    FOX NEWS: "Bachmann Surging in the Polls Ahead of Campaign Kickoff"

    Rep. Michele Bachmann has rolled out her presidential campaign with all the flare and flirtation of a seasoned boxing promoter.

    First, she stole her opponents' thunder by using a debate stage earlier this month to announce she filed her 2012 papers. Then, she held off on formally announcing that bid for another two weeks -- the formal kickoff is set for Monday in Iowa. The evening before the announcement, Bachmann is planning an informal meet-and-greet in Waterloo. And the week following the announcement will be spent touring early primary states.

    The candidate is no doubt making up for lost time, having given her opponents a wide opening to build their operations in key states by waiting so long to make the presidential plunge. But polling conducted since she revealed her intentions at the debate in mid-June suggest she's doing something right.

    the ridiculousness drips from every paragraph... "with all the flare and flirtation of a seasoned boxing promoter?"

    "But polling conducted since she revealed her intentions at the debate in mid-June suggest she's doing something right..." yeah, right. SOMETHING. that - fox news cannot explain to you, but they do want you to believe.

    keep up the assault. take down the liars.

      i wonder what else is being buried in the news cycle by miss ridiculous 2, the sequel... our own nuclear plants/facilities in danger from unprecidented flooding and wildfires, etc etc... right in the heartland.
