Pop quiz: What do Michele Bachmann and "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore have in common?

If you said, they’re both punchlines from 2012 that have thankfully been forgotten…well, you’re right. But the answer we were looking for is, they’re both part of today’s most unexpectedly hilarious viral video:

Bachmann is leaving congress at the end of her current term, and we now know why. Clearly, she’ll be hitting the midwestern battle rap circuit a la Eminem in 8 Mile.

We can see her now: Hunched over in a hoodie, swaying to an imaginary beat, rhymes about mom’s spaghetti running through her mind.

Sorry, we might be thinking about how she prepped for the Republican primary debates.


Anyway, regardless of your feelings on her politics, we can all agree on two things:

  1. Michele Bachmann might be the worst white rapper in the history white rap. Seriously, this woman makes Vanilla Ice look like Jay Z.
  2. It’s a good thing that she was unsuccessful in her bid for the White House. What if the word "incredible" popped up on the teleprompter during a State of the Union address and she started spittin’ about poppin’ tags?!

Anyway, enjoy Michele’s attempt to take over the rap game, and join us in imagining a parallel universe in which Mrs. Bachmann is a one-hit wonder and Macklemore is in congress.

We’re guessing he’d be really fun and popular at first, then with his second single term he’d get all serious and preachy, and everyone would forget about him.
