In Memoriam: Michele Bachmann’s Presidential Campaign


Onetime Iowa straw poll favorite Michele Bachmann cut short her presidential hopes this morning after a dismal showing during last night’s Iowa caucuses, saying, “The people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice,” and that voice said something like, “We’re just not that into you.” Bachmann and her campaign antics will surely be missed. Whether she’s inadvertently comparing herself to a psychotic clown serial killer, or telling adorable stories of her husband buying doggie sunglasses instead of standing by her on the stump, Bachmann has offered up plenty of comedic fodder during her six-ish months in the race. To mark Bachmann’s exit, Intel has put together a video of greatest hits of sorts from the candidate’s run. At least this “hombre-ette” made it through Iowa, unlike some people.
