Michele Bachmann Will not Run for Another Term

The announcement by Michele Bachmann that she will not be seeking re-election in 2014 has provided columnists and bloggers a fine opportunity to re-cap some of her greatest hits, and to reiterate for what must feel like the eleventy-billionth time that there is something about her that is not unlike the phosphate-rich material coating the floor of certain flying rodent-inhabited caverns. It can be fun to look at people like Michele Bachmann and wonder just how the hell they got these odd ideas, or why they are such credulous fuckwits. Deep down, however, I can't entirely laugh.

She was not only elected, but re-elected by her district, and even ran in a somewhat-serious 2012 GOP primary bid. And there were people who helped her along the way, because they believed in her. Whether she's intimating that inner-tube people will be fleeing the coasts of an America that doesn't even use dollars for currency anymore, or declaring that a health care plan designed in part by the conservative Heritage think tank is the peak of socialism, she apparently did not sound too crazy to be credible to a not-inconsiderable number of supporters.  And, her canpaign-fund investigation aside, there is still some trouble she can stir as a semi-coherent commentator.

I guess what I'm saying is, her derp is marching on....
