Michele Bachmann’s Top 10 Crazy Comments

Well, Glenn, I have experienced that throughout my political career, being labeled a kook. - Michele Bachmann to Glenn Beck

Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) “history lessons” include assertions that the founding fathers ended slavery and Lexington and Concord are in New Hampshire. Then there are her recent references to Planned Parenthood as "corrupt" and"committing crimes." For sheer zaniness, however, check out the quotations below compiled by Think Progress. They have the details on each statement; they’re also to be complimented for shifting through so much material and coming up with the 10 craziest comments of this Tea Party favorite and presidential candidate:

 1. Bachmann warned "The Lion King" was gay propaganda
 2. Bachmann claimed abolishing the minimum wage would create jobs
 3. Bachmann claimed that scientists are supporters of intelligent design
 4. Bachmann claimed Terry Schiavo was "healthy"
 5. Bachmann likened visiting Iraq to visiting the Mall of America
 6. Bachmann claimed that carbon dioxide is "harmless"
 7. Bachmann called for a Congressional witch hunt
 8. Bachmann suggested a gay singer should repent after getting cancer
 9. Bachmann boasted about breaking the law by not completing the census
10. Bachmann claimed that Glenn Beck could solve the debt crisis

Real presidential material, right?

I saw this. I have only one comment, and that is that I have no comment. Hers speak for themselves.

Bachmann speaks but is consistently incapable of making sense.
