Michele Bachmann feels nukes are the best response to cyber attacks
Edited on Sat Apr-10-10 06:39 AM by NJmaverick
"If in fact there is a nation who is compliant with all of the rules ahead of time and they've complied with the United Nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the United States a biological weapon, a chemical weapon or maybe a cyber attack, well then we aren't going to be firing back with nuclear weapons," Bachmann said. "Doesn't that make us all feel safe?"

"No!" shouted the crowd of thousands in Minneapolis.

3. Bachmann blasts more hot air out of her mouth than a nuke does.
Maybe if she was forced to look at the results of death and destruction up close, she'd learn something.

6. I'm thinking the author of the "bright light" comment
had his/her tongue so firmly in their cheek they bit it off.

If not: :nuke:

17. That's the one that caught my eye
FWIW, Sara Palin is the brightest knife in the drawer. Not very sharp, but attractive.

7. Well that ain't nothin'. I favor a nuke strike whenever I get a pop-up ad.

Bachmann is widely derided on this site as a raving lunatic.

That assessment is far too charitable, IMO.

12. She's probably thinking of the EMP but she forgot
Electromagnetic Pulse Shockwaves As A result of Nuclear Pulse Propulsion will wipe out all electricity, not just the Internet.


She watches too much T.V..... or she doesn't watch enough? :shrug:

13. This shows that our booth outside the rally offering psychiatric help for five cents was needed
It is a shame that we only made thirty-five cents because all those people shouting "No!" clearly need help.

19. She hasn't read the operations plan for cyber attacks
"If any nation should launch a cyber attack against the United States, the United States will retaliiate by airdropping Michele Bachmann. And they'll keep her."

Unfortunately this only works once.
