Idiot of the Week: Michele Bachmann

This week flew by, and it is hard to believe that it is Idiot of the Week time already. Here at Atheist Revolution, a new idiot is crowned each Saturday. So let's get to it!

I may be getting lazy here, but when I heard the following come from Christian extremist Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), I immediately knew she was desperate for Idiot of the Week recognition:
This cannot pass. What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass.
Way to inject your ridiculous religion into the health care debate! I suppose that spouting nonsense like this is easier than trying to explain how you are opposing reform simply because your political party wants to make the President look bad.
