I was sitting in my hotel room last night in Sioux City when this ad for Iowa Congressman Steve King (R-Mars) came on and I have to wonder, has there been a bigger waste of campaign funds ever spent than whatever the King camp spent on this?
“One wife, one house and one church”? Yippee! There’s my top 3 reasons to vote for someone…
Oh and speaking of tin foil hat wearing Republicans, it appears that another Republican from Mars, Michele Bachmann, is experiencing some unexpected trouble in her bid to win re-election.
Despite her national fan base and a massive war chest, Rep. Michele Bachmann may be in more danger than most suspect, with a new poll showing her lead diminished to just 2 points. Independent voters have swung against her by nearly 20 points in just two months, from a 4 percent advantage to a 15 point disadvantage. The internal poll, conducted by Democratic pollsters Greenberg Quinlan Rosner at the behest of Democrat Jim Graves’ campaign and shared with Salon, shows that Bachmann’s favorability rating has tumbled since their last survey in mid-June, and finds Graves gaining ground with independents as his name recognition grows.
Maybe, just maybe, crazy is finally going out of vogue
