All aboard the cray-cray train! That chugga-chugga-woo-woo you hear coming down the tracks is America’s favorite lame-duck congresswoman under investigation by the Federal Election Committee for her 2012 presidential campaign — Rep. Michele Bachmann. Over the years, we’ve come to expect all kinds of inanity from Ms. Bachmann, and once again she has not let us down! This time, she entertains us by way of her appearance on Jan Markell’s show on Christian Radio.
The right-wing in this country is terrified of going up against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, so of course every chance they get, they bring her up and bash her. This time, Bachmann seemed to imply that Ms. Clinton is Goliath, the Republican Party (and presumably Bachmann specifically) is David, and by the mighty hand of God, Hillary will be defeated. God will stop trying to figure out how to convince us all to feed the hungry and house the homeless and step into domestic American politics. That’s how much he/she cares about who the President of The United States of America is. Bachmann said, equating the upcoming presidential election to the ultimate biblical tale of the underdog.
I look at the story of David and Goliath, all David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant. It wasn’t the stone, it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a Holy God.
Funnily enough, if Republicans don’t find a way to embrace some populist ideologies that don’t put them at odds with modern American life, they may in fact need divine intervention not only to beat Hillary in 2016, but anyone in any presidential election thereafter.
