Michelle Bachmann grabbed the Hurricane Irene spotlight for the wrong reason:
What she said was "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?'"

She reminds me of Sarah Palin and how her Pentecostal upbringing stilted her development. Palin was on YouTube prior to 2008 declaring that it was God's will that we were in Iraq to hasten the "Second Coming of Christ" by bringing on the "End of Days" (Armageddon).
