GAFFES MEAN THINGS* (*unless you’re a democrat)

Michele Bachmann today was reported as praising American achievements, such as the Intercontinental Railroad.

Of course, last time anyone checked in American history, there has never been, nor is there ever likely to be, an inter-continental railroad.

Unless they decide to build a trestle between New York City and London, England.

Of course, the media is likely to have a veritable field day with this latest Bachmann gaffe, and use it once again to showcase how utterly uncouth and ill-informed she is.

No wait. My bad. It wasn’t Bachmann who said that.

It was Barack Hussein Obama (hmm-hmm-hmm-pbuh).

Never mind.

Move along.

Nothing to see here.

    Does that intercontenental railroad go through all fifty-seven states? Does it go through that town that suffered ten thousand dead from a tornado this year? Does this railroad employ any corpse men?

    Just asking.

    Hopefully the conductors speak austrian on the intercontinental railroad. I have heard it goes through there.

      I am still waiting to see if it has any stops in Fantasyland. I need a break from this administration.

    I also believe that President Franklin Roosevelt heralded the Intercontinental Railroad as an aside while he was trying to assuage the fears of the American people during his televised address when the stock market crashed in 1929.

    Nothing to see there. Move along, for sure. Calm down, just a slip of the tongue. He meant “transcontinental” railway. We Canucks built one of those in the late 19th century.

      Nice crystal ball reading there, Canuck. It must be nice to be able to know what people “meant” instead of just what they SAID.

      Yeah, you Canucks did build a nice transcontinental railway, and some of us have spent many many hours listening to Gordon Lightfoot’s song about it. “There was a time in this fair land/When the railroad did not run..”

      But you don’t need to rush in to defend Barry and his latest silliness. He has plenty of domestic knee-padders to do that for him.

        What is “sarcastic” aboot reminding us that Canada built a transcontinental railroad?

      • Green Mountain Boy September 28, 2011 / 2:09 pm

        Just my view based on other posts of his I have read. It reeks of sarcasm against teh won.

      No, since he said the same thing back in February I’m pretty sure he meant it.

        And Congressman Keith Ellison repeated it on MSNBC last night. It was not a slip of the tongue – they simply do not know what they are talking about.

      Actually, the Russians did, back when they were ruled by the czars. Which might explain why Obama has appointed so many of them.
