Ding dong! Ring the bells out!
U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann, who has a liberal legislative score of ZERO and a right wing legislative score of 83%, will not be running for re-election in 2014!
Bachmann’s erratic behavior and extremist ideology were a heavy political burden to start with, but she could not keep her wacky political coalition together after her disastrous presidential campaign, which combined delusions of grandeur with dramatic ethical lapses, such as paying an Iowa state senator in exchange for political support.
Bachmann explained her decision to withdraw from politics by trying to explain what the decision was not about. “My decision was not influenced by any concerns about my being re-elected,” she said. “This decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign.”
Okay. Sure. Michele Bachmann simply decided it was time to pursue her lifelong ambition of reading every novel by Isaac Asimov. That’s it.
