It seems that Christmas, Hanukkah and Superbowl Sunday all came at once for US Republican Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann, on July 3rd, when some guy called Mohamed Morsi was dethroned as president of Egypt by the Al Sissi-led Egyptian military.
In what looked like a sketch from Saturday Night Live, Bachmann added to her blooper reel of a career with a tour de force of cringe-worthy statements concerning the political and social divide that is splitting Egypt worse than an Ahly-Zamalek football match.
“We were cheering in front of our televisions back home in the United States,” Bachmann proudly announced. “We were cheering for you.”
In a brazen rejection of the international Mind Your Own Beeswax treaty, Bachmann goes on to talk nonsense in a weird show of support of the type of liberals and secularists that she likes to snack on in the US.
It took us a while, but Egypt finally nailed down itss niche; arbitrary violence. And like any group attempting to hone a skill, there’s a certain reassurance in finding out that there are important people out there who support our cause. Especially one that believes the solution to unemployment is to get rid of minimum wage and whose doctor husband tells homosexual patients to “pray the gay away.”
