Michele Bachmann continues her journey into complete and utter desperation by recruiting Donald Trump, the only person with a smaller chance of becoming president (other than all the current Republican candidates), to help her field questions in her telephone town hall…
[Michele Bachmann said] “He is not on the call this evening because he’s endorsing my candidacy for the presidency. He is on the call because he’s admired, he’s respected, he’s known all over the world as a man who understands the economy.”
That statement is so aggrandizing, I'm surprised Donald Trump didn't say it about himself. He did go on to say some very standard, run-of-the-mill trumpesque things…
…I couldn’t understand why somebody didn’t pick up what I was saying about China and OPEC, and that’s why I was leading, not just the birth certificate, which I’m very proud of. I got this guy to do something he didn’t want to do, and someone should continue to analyze that whole deal, by the way.”
What, does he think it's still early 2011? Last time I checked, we are living in a completely different era, late 2011. We're scared of completely different not-important-at-all-things now…
Alice from New Hampshire asked why Republican leaders were not speaking out against “what appears to be Marxist groups down there on Wall Street…" Mr. Trump said he had witnessed a weekend march down Broadway, and “it was not a pleasant sight.’’
Mrs. Bachmann had a more nuanced view. On the one hand, she said, “People are looking at this and trying to figure out, is this a George Soros-inspired protest?’’
I know George Soros is one of the richest men in the world, but he must be going broke paying for all those discarded cardboard boxes and old sharpies. I don't even want to think about how much money he must be spending hiring all those girls with dreadlocks to play the didgeridoo.

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart busted out his trusty chalkboard, Glenn Beck glasses and a bunch of puppets and proceeded to blow the lid off of Beck's program about George Soros. Under that lid? Another lid! And then another lid, and then an enigma wrapped in six or seven more lids, underneath a riddle obscured by several more lids. Really just an overabundance of lids. So click play if you dare, but be warned that science has yet to figure out how to unblow minds.
The startling exposé continues below.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
