After eight years in office, Michele Bachmann is retiring from Congress:
A few questions for the audience:
Who Is Emanuelle Goldstein?: Extremists like the MNDFL has become need enemies. The Minnesota Left will need to invent a new bete noir, someone on which to focus all their insecurity and hatred, to keep them motivated. Bachmann has served this role for over a decade and a half, between her Congressional, State Senate and educational organizing careers. Bachmann bedeviled the local left by seeming to thrive on their hatred, turning it back on them with a wink and a smile and a dismissive quip. So who does the MNDFL’s depraved, insane fringe pick as their new Demon?
Next?: The Sixth is one of the few districts in the state with a deep bench of solid, polished GOP contenders. Who should run to replace Michele?
Dead Air?: With Michele Bachmann out of public life, what will Jack Tomczak talk about?
(I’m a kidder. I kid. I love Jack and Ben’s show. But still…)
Tarry Not: Does Tarryl Clark already have her U-Haul loaded up, or what?
