Hasta La Vista, Michele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann (R-Unemployed in 2015)

Michele Bachmann, unsuccessful 2012 presidential candidate, subject of FBI inquiry, Congressman and wife of "Pray The Gay Away (Except For Mine)" Marcus Bachmann, has decided to call it a day.Not seeking re-election in 2014. She says losing her seat isn't the cause. Sure.

An undistinguished rep from a safely gerrymandered district, she was the soul of the Evangelical Right for a short spell, which is likely her future occupation. Now martyred out of Congress, she can parlay her exile into every Fundamentalist yapper's dream, not working and getting paid for it. 

This one's for you, Chellie:http://johnnyangelwendell.bandcamp.com/track/crazy-eyes




She's set, like the other congressional hacks. You watch, she will go on one of those news networks and spew the same lines so she can earn a partisan royalty check. In fact, I think she's already doing a talking head routine there. No surprise, whether you're a member of the Democratic Party or the Republicans, you're gonna be put out to media pasture in a way like Elvis did by landing his fat ass in Vegas.

Now here's a question for you JW, given how gerrymandered that seat is, will the Republicons still be able to hold it after Bachmann fatigue? The Dems did really well in the last election against her. But a new face in her place? I suspect that they still may not be able to take it.

Anoka is very conservative and the district is 96% white.

I wouldn't be surprised if the party nudged her out.

Like the Bay Guardian?

Does Lorette Sanchez know about this?

More like Bachmann-Palin Overdrive. She will have to master that damn prompter thingamabob before she'll be ready for Fox. Staring off blankly into space makes her look stupid.
