Yet another brilliant insight on Michelle Bachman by this amazingly talented cartoonist with unparalleled awards and above average hand lettering skills. I'm always impressed with how well he keeps his color within the lines too.

There has always been a special hatred that liberals reserve for conservative women and minorities. According to liberal thinking women and minorities have been bought and paid for by their party and anyone caught thinking for themselves becomes a target of their angst.

Taking Bachmann to task on history when such a large portion of our population, including our President and our Governor, are ignorant of the Consitution and our founding principles is pretty good satire. Doing yet another cartoon on Bachmann is a bit of a cop out though. That lame duck horse has been beaten to death.

The more absurd the conservative speaks, the harder the right wing extremists work pretending it is some sort of vendetta and not properly criticizing for for being absurd

lordwhatever, It hasn't been beaten enough. Every time this woman opens her mouth the people of Minnesota cringe. It is not as you say a conservative woman thing, nor is it a as you say a minority thing. It is that she opens her mouth and spouts untruths as much as people go to the bathroom

"That lame duck horse has been beaten to death." Now that her sycophant followers are willing to acknowledge her irrelevance by dismissing her as a lame duck; we can add her to the ever growing list of Tea-party and neocon icons that the fickle right have discarded. They all rally behind the insufferable lightweights and dolts similar to Bachmann and Palin and Bush and Limbaugh and Robertson and Beck and Savage and Coulter etc etc and then say that they never "really approved" of him/her after that failed object of their rabid zealotry are in the wind. Ya ,,, "That lame duck horse has been beaten to death". Oddly theire total oafishness and lack of any uniqueness within this group of dim bulbs will prevent the likes of Gohmert and Steve King from ever becoming leaders and thereby prevent them from achieving the same spectacular failure as the a fore mentioned. Life has its ironies. Who will be next. My money is on Ted Cruz; but Rand Paul has potential also for grand failure.

This is not about a so-called "liberal vendetta" against Bachmann, let alone conservative women. I'll listen very carefully and respectfully to an Olympia Snow, Margaret Thatcher, or Sandra Day O'Connor because it's likely they know what the heck they're talking about more than 25% of the time, unlike Michelle Bachmann or Sara Palin. Maybe the Republican Party should actually have more intelligent, well-informed women among its ranks to keep it from straying to some of the extremes toward which characters such as Bachmann and Palin have led them. I think John McCain would have been a much more viable candidate without the anchor of Palin around his neck.

The failure of these conservatives is baked into the cake and spells to for Paul and Cruz. They are driven to the extreme right where no recognition of facts or history is necessary, only ideological adherence to ideas that are increasingly seen as lunacy. Eventually those ideas meet up with reality and the general public rejects them. Certainly the social bigotry that united some of the working class (that had nothing in common with Republican politics) with the ultra rich running the party is now problemtatic. Conservative economic predictions of runaway inflation, skyrocketing interest rates and the lies that Obama is running up the deficit when he has reduced it in record fashion are all helping to crash the prospects of those fact challenged leaders. And finally, the lies being told on a regular basis about the ACA is really exposing the cancerous underbelly of the Repuboican Party: they don't care about people at all, only their ideological purity and political power. Their propoganda surroudning Obamacare is worthy of Nazi fasciist sloganeering.

This is a classic! To say there is a vendetta against strong, conservative women is ridiculous. There are a lot of idiotic members of Congress who have no regard for facts, science, etc. Most of them are men. Ours just happens to be a woman.

Deflection: diverting attention to a nut who has no control over much of anything from the supreme nut who is driving American foreign policy into a ditch.
