I have so much to do today and I'm just sitting here reading blogs and drinking coffee (but to be fair, that was on my list.) The kids and I are going to Iowa to visit rels and go to the state fair next week.  I wonder if we will see the republican candidates for president?  I'd love to get my picture taken with Michele Bachmann.  We could both make this face:

You know, people (my dad) says that this was a cheap shot on the part of Newsweek because everyone takes a bad picture now and then.

But I don't think that it was a cheap shot on the part of Newsweek.  If you're going to be a crazy person, it is not unfair to show a picture where you look like a crazy person.  If Michele Bachmann looked like Janet Reno everyone would be saying openly what a psycho she is, but no, she is very attractive so hey, maybe she's got something important to say!  Like this (thanks Buzzfeed):

"Not all cultures are equal."

"There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes who believe in intelligent design."

"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 that you should try it."

"Gay marriage is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and nation in the last, at least, thirty years.  I'm not understating that."

Okay, Crazy.  Whatever you say!  At least you look pretty!


  1. "Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President." Another fantastic Bachman interpretation of reality.

    Sorry but that picture looks like she's spots a lynching in the background and is mesmerized and a little excited. Okay a lot excited.

  2. She was on Good Morning America the other day and annoyed the crap out of me! She never answered a single question George asked her. It was almost comical!!

    That is still my all time favorite picture of you!

  3. OMG - I can't stand Michelle Bachman. That cover is total awesomeness.


I would love your comments.
