Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Mars) — or as Charles P. Pierce calls her, the Girl with the Faraway Eyes (which is pretty funny) — refused to say whether or not she’s being considered as a running mate for Mitt Romney, according to The Raw Story:
“One thing I know about Mitt Romney, he’s made excellent decisions in the past when it comes to running organizations and I have no doubt, whoever it is, that he chooses, to bring in as his V.P., it will be a highly competent person who could step in at a moments notice and assume the responsibilities of the White House,” she told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “Are you being vetted at the moment?” Morgan asked. “Well, that’s something for the campaign to answer on,” she responded. “That’s not for me to make that decision, and that announcement.”
Mitt and Michele have a lot in common: she has dual citizenship in Switzerland and he has a lot of money in their banks. I welcome more open discussion on the Romney campaign trail about FEMA camps, communists in the United States Congress, the light-bulb conspiracy, and how the Fast & Furious operation was in fact a “political program” implemented by Eric Holder to take away our Second Amendment rights. Plus, it would be great fun to see Marcus Bachmann and Marie Antoinette interact with cookie recipe competitions, etc.
