Love her or hate her but Minnesota Republican Rep. Michelle Bachmann always brings the crazy. She’s like the non-singing, non-dancing version of Paula Abdul only on crack and much scarier.
So, what kind of crazy has Michelle brought this time? The Washington Independent reports about a rather stunning interview Rep. Bachmann gave to the uber-conservative WorldNetDaily, in which Bachmann said she will run for president only if God tells her to run:
“If I felt that’s what the Lord was calling me to do, I would do it,” she answered. “When I have sensed that the Lord is calling me to do something, I’ve said yes to it. But I will not seek a higher office if God is not calling me to do it. That’s really my standard.
“If I am called to serve in that realm I would serve,” she concluded, “but if I am not called, I wouldn’t do it.
Just in case you think I’m joking, remember back in 2006, Michelle told the Twin Cities megachurch Living Word Christian Center she was “hot for Jesus” and God told her to run for Congress.
