On Sunday, Michele Bachmann spoke at a conservative rally in Florida, and it looks like she’s venturing back into the “national disasters as political commentary” area.
You may remember last year when Bachmann made some controversial comments regarding Hurricane Irene and the East Coast earthquake:
I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said: “Are you going to start listening to me here?”
Bachmann’s camp later assured us that her comments were made “in jest,” because nothing gets yuks like implying that a fiscally liberal White House causes natural disasters! Classic Bachmann!
This past Sunday, Bachmann returned to her weather rhetoric (weather-ic?) and it looks like she has discovered the art of the metaphor:
At this moment in time we’re quite literally looking at a hurricane here in Florida. We’re looking at a political hurricane in this country. We are looking at a spiritual hurricane in our land. And it is time for each one of us to show up and suit up and stand up and realize that in this time and in this day we pour it out for Him.
Once again, the GOP reminds us that they are God’s Own Party. A vote for the Right is a vote for Jesus!
Thanks for interpreting weather patterns for us, Bachmann!
I have some tea leaves that you can look at next, if you’re not too busy.
