Bye bye, Bachmann

Dear Editor:

The Tea Party cheerleader, aka the Queen of Rage, Rep. Michele Bachmann, rattled the tea cup by announcing that she will not be running for a fifth term as congresswoman for Minnesota’s 6th District.

Why the sudden move? If you see smoke, can fire be near? Could it be that the FBI is investigating her campaign finances? Only time can answer that question.

Let’s review what the taxpayers got from her eight years as a representative, earning $177,000 plus perks and pork per year. Michele sponsored 58 bills, but only one passed the House — a total of 37 times! Yes, you got it right, her one claim to fame was her bill to repeal Obamacare. She recently said, “The repeal issue is back on the table!”

Here are three of her famous talking points:

• Obama would be a one-term president.

• When our founding fathers drafted the Constitution, “Slavery was no more in the United States.”

• We need to investigate who in Congress is pro-American and who is anti-American.

It appears that the Tea Party brand of tea is too strong for her and these other “tea leaves”: Allen West, Joe Walsh and Jim DeMint.

Four down and more to go? Bye bye ... and good riddance to bad rubbish.
