Earthquake? Check. Hurricane? Check. Locusts? Stay tuned. Michele Bachmann says God may be trying to send a message to Washington.
 
"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians,” Bachmann told a crowd in Florida this weekend. “We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."
 
Bachmann’s reference to the twin natural disasters that visited the East Coast over the past week got the Internet all a titter, including this tweet from former Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tom Horner:
 
“On a gorgeous day like today, does it mean that God is happy with MN, Michele?”
 
Despite the commotion, Bachmann’s campaign said her remark was in jest.
