Bachmann Not Afraid of Government Shutdown: Yoda Responds

Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) recently commented that she was unafraid of either a government shutdown or defaulting upon the government’s debts, both potentially economic devastations to be caused by unnecessary actions of her Republican House Caucus. Yoda, Jedi Master, commented from his retirement “Not afraid you are? You will be. You . . . will . . . be.”



  1. Pretty brave words from someone who thought the sky was falling following the enactment of Obamacare

    • Yeah, these clowns are saying that the effects are already devastationg and it hasn’t gone into effect yet. WTF? Plus, the only devastation on the horizon has “Brought to You by the Republican Party” stamped on it in big red letters.

  2. But, but, but she’ll loose her farm subsidies AND Marcus’s Pray-the-Gay-Away clinic won’t be paid!

    • Plus Bachmann has said she’s not running for re-election so if she screws the whole party, meh, not a problem for her.

      I am also a negotiator and I can’t imagine the challenge of trying to negotitate with someone like her (I prefer rationality as a basic for negotiations). Note that she worked for the federal government and couldn’t get a real job.

      • Even worse, she was originally an IRS tax lawyer. Can you get more “government employee” than that?
