Michele Bachmann: I'm Not Running Again for Congress in 2014

Michele Bachmann posted a nearly nine minute video announcing that she will not be running for re-election from Congress. It apparently has nothing to do with the ethics probe of her 2012 presidential election campaign nor does it have anything to do with concerns that she might get defeated in her next campaign, but instead is due to her desire to avoid becoming a career politician. But she is open to future presidential campaigns, should the Spirit move her. The video really goes on and on, but more power to her. You can watch it here:

Here are a few of my favorite Bachmann-themed blog posts from the never-ending 2012 presidential campaign:

* Minnesota Congresswoman Bachmann declares that she is a proud "Iowegian" (i.e., she's "an Iowans and 100% Norwegian").

* Bachmann wins the August 2011 Iowa State Fair Corn Poll.

* Bachmann wins 2nd prize in the 2012 Hamburg Inn Coffee Bean Caucus.

* Bachmann eats at Iowa City's Bluebird Diner and plots with a young child against zombies and pirates.
