There’s a moment in this video when Michele Bachmann gets too crazy for Glenn Beck, and you don’t even have to play the video to see it:
If you do play the video, you’ll hear her ask of the US Census:
Do they really need to know our phone numbers? Do they really need to know, like you said, the date and time that we leave…mental stability?
Followed by a prolonged blink.
That’s Teh Crazy™.
You know the one question that is not on this survey, Glenn? “Are you a U.S. citizen?”
This is Teh Stupid™, because she also argues that this information can be used to round up Republicans and ship them off to the Glenn Beck doom bunker death panels.
“This would be your perfect opportunity to find out how many illegal aliens are in the United States.”
What? And enjoy the accommodations at FEMA death camps?!
After delivering this nonsense, she makes another prolonged blink. That blink is a recurring pattern with her special flavor of Teh Crazy™. In poker parlance, it’s her tell.
Now, here she is talking about Teh Evil Plan™ to turn school clinics into abortion factories:
I wasn’t sure what to make of it; I’m no psychologist. So I talked to a friend of mine with a degree in psychology and an interest in neurolinguistic programming.
But wait, I hear you cry. What is that…neuro thing again?
(A) model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behaviour and the subjective experiences (esp. patterns of thought) underlying them” and “a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour.
In plain English, my friend PistolPro studies psychological cues. He can “read” people.
The problem, he says, is that we’d need a sample of Michele Bachmann telling the truth to serve as a baseline — and try as I might, I cannot find a video of Bachmann that doesn’t have Teh Crazy™ in it.
