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:

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.

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:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
