Another Republican Dimwit

Ouch! Her Jubilation Must Have Hurt!

And You Thought Bush Had Cornered the Market!

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told OneNewsNow that the U.S. doesn’t need environmental advocates such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) because Jesus saved Earth already:

[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she’s just trying to save the planet. … We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet — we didn’t need Nancy Pelosi to do that.

Besides hitting the Speaker of the House over the head with religion, Bachmann proved that she needs to go back to grade school for her awful grammar and reasoning:

1. "Just trying to save the planet" has no longer been considered a "fanatical" term. It's used very commonly and in no way connotes exclusivity or bravado.

2. Jesus saved SOULS, not the physical earth. When Nancy Pelosi speaks of the earth, she is speaking about that big round ball (O.K., not quite) we live on, the one Bachmann's ancestors, as well as everybody else before her, have ruined.
3. "Someone" and "they", while mildly correct is very awkward. Instead, it should be "Someone" and "He"
4. Unless Nancy Pelosi lived 2,000 years ago, the proper form would be "we don't need Nancy Pelosi to do that."

Besides trying to sabotage the English language and belittling Pelosi about a subject even Christofascist Pat Robertson agrees with, Bachmann should being home studying and trying to pass the sixth grade.

Another reason I wouldn't want to be in her district:
