Have you ever had an acquaintance who was so self-deluded that you were actually jealous of that person, because they seem to actually believe all of crazy juice spewing out of their mouths? That’s kind of how we feel about Michele Bachmann. Like, how fun would it be to live in that woman’s brain? Everything just is how you want it to be in your imagination!! I want a rainbow to appear, poof! I’m the best candidate for president, poof! Huma Abedin is a terrorist, poof! My husband isn’t gay, un-poof!
Or, if the candidate for president you support is one of the wealthiest people ever to run for the office and has a widespread reputation for being out of touch with common Americans, just pretend it’s the other guy who is Thurston Howell, III. Witness this exchange between Michele Bachman and a reporter for USA Today:
Reporter: You’ve outlined all the problems in the US, in the economy, and then there are those who say, ‘How can someone with that kind of vast wealth really connect with the American public, really understand what the plight of the American public is?’
Bachmann: Well, President Obama is extremely wealthy. He and his wife have been wealthy for a number of years, and so I think that’s really the issue. President Obama is wealthy, what does he understand about the common man right now?
