Rep. Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota and a surging GOP presidential candidate, thinks that President Obama’s tactics in the debt-ceiling negotiations evince a lot of … well, take it away:

Clearly not a word she learned on the kibbutz. We look forward to her apologetic speel about how she has always shepped nachos from her strong knowledge of Yiddish-kike and that she considers herself and the Jewish people to be Mitch’s polka. (This was not just some pandering stick, in other words; what kind of a smock do you think she is?.) Furthermore, if the Republicans and Obama could only sit down together, smooze, and kibbutz, they’d get rid of this sore ass in no time.
