Current Event Cat of the Day: Michele Bachmann

Current Event Cat - Michele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) announced she is leaving Congress, a decision which has “nothing” to do with the ongoing ethics investigation regarding alleged misconduct during her failed attempt to win the 2012 Republican presidential primary. I repeat, nothing.

Accompanied by some distracting theme music, Michele Bachmann announced early Wednesday morning in a YouTube video on her campaign Web site that she would not be running for reelection to the House of Representatives in 2014. YouTube videos are apparently the new medium for campaign announcements (see: Weiner for Mayor).

Bachmann was also quick to insist that her stepping down had “nothing” to do with the fear of not being reelected. In 2012 she won a very narrow victory against Jim Graves, who has already announced he is running in 2014.

“Be assured: My decision was not in any way influenced by any concerns about my being reelected to Congress,” Bachmann said. “I have every confidence that if I ran, I would again defeat the individual who I defeated last year, who recently announced he is once again running.”

“And rest assured, this decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign or my former presidential staff. It was clearly understood that compliance with all rules and regulations was an absolute necessity for my presidential campaign.”

Don’t worry – she also insists her passion for America will remain! Phew!!! And of course it wouldn’t be a Michele Bachmann YouTube video if she didn’t take a jab at the Liberal mainstream media and Obamacare.
