Bachmann Praises Obama's Win... Now....

It's so depressing that someone as stupid as Michele Bachmann could possibly be re-elected but it's nice to know that she appears to no longer regard Barack Obama as anti-American, indeed she now thinks his election is a thing of almost wonderment. The woman who believes that "all cultures are not equal" gives us her astute political take on what this event means.

Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told Politico Thursday that she was "extremely grateful that we have an African-American who has won this year." She called his victory "a tremendous signal we sent."

"I have not seen the United States as a racist nation," said Bachmann, who represents Minnesota's 6th Congressional District, in the east-central part of the state. "In my district, I don't sense racism, and that's why I'm thankful that hopefully this will send a national signal across our country that America is not a nation made up of racists. ... On the same hand, I hope that the national media will not confuse disagreement with Obama's policy positions with being consumed [by] racism."
This has occurred a lot this year where, now that the election is over, the Republicans seem to want to let us know that they didn't really mean it when they said Obama was a socialist, unfit to lead the nation.

McCain made a very gracious concession speech welcoming the election of the man he told us was a socialist intent on "spreading the wealth". Joe Lieberman now says that he "completely agrees" with Obama and that bygones should now be bygones and that he now supports "our new president", a man who he previously claimed did not put country first.

And now Bachmann thinks "a tremendous signal" is being sent as the man she suspected might be anti-American takes charge of the White House.

I just wonder why anyone should ever listen to any of them ever again.

While Bachmann was telling Politico how wonderful the election of our first black president is, she was comparing Obama and his new chief of staff to The Sopranos on right-wing hate radio:

Dunno why anyone would listen to them in the first place.
