GOP Abandons Michele Bachman

Remember this atrocity?


"Most Americans are wild about America and they are very concerned to have a president who doesn't share those values...

"What I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out if they are pro-America or anti-America..."


After Bachmann's McCarthy-esque rant caused widespread outrage, she tried to recant by claiming Chris Matthews ate her brain:

I just didn’t recognize — I never watched the Chris Matthews show before. I should have before I went on. I didn’t recognize that he would lay a trap the way that he did.
Too late, Michele.

To date:

• Colin Powell publicly and prominently called her remarks nonsense.

• An online petition with 55,000+ signatures demands she be censured by Congress.

• Her congressional opponent Elwyn Tinklenberg, has been deluged with food, volunteers and more than $1.3 million in donations on top of another $1 million in ad support from the DCCC.

• And lastly, the most gratifying cut of all:

Two sources aware of ad buys in Minnesota say that the National Republican Congressional Committee is pulling its media purchases from Bachmann's race. If true, it is a remarkable fall for a congresswoman who, until recently, seemed relatively safe in her predominantly conservative district.
Uh huh, payback's a mean bish, and Bachman earned every inch of it.

Defend the bad against the worse."
