Bachmann Gives Us Gas

Michele Bachmann may be leaving Congress, but she just had to make one last silly gesture. She took to Twitter this week and posted a photo of herself standing under a gasoline station sign with the caption “$2 gas, anyone?”

Michele Bachmann gives us gas

Just in case you didn’t get the message, conservative writer Mollie Hemingway retweeted it with the comment “Oh, look! Despite the mocking, Michele Bachmann predicted correctly after all.” Conservative rag WorldNetDaily ran the story under the headline “Michele Bachmann Gets Last Laugh at Her Critics.”

There is just one problem with Bachmann taking credit for the current low gas prices. During her failed run for the presidency Bachmann promised “Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again. That will happen.”

She may have gotten the price right, but one has to wonder if she is aware that she isn’t president.

    I’m afraid it’s optimistic to think this is Bachmann’s last silly gesture.

    Sarah Palin has gone before her, and demonstrated that a silly person with great makeup has a virtually infinite half-life after leaving office, thanks to the huge amount of time to fill and the near-infinite coffers of the right-wing noise machine.
