GOP Abandoning Loony Michele Bachmann
Nutty baby farmer and commie hunter Michele Bachmann just blabbed her way out of GOP ad buys in Minnesota!
Bachmann went on Hardball last week and called everybody a liberal Marxist black anti-American, which for some reason was shocking. (This is how she talks every day.) But whatever the reason Friday's tirade got noticed, the end result was a million dollars in campaign contributions for her Democratic opponent, Elvish Whistlepeep, who will probably win her House seat now, ha ha, although nobody knows for sure because it is apparently very difficult to do a quick poll in Minnesota's 6th District.
Anyway, according to Sam Stein at the Huffington Post, the National Republican Congressional Committee has yanked its media buying in Michelle's district! They've washed their hands of Batshit Bachmann!
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. The race had become closer in recent days -- the NRCC had transferred funds from Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-03) to Bachmann a little over a week ago.
Oh, and we took this picture at the Republican convention last month, in St. Paul, and have been waiting for the Perfect Time to use it on Wonkette.
