The Daily Kos has the article Michele Bachmann says the Rapture is coming: ‘Rejoice’. This article discusses the Talking Points Memo article Michele Bachmann: Thanks Obama For Bringing On The Apocalypse.
Here is a quote from The Talking Points Memo article.
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed a mixture of condemnation and appreciation toward President Barack Obama for, in her words, bringing the world to end times.
“We need to cry out to a Holy God,” Bachmann said on Jan Markell’s “Understanding the Times” radio show over the weekend. “This is coming faster than anyone can see.”
You really have to hear the audio clip the article provides.

The fact that there are people like this running around our government is really frightening. You can be sure that Michelle Bachmann is not the only one in our government that believes this.
What is more frightening is captured by this quote from The Daily Kos article:
It is flagrantly obvious that the people most convinced that Iran is an irrational theocratic state whose leaders see themselves as religious prophets destined to destroy their enemies and elevate their own religion into global dominance over all others are leaders who consider themselves to be—precisely that.
Even this quote needs further interpretation of how frightening this is. What most of the rest of us think about Iran and its government is more like some people in our own government, and the normal people don’t even recognize it. Not only do they not recognize it in our own people, but they don’t recognize that their understanding of Iran was planted in their minds by crazy people.
