Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain will be in Phoenix today.
Today, Republican presidential candidates Herman Cain and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann both will be in Phoenix to kiss a little GOP ass/talk about immigration issues.

Bachmann will be puckering up for Senate President Russell Pearce at 10:30 a.m., and former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain will take a knee at the derriere of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at 3:30 p.m.

Both candidates have said they'll hold press conferences after meeting with their respective far-right-wing-nuts.

We plan to be at both press conferences, much to the dismay of Arpaio and Pearce, we're sure.

We have a few questions of our own for Cain and Bachmann, and have even enlisted the help of Tequila Party founder DeeDee Blase for some additional inquiries.

If the candidates actually spend more than three minutes with the local media, unlike the 180 seconds Bachmann spent with the press during her last Phoenix "press conference," we'll try to grill the presidential hopefuls as much as possible -- and we want your help.

If there are any burning questions you have for either Cain or Bachmann, leave them in the comment section of this post. We'll do what we can to make sure they get answered.

Per usual, the following disclaimer applies for New Times' faithful following: please keep the death threats/racist comments to a minimum.

Your radical leftist hyperbole and overkill are enough to make a maggot gag.

Did you know the New Times is a piece of bird cage lining?

You want to grill 'em?

I suggest Kansas City Masterpiece on a rotisserie over a low heat.

Cain supporters aren't far right. We're pretty down the middle, interested in less government intrusion in our lives. Get your facts straight fuckwit.

Why would you pick the two most toxic politicians in Arizona to speak with?  The last dozen or so people Arpaio has "endorsed" have gotten their asses handed to them.  And Pearce is about as popular as Olivia Cortes at a quinceanera these days. 

Desperation must enjoy company.

I have a question for both Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Cain.

Why are you both seeking the worthless endorsement of the MCSO shurf and, in Michele's case, recalled state Senate president Russell Pearce?

The MCSO shurf is under TWO federal investigations. One is for racial profiling and the other is for abuse of power. He may be indicted and perp-walked by the feds as soon as they wake up, get off their ass and make their move. 

Pearce has been recalled due to his increasing paranoia, mental sickness, corruption, and sleaziness. He was recently discovered as the culprit behind sham candidate Olivia Cortes' "campaign," a Class 5 felony in Arizona.

Two very mentally sick politicians, to say the least. Neither of you are getting my vote.

The two of you do realize that you are only being used by the party of privileged white christian males to convince the stupid average voter that the GOP is "open to all," right?

Bachmann:    Have you looked at how many illegal immigrants come across our northern border?    Why is everyone focused on just the southern border?     If the border was successfully closed to illegal immigrants and those jobs they supposedly take from Americans,  what does your analysis say this will have on the unemployment rate?

Are you as stupid as you seem to be?

OK here is a question for both of them. Considering that you have sought the endorsement of Arizona politicians who support increased spending on incarceration over education, is the Arizona model of for profit prisons and over crowded schools one you intend to implement on a national level and how do you see this policy helping the American economy.

Would you like to sit in on the Thomas hearings for a few days and see how things work in the MCSO?

That goes back to the 40s. You need something new if you're trying to disparage the content of articles and reports presented here. By the way, you have to print these articles for them to line your birdcage. It might be cheaper to use paper towels, instead.

Of course not.  It is a BS concoction written by the biggest con artist in history with the only redeeming value being the huge passages plagiarized word for word from the King James Version of the Bible.

First if you don't like AZ...get out....second why do all libs base things on race and religion? Oh I know b/c you can't think of anything bright to say....

Too deep for such shallow minds, RA. Good try, but a question that is totally relevant and will never be considered. Cain would simply reply, "9,9,9" and Bachmann would just stare into space, waiting for something on the teleprompter to give her a clue...

Jason

Both Bachmann and Cain would rather seek Thomas' endorsement.

BTW, did you see the pics of them the Arizona Republic ran the other day? Rachel Alexander looked like she slept with a wet mop. Candy Andy was babbling about the giant conspiracies between the MCBOS, the four judges, the two lawyers, the county manager and deputy county manager, etc. And Aubuchon looked like she was PMSing real bad...

The New Times disparage's it's own "content"...articles? Hardly... Reports? Humorous.... Factual? Not.....Full of crap? BIRD CAGE LINING........Publication? Embarassing.... Keep voting obama Tommy...God Bless you!

So it's redeeming value is that it's plagiarized from another BS concoction?

Kurt

Oh yes, because it's libs that are consistently trying to legislate Jesus, fearmonger against other religions and frequently use racebaiting dogwhistles, especially against Latinos.

And then it's our fault for bringing that up, of course. Fantastic logic.

I think if she's using a teleprompter....that means obama won't be speaking til he get's it back....oh wait........... that's a good thing.

I guess I'm just trying to be optimistic but you are correct Tommy. Politics and politicians seem to be more about sound bites, slogans, and money with very little intellectual substance.

That was Aubuchon?  I thought it was a cave woman!

Even I know Tommy didn't vote for Obama.  Get it right.

A cave woman would look better than Aubuchon ANY day of the week..
