Bye bye, Michele Batshit

OK then; just cut and run when the going gets a little tough.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) — the tea-party firebrand facing investigations and a daunting reelection race — abruptly announced on Wednesday morning that she will not seek reelection to a fifth term.

Her move marked a spectacular fall for a congresswoman with a bull’s eye on her back every congressional cycle: Less than two years ago, she won the Iowa straw poll and was briefly regarded as a serious contender for the GOP presidential nomination.

Her decision had nothing to do, of course, with the fact that she nearly lost last November in a district that voted for Mitt Romney by a margin of 56-41. Nor did it have anything to do with the federal inquiry into her campaign finance irregularities.

Nope, she just wants to spend more time with her husband Lee Liberace the voices inside her head telling her to file another bill repealing Obamacare.

Sadly, this probably doesn't represent a flip opportunity for Democrats but a door opening for some "reasonable Republican" (sic) to replace her. You just have to hope that the TeaBags don't already have a replacement lined up.

She also gets to spend more time with her TWENTY-EIGHT KIDS!

I didn't make that up. 28. (OK< a few of those are adopted, but amazingly, I'm not lying about the 28.)

Please let God tell her to run against Al Franken...

Sexist much, Diddie?

I just bet that Katy is one of those who accuses pro-lifer of hypocrisy if they don't foster/adopt kids -- and now makes fun of a woman who actually did what she demands of pro-lifers.

I've got something just for you, Greg. I'm going to make it a stand-alone post in just a moment.

Regarding your second comment (which won't appear), you are of course disallowed from ad hominem against other commenters in this space.

I don't fan conservative flames; I extinguish them.

Gee, all I did was point out the hypocrisy of those who argue that pro-lifers should adopt orphans while mocking pro-lifers who adopt them. If that is a flame, then I'm proud of it.
