Two More Years

Michele Bachmann, the bete noir of the entire regional Bachmann-deranged left, freshly retired from the presidential campaign trail, has announced she’s going to go for term number four.

Bachmann declared her plans in an interview with The Associated Press. The Republican congresswoman had been mum on her plans since folding her presidential campaign after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses earlier this month.

“I’m looking forward to coming back and bringing a strong, powerful voice to Washington, D.C.,” Bachmann said.

This is a very good thing.  While there’s been speculation that Bachmann could find herself lumped into a district with Betty McCollum (DFL – La La Land), the judges who are running the redistricting process pretty soundly rejected the DFL reasoning that’d have led to such a map.  We’re over a month away from seeing our new districts – but the Sixth looks likely to remain solidly conservative.  If reason prevails in the redistricting process, I suspect Bachmann will win by something close to ten points…

…which will send her back to DC a much more powerful legislator, a legitimate leader in a GOP caucus that seems likely at this remove to be larger and more conservative. than the current one.

Which is good for the Sixth and for Minnesota – and for conservatism and, ergo, America.

It’ll also leave the impotent shriekers of the regional Bachmann Derangement industry with something to spend their boundless, manic energy on – which makes for great entertainment for conservative bloggers, and not much more.

Anyway – good call, Rep. Bachmann.  Glad to see you back in the race.

  1. Phew! That was too close for me (us in the sixth) back last summer when she was leading. Now she’s back. Yessss! A vote in Congress I can count on.

    Won’t she soon have enough seniority for a committee chairmanship? Vice-chairman?

    Maybe a run at Dayton in a couple of years?

  2. I think that sounds great too, Kermit, but if Bachmann gets some of that executive experience under her belt… well, that’s not such a bad thing either.

  3. I’m very happy she’s going to run and surely win. She hammered the wretched Tarryl Clark last time around, I’m just praying that Chip Cravaack can repeat the same results for the carpetbagger! I’m most concerned about who’ll take on and beat A-Klo, she’s got to go!!

  4. Right now we aren’t even sure if Michele will be in the Sixth District. She might get drawn out and pitted against Klein. Michele wins in the Sixth not sure if she pulls it off in Kleins district.

    Klein is the guy we should run against AK. Stellar record, conservative, unassailable, and won’t make the mistake of appearing on Hardball.

  5. I don’t think she could win a state wide race (gov or senate). She’s been poisoned by the media as badly as Palin and O’Donnell have been. She’d be a lightning rod of anti-conservative hate. If she had run for gov in 2010 instead of Emmer, I bet the outcome would have been closer to 50%/25%/25% not 43.6%/43.2%/11.9%

  6. As much as it sucks to say this, she needs to stay in a safe conservative district where she can continue to push/pull the GOP to the right.
