Michele Bachmann mocked with her own words in Tarryl Clark's new website
All the greatest hits in one fun package
Just in time for her paranoia road show in California, Michele Bachmann's crazy conspiracy theories have all been gathered in one neat interactive package by her DFL challenger, Tarryl Clark.
Whether in fun quiz form, nifty embeddable widgets for your blog for or interactive sound board, the sixth district congresswoman's greatest hits are all there.
The Obama paranoia: "I'm very concerned that he [Barack Obama] may have anti-American views.
The AmeriCorps paranoia: "Young people will be put into mandatory service ... there are provisions for re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in the philosophy that the the government puts forward."
The health care paranoia: "Death panels are the bureaucracies that President Obama is establishing where bureaucrats will make the decision on who gets access to health care and how much."
Test your knowledge. It's safe for work
The Bill Clinton paranoia: "They said that Bill Clinton gave a speech yesterday -- the former president -- at the Center for American Progress, John Podesta's group. He gave a speech, and he called me out in his speech."
And of course, the too-crazy-for-Glenn-Beck census paranoia: "Private personal information that was given to the Census Bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up, in a violation of their constitutional rights, and put the Japanese in internment camps."
Bachmann could, in fact, use the the site as a cheat sheet for those Eagle Forum speeches.
The new site is only the latest in a series to mock Bachmann with her own words and ambitions. In February, Clark and the other DFL challenger in the race, Maureen Reed, launched dueling map tools that track the congresswoman's travels outside the state as she burnishes her national image.
Just before the Bachmann-Palin love fest last month in Minneapolis, Clark's campaign spoofed the event with another site that allowed anyone to submit a photo of themselves and have it morphed into an image of Bachmann and Palin together.
The Clark site played off the fact that photo ops with Bachmann and Palin went for as much as $10,000 each.
