and every question. it’s a wonder they don’t fall over.

  7. John Erickson

    Quite late, so just a quick “Howdy!” and the admission that I have no clue what the “swishes” are at the top – sorry!

  8. you say those two are half wits
    problem is put them together and you still arent even clsoe to a full wit

  9. LOL. I love the accusation without the sources. Be gone! Both of them!

    • i guess it would be okay with botox batshit bachmann if someone gets on the radio or tv and says that someone told them that bbb is the biggest slut on capitol hill, and not only is she polishing bronzo the clown’s knob every day, but she’s having a steamy affair with virginia so-not-a-foxx. after all, that person would be presenting the same level of proof that seems to be fine for bbb.
