Is Maggie serious?
For a time, [Michele Bachmann] looked like the real deal — a candidate who would be a viable conservative alternative to Mitt Romney....
Instead, her campaign slowly disintegrated. There was a bitter split with a coterie of top advisers, a slew of campaign trail missteps and claims of unfair treatment. Contributions dried up and the candidate herself never quite developed a message.
Yes, who could have ever predicted Bachmann's calamities -- given merely that this dreadful flake of a congresswoman once, on national television, casually accused her colleagues of 'anti-Americanism,' repeatedly presented 'Obamacare' as America's greatest menace, lost congressional staffers like car keys, and only excelled in early campaign debates when she chanted, "Obama ... is ... a ... one ... term ... president!"
Geez, the clues to her demise, so infernally well hidden.
