I would not have figured her for an Edgar Broughton Band fan.

I can't help but wonder why she wore that baggy, unflattering coat.

She's still wearing the same sandals she always wears! Doesn't she have another pair of shoes?

I'll fact check ya, Bachmann, ya Goomar.

Goodfellas:

1) Who winds up frozen in the meat truck and it takes them days to thaw him for autopsy?

2)When they wanted dresses and suits, where did the fur coats go?

3) What song was playin' when Franke Carbone was found?

Isn't she supposed to be wearing a hair net?

Angry Parakeet -- There's also video of her caressing the meat. You're not supposed to touch the meat!

So, this is baffling to me, but I'm a bit linear in my thinking. I'm assuming she's visiting a meat packing plant to either hob-nob with the executives and/or try to "connect" to the "common man" of the packers themselves.

I just don't see how a photo showing her walking -- alone -- down an aisle lined with hanging slaughtered meat does anything other than make her look like a very bewildered Alice in Carcassland.

Oh, for a little Meat Joy!

Aunt Snow said...

Alice in Carcassland! Hilarious!

Next - the ropeline handshaking photo-op! E coli for everyone!

Now if she were punching the meat, a la Rocky, that I would have respect for.

This wandering around in a cold room with dead things...eeewwww weird lady in bad shoe wear.

Seriously what IS up with those hideous sandals.. and who wears open toe in a slaughter house.

My head hurts.

Hairnet? She's wearing open shoes, ferchrissakes! In a meat-packing plant? Ewwwww!

So that's what happened to Bachmann's foster girls...
