Michele Bachmann

By Jeff Simpson

You might say how is Michele Bachmann relevant, she is just a congresswoman from MN, who was soundly beaten when she ran for President.   Yet Bachmann is in the top 5 of money raised in all of Congress! People from all over the country are taking their hard earned dollars and deciding that Michele Bachmann represents their values better than anyone else and sending it to her. 




What a sad commentary on America.  Can't we do better than that?   Are we doomed to keep rewarding ignorance and fear based campaigns?

  1. When the colored guy in the White House is believed to be a radical Kenyan Muslim by the wingnut crowd, demagogues like Michele Bachmann will have eager believers. On the other hand, the voters in her district need to find a Congressional representative who engages in rational thinking.

    1. The voters in her district have had opportunities to vote such candidates in and passed unfortunately.

      However rational you are, its hard to overcome a 12-1 spending deficit.

  2. IMHO, these people aren't working very hard for their money if they so eagerly give it away in large sums to such a dimwitted corrupt individual like Bachmann

  3. So, if you don't like someone, they're corrupt? I don't like her politics but I'm reasonable. She has sacrificed to do a lot of good in the world.

    Hardly corrupt, but you digress...

    1. She is not only corrupt, she is without scruples and BATSHIT CRAZY. She has some secrets in her past. Isn't she being sued by a campaign insider?

  5. Jeff,

    Bachmann has helped moved the Republican Party farther right into batshit crazy land where it is easier to defeat them at the polls.
