Comment of the Day: Sick burn on Bachmann
Earlier this year, a parody piece featuring fake quotes from Michele Bachmann criticizing Stephen Hawking's alleged flip-flopping about his theory of black holes fooled some people.
In response to our post about Bachmann going beyond parody in a new audio clip, commenter Jeff Skinner used Hawking -- who has been wheelchair-bound for four decades thanks to ALS -- became the latest person to use the famous theoretical physicist take a shot at Bachmann.
It's a bit off-color, but it's pretty good:
Ouch! Skinner's rip isn't entirely accurate, though, as we did give Bachmann props last summer for her surprisingly reasonable views regarding the perils of U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war.
