How did we miss this latest Bachmann lunacy?

Yes, she's leaving office and she's being investigated by three or four federal agencies, but it's stunning that an elected official says such profoundly insane things.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) believes that we're living in the End Times -- and she claims to have proof.

In an interview Saturday with Jan Markell on the Christian radio program "Understanding the Times," Bachmann accused President Barack Obama of giving aid to terrorists. This, she says, is solid evidence that we have entered the Last Days.

“President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, U.S. taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including al Qaeda.”

She continued: This happened, and as of today, the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end time history. As Right Wing Watch's Brian Tashman points out, Bachmann -- who has previously spoken of the second coming of Christ -- was stretching the truth in her accusations against Obama.

"The Minnesota congresswoman referred to a decision by the Obama administration to allow vetted Syrian rebels not affiliated with terrorist organizations to help them resist chemical weapons attacks, which was spurred by the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on civilians," Tashman wrote. "While the administration’s move is only related to non-lethal, defensive and protective aid, Bachmann falsely claimed that 'President Obama waived a ban on selling arms to terrorists.'"

Still, though Bachmann may, according to "Understanding the Times," feel that "the baton of global leadership has been passed by America to the Mullahs, the Marxist world, and other dark forces," she says she's still very upbeat about the whole situation.

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann said. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this: that these days would be as the days of Noah.”

The arming terrorists pert is old news. We've been doing that since the end of WWII.

Rachel didn't miss it.

We didn't miss it, r3. That same article has been posted in at least 4 different threads these past few days.

Nobody cares about Bachmann or her fig leaf. It's non-news.

Bill Maher said that her knowing that Jesus is returning was the first time she's ever seen a man come.

Shit, that's funny, R5.

Well, Michelle will be at least partially right. It will be End Times for some people.

She's losing it, and it couldn't happen to a more deserving person.

Normally, I don't mock the mentally ill, but for her I'll make an exception.

Nah, still can't do it, R8. It's easy to be kind to people we already like. This woman is clearly having a psychotic break and it's all downhill from here.

End of Times. For her.

What do you mean "we", kemosabe?

It is the end of times, for her career. She's just projecting.

I remember a scripture mentioning almond trees blossoming. If only a few did you don't get all thrilled that spring is here and the point was that you have to have all the almond trees bloom before the end would come. Something about all the signs that point to the end would have to be fulfilled but I don't remember anything about the end and fig trees. I'll ask my Meemaw. She knows all about Armageddon and Jesus's words. Obviously Ms Bachman does not.
