This funny sketch by Funny or Die shows Michele Bachmann, the racist and homophobic female politician who wants to be President, and how she makes it through her a speech while suffering from incapacitating headaches. Her secret? Help from her flaming, yet somehow anti-gay, husband, Marcus Bachmann.. and a lot of drugs. Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi do great impersonations of the controversial & hypocritical political couple.
The American Dream Film is an eye-opening documentary that delivers a dark [even scary] message through a witty and fun cartoon medium. Although this video was made before the Occupy Wall Street protests, and never uses these terms, it still helps define who the “1%” and the “99%” are. Everyone should take 30 minutes to watch this educational film. Did you know that The Federal Reserve is a privately-owned bank that prints and controls all of the money in the US? That a handful of individuals behind the Fed have a firm grasp over our government, our banks, and our entire economy? It’s time for America to wake up.
“The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you’ve been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.” -From their YouTube description
Michele Bachmann has once again stuck her big nose into a situation where she really needs to keep her opinion to herself. Earlier this month, during CNN’s State of the Union, Michele Bachmann suggested that occupying Wall Street is less likely to gain any more traction than the Tea Party she loves so much has. This is despite the fact that polls show more Americans in favor of the OWS movement than the Tea Party. Someone needs to buy this woman some bleach and turn her into a blonde. She is so good at missing the point of something and spinning it into something else. She should at least look the part. Giving brunettes a bad name Michele, tsk tsk. (Another example is her stating she would like for Judges to no longer tell people the laws of the US. Um, let me get this right, you don’t want judges to do their jobs now? What’s next? A lawyer being a medical doctor?)
Bachmann has also said that: “If you go to the essence of what Occupy Wall Street stands for, it’s having other people pay for their stuff.” Wrong again. The OWS movement is about holding the 1% accountable for the state of our economic crisis and doing more for the interests of the public than the private. Bachmann wouldn’t understand this though. After all, she’s the one sticking her grubby palm out for some extra play dough. Would you like an example? Here’s a random fact, taken from the Washington Post: $417,000 loan was taken out from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for a luxury home for Bachmann. All while she was busy fighting the big bad mortgage man. I smell a hypocrite hiding behind that horrible hair and clown makeup. So now she is not only a Republican, but a Socialist. How can you talk about having moral values and a family life when you won’t even help the families that are the 99%? Shame on you again, Bachmann! You should go dust off your own charcoal remnants before you go showering it on others.
Wake up, America – this is exactly the type of people running our country. The only bad thing about this one in particular is she wants to be President. Michele Bachmann needs to just fade back into the state she came from, you know, the one full of pots and kettles.
Awesome television ad featuring retired San Jose Police Chief Joseph McNamara. It feels reassuring to see a previous (and intellectual!) member of law enforcement urging Californians to vote YES on Prop 19 this November. Learn more about the propostion at yeson19.com. My fingers are crossed!
“Let’s be honest: The war against marijuana has failed. I know from 35 years in law enforcement. Today, it’s easier for a teenager to buy pot than beer. Proposition 19 will tax and control marijuana just like alcohol. It will generate billions of dollars for local communities, allow police to focus on violent crimes, and put drug cartels out of business. Join me and many others in law enforcement. Vote YES on Proposition 19!”
What is on Sarah Palin’s agenda with all this reality show BS? Who the hell knows.. but it’s confirmed- she’s crazy.
As you probably know- Sarah Palin has a new 8 episode series on the TLC channel called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” The show is supposed to be about family life, family values, and the great outdoors. (And killing a lot of animals for fun)
So WTF is this really about? If you’ve seen the show, it’s clear she loves shooting guns and pretending to love her ##&!ed-up family. (Daughter Bristol- unmarried and pregnant at 18. Willow- openly homophobic, gay-basher on Facebook) Every time Sarah talks- it’s some sort of fabricated crap. She narrates everything, trying to make herself look legit but ultimately sounding like an idiot. (Ex: Continuously trying to downplay the moronic statement she made a couple of years ago that she could see Russia from her house. The joke’s over, and it’s too late to recover from it now.)
KATE GOSSELIN and her 8 kids are on the next episode (Sunday, Dec 12th 2010) ..WTF? This makes absolutely no sense. They aren’t friends and Kate hates camping.. so obviously this is some type of cheap publicity stunt for both of them. But wait- I thought the show is about family values and the great outdoors? Well Kate’s a divorced A-hole.. so let’s pick her to be on the show.
The funny thing is- they apparently had a terrible time together. Gosselin + Palin = horrible mix. I guess they are too alike to be friends. Two fake & annoying bioch’s.
If the purpose of this show is to promote Palin running for President in the 2012 election- the world is really going to end.
..she just hasn’t been outed.. yet. But my theory is that one day [and hopefully soon] this homo-hating, far-right wingnut will be caught red-handed with a barely 18, female slut-puppy. My reasoning? Bachmann is just like George Rekers, David Dreier, Troy King, etc [the list of anti-gay politicians that turned out to be gay goes on and on and on]. Bachmann is probably just another self-hating, God-fearing homo who puts themselves in a position of power to “redeem” themselves by remaining closeted and oppressing other gays.
So when the inevitable scandal begins and the naughty pics of Michele start to leak, I’m guessing they’re going to look something like this:
I also have the same theory about Michele’s husband, Marcus Bachmann, who calls homosexuals “barbaric” and attempts to cure them at his Christian counseling center. The poor guy prances around like a fairy and is more feminine than Michael Jackson was.. it’s only a matter of time before he’s caught with a rent-boy.
But back to Michele. In all seriousness, whether she’s a closet lez or not, how can we as Americans even consider the idea of allowing someone with such a warped, delusional, and closed mind become our President? This would be a huge step-back not only for the equal rights movement, but for intelligent progress in general. Besides her anti-gay agenda, Bachmann is also completely ignorant of the Constitution and constantly makes Palin-like errors in her nonsensical speeches. Plus, anyone who stills believes homosexuality is a choice, identity disorder, or sexual dysfunction needs to attend more school and less church.
Let me re-word one of your own quotes, Michele. And please, take it to heart:
“If you believe in ultra-conservative, religious ideologies, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.”
Sarah Palin was asked by an interviewer what she reads to stay current. She responded tweaking like a meth addict and completely dodging the question. She answers some random bull##&! including what politicians think about Alaska.
There’s been a lot of controversy over a recent cover of Newsweek which featured a very unflattering picture of Michele Bachmann looking as crazy as ever with the caption: “The Queen of Rage.” After the publication came under fire by conservatives for the picture choice, Newsweek editor Tina Brown defended the photo by saying that “Bachmann’s intensity is galvanizing voters in Iowa right now and Newsweek’s cover captures that.” Personally, I love it. If you’re going to act insane, you should at least be portrayed that way.
Political impersonators Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi from Funny or Die are back with another video making fun of Michele and Marcus through a behind-the-scenes look at the Newsweek photo shoot.
