Michele Bachmann is anathema to 'intelligence'. She is a poster child for the necessity of padded cells. To have this person as a member of the House Intelligence Committee is downright irresponsible.

From an e-mail I received from People for the American Way:
"This is getting ridiculous. As if the spectacles of the government shutdown and possible debt default weren’t enough to make Tea Party Republicans look like absolute lunatics to the whole country and, indeed, the entire world… Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in an interview this past weekend accused President Obama of giving aid to Al Qaeda, which she said is proof that we are living in the “End Times.”

Congressional Republicans have no shortage of extreme, bigoted and paranoid members in their ranks, but Rep. Bachmann sits on the House Intelligence Committee.

Tell Speaker Boehner to remove Michele Bachmann from the Intel Committee now!

We’ve been pushing Speaker John Boehner to remove Bachmann from that committee for some time, for promoting conspiracy theories about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the U.S. government (specifically, in the form of former Sec. of State Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin).

With it so obvious now that Boehner’s having his strings pulled by the Koch Brothers, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and the rest of the Tea Party with the shutdown and default threats, the least he could do is show some basic common sense and pull Bachmann off of the incredibly important Intelligence Committee. Rep. Bachmann has shown time and time again that her lack of judgment and lack of attachment to the real world should preclude her from being in a position where she is responsible for keeping Americans safe from threats.

We have 15 whole months left until Rep. Bachmann steps down from her seat and the new Congress takes office. Will that be 15 more months of the dangerously delusional Michele Bachmann sitting on a committee where her radical view of the world can do Americans harm?

Tell Speaker Boehner to get Bachmann OFF the House Intelligence Committee."

Please sign with me. I have signed a number of these petitions, maybe this is the charm! She can still do a lot of damage before she retires in 2014.

Razzberry, as I understand things, these lunatics cannot be impeached or even recalled for that matter. They can only be thrown out of office during an election, or strongly urged to resign in the case of criminal activity.. Amazing isn't it . . . they can't be impeached but they can propose articles of impeachment and the Senate vote for the impeachment of the POTUS or a SCOTUS justice.

So agree Kit, Michele Bachmann and the word intelligence are an oxymoron.

Thanks everyone.

She embodies where the term "bat-shit-crazy" originated. I still cannot figure out why she continues to be voted into office. Is there something in the water? Of course, I signed the petition, thanks Lynn.

done---there really are some people who think that the USA will one day be taken over by the radical Muslims. It would be funny except that it is sad.

Ten days ago, the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives shut down the federal government.

Two days ago, a pollster identified things that now are more popular than Congress. Here are some of them: Dog poop. Zombies. Witches. Hemorrhoids.

Yesterday, another pollster measured the GOP approval rating. Answer: 28%. No major political party has ever seen an approval rating this low.

I received the same email as Lynn..l of course signed..like most of them, Bachman is a sociopath

Ive also read that islam will be more popular in the US in 20 years or so..who the hell knows...
signed!

@ Gina C --- "honestly, Ive heard things about Obama supporting Al Queda....with everything else hes done, who knows..hes not really working for us is he..
Ive also read that islam will be more popular in the US in 20 years or so..who the hell knows... "

Gina, Mr Obama does not support Al Qaeda in general terms but supports people. You hear more about Al Qaeda because there has been movement on activities in Syria where the US is providing some support to the rebels and Al Qaeda is also supporting the rebels.

"not working for us" --- I think if you looked at a list of his accomplishments, you'd see that he is. Kit B published a long list of Mr Obama's accomplishments just prior to the last election. It was impressive and if memory serves, was over 100 items. Healthcare reform was but one accomplishment. Check out Dandelion's post on BREAKING NEWS: GOPers Balk at Boehner Bill for a conversation she had with a pregnant woman in Florida, where if I remember, you also live.

"islam will be more popular in the US in 20 years or so..." --- For the most part, the Islam in the US is not the radical version. To say there are no radicals is ridiculous, but could they be any worse than the current crop of right wing extremist evangelical pseudo Christians that are currently infesting the US?

What the right wing extremist evangelical pseudo Christians are doing is whipping up fear. As Bertrand Russell said:
"Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

Thanks everybody.

Thanks Lynn! I will check out Dandelions story..
Like I said, I 'heard' this and that, doesnt mean I believe it and even if it was true, things change...my grandma used to say 'believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear' , and I take everything with a grain of salt anymore and since i dont know the full story on things, I cant say either way whats true or not. I will say that most everyone in office has an agenda and its usually self serving.
Obama certainly has done some great things and of course I dont agree with a few things but like I said before the last election, hes better than the competition.
