News Roundup for 6/1/11

Terrified cartoon character
Democrat ponders a Bachmann candidacy

-Headline of the day-
"Bachmann: Democrats Are 'Terribly Afraid Of A Michele Bachmann Candidacy.'"

"Afraid" must mean "excited" in Bachmann-speak. For truth be told, never have I awaited with such eagerness the entrance of a candidate into a presidential race that I so wanted to lose. And that eagerness stems from the fact that she could never in a million years win.

Still, Bachmann is full of Bachmania. "They're terribly afraid of a Michele Bachmann candidacy for president of the United States," she told a radio show. "Democrats see themselves with group politics quite often, they'll see that they think they should own certain minorities or ethnicities or that they should own women. That's not true."

I think she means "owns" as in "make up the majorities within these demographic groups," not as in slavery. Still, you never know.

It is Michele Bachmann, after all. (Talking Points Memo)
