Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann ... uh wait ... lemme start over ... Swiss citizen Rep. Michele Bachmann ... um ... erm ... hold on ... Try #3 ... Native Iowan Michele Bachmann endorsed a candidate for Iowa State Senate. Yeah ... I think I have that right.
Jeff Mullen, pastor of Point of Grace Church in Waukee and Republican state Senate candidate, received the endorsement of former GOP presidential candidate Bachmann on Wednesday, according to the Des Moines Register.
The Minnesota congresswoman was frequently in Iowa last fall and winter as she campaigned for the GOP presidential nomination. She had a less-than-warm welcome during a stop in Iowa City last December. A self-described gay robot heckled the congresswoman and other locals came to protest Bachmann's positions on social issues.
And Bachmann wasn't very popular in Iowa City on caucus night, either. While the one-time Iowa caucus front-runner earned 5 percent state-wide, she only garnered about 2.5 percent of Johnson County caucus-goers' support.
Why would she do that?
Remember how Bill Prendergast always talks about the evangelical movement being America's third party? Bachmann is just trying to help out another evangelical into office.
