Bachmann Calls it Quits

Michelle Bachmann has decided not to run for re-election in 2014.

Why isn't exactly clear. She says it has nothing to do with a fear she'll lose or the ongoing investigation into some of her aborted 2012 presidential bid finances.

Maybe she's just tired of being called bat-shit crazy.

It's probably too much to hope that we'll never hear from her again.

Bachmann broke all sorts of records for making flat out inaccurate claims. She then usually stuck to her guns despite a mountain or two of evidence that she was just plan WRONG.

She garnered a garage full of Four Pinocchio awards from the Washington Post and another garage full of "liar, liar, pants on fire" awards from Politifact.

Of course Bachmann just claimed this demonstrated the bias of the liberal media. No, Michelle, it's because REALITY tends to have a liberal bias.

I do think it's unfair to call Bachmann a liar. I don't think she was lying as much as she was simply incapable of differentiating reality from fantasy from her position in the Conservative Bubble of Delusion. I've decided to capitalize the CBD because it's becoming more and more a staple of American political dialogue.

Good-bye Michelle. Try not to let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
