In early January, notable crazy woman, former congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, stated she was considering running for Al Franken’s U.S. Senate seat. She was turning to God for the answer. From New York magazine:

“I’ve had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat, and the only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate,” she said on [Jim] Bakker’s show over the holiday weekend. “The question is, should it be me? Should it be now?”

Bachmann is hoping God will provide an answer. “So the question is, am I being called to do this now?” she said. “I don’t know.”

God seems to have spoken. Loudly. With a billboard in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The billboard was the result of a fundraiser from the, who runs the always entertaining God twitter feed. The account quickly pulled in $7,000 for the billboard and up it went.
