Think “Speaker Boehner” Is Scary? Try “Speaker Bachmann”

September 24, 2010

Pity poor John Boehner. Not only is he taking the brunt of Democrats’ attacks this election cycle, talk has suddenly sprung up that he’s not a shoo-in for the Speaker of the House job should the GOP retake the House in November. Even Michele Bachmann won’t commit to backing him:

Michele Bachmann, the Republican Minnesota congresswoman and informal leader of the House tea-party movement, similarly said she didn’t want to “speculate” on who might be the next speaker until Republicans regain power. “The next speaker of the House needs to be a constitutional conservative who has a wide open ear to the pleas of the American people,” she said. [WSJ]

Perhaps that’s because a “Concerned Citizen” has started the brand-spankin’ new website, BachmannForSpeaker.com. Saying, “We didn’t spend the past two years waking up the silent majority to hand it over to pro-government bailout RINOs like John Boehner!”, the site appears to have sprung up in the last week.

There’s even a poll: “Do you support this effort to refuse the Washington establishment to force John Boehner as the next Speaker instead of a real conservative like Michelle (sic) Bachmann?” As of this writing, “You bethcha I do!” is leading “No, I believe John Boehner has waited his turn after 20 years in Congress” 60% to 33%. (6% say “No we let a RINO like Boehner take over, but I haven’t decided which real conservative to support.” – Whatever that means.)

    Can someone translate “Do you support this effort to refuse the Washington establishment to force John Boehner as the next Speaker instead of a real conservative like Michelle (sic) Bachmann?” for me? I seem to have forgotten my moron-to-English dictionary today.

    Sadly, no matter how semi-literate these people are they stand a serious chance of taking control of the House and/or Senate in November. If this doesn’t scare you into voting make an appointment with your doctor: your heart and brain are failing.
