You know what they say about people who keep doing the same thing expecting different results...her donors fit right in with Mickie.

Bachmann would end SS these elderly people are being duped by Shelley! Good thing she doesn't have a chance in the world to win!

Of course they're repeat donors! Only the most wack-job, kool-aid drinking, reactionaries who believe in Michelle's bigoted and squalid crusade would give her money. They're just like the last Quadaffi hold outs in Libya hiding in the sewer who will be brought to justice by the 99% who believe in democracy.

I personally want to thank Cindy Boyd, Edward Anderson and Don Covert for keeping the carnival going!

These poor saps who were listed in this story are going to start being bombarded by people like Mac Hammond, Todd Koontz, Mike Murdock and all the other "prosperity gospel" hucksters that are on BET late Sunday nights selling stuff like their "miracle spring water." It would probably have been more responsible of the Strib not to identify them. It just sets them up to be victimized further. At least Bachmann's begging will stop pretty soon. They will be hounded by the fake Christians forever, I'm afraid.

Bachmann spent $2.5 million to collect $4.1 million, that means 61 cents of every dollar collected went to fund raising activities. This level of fund raising percentage compares to what a ripoff charity would spend. Bachmann also heavily solicits from elderly repeat givers, just like the preying activity of those organizations.

"I pray about everything, and God showed me that I needed to give her some money to help her," Boyd said. The Christian right needs to go back and re-read Matthew and The Revelation. The Bible teaches against the politics of man.

Repeating the same mistake is never good. Learn from your mistakes and recognize a candidate who has zero future and nothing to run on of substance. Save your money or give it to the charity of your choice where it can do some good.
