From the link: Bachmann once fired a staffer pregnant with her eighth child on Christmas Eve.

I kind of want Paul to spend $2.99 of the Stranger's money and review Fires of Siberia:

Michele Bachmann was the muse for a new romance novel called Fires of Siberia, to be published June 1, about a fiery presidential candidate who tries to bone up on her foreign policy credentials only to get stuck in the wilderness with a sexy stranger.…

I'm of the opinion that she knew damn well her campaign wasn't going anywhere, but that she'd use it to run a Sarah Palin (aka "Snowbilly Grifter" in the immortal words of Wonkette)-style con game on the rubes.

Turns out the key to that racket is not actually running for anything (which involves the FEC) but just hinting you might (which doesn't)

The ONE single dumbest thing? That's so hard to narrow down. I mean, her entire political career has been a non-stop trainwreck of dumb. It's impossible to single out one thing and call it her dumbest.

Yeah, but if Faux News gives her a million dollars, maybe not.

I think dumb here = something that backfires.

This piece is so true. Bachman was so much better lurking in the shadows. She should have been satisfied to be only a boogie man fueling the hater-aid of liberals and collecting money the few morons in her district who voted for her.

The second she hit the national spotlight Faux News HAD to cover her. And suddenly meat and potato Republicans, who only watch Faux News, saw what an empty-eyed mental patient she really was. There was no way around it.

Sarah Bail'n Palin was at least smart and greedy enough to realize how to keep her paychecks from the mouth breather Tea-baggers coming. It's a simple formula, you sit on the sidelines and bitch and never actually attempt to DO anything. They love that shit.

@1 She only did it to make the pregnant woman and her husband sleep in a stable that night.

I sure would like to have all the money Bachmann has spent on botox.

It's amazing how waxen her face looks when she's talking. "Barack Obama is a close friend of Bill Ayers who wanted to blow up the Pentagon," which she seems to be presenting as cause for concern, but not a whit of emotion furrows her brow. Ditto for any other subject.
