Stephen Colbert looks back on Michele Bachmann’s greatest hits (video)

Stephen Colbert pays homage to Michele Bachmann’s glorious years in the US House, in response to the news that she’s retiring from the US House at the end of this term.


It’s classic wonderful Colbert:

“Michele Bachmann announces her retirement in a web video recorded at the Sears portrait studio.”

He ends the homage with this screen shot:


It’s only 4 minutes, and worth the watch.

    No, they were all girls.

    Just sayin…

    I can’t decide which was my favorite Bachmann moment. I suppose one of the more memorable was after Dubya’s 2007 SOTU, when she literally would not stop touching him.

    And then there was the one where she was hiding in the bushes to spy on a marriage equality rally, and then denied she’d been cowering back there at all.

    But in the end, I have to go for the cheap and totally prurient two-fer. I just can’t resist.

    Eww. You should apologize for the image you just jammed into my brain. That’s some pure distilled nightmare fuel, honey.

    A tell all about daddy Marcus by one of the foster children?

  6. karmanot says:

    Lets hope!

    Two weeks before she announced her retirement, she was running campaign ads in MN as a candidate for a 5th term. She’s in deep dodo. Couldn’t happen to a finer republican nutjob.

    but, not compromising to him.

    According to David Shuster, the driving factor behind Bachmann’s resignation is that FBI investigation into her shenanigans during the early phases of the 2012 primaries.

    According to sources close to the criminal investigation of Bachmann’s presidential campaign, the FBI has now been given sworn testimony and documents alleging Bachmann approved secret payments to Iowa state Senator Kent Sorenson in exchange for his help and support in that state’s 2012 Presidential caucuses. Ethics rules explicitly prohibit Iowa lawmakers from accepting payments from Presidential campaigns or PACs. Investigation sources tell Take Action News the FBI is examining money laundering allegations against Bachmann, as well as possible wire fraud and mail fraud.
    The Bachmann case, though, is different. Her own team is alleging the campaign violations, and declaring that Bachmann knew about the actions in advance. Presumably, Bachmann — like other Presidential candidates — signed hundreds of disclosure reports filed with the federal government. If
    she lied on those reports, or mailed misleading financial statements, however, she may face serious legal trouble.

    Yeah, like with his wife.

  11. nicho says:

    There could also be photos of Marcus in a compromising position.

  12. cole3244 says:

    actually i think it makes more sense that she sees the writing on the wall that her political capital has run out with the voters, a person like her wouldn’t give up unless she sees a reality she can’t deal with, thats my opinion and i’m sticking with it.

  13. nicho says:

    She’s been in there for seven years now, which means that the American public has been subjected to seven more years of dumbing down. So, her replacement could be even crazier than she is.

  14. cole3244 says:

    minn will have to wait a very long time to live down the bachmann phenomenon, i am very interested to see whom her district elects to the house next cycle.

  15. Naja pallida says:

    All I can say is that there is something seriously wrong with the voters in Minnesota’s 6th district.
