Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota now claims she was just kidding when she said Hurricane Irene and the earthquake centered in Virginia last week were a warning from God to politicians.
“Of course I was being humorous when I said that,” the comical presidential candidate laughed reassuringly. “I am a person who loves humor. I have a great sense of humor.”
The religious congresswoman ought to be more careful with her jokes. There is no evidence whatsoever in the Bible that her God has a sense of humor. The last thing she wants to find are lice in her big new hairdo, or for it to start raining frogs in her home state of Minnesota, just two of the Ten Plagues of Egypt, according to the Book of Leviticus.
Be afraid, Michele. Be very afraid.
