The Bachmann Effect

Today's denial of the ludicrious call for armed rebellion by spokescritters for Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Wingnut) highlights what TPM's Eric Klefeld calls "The Bachmann Effect":
I've now discovered at least three examples of a curious phenomenon: The Bachmann Effect. When Bachmann is out there talking about the issues in an adversarial setting, her opponents find themselves on a very unsure footing -- mainly because they're shocked and befuddled to hear what she's saying.
In short, the usual reaction to a Bachmann statement is "What the hell is she talking about?" I confess to having fallen victim to this nefarious and insane force of....UN-nature?--myself, yesterday. Thankfully, Klefeld also compiled a short video of the Bachmann Effect on other victims, below:

I'm glad to see that this crazy woman confuses others, as well! Look at the people she's addressing in video--every one of them dazed and confused by the sheer ignorance coming out of Bachmann's mouth. Proof positive that you need not be intelligent or well-schooled, knowledgeable about U.S. history, civics or the law of the land--you need not even need to be sane or able to breathe with your mouth closed!--in order to be a member of Congress.

And they call Al Franken "a comedian."

Will somebody please relieve Bachmann of her confusion and get her a copy of the Constitution, then stuff it in her mouth so we don't have to listen to her for another two years....and will the DFL please put up the candidate, time, and money necessary to defeat her in 2010?!

Nice post...if this woman really thinks she is speaking for other women she is even crazier than we think she is. There is not an ounce of sense in her. She is ignorant and stupid and apparently just likes to hear herself talk.
