Juanita read today that Michelle Bachmann is hallucinating again. In describing Glenn Beck’s Old White People’s Pity Party in Washington, DeeCee, Bachmann said —-
“The crowds were overwhelming, and if you saw the aerials on the Drudge Report this weekend, there was an aerial photo. Unofficially, off the record, we talked to one of the guys from the National Park Police who told us he thought it was 1.6 million. There had to be over a million people there. People were packed in from the Washington Monument all the way to the Lincoln Memorial. And for anyone who’s ever been there, that’s a huge area.”
“Hell, Hon, even Glenn Beck thought there was less than a fourth of that number there. An independent expert put the number at 87,000. Bless Michelle’s heart, I think she’s so used to adding numbers to her IQ that she just got into the adding habit and made a damnfool of herself on teevee again. If they gave Emmy Awards for that, she’d be a shoe-in.”
“Which brings us to this,” she continues. “Somebody came up with the idea that Stephen Colbert should do a satire rally. ”
This would be the high water mark of American satire. Half a million people pretending to suspend all rational thought in unison. Perfect harmony. It’ll feel like San Francisco in the late 60s, only we won’t be able to get any acid.”
“I would so go to Washington Dee Cee for a humorathon. In my mind, I’m already there. The best part is that the Old White People Swimming in Self Pity wouldn’t get it. No wait, the best part would be that Glenn Beck wouldn’t get it. No wait, the best part would be watching Jon Stewart imitate Glenn Beck. No wait, the best part would be all the hooting laughter. No wait, the best part would that I would be there!”
Would it be the best time ever? Would a two ton hog make a lot of bacon?
