“New Poll Shows Graves in a Statistical Tie with Bachmann”

Those are the headlines we’re seeing across the country. The latest poll shows that Michele Bachmann has fallen well below 50% and we are within just five points, 43-48.

Voters got to see Rep. Bachmann’s true colors when she ran for president – and the more they saw, the less they liked. Her extreme ideology has crippled Washington, and working families have paid the price.

'MY JOB IS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE' ~ Huffington Post front page headline today.


Seemingly, Mitt's only apprehension regarding the comments he made, was that they were not elegantly stated.

Mitt believes - "corporations are people" and actual people are not worthy of concern. Is there an elegant way to communicate these beliefs?

I am officially requesting Romney's "long form" birth certificate, prior to the election.

Who's in?

(This, in response to Rmoney's continued absurdity re: not being asked for his birth certificate.)

I also want his college transcripts. And, those pesky tax returns.
