On Wednesday, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., released a video announcing she is not running for re-election. Bachmann rejected the notion that she is bowing out to avoid electoral defeat, as she said she expects the "mainstream liberal media to put a detrimental spin on" her decision not to seek a fifth term.
That's not a tall order. As Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler noted, given Bachmann's many gaffes, the fact checking trade may have to hold a national day of mourning.
Dole endured his share of ridicule after he lost -- especially when he became a spokesman for the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra. Later, he learned the way to mainstream media redemption. Michele Bachmann, take note. Say the Republicans aren't what they used to be. Blame them for all that is wrong in Washington. Go easy on the party that controls the Senate and the White House. That's how Republican politicians turn into saints.
