In Her Own Words

You would think that after acting like a starstruck school girl around Bush at the SOTU, U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachman (MN) would make sure the next time she gets in the news, it won't be for something embarrassing. But nooo:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann claims to know of a plan, already worked out with a line drawn on the map, for the partition of Iraq in which Iran will control half of the country and set it up as a “a terrorist safe haven zone” and a staging area for attacks around the Middle East and on the United States [...]

"Iran is the trouble maker, trying to tip over apple carts all over Baghdad right now because they want America to pull out. And do you know why? It’s because they’ve already decided that they’re going to partition Iraq.

And half of Iraq, the western, northern portion of Iraq, is going to be called... the Iraq State of Islam, something like that. And I’m sorry, I don’t have the official name, but it’s meant to be the training ground for the terrorists. There’s already an agreement made.
"
Say what?

Think Progress has the audio clip and transcript.

She later said she "was misconstrued", but her rambling new statement doesn't make sense, either.

A worthy successor to Katherine Harris, this woman.

Speaking of which, here's a Youtube video of Bachman professing she's "hot for God".
