Michele Bachmann on Hurricane Irene

Michele Bachmann Calls Hurricane Irene a Warning From God

Michele Bachmann Calls Hurricane Irene a Warning From God

There's a new quote to add to the always-growing list of crazy things Michele Bachmann has said. This time she's saying the earthquake and hurricane on the East Coast are warnings from God.

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'"

Michele's spokesperson has said it was a joke, but I don't know which is worse, joking about a natural disaster that has killed at least 25 people so far, or seriously believing God is warning America with hurricanes and earthquakes.

Hurricane Irene has passed through the US but has left flooded streets, crushed trees, destroyed houses, and lost lives in its path along the East Coast. Although the big cities were mostly spared, there have been thousands of canceled flights and Vermont has been hit hard with flooding — the worst the state's seen in 100 years. See photos of the storm and its aftermath now, and tell us, what do you think of Michele's statement?
