  •  And how much power will the Republican (2+ / 0-)

    establishment have, in the next GOP-led congress?

    A lot? A little? The same? Will the Republican establishment in Congress remain powerful enough to keep her out of power? What do you think, what's you're prediction?

    I have to ask: did you actually read the diary? These points you're raising (about her pose as bi-partisan, about how she'll remain marginal in Congress because of the GOP establishment despises her) were already addressed up there in the diary.

    The prediction is that the "establishment" GOP will be much less powerful in Congress after the election. (And thus it follows that resistance to Bachmann in a position of real power will diminish.)

    If that's right, your point about her being "a joke to the Republican establishment" becomes irrelevant.

    Are you saying that the establishment wing of Republican in Congress will retain their control of party appointments, after the election? If so: what are you basing that opinion on?
