|Michelle Bachmann never fails to disappoint|
with her craziness
We had the tragic and definitely unfunny incidents in which the woman in the car with the toddler thought she was being monitored, caused that chase and was shot to death by Capitol Police.
This was followed a couple days later by that guy who mysteriously burned himself to death on the Mall.
Then, this week, people are saying the most amazing things.
We have the ever reliable Michelle Bachmann, who added to her usual cannard about how Obama is funding terrorists
But she's changed her tune! She's no longer upset about that! Because it's a good sign.
It's a sign of the End Times! According to Right Wing Watch she said this:
"This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me. I'm a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the sign of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God's end times history.
I'd settle for the End Times to Bachmann's Reign Of Error in Washington, but you can't have everything.
Meanwhile, a group of truckers have come up with a remarkable plan for later this week. According to U.S. News and World Report, the truckers, to protest what they say is Washington trashing the Constitution, will slow traffic in DC, then put handcuffs on members of Congress and President Obama and make citizens arrests for treason, says Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for this whole plan.
|I'm almost disappointed a truckers group|
won't try to arrest Obama, Congress during
a planned protest this weekend.
What can possible go wrong with that plan?
Well, for one, not all of the group, Truckers Ride For the Constitution, are on board with this.
On the Truckers Ride for the Constitution Facebook page, it turns out that Conlon was not authorized to be spokesman.
Contrary to what Conlon might have said, the Truckers Ride for the Constitution people say now they will NOT try to arrest Obama or members of Congress.
In a way, I'm disappointed by this sudden little dose of sanity, because the drama would have been a nice diversion.
Love the logo for the group, by the way. A hot babe in a blue dress standing in front of a big, manly truck. Cool!
I'm all for the trucker protest, as long as they don't play that hideous trucker CB radio song from the 1970s "Convoy." Makes me throw up every time.
Judging from the Truckers' Facebook page, most people in their ranks are relieved. They want to make their voices heard, which is good, but they don't want to be regarded as kooks, which is also good.
However, there's a few in every crowd. commenters on the Facebook page want action and some arrests. Somebody named Cody Updegrave wrote of the arrest idea:
"Unlawful you say? How about the citizens who are being drug (sic) from their homes because the government want their land...or the countless Americans who have been stripped of their 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th amendment rights. FUCK THE LAW...it's time to take back our country."
Um, from who? The people you elected.
It must be something in the water.
