Michele Bachmann’s rise and fall as a contender for the Republican presidential nomination is just one of several in this crazy campaign season.
The Minnesota congresswoman’s sharp decline from previous heights in public opinion polls is not unlike those of Rick Perry, Herman Cain and, more recently (but perhaps less devastatingly), Newt Gingrich.
If Bachmann finishes last in Tuesday’s GOP caucuses in Iowa, a distinct possibility, it seems likely that she’ll have to throw in the towel.
Frankly, I’m going to miss her. Her brand of zany conservatism has been great fun and wonderful fodder for a snarky liberal blogger such as I.
