Hahahahaha... oh, wait.

I just drove over an hour in really awful snow with some of the worst drivers in the developed world (take a bow, New England!), so I was in the mood for something simple and soothing after sitting down to start my day. With coffee in hand, what could be better than making fun of Michele Bachmann? Just what my jangled nerves needed!

Via TPM:
"This is not symbolic, this is why we were sent here and we will not stop until we repeal a president and put a president in the position of the White House who will repeal this bill, until we repeal the current Senate, put in a Senate that will listen to the American people and repeal this bill," Bachmann said on the House floor Wednesday afternoon.
Ha!! "Repeal" the President and the current Senate! What a nincompoop!

Except, before I posted another lazy "I do not think it means what you think it means" snipe, I wanted to be sure she was actually wrong. Sad to say, friends, technically she wasn't.

From Mirriam-Webster:
1: to rescind or annul by authoritative act; especially : to revoke or abrogate by legislative enactment
2: abandon, renounce
3 obsolete :to summon to return : recall

Damn! Curse you, Bachmann! Spoil my fun with your awkward, obsolete but technically (and probably inadvertently) correct usage! You win this round!

Now, if only we could teach her the correct definition of "socialism."
