Her choice of Mr. “Walking Around Money” as her political consultant was great too -

The only thing starting to make sense is why Hannity is calling this “The Silly Season”.

There are some psychoactive substances in the water in Iowa.

At the same time, Bachmann's super PAC abandons her too:

Personally I think Ron Paul is just a stalking horse for the GOP. They feign shock and outrage but do all they can to keep people concentrating on him for now. They know full well that he’ll get eaten alive in a head to head fight with virtually any other candidate.

Anyone who does anything that does not help Newt Gingrich is obviously a Romney plant. Anyone who chooses to support a conservative candidate instead of supporting Newt is a Romney plant. Anyone who does not revel in the glory years of the Clinton Administration, both during and after Newt's stint as Speaker, is a Romney plant. And anyone who points out any truth about Newt Gingrich is obviously a Romney plant.

Are we clear?

This is why the winner of Iowa doesn't generally go on to be the nominee. Iowa's only right about 20 or 30% of the time.

Apparently Michele’s internal polling indicates she will finish last or next to last. I never thought she was a serious candidate to begin with. I hope she will continue to work for the Tea Party in the Congress, or maybe someday the Senate.

Michelle has run the stick the knife in campaign from the beginning.

How many times has she hollered et tu because of it?

What does any of this have to do with Michelle Bachmann?

A crackpot who had worked for her leaves to reveal his inner Paulian; and a PAC which had supported her no longer does.

Why do either of these things make Bachmann a worse candidate from a policy perspective?

This is just further evidence that these second tier candidates are not going to make it. They only serve to keep the Not Romney’s fractured.

I know some won’t like it, but that goes for Rick Perry too (who I actually like). Right now he’s competing with Bachmann for 5th in Iowa. Down state he barely registers. They say he had big bank at one time. Does he still today? He’s been spending big in Iowa. Perry’s last stand may come on Jan 3rd - especially if he performs as he is currently polling.

It doesn't. It raises questions about organization, viability, leadership, etc. You know, some Bachmann folks might want to understand that there is more to life than just "policy."

Ah, the old ‘somebody did somebody wrong’ thingie. At lease he didn’t drool on her.
Michelle can dish it out but sometimes I still feel sorry for her, lol.

I should have copy and pasted the article so others don’t have to go there.

Candidates, who don’t have a chance, typically aren’t running for the actual position. They are usually running to create interest for themselves so they get a better deal in the House or Senate or wherever they do end up running.

What I don't understand is why Bachmann hasn't caught on. I think she is great. She is anti abortion, anti illegals, anti tax and for strong military. She is a woman for goodness sakes, think of the womens vote she will draw in.

I really don't understand it. I thought she was very well spoken, looked good, spoke well and has been a good person in her personal life, she would be one tough girl to beat in the general.

It is looking more and more that Mitt is out foxing people who should have been able to do better. If Mitt wins the nomination I hope he will at least pull Michelle Bachmann into his close circle of advisors. She has the right answer for nearly any question. She sure would have been great against Hitlary.

So much for any credibility that Kent Sorenson had. He was the one starting unfounded rumors about Cain.

Selling one’s self to the highest bidder. There is term for that.

Substantiating a bad rumor using the blatherings of a Ron Paul supporter isn’t very wise.

I haven’t seen many women that were enthralled with Bachmann. Some were a little queasy.

There is something fishy here. Nobody who would honestly and ethically work for a conservative like her could so easily turn traitor and endorse that racist nutcase unless there is much more to the story.

Could be that she’s a catty little b___h.
Or that she speaks like a droning kindergarten teacher.
Or that she has spent more time attacking Republicans than Obama.
Or that she stretches the truth.
Or that she tries to make someone with a 98.5% pro life record look pro choice.
Or that she’s just a short term congresswoman running for Pres.
Or that she tried to make Rick Perry look like Joseph Mengele.
Or that she has that deer in the headlights expression.

And so on....

Did you say "honestly and ethically?" That's presenting facts not in evidence.

Boy, you are really big into conspiracy theories tonight. I think both Newt and Mitt suck, so by your reasoning, I am working to support Romney.

I hate to burst your bubble, but your boy Newt is rapidly moving toward second-tier status.
