Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) – who is most assuredly not a kook – returned to the airwaves this week to call for an "orderly revolution".

Meanwhile, the democratically-elected "leaders" of her party spent several minutes plotting the road to recovery.

You'd better grab a hold of your underpants... it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were on vacation last week, so there are no new clips to share with you.

Instead, here are a couple of clips from Jon's January 2007 appearance on Charlie Rose.

The Daily Show

Monday: CNN Commentator Jack Cafferty

Tuesday: Actor Seth Rogen ("Observe and Report")

Wednesday: OMB Director Peter Orszag

Thursday: Author Tom Zoellner ("Uranium")

And here Stephen delivers Michael Steele's response in their ongoing Conservative Rap Battle.

The Colbert Report

Monday: Astronomer Derrick Pitts

Tuesday: Author David Plotz ("Good Book LP")

Wednesday: Author Dambisa Mayo ("Dead Aid")

Thursday: Twitter Co-Founder Biz Stone

...

While Stephen appears to have gotten the last word to your mother, sometimes looks can be deceiving.

Michael had a message for all the playa haters out there — you got punked!

"I'm very introspective about things. I'm a cause-and-effect kind of guy. So if I do something, there's a reason for it... It may look like a mistake, a gaffe. There is a rationale, there is a logic behind it," he said. "I want to see what the landscape looks like. I want to see who yells the loudest. I want to know who says they're with me but really isn't."

Or, as Denzel Washington put it in "Training Day":

"The shit's chess. It ain't checkers."

MC Steele also openly contemplated a Presidential run. Checkmate, bitches!

...

Moving backwards, from campaigns future to campaigns past...

Speaking at an Alaska GOP meeting, Gov. Sarah Palin had some touchy words for the godless heathens on Team McCain.

"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," said Palin.

"And the McCain campaign, love 'em, you know, they're a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray."

...

And speaking of Him...

The Texas Board of Education approved a science curriculum that opens the door for teachers and textbooks to raise doubts about evolution. ...

It isn't just evolution at issue: The board also approved an earth-science curriculum that challenges the widely accepted Big Bang Theory. Students are expected to learn that there are "differing theories" on the "origin and history of the universe."

Board members also deleted a reference to the scientific consensus that the universe is nearly 14 billion years old. The board's chairman has said he believes God created the universe fewer than 10,000 years ago.

...

Let freedom reign.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
