I just discovered this and it combines my favorite new Saturday Night Live character with one of the craziest politicians I loathe. I just wanted to share it all with you.
I was recently accepted into the Knowledge Democrats group and I'm proud to be a part of it. I was going through some older diaries and I stumbled upon this diary about Bachmann's last congressional opponent, Jim Graves (D. MN):
After Graves dropped out, pipsorcle said it best:
Well said indeed. Hope you enjoyed the late night laugh. Have a good night and check out the Knowledge Democrats group, it's pretty cool:it's clear Jim Graves really ran in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District race mainly because of Michelle Bachmann. In that aspect, because Graves, a successful business leader himself, ran a campaign last year that almost defeated Bachmann and brought more votes into Democratic territory than before, there's been more pressure on her than ever before.
So if you really think about it, Jim Graves did defeat Michelle Bachmann. He just didn't do it in November 2012.
