Some of our readers are disputing that Michele Bachmann “retired” from running for office, but however you describe it, she’s not running for the congressional seat she has been in for several terms.

And it looks like her main competitor — whose election was

Mixed feelings.

She was right on many issues, and attracted all the right enemies.

But her primary performance was disappointing, to put it mildly. No need to rehash all that now.

I wish her well.

What goes around comes around.  Michele Bachmann hired Ed Rollins as campaign manager last spring and the first thing he did was trash Sarah Palin.

Bachmann let the Rollins’ comments hang out there for a while and then went on TV to say what good friends she was with Palin.  Bachmann supporters...

One of the conspiracy theories floating around the comment section here and elsewhere was that Michele Bachmann served as the attack dog against everyone but Romney in the hope of gaining a VP nod.

The speculation was fueled by Bachmann’s relentless and often inaccurate attacks on everyone who rose to be the lead...

This is the video of Michele Bachmann accusing Tea Party members, not just in South Carolina but “all across the country,” of taking money from Gingrich for endorsements, which I referenced in my post Friday:

You know I have a big problem with Michele Bachmann making statements which are not supported by facts and then repeating them endlessly.

Her campaign is up to much worse in South Carolina, where her local campaign manager has suggested that the Gingrich campaign has paid off Tea Party leaders for support.  Politico...

Michele Bachmann pretty much ended Tim Pawlenty’s campaign.

Bachman attacked Pawlenty relentlessly and took the Iowa straw poll, causing Pawlenty (foolishly, in hindsight) to withdraw.  In so doing, Bachmann eliminated the person who was the most viable not-Romney establishment candidate, a former Governor with a good, conservative record who appealed not only to Romney-supporting...

Taking another look at Michele Bachmann is one of the memes being pushed by people unhappy with the Newt/Romney choice in the wake of the likely departure from the race of Herman Cain.

Why does Cain dropping out make Bachmann any better than she was?

She’s still the person who built her campaign...

Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann (as well as many Mitt supporters in the media) have been distorting Newt Gingrich’s position on immigration as one favoring “amnesty.”

Via The Shark Tank, here is a video where Newt explains his immigration policy.  I believe it’s a fully acceptable and conservative immigration policy:  Secure the borders...

When I saw this Michelle Bachmann ad my first thought was, “Don’t go there, Michele, this will not help you.”  But on second thought, why not?

I have been in favor of niceness so far, but I wondering whether it’s gone on long enough.  Why shouldn’t the candidates face...

Yes, Michele you should have done a Google search before hiring Ed Rollins (NYT via NRO via HotAir):

She said critical comments Mr. Rollins made to reporters after stepping aside were dismaying.

“When it comes to personnel issues, I act professionally and respectful of former employees,” she said. “I just assume that’s a...

Michele Bachmann is doubling down on Ed Rollins, even though health concerns (allegedly) are the reason he will not run her campaign on a day-to-day basis:

All this talk about Rick Perry being too much like Dubya has infiltrated the brain of the person who tweets for The Hill.

The Daily Caller is running a report that Michele Bachmann suffers from frequent severe migraines and is heavily medicated, rendering her incapacitated for days at a time.  The sourcing is entirely from anonymous former aides. 

I don’t know if the story is true, or even if true in some aspects, is overblown. ...
