Quick! Before she disappears! #Bachmann
Wow, that was quick.
Watching Hardball yesterday, you would have thought winning the corndog eating championship was no big deal. Chris Matthews practically anointed Rick Perry the GOP nominee.
Before she disappears completely, a note about her appearance on the Sunday Shows, and particularly her assertion that being a tax lawyer is proof of her intelligence and drive, and gives her some special insight into leadership.
Yeah yeah, we get it. Helping corporate clients avoid tax liabilities is the story of your life, Congresswoman. Moving on.
Honestly, Republicans, we've all be unemployed for two years or know someone who has, and you want to talk about deregulation. Sigh.
I won't lift a finger to help Pon Raul (intentional typo), whose anti-abortion speech this past weekend transcended all reality and actually confessed to being accessory to murder of a crying baby. But he's got a legitimate beef about coming in second and being completely ignored by everybody.
I'm also disappointed but not surprised that no one has mentioned that the GOP race begins in one of the white-est places on the entire planet outside of Scandinavia.* It's a circling the wagons mentality in denial that their party is demographically doomed.
*Norway, with its horrible horrible "immigrant problem," is, by latest count, 94% Nordic. Iowa is 91% White.
