But I digress.
According to Think Progress, Bachmann promised to "significantly lower funding to social safety net programs" at a recent speech to the far right "Family Research Council." Bachmann, who has in the past hoped that the dire unemployment rate would help her presidential campaign, is a big fan of the FRC and its anti-everything-that-isn't-white-bread-and-god-fearin'-man-on-woman-filial-bliss-without-that-pesky-gangster government-interference view of the world.
So, in an effort to add to her already impressive highlight reel of nutball nonsense, she explains why we should starve the unemployed:
Jesus and Sandal Straps. So, what would Jesus do about the starving in our country? I think Michelle would probably have an answer similar to this: "Hey, ya know, Jesus would have stood firm on this, and although he didn't have boots and such, he knew that it was all about lacing up your sandals and whatnot. I think Jesus would say, 'Hey, I have a message for you lazies out there: You don't lace up your sandals and get to work, you don't get loaves and fish, and that's the bottom line!' and so, yeah, no nonsense from the Lord our God on that front."
