    The mother ship has called her home. If she’s convicted of campaign finance violations, can she still take her Congressional pension with her back to the planet Zartog…?

    Thank God she’s going – she must have re-read Matthew 24-26.

    As an atheist, I don’t care that much when people (even our public servants) use God to become a better person.

    It’s when God orders politicians to put restrictions on people’s lives, that we need to call “prove it” on.

    All members of our government must keep their religion out of our American government account no type of any religion is part of our government what so ever.

    Translation: Michele Backmann believes that she, and the Christian Right, embody the divine right of kings.

    So she thinks the voices in her head are real. I’m not surprised.

    God bless Michele.

  • SODDI

    Michele Bachmann – a perfect illustration of the American christian.

    LOL, I love that this ISN’T a compliment. Has NO ONE read their Moliere? She is a con artist, and simply by name checking God, she gets publicity on the Religion page as well as the front page.

    She has spent her time in congress maligning others and spinning lies.

She has been rather skillful at manipulation of a group of our fellow citizens who in their limited view are seduced by elements of faith she pronounces, leading to a backing which if they thought through some of the consequences of her statements, would lead to an understanding of how begets do their work.
