    Michele Bachman is fading fast, with 2% in New Hampshire and only 10% in Iowa (evidently she can’t buy the votes like she could in the Iowa August straw poll, where you needed a $20 ticket in order to participate – she reportedly purchased 5000 tickets which she gave away and received 4200 votes; as Stephen Colbert pointed out she garnered an impressive 80% of the votes she bought and paid for in the straw poll.)

    Possibly Congressman Bachman will fall out of the race prior to the Iowa caucuses? Probably not, as she loves the sound of her own shrill voice and pretty picture on FOXNews, promoting conspiracy theories and destruction of the public trough that she has spent her life feeding at.
