Any more radioactive and she'd have super powers

Methinks the Bachmann re-election campaign is going to need some new uniforms.

Uh oh.
Five days after Rep. Michele Bachmann went on a McCarthy-esque rant suggesting Barack Obama was unpatriotic and urging the major newspapers of the country to investigate anti-American sentiment in Congress, the national Republican political parties are running for cover.

Two sources aware of ad buys in Minnesota say that the National Republican Congressional Committee is pulling its media purchases from Bachmann's race.

...In the days following her appearance on Hardball, however, Bachmann has watched as her challenger, El Tinklenberg raised more than a million dollars off her incendiary remarks.
Looks like Bachmann's recent dip running leap into the crazy pool has so damaged her prospects that the NRCC doesn't want to waste the money to prop her up when there are other races they want to contest. While not quite a white flag, it's a pretty serious admission of just how much of an embarrassment she's become.

Which should be news to, well, no one...
