Rep. Bachmann Makes 1st Post-Race Minn. Appearance

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — For the first time since leaving the White House race, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is appearing at a public event in Minnesota.

The congresswoman was scheduled Sunday to take part in an anti-abortion rally at the Minnesota Capitol. The annual event by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life typically draws thousands; it’s held on the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

Bachmann has had few public events in Minnesota in the past half-year, when her focus was on a GOP presidential campaign. She dropped out of the race after finishing sixth in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses in early January.

Bachmann hasn’t announced whether she’ll campaign for a fourth congressional term representing suburbs north and east of the Twin Cities.

    Drat! Censored!

    The snakes must have kicked her out into the cold cruel world from her place under the rock.

    Now CCO will be focusing on her again and I thought the station might do some actual news.

    Dang. Six more weeks of winter if she sees her shadow.

    Wait, she’s a representative on this state, and just NOW makes an appearance in MN?? How many weeks has it been? If the 6th doesn’t wake up…………………

  • markH

    I’d like to ask Bachmann how she accounts for her claim that “God told me to run” for President and yet she had to drop out due to lack of support. That was an enormous claim and now she’s left looking like a fraud.

  • Gay Obsessed Party

    Ah Michele is back and looking HOT as ever. Hey Michele, since your God allows adultery (see the Amy Koch footnote) but not same gender orientation, do you think we could meet behind the Capitol steps and have a go around? We could pray the gay away as we make our lovechild that I know you won’t abort.
