If Michele Bachmann is losing her own highly Republican district right now, she has to be far less popular in the rest of the state, right?
So wouldn’t it make sense for Al Franken to tie Norm Coleman more closely to Bachmann?
As far as I know, Coleman has mildly disavowed Bachmann’s Barack Obama “anti-American” evaluation. I assume Norm still supports Michele’s re-election — perhaps Franken (or a surrogate) could say, “Norm, if you really believe in bipartisanship, shouldn’t you unendorse the most McCarthyite members of your party? That would send a real message.”
Of course, Norm could simply look at the author of “Lying Liars,” and say, “bipartisanship — that’s rich!”
But as the two recent polls indicate, independents regard Bachmann as poison, so there’s hay here even for DFLers not named Tinklenberg. Maybe mailers about the Coleman-Bachmann ticket?
