With the 2010 Minnesota gubernatorial race approaching, and Representative Michelle Bachmann still mum on whether or not she will run, the Democratic Governors Association has launched DraftBachmann.com, a hoax website ironically supporting her potential candidacy.
"If Michele Bachmann knows anything, it's that out-dated ideas -- like helping the middle class -- are ruining this country. And in a year when hospitals are struggling, teachers are being laid off and road repairs are delayed, Bachmann's ideas are exactly what we need if we are going to truly protect our billionaires."
The website urges people to pick a Fourth of July e-card to send out to friends and family. Each of the cards exhibits a prime Bachmann quotation.
Michelle Bachmann on global warming:
"...it's all voodoo, nonsense, hokum, a hoax."
Michelle Bachmann on common sense job creation:
"Literally, if we took away the minimum wage... we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level."
Michelle Bachmann on Barack Obama:
"I'm very concerned that [Barack Obama] may have anti-American views."
Michelle Bachmann on science:
"Where do we say that a cell became a blade of grass, which became a starfish, which became a cat, which became a donkey, which became a human being? There's a real lack of evidence from change from actual species to a different type of species. That's where it's difficult to prove."
Michelle Bachmann on setting life goals:
"My number one goal is to not go to jail."
Michelle Bachmann on Congress:
"I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-American or anti-American."
