Michele Bachmann, As Painfully Moronic As Ever

Michele Bachmann on gay people getting married:

“[Gay people] can get married… But they abide by the same law as everyone else. They can marry a man if they’re a woman. Or they can marry a woman if they’re a man.”

Yes, you read that right. Gay marriage is totally allowed if it’s straight. Wrap your mind around that.

Gawker Explains The Absurd Awfulness Of The New York Times

Perfectly on point:

See, the secret of the Style section is that it’s intended for two audiences. The first audience is its “official,” explicit audience: people who see nothing problematic with being told by The New York Times what’s cool, and think of the Style section is a straight-ahead, unironic record of hip trends and cool people. This is the audience that most people imagine when they okay a Style section profile.

But then there is the second, “secret” audience: everyone else. This audience, of which you are a member, is both mesmerized and repelled by the Style section. Its reaction, week after week, is “what the fuck is wrong with rich people?” To the secret audience, the Style section is full of dispatches from a different universe; a universe where some of the most horrible and insufferable people on the planet are treated as visionaries and geniuses. A rich universe.

Michele Bachmann Says The CIA Is Run By The ACLU

Oh Michele, you are a fucking idiot:

The American Civil Liberties Union is running the Central Intelligence Agency, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told the CBS GOP primary debate audience Saturday night.

“[Obama] is allowing the ACLU to run the CIA” Bachmann asserted. “We have decided we are going to lose the war on terror under Obama.”

But wait, there’s more! She actually stuck to her guns about this theory after the fact:

We all know that that isn’t a long-term solution to this problem. We aren’t adding any new terrorists to Guantanamo Bay. We only have Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the admitted mastermind of 9/11, who is at Guantanamo Bay, and others as well. But we don’t have a place to put al-Qaeda when we pick them up. It’s either catch and release, which is a terrible idea, or we have to kill them. What we need to win this war on terror is interrogation. This is where my comment about the ACLU comes in because today the CIA is no longer able to go through the interrogation that yielded such profitable information that saved American lives. That’s what I’m interested in, David…The, the, the only thing that we have available to us today is the Army field manual. That’s online. So terrorists can go ahead and read ahead of time what will happen to them when we capture them, and it’s really, effectively, when we capture them today, it’s a slap on the wrist.
