As promised, here’s the second Mediocre Fight of the Day. This one features Republican presidential front-runner, and Congresswoman from my home state of MN, Michele Bachmann. It also features her crazy-ass eyes. I mean, look at this – this is a completely undoctored photo of her.
It’s like she’s staring into my soul. Actually no, it’s like she’s trying to forcibly tear my soul from my body with her mind. I don’t know which of her publicists gave the green-light for this magazine cover, but wow. I decided to take a stab at photoshopping her to actually make her look sane, and did a pretty good job of it. Then I realized photoshopped pictures making people look normal aren’t very entertaining, so I went ahead and made an animated gif out of it instead.
I apologize to anyone I inadvertently hypnotized with this image.
Now, Minnesota is no stranger to lunatics in office. We did elect Jesse “The Body” Ventura as our governor once, if you’ll recall. But Bachmann has her own special brand of crazy, as evidenced by some of her quotes:
“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president
“Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”“If we took away the minimum wage — if conceivably it was gone — we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”
