Grad School Frenzy + Republican Takeover = Depressed Bianca!

First and foremost, I simply must apologize for my inconsistent posting as of late.  My only excuse is that my graduate school application is due on December 1, and of COURSE I left everything important until the last minute so I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get recommendations and such.  I have plenty of post ideas that have been inspired by this frenzy, including one about the incredible lack of manners that seems to be rampant among society these days (bah humbug!), even among well-educated folk!  But, more on that later.

Second, I thought it might be cathartic for me to pay some homage to the psycho who is YET AGAIN the representative for my district in Minnesota, the lovely Michele Bachmann.

I'm a psychopath!!  VOTE FOR ME!!
I guess when Einstein here said that a bill to save teaching jobs was "money laundering", or that President Obama "extorted" money from BP to compensate victims of the oil spill, people from this city/town/village/spot in HELL thought she was right!!  She is one batshit crazy woman, and this state (no, the country!) is in serious trouble if she continues to win elections.  In fact, there's a disturbing rumor that she and Sarah Palin could run on the Presidential ticket together.  And that, my friends, would be the beginning of the apocalypse.

Here are some more choice tidbits from this asshat:

"Young people will be put into mandatory service... There are provisions for re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward."
---Shortly after she said this, her son joined Americorps.  Ha!  Ha!

"Back in the 1970s, swine flu broke out then under Democratic President Jimmy Carter.  I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence."
---I think it's an interesting coincidence that my ears ring and I break out into hives every time I hear your voice.  But I'm not blaming YOU, Bachmann.  I'm blaming the Devil inside you!

"But if I was the head of BP, I would let the signal get out there - 'We're not going to be chumps, and we're not going to be fleeced.' And they shouldn't be.  They shouldn't have to be fleeced and make chumps to have to pay for perpetual unemployment and all the rest - they've got to be legitimate claims."
---Yes, because BP shouldn't be held responsible for the thousands of jobs and livelihoods that were devastated by this oil spill, which was caused by their own negligence.  Nice, Bachmann.

Let's not forget the time she told everyone not to fill out their census forms, because of all the evil purposes the government uses them for.  But, once she found out that they might actually eliminate her district in Minnesota because of the decrease in population, then it was okay.  ATTENTION 6TH DISTRICT: STOP FILLING OUT YOUR CENSUS FORM, AND MAYBE SHE'LL GO AWAY!!

Needless to say, I was one depressed li'l girl on Tuesday night!  And, to make matters worse, Minnesota is subject to yet another disgusting vote recount in the gubernatorial race, which is depressing in itself considering the Republican candidate, Tom Emmer, is about as psycho as she is!  Considering elections only happen every couple years, you'd think Minnesota could figure this shit OUT!

So, now that my political rant is complete, I will sign off for the night, with a promise that I will be back to lengthier posts with cartoons and the whole shebang in just a few short weeks!

And thank you to everyone's incredibly sweet comments in response to my drunken celebration post last week, it was quite the lovely weekend.  And, for your viewing pleasure, here's a pic of me and my girls at our Halloween celebration, beating up some poor guy.  Tequila Mockingbird is one nasty bitch!!

Poor Gilligan.  He's had so many problems, even without a group of roller girls.
From left:  Tequila Mockingbird (me), Gilligan, Dee Stroyer, and Boo Boo Bruiser.  Look out, bitches!!
Tequila kicking some dude in the balls.
After this display of rampant estrogen, this young man informed that HE, in fact, plays roller derby.
Men's roller derby?  Um, he deserved a kick in the balls, for reals.

Oh, lighten up.  I'm just kidding.

But men's roller derby??  REALLY?!!?

Ugh, I feel you on this completely. It's scary how ignorant these people are, yet they have so much power. I really hope that Palin doesn't run in 2012, if she does it surely will be the apocalypse.

I appreciate your usage of the phrase asshat.

Take solace gang. Republicans are in the same predicament they were midway through Clinton I: They won the midterms and felt all they needed was a candidate to bring the party together to win the presidency. Never happened because they had no such candidate, forcing them to settle on a guy who'd been trying to get nominated for 20 years. It's even worse now because Republicans are in their own internal civil war. The world will be right (the direction, not the political persausion) again soon enough.
