Michele Bachmann: Flake, Joke, or To Be Taken Seriously

     Is Michele Bachmann a Flake, Joke or to be taken seriously?


Yes, she seems to have no clue about history. 
She is the constant butt of jokes because of how she flubs facts, like saying that John Wayne was from Waterloo Iowa when it was Serial killer John Wayne Gacey. 

It's easy to react to her like you would react to comedians Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. 

But when Chris Wallace asked her if she was a flake, presumably to let her debunk the reputation, she came back with a substantive response, and now, the right wing echo chamber is working hard to build cred for her, to make her look like a serious candidate-- one who "really cares." 

They point out that she has a solid team with Campaign manager Ed Rollins, who handled Ronald Reagan's campaign, cutting through the accusations that he was a shallow actor. 

Still when you look at her, it's hard to take her seriously. But it's always an advantage to be underestimated. There's no doubt she'll garner the tea party vote, but if people like Joe Scarborough and all of Fox News start making pretend she's not another joke, like Sarah Palin, that she's smart and serious, perhaps she WILL become a serious threat. Certainly, to achieve that, Ed Rollins will have to put a tight leash on her and her mouth.















She's a flake
She's a joke
She must be taken seriously
Not sure

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
