I see from the pundits reports of the first Republican Presidential debate that the House member from Minnesota is considered one of the front runners in the coming election. It looks like she has stole Ms. Palin’s thunder. Maybe they will run together for the White House. Wouldn’t that be something to watch!
In a previous post I mentioned that the Republican Party is founded on four things: God, Guns, Guts, and Country. Here is a picture of Rep. Bachmann proudly combined all of those things. Her office door is plastered with a shooting rage target with many holes through the pictured torso. She holds an American flag containing a gun permit. And of course she is wearing a denim jacket to show the world that she is a “Sarah Palin” rouge. Some one on her staff probably spent weeks coming up with all the ideas for this picture.
The only thing missing from the picture is the God part. I heard the illustrious congresswoman is a graduate of Oral Roberts University so she’s got that one covered too. If any of you don’t know who Oral Roberts was here is my version of him. He was a popular tele-evangelist in his day. When his television empire was imploding, like they all seem to do, he was forced to sell quite a bit of his properties including his Beverly Hills estate and his Palm Spring home along with several of his Mercedes cars. The poor guy only ended up with six houses to live in. I don’t know how he managed. I’m getting off track here….
So it is clear that Michelle, if I can call her by her first name, is properly aligned with the Tea Party wing of her party. But what I don’t see about her is that she really cares much about us simple folks. If she ever hopes to get my vote she needs to let the caring side of her religious upbringing come through. At some point she will have to get away from all that complaining and actually do something. But that would be pretty unusual for any politician now days. When I look at this picture my hero a Will Rogers quotes comes to mind.
“Common sense is not an issue in politics, it’s an affliction”
It doesn’t look like the congresswoman has any afflictions in that area.
But what do I know….
