Michele Bachman’s Mouth

Maybe she’d do better if she kept it shut.

Not that I mind if she reveals herself to be the idiot that she is.

“Maybe she’s a little passionate, but she’s not scripted,” said Kent Sorenson, an Iowa state senator who is chairman of her campaign there. “She’s real. I think people are fed up with these politicians who are so scripted that you don’t know who they are.”

Yeah, she’s real, alright. Real stupid, and we know it.

Why has it become more important in this country that people who want to be PRESIDENT be “real” rather than “smart” or “educated” or “informed” or “articulate”? Is this part of OUR national insecurity (not to be confused with that of Canada), this knee-jerk reaction to someone being smarter then you possibly being better than you? If what you are comparing is apples to apples, in the category of intellect, if they’re smarter, they’re “better”! And you’re probably smarter than someone else, and you’re probably also smart enough to know that you’re not smart enough to be President.

And yet we feel perfectly comfortable electing people no smarter than we are to be president.

“When you speak six times a day, slip-ups can occur. . .”

And yet she thinks she’s ready to be president. I wonder how many times a day a President needs to speak, coherently and accurately. Without doing a statistical analysis, I’m guessing it’s more than 6.

    Talk about a not smart President. Let’s see, giving a half a 1/2 billion $$$ to a company that everyone knew was about to go belly up. Now that kind of stupid really hurts all of us. Wish I could get some of that $$. Just because you look good on TV does not make anyone smart. Paid for by “Hillary 2012”
