Grrrr... Wouldn't it be great from this point forward if all the microphones in the world stopped working before this person stepped up to speak somewhere? I never really listened to her talk until in the last few hours I was watching some past videos of her on YouTube. She is NOT very smart. She, unfortunately, like a lot of so-called Christians I've met, is a horrible listener but a big talker. Talk, talk, talk. She's got the slick look and talk. Many people have shallow value systems and are really taken in by her looks. Let's face it, people. Am I the only one that sees this? Our society is taken with beauty and charm. Okay, enough rambling.

Umm, she watched the results from the Hilton in BLOOMINGTON? Oy. There are NO hotels in the 6th district for her to support? (And let's not forget that she doesn't even LIVE in the 6th anymore...)

Shelly built a bridge for Wisconsin, calls Iowa her "home", missed over 90% of the Congressional votes as a representative for Mn....makes you wonder what really makes the people of the 6th District tick.

She actually may be doing some good. I, like many others, will NEVER vote Republican while Ms Bachmann is supported by that Party. Not for Congress, not for dog catcher.

Not close enough! I just hope that her dismal showing will humble her a bit; but I doubt it.

I am hoping that her narrow victory will make her pause to reflect that she may need to organize her staff. May I suggest a fact checker? The rampant foot in mouth speeches are embarrassing to the people of the Minnesota as we all are wearing egg every time she spouts some outrageous statement that she makes up off the cuff.

The slim victory shows nothing except the power of the press. Half the people that dislike her don't know why. She says this, or she says that. Put the other side to the same scrutiny and see what you come up with.

She outspent Graves 12-1 or thereabouts and still barely won her election. What was that again about too much Democratic spending?

Un subtantiated wild accusations, 90% missed votes, utter failure to do anything while in office, and complaining about gov't spending while living off it her entire adult life. The other side is , she's a republican.
