Get Your Envelopes Ready

Via TPM, lookit Michelle Bachmann:
"If I felt that's what the Lord was calling me to do, I would do it," she answered. "When I have sensed that the Lord is calling me to do something, I've said yes to it. But I will not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it. That's really my standard.

"If I am called to serve in that realm I would serve," she concluded, "but if I am not called, I wouldn't do it."
How much would it cost you to send her mail - urging her to run of course - with a return address of Heaven?

Cool. Palin/Bachmann 2012 will be the hottest ticket in town. It won't be a presidential ticket though, it'll be a ticket to some kind of ladies mixed martial arts competition.

If gawd sez so, of course. Husband & children? Gawd trumps them every time.

with a return address of Heaven?
If people sometimes think it's worth remarking that "God's in his Heaven", it follows that this is not always the case, and sometimes God is somewhere else (possibly for tax reasons).* Ergo, would not any other return address do equally well?

* Sometimes, for instance, he is IN MY HEAD.

Dear Michelle, I would like you to run for Preznit with S.Palin as your VP. I think you should make a reality Teevee series about the two of you and your families traveling around together in a mobile home. Perhaps the viewers could vote people out of the van.

why did I read this post as Malkin??


I need help.

Another Kiwi said...

'God is his heaven" might also imply the existance of multiple heavens. I'm sure that someone could find 16th century woodcuts that explore that concept.
Or my own heaven to be in London in 1966 to see the World Cup Final, England v West Germany and see The Who live at the Marquee.

God says do a handstand.
God says spin around three times.
God says make an animal noise.
Sit down.
YER OUT BACHMANN! I didn't say "God says".

No, no, I can completely understand what it is Michelle is saying here.

I almost always do what god tells me. Why, just yesterday he told me to drink half a bottle of scotch, eat ten milligrams of valium and go lay in the middle of the street with a toy xylophone.

At first, the neighbors seemed concerned and agitated, but they calmed right down when I explained to them that I was only doing what god had called me to do.

Ahh, the power we vest in invisible superheroes who live in outer space...

Obviously a false god, mikey.

Should have been half a bottle of tequila

I wonder how much a skywriter costs.

Pfft. Everyone knows God's country is Canada.

Canada gave us Celine.

Your God was having an off day?

Mendacious D said...

And you can keep her!

All part of the plan, you see.

She doesn't seem to understand that an ignorant bonehead "Christian mom" has to be arguably hot to be taken seriously as a presidential contender by the right wing.

And from now on, stop playing with yourself.

This one came to mind, even though it's only a 19th-century pastiche.

I wonder if it's fun whacking off as a pillar of salt, bibbeh.

Evidently Real Genius references are wasted on Anonymous.

Happy?

toy xylophone I think that should have been a clue to the fake godness
