In Rep. Michele Bachmann’s farewell speech today, she gave kudos to “prayer warriors” and of course, Moses.  She was thankful for her staff, her donors and the guy who literally drives the trains in the basement of the Capitol, according to the Star Tribune.

[su_center_ad]”It’s an honor and it’s the ride of a lifetime,” Bachmann said. “I’m so filled with joy and so much happiness and understanding that the privilege that I have is one of being really a link on a chain. It’s gone on for hundreds of years and I stand right here on the soil in the square feet that are the freest square feet in the world.”

The Star Tribune reports:

She said the reason why there is government is to secure for everyone “the rights God gave us.” She talked about Moses, who the Bible says decreed the Ten Commandments.

“It’s an honor. Where else could we find this level of freedom anywhere in the world?” she said, standing alone on the House floor. “This is the room where the laws of our nation’s laws are formulated.”

Bachmann thanked her donors. She thanked her “prayer warriors” — people who prayed for her through her political ups and downs — and she thanked her staff and some Capitol employees, including James, who drives the train between House Office Buildings and the Capitol. She thanked the constituents in Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District. And she thanked veterans.

“It is our job not to think only of ourselves but to think of the generations that are yet to come,” the climate change denier said. “My favorite Americans are people who didn’t know they were Americans. They were the Pilgrims,” said the woman who is opposed to immigration reform.


Of course, we now have Joni Ernst, so bloggers won’t miss Bachmann too much.[su_csky_ad]

    Freedoms like the ability to spout complete bullshit, and get paid $174,000 a year for it. And by the way, Michelle, good riddance.

      I’d love a jerb like that. Her accomplishments = 0

      • Larry Schmitt December 10th, 2014 at 1:33 pm

        Not quite zero. She made up half of a memorable duo, the Dopesy Twins, along with Sarah Palin. For that they will both be fondly remembered.

      In 2018 she will receive a pension over $40,000/year.

      Not many working Americans will have this kind of pension, if any when the repubs get done.

      She will be another pig at the trough for the rest of her life.

  2. rational_thinking_one December 10th, 2014 at 1:21 pm

    Hopefully she makes a run for the White House in 2016. I can’t wait for the “I’m crazier than him/her” Republican primaries.

  3. Larry Schmitt December 10th, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Oh, and the pilgrims weren’t Americans, because there wasn’t an America yet. That would be like calling cave men Europeans.

  4. Denise December 10th, 2014 at 1:31 pm

    she is getting ready for the big house.

  5. shocktreatment December 10th, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    How can anyone watch that vid and not conclude that beyond her intellectual deficits, Shelly suffers from serious mental health issues?

    Really, she is demented–

    “…I stand right here on the soil in the square feet that are the freest square feet in the world.” WTF! Suddenly the bumbum revirgined queen is looking like a Nobel candidate!

    Oh happy days, good bye you evil slit, may you hear the screams of every one of your victims, every night as your gay husband refuses to touch you

  8. Bunya December 10th, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    And I’d like to thank all the sane people among us who voted her out of office.
    Yes Michele, my favorite Americans also were the Pilgrims. They were the first immigrants, you know.

    • edmeyer_able December 10th, 2014 at 2:22 pm

      I was under the impression her “retirement ” was part of a plea deal due to campaign finance irregularities.

    • Scopedog December 10th, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      Unfortunately, even though she’s out, there are even more crazies coming in….

  9. rg9rts December 10th, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    Good riddance

  10. edmeyer_able December 10th, 2014 at 2:30 pm

    So the next question is will she team up w/the other grifter sara palin or strike out on her own?

    • rg9rts December 10th, 2014 at 2:31 pm

      Their own POTUS ticket!

    • Pilotshark December 10th, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      think she still needs to survive the FBI and FEC investigations from her last try.

    • Scopedog December 10th, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      Probably. There’s always an open position at Fox News….

    Michele Bachmann was a person who understood equality is not a right. It’s a privilege. She firmly believed privileges should only be available to those who can afford them and are willing to pay for it without being gay.

    Michele Bachmann fought for a world where everyone can be as different as the bible allows them to.

    I hope Michele Bachmann may find peace in heaven, a place where ‘gay’ still means ‘happy’ and where her closest ally is Fred Phelps.

    • Larry Schmitt December 10th, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      If that’s the case, she’ll be in a different heaven than her husband.

  12. searambler December 10th, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    “…the privilege that I have is one of being really a link on a chain.”

    Or in her case, a missing link…

    • Larry Schmitt December 10th, 2014 at 3:08 pm

      In her case, she’s on another branch altogether of the evolutionary tree.

    A good part of your job was to think. Period. Something you did precious little of.

  14. ChrisVosburg December 10th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    So long and thanks for all the square footage, crazy eyes.

  15. mmaynard119 December 10th, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    She may be gone, but she’ll show up on FAUX News regularly, like Klondike Barbie does. So we haven’t seen or heard the last of her and Marcus……….

  16. Suzanne McFly December 10th, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    She thanked Moses and her “prayer warriors” (oxymoron if there ever was one) but left out the Pope, what does this brainless twit have against our Pope? Doesn’t she understand he is God’s messenger? You would think with all here Biblical references she would at least give the Pope a shout out.

    Only comedians mourn the departure of Bachmann cheering for homicidal maniacs: “Well what I want them to know is just like John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too,” Bachmann told a Fox News reporter.
    One small detail: John Wayne Gacy, the infamous mass murderer is from Waterloo!

  18. Dwendt44 December 10th, 2014 at 11:52 pm

    Going out as crazy as she came in. True to form.

  19. AnnSanity December 11th, 2014 at 4:43 am

    I think someone should clue Ms. Bachmann and her friends in on the fact that according to her own religion, the ten commandments do not apply to her because she is under the New Covenant which did away with the Laws of Moses. Wasn’t that the entire point of her Savior dying on the cross? Well…when you are grasping, I guess any straw will do!

  20. alpacadaddy December 11th, 2014 at 10:40 am

    The fact that the Repugs & Tealinquents selected “Bat$hit-crazy Eyes” Bachmann for the House Intelligence Committee explains a lot. Her idiocy makes Louie Gohmert look sane by comparison, and is an insult to idiots everywhere! We’ll see her on Faux Noise I’m sure since just like Palin and STD’s she’s the gift that just keeps on giving!
