Bachmann for Prez!

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), the doyen of the "crazy" caucus of the GOP, is considering a run for the Presidency. For those of you unfamiliar with the Minnesota Congresswoman, she's like if you took Sarah Palin, and injected a metric ton of LSD into her eyeballs.

Unfortunately, this quality makes it hard for me to know what she would bring to a primary that Sarah Palin wouldn't. And unlike Palin, who has a professional class of worshippers who have managed to persuade themselves that she's not utterly toxic, even Republicans seem to realize that Bachmann is a nutjob.

But I shouldn't be greedy. Successful primary campaign or no, I'm sure Rep. Bachmann will continue humiliating Republicans on the front pages of newspapers nationwide.
