Don't worry, my lefty friends, neither Michele Bachmann nor her mentor/model, Sarah Palin, will ever be President of the US. And they know it. They don't care. They don't have to hold ANY elected offices to have long and financially rewarding lives as spokespeople for the bat-shit crazy.
In yesterday's post I explained that when Chick-fil-A's Dan Cathy made seemingly stupid remarks about gays he was crazy like a fox, brilliantly making the right enemies so he could sell more chicken to Republicans and Evangelicals.
Michele Bachmann is making enemies of The Republican Establishment so she can sell more bat-shit to the bat-shit crazy which is why she can't be "reigned in", why she won't recant or apologize and why being denounced by Establishment Republicans like John McCain and John Boehner will only make her post-Congress career as an issue advocate and leader of the bat-shit crazy even sweeter and more lucrative.
By the way, Michele Bachmann will be starting her new career soon - which , I'm sure, is OK with her. I don't get the idea that Michele Bachman and her mentor/model, Sarah Palin, really ever wanted real jobs anyway. And why would they? Why have a real job with real duties and real accountabilities when you can make a tour bus full of money for offering validation to people whose intelligence, education, religion and knowledge of civics offer them none?
When an Australian reader asked me how he could make a living being an atheist, I told him to attack Australia's largest and best-known Christian organizations until they start naming him in their fund-raising appeals then use those mentions to raise money from atheists. If he follows my advice he can quit his day job and have a lucrative career as a professional atheist.
For more on making more money by making the right enemies, see yesterday's post in my archives.
