    Bachmann is absolutely not ONE BIT more grounded in reality than Alan West.  She, like he, is a narcissistic, ignorant ideologue.  I think she gets away with it more because she wears pearls and crisp little lady suits.  

    But never forget that this woman is a religious zealot of the first order, a woman married to who many think is a gay man, who has a business built on "praying away the gay," and who would deny gay people every civil right on the table.

    Not to mention what she'd like to do to American Muslims. She's every bit as bat shit crazy as Allen, and I'm terribly disappointed she won again.

      Which is why I chose her for my comparison.

      Someone downthread commented "West's taking hostages", and that's how crazy I think he is.

        It's just that I don't agree with your comparison which suggests that Bachmann is less lethal than West. She supports everything he does, and has made every bit as many outrageous statements to that effect.

        And, Bachmann owns farms that take big subsidies from the government. Which makes her not only a dangerous zealot, but a freaking hypocritical one as well.  A selfish, me first, icon of the far right.

        But you know, sidnora, why should we argue about which of these nuts is worse? We agree on so much, and let's face it, when it gets as nutty and despicable as West and Bachmann, it's somewhat of a fool's errand trying to decide which one is the most ludicrous.
