Michele Bachmann Suspending Campaign

The National Journal reports that Bachmann, who has scheduled a press conference for 11am ET this morning, is out of the race:

Red_bachmannRep. Michele Bachmann is suspending her presidential campaign, said a senior Republican official with direct knowledge of the lawmaker’s plans. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Minnesota lawmaker, a favorite of the tea party wing of the party and a harsh critic of President Obama, realized after her sixth-place finish in Iowa’s caucuses that “there was no viable way forward.” By suspending her campaign, Bachmann is effectively dropping out.

    But God told her to run ???
    (not mocking God, But mocking Michele). She is in good company with the king of Spain that had the Armada built and the Popes that started Crusades. Love the old line, When you talk to God it is called prayer, When God talks to you it is called schizophrenia.
    Too Bad, So Sad.

    You are the weakest link. Goodbye.

    Don’t let the door hit you where the dog should have bit you.

    Here’s your broom, what’s your hurry?

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    I said GOOD DAY, ma’am.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    I’ve really never disliked someone more: for her intolerance, her ignorance, her sense of entitlement, her inability to answer the simplest question.

    May God NOT have mercy on her (very spotted) soul!
