UUUGGGHHH!!!!

Fuck this woman! I just listened to her speech today, it was full of false facts and bad logic, but she totally made it sound reasonable and realistic.

If she just sounded crazy, I'd be fine, but she doesn't and honestly I'm scared shitless she might make it.
PS: Where do you get your news?

From the left, and the right.
I read it all on my iPad, but I prefer newspapers.

Of course she mentions no actual sources.

Realistically, I don't think Bachmann stands a chance; but then again, when I'm alone in the dark, I share your fears.

Perry getting into the Race complicates things for Bachmann, because they are both vying for the same crowd, and he is arguably the better politician. How this affects Romney is an unknown at the moment. Should be interesting.

I think even with Perry out of the mix, Bachmann for President is a huge gamble for the GOP. I'm predicting and also fearing a Perry/Bachmann ticket. Sadly, I think voters really care about the Mormon thing, which means Romney and Huntsman are out.

I think the only voters that care about this are the evangelicals that make of the base of Perry/Bachmann's crowd. A few people I've run into don't really get a hoot about Romney being a Mormon.

Huntsman is definitely out, sadly. He's just too much of an unknown name. The GOP primary is going to be between Perry/Bachmann/Romney at some point down the road.

It is such a shame that Jon Huntsman couldn't gain any traction because he was the only member of the GOP field that didn't make me shake my head in disgust. He was rational, moderate and unwilling to cater to the far right factions of the party. Which I suppose explains why his campaign couldn't get anywhere.

Everytime Michelle Bachman opens her mouth rational women everywhere roll their eyes in unison. I have a hard time believing that GOP voters will vote for her in the primary states that truly matter; New York, Pennsylvania, California and Florida. Her socially conservative rhetoric just doesn't resonate there.

In the end I am hoping she does pull of the nomination because that Obama vs Bachman would be such a ridiculously fun race to watch.

I was all about Huntsman, too. Okay, so I wouldn't vote for him because I'm not voting GOP as long as the Tea Party is still in play, but he seemed to be the only guy who wasn't trying to make a name for himself as "Mr./Mrs. Anti-Obama and Everything He Stands For". Also, he likes Dream Theater. So maybe that doesn't give him politician cred, but he gets cred for it all the same.

I think Bachmann would create a train-wreck campaign, much like Palin did. Realistically, I think the only reason she'd even be backed by the RNC is because a) she's a Tea Party favorite and b) Republicans still think that women are sore about Clinton and are willing to vote in any woman (even one that believes that abortions are the kind of casual stop you'd make on your way to Starbucks in the morning) over a man.

But yes, I agree on SUPER FUN TO WATCH.

Here's the thing about Huntsman, Obama himself knew that Huntsman was a rising star and great potential candidate for 2012.

That's why Obama made him Ambassador to China in 2009. To get him out of the country and out of the spotlight. It's not like Huntsman could turn the appointment down. When the President makes you an Ambassador, you fucking GO.

Is it true, though? Was Hillary's loss Sarah Palin's gain, in terms of voters? I don't know how it shook out during the election, but personally, I didn't feel so jilted about Hillary that I saw Palin as a suitable subsitute. I mean, outside of anatomy, they're two completely different politicians. Then again, I'm not a boomer.

I find it hard to believe that Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin shared the same voter base. While they are both women their political ideologies couldn't be more different and the types of women who support them are on opposite sides of the spectrum.

Women don't vote for female candidates because they share a common gender they vote for female candidates because these candidates are more believable when they speak of ideas and beliefs that the voter themselves value.

I think.....who really knows why anyone votes for anyone else.

I really doubt many voters actually know where a candidate stands on the issues. I also suspect that the simple fact that it's a women running will bring out many women who would not otherwise vote, and don't even pay ettention to politics.

I imagine the same was undoubtedly true for Obama as a black man.

What percentage of voters this is, and how much it actually influences an election, I don't know.

I do feel like I remember seeing poll data on how many Hillary supporters moved on to Palin, and the numbers were scary.
PS: Honestly I think campaigns are won and lost on branding. Having a presidential name and looking the part is probably the most important factor.

Usually by the time we get to the general election they're weeded out, but bad names never win. President Kerry does not roll off the tongue too well, let alone President Nader.

Santorum never stood a chance.
PS: Also, I can't wait to see Bachman in a debate.

As one news anchor put it, he'd hate to play pokwer with Obama, given the guy went to the White House Press Dinner and started making jokes at Trump's expense just hours after issuing the order to kill bin Laden. How he kept a straight face, I don't know. But if he goes up against Bachmann would be incredibly lop-sided. Perry will make for a much stronger candidate against Obama, and Romney even stronger still because he's more to the middle. Although he's not in the race nor even dreaming of it, Boehner would be the strongest contender in a debate with Obama.

FEAR THE COMMIES.

You can't make this shit up.

"What people recognize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward," Bachmann said on Jay Sekulow's radio show.

My guess? She saw Red Dawn on cable and mistook it for Fox News.

PS: Michelle Bachmann: on the cutting edge of Cold War politics!
