Forget Irene. We have Hurricane Michele

posted by remims

Michele Bachmann. Oh, man, how it hurts to be put a spot of defending her. To wit, her comment — obviously tongue-in-cheek as much as it was ill-advised and shoot-from-the-crazy-hip — linking the East Coast’s recent earthquake and Hurricane Irene […]
