Retiring Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has no plans to go gently into that good night after she leaves office in January. Promising to spread “my voice and my thoughts as far and wide as I possibly can,” she amusingly seems to think that she has something unique to add.
As the only Republican woman to ever participate in televised presidential debates and “the only woman Republican candidate who ever won a presidential contest,” Bachmann asserted that “I occupy a unique space” in public sphere and therefore she intends to be “heavily involved in the 2016 race, in particular if Hillary Clinton is the nominee for president on the Democrat [sic] side.”
Nonetheless, Bachmann has big plans to “be in the national media,” speaking around the country, appearing on radio and writing weekly columns and perhaps even a book.
“I intend to have my voice and my thoughts as far and wide as I possibly can,” she pledged, “to bring in the perspective of the conservative movement in this upcoming race in 2016. It is the pivotal race in our lifetime and I wanna be involved.”
Of course you do. And I’m sure Fox News will be happy to let you blather incoherently about things just like they do Sarah Palin. Hey, maybe you can start your own online TV channel like she and Herman Cain did.
