Best. Wednesday. Ever.

As Rebecca at Wonkette points out:


It takes a big woman to admit both her poor electoral chances and the investigation into all her crimes, in the first minute and a half of her speech announcing her upcoming retirement, or else it takes an amateurish speechwriter who isn’t really aware of stuff like “not bringing up poor electoral chances and the investigation into all her crimes in the first minute and a half of a retirement speech.” Six of one, and cetera!

We don’t care why she is retiring. We will sort of miss Marcus, though. If you click the  Wonkette link above, Rebecca has a nice little round up of some of Michele Bachmann’s greatest hits while in office.

And, of course, don’t forget about Truth Wins Out’s undercover operation that proved Marcus Bachmann’s counseling center practiced reparative therapy.
