The stupid! It BUUUURRRRNNNS!!!

How does Michele Bachmann keep getting elected when she's got the intellectual capacity of a beer bottle? She thinks the US should drill in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge because there isn't any wildlife there. The TPM link takes you to Bachmann's National Review article, which shows aerial photographs of ANWR. As in pictures taken from the air. As in, you can't tell if there's any wildlife because you're in a plane and you're too high above the ground to see anything.

Here is a list of ANWR's wildlife, in case anyone's interested. If you click it, you'll find some photographs of wolves and caribou and tundra swans and dall sheep and all sorts of animals that Bachmann pretends don't exist.

It gets better. She also thinks that we don't need to worry about the environment because Jesus saved the world 2,000 years ago.

How do her constituents justify voting for her, anyway?
