Not to be outdone by Sarah Palin as the loudmouth, hairbrained politician of yesteryear, former Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann proved Wednesday she still has a craw stuffed full of crazy desperate for the national spotlight when she wildly claimed that President Obama’s pending nuclear deal with Iran would likely be “the start of World War 3.”
Of course, as can be seen in the video below, President Obama indicates that, to the contrary, the extensive monitoring of Iran’s nuclear work will be unprecedented, allowing the most “intrusive,” “transparent” access to its facilities in history. It’s a deal several countries, including China, France, Russia, the U.K. and Germany, support. If only Republicans here in the U.S. could do as much. Conservatives, however, are far too fearful of Iran’s intentions to consider any such diplomatic path forward. Take, for example, Michele Bachmann’s April 8 interview on “Florida Live.” Bachmann stated:
This puts Iran in a position where they would have the firepower to be able to take out not only Israel, but they would have the firepower to use intercontinental ballistic missiles against the United States with nuclear-tipped warheads.

Bachmann went on to say that if her predictions were to come true (adding that the deal “virtually guarantees” it), then Obama would officially be the “worst president that the United States has ever had to endure.”
It makes you wonder how many different ways Bachmann may have linked the president to Kevin Bacon while she’s at it. You see, in Bachmann’s mind Obama’s linked to everything bad in the world, even WWIII — you know, the other apocalypse constantly tossed around as a possible overnight death of us all. It’s like he’s constantly getting blamed for the Bacon Brothers but never gets any credit for “Footloose.”
This is perhaps Bachmann’s weakest tin foil hat attempt yet at maintaining the political limelight. She’s coasting on her crazy fumes of the past and her name’s notoriety, but she’s going to have to try a little harder than that, if she’s going to reach the peaks of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”
