Exhibit A: An audio tape of Michele Bachmann praying for You Can Run, But You Cannot Hide Ministry. Do pay attention when Bachmann says "We are in the last days" and "the Harvest is at hand." The clip is from 2008, from that brief period when it looked like Bachmann might lose re-election. We shouldn't be surprised when an evangelical Christian talks about the end of days in these terms -- it's been happening for a while -- but it is a jarring thing to hear from the contender to the 2012 GOP nomination.
Exhibit B: A video of YCRBYCHM's Bradlee Dean opining about how President Obama has done more damage to America than Osama bin Laden.
Have at it, Iowa caucus-goers!
