Michele Bachmann - incompetent, or dishonest?
http://gawker.com/5862082/did-bachmann-leak-classified-intel-during-the-debate

"Did you hear Michele Bachmann at Tuesday's Republican debate saying that terrorists have made six different attempts on Pakistan's 15 nuclear sites? That's not information that's ever been made public! Which raises the question: did Bachmann just leak classified information to a national audience?"

"Except that the other thing about Michele Bachmann is that she's crazy, and wrong about almost everything, including her own life story. So it's also possibleequally possible?that she just wholesale invented the line about "six terrorist attempts," much in the same way that she invented the line about "59,000 illegal immigrant terrorists" that she was peddling a few weeks ago"

:crazy:

Good ol' Gawker :D

4. She is incompetent and way way over her head.
This country is in a ditch because of people who are not qualified to lead. What's to be done??

18. Do not underestimate this horror.
She has won several well financed and contentious races. Worse yet, she's a true believer.

5. Bachmann is more than incompetent, she's more like a sabotuer.

She's not just bungling, she's actively working to fuck shit up.

6. What makes you think it can
only be one or the other?

I think that basically this woman has only a passing acquaintance at best with fact-based reality. She's perhaps the kind of person who (a lot like a very young child) thinks that if she says something, then it's true.

12. She's a Dominionist
She is not stupid, but not intelligent enough for the tasks she has set for herself. She is firmly entrenched in the idea that she is working for her "God" Jesus Christ and anything she says or does to win a position of influence where she can "bring more sheep into the fold" has no consequence to her. She will lie, steal, distort.... you name it all while being convinced she is in the right because the end will justify the means and, after all, she is answering to a higher power.

This is her craziness, and the powers that be are exploiting it, and her, to keep the masses embroiled and too busy fighting over the deck chairs to notice that the ship's treasure is being plundered while it's slowly sinking into the abyss.

Scary shit.

26. Lying for the Lord, it's called.
And it's a term that originated with the LDS church. Which is why Romney can't be trusted, either.

16. The two are not mutually exclusive.
Add batshit crazy, and you have Bachmann. She has been making up crazy shit out of whole cloth for years, as those of us in Minnesota well know. She belongs in a mental institution.

17. May have some basis in truth
She does sit on the House Intel committee, so no doubt she's exposed to a variety of sobering facts.

Although she's also quite capable of misinterpreting what she may have heard. She is an idiot, after all.

22. You can be sure intellegence is not all that well defined.
Hate to think what kind of scuttlebut is being discussed at the House Intel committee. After all the committee mewmbers are cut out of the same cloth as Bachmann. We are inundated with ignoramuses in leadership roles.

23. The "I" word/s are good to describe her
Multiple choices and are gender neutral and are applicable to all the rest of the Republican field.
