Citizen of the Bizarro World: Michelle Bachman
Every now and then, I take leave of reality and pay a visit with our friends residing in the alternative universe called the Bizarro World.
The place where up is down, left is right and crazy is sane.
This visit I learned that Michelle Bachman (queen of verbal flubs and misstatements) is now one of the front-runners among GOP presidential nomination candidates. To be sure, I'm not surprised, this is par course for the folks living in facts be damn, make it up as you go land.
However, I was amused to see the state approved media - FIX NEWS - had the gall to ask Bachman is she a flake.
To me, I was like duh? I mean that's akin to asking an apple are you a fruit. Hell yeah, that lady is as flaky as a dandruff infested scalp.
But to hear the FIX ask her, I was stunned (you know that pot kettle thing).
After all, didn't FIX provide platforms for Hannity, O'Reilly and King Fruit Loop, Glen Beck.
But then I concluded, maybe FIX's intent wasn't to disparage her. Maybe, just maybe FIX wanted to see if she was qualified to become a leader in Bizarro.
Because if you ain't Flaky enuff, you ain't fit to led.
I didn't stay long. I transported back to reality via the decontamination zone.
