Michele Bachmann is my home-girl. has lived in a nearby town for years, represented a nearby community in the Minnesota State Senate. I had one of her kids in my class at the U. And she’s the US Congressperson for the district that is just a few short blocks from where I live now .
In many ways, therefore, she has been a part of my life for a long time. And, now that Michele is officially running for President of the United States of America, I thought I’d repost some of the material on this blog written about her or her activities.
Instead of producing a new copy of each post, I’ll group them into a smaller number of posts for your convenience. This is the first one.

Bachmann’s Town Hall: Eyewitness account
You know, I think we’ve done a lot of good stuff at Quiche Moraine, but this post by Mike Huabrich is a step beyond and above what we’ve managed so far. Mike visited the recent town hall meeting held by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and provides us with reporting and commentary. Have a look

Bachmann truly goes off the deep end. Even more than she was.
Rep. Michele Bachmann will be headlining a fundraiser in November for controversial ministry You Can Run But You Cannot Hide (YCRBYCH).
Based in Annandale, Minn., the group has made a name for itself as an anti-drug Christian punk rock band that organizes motivational student assemblies to bring Christ to public schools. But over the last several years, parents and school administrators have complained that the ministry misrepresents itself, claiming that the group is not transparent about its Christian mission.
This is actually a fairly common problem in public schools. Groups represent themselves one way and end up spreading the word of jeebus once they get all the kids together in the auditorium. One motivational speaker that I know of has a totally christian mission theme, but promises to do no religious stuff whatsoever in the school. And he keeps his promise. but he also publicizes his web site heavily and guess what….
Why does this story remind me of this movie?
That’s all for now. There’s more coming, though, so don’t you worry!
