Michelle Bachmann Is A Crazy, Ignorant Bigot

I don’t intend to get political in this forum often. Mainly because it can turn ugly very quick, and I’m not here to spread any hate toward anyone-with the exception of Michelle Bachmann. After she announced she would be running for President of the United States of America, Colin Meloy offered her the use of “Calamity Song” by his band The Decemberists, to use as her campaign song. That got me thinking ,what other good tracks should be blasting from her camper as she stumps across the country? Here is a list of 10 songs she could use, along with a quote from Bachmann that relates to the song I’ve chosen.

1. Scissor Sisters-“Take Your Mama

Bachmann quote: “And what a bizarre time we’re in, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.”

2. Thomas Dolby-“She Blinded Me With Science

Bachmann quote: “There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.”

3. Elton John-“This Song Has No Title

Bachmann quote: “Normalization [of gayness] through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders is take a picture of ‘The Lion King for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: ‘I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.'”

4. Traffic-“Dealer”

Bachmann quote: “It is a brand new, billion-dollar high speed train that is going to go from Disneyland up to Las Vegas…Harry Reid, the Senator from Nevada, was behind this measure, and it makes us wonder, is he more interested in making sure kids start gambling at younger ages?”

5. Barenaked Ladies-“If I Had A Million Dollars”

Bachmann quote: “I don’t know where they’re going to get all this money because we’re running out of rich people in this country.”

6. The Antlers-“Shiva

Bachmann quote: “A woman was healthy. There was brain damage, there was no question. But from a health point of view, she was not terminally ill.” (about Terri Schiavo)

7. Dire Straits-“Money For Nothin’

Bachmann quote: “If we took away minimum wage-if conceivably it was gone-we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”

8. Bright Eyes-“When The President Talks To God

Bachmann quote: “I just take the Bible for what it is, I guess, and recognize that I am not a scientist, not trained to be a scientist. I’m not a deep thinker on all of this. I wish I was. I wish I was more knowledgeable, but I am not a scientist.”

9. John Mellencamp-“Pink Houses

Bachmann quote: “I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or anti-America?”

10. Airborne Toxic Event-“The Kids Are Ready To Die

Bachmann quote: “Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.” 


If you can think of any others, please feel free to share them in the comments section. I could talk about or hear other people talk about how insane Michelle Bachmann is all day.
