Oh Bachman give it up! Your the same as the rest of the GOP only maybe more in a FOG than most. You speak on these cable shows and then usually deny what you say. You have no credability. Rumer has it you plan on being on the ticket 2012 Palin/Bachman! Ya right. Grab for your bible and see what it says about liars. Deny your lies to the womens leagues again also! Compulsive liars have a hard time distinguishing truth, lies and facts. How you were re elected is still beyond belief!

Nice job Strib never let us down in your one sided reporting. Or did you not want to report on Keith Ellison's little earmark? $3,000,000 to Phygen Inc. for Plasma Sterilizer. How about both sides Ellison's earmark hasn't even been reported on.

I'd throw in Oberstar's earmarks but there is a word limit in these things.

Sexism in the media. MSM wants Bachmann (and Governor Palin) to be home, barefoot and pregnent.

Did she take the earmarks before or after she signed the pledge?
