Palin, Bachmann Taking GOP Race by Storm

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are taking the Republican presidential race by storm — even though neither has formally announced they will run.

The former Alaska governor and the Minnesota congresswoman, who insist they are friends not rivals, are showing all the signs that they will provide GOP voters with their first genuine opportunity to vote for a female in the White House in 12 years.

Each has the money, the backing, and the name recognition to go the distance against the men. And, as GOP Pollster Kellyanne Conway points out, their “groomed attractiveness” is also a major plus.

Why would you choose a 2-term backbencher Congresswoman over someone who has been a small businesswoman, Mayor, Governor, Regulator, and Vice-Presidential nominee, and who has written two best-sellers and has revitalized the GOP?

Dude, Bachmann is a joke. She is actually more gaffe-prone than Palin and is working for the establishment.

I will not support Bachmann if she somehow in Hell wins the GOP nomination.

You really believe the leftist media will leave Bachmann alone? They will chew her up and spit her out. She will wilt under the liberal media pressure. She can’t handle it.

Not my fault this was posted twice. When I hit the post button, it stalled, so I hit it again, not knowing it would post twice. Sorry about that.
