    Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    Tea party favorite and Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is feeling pressure from the political calendar to rush a decision on a White House bid and may announce her intentions as early as May, one of her top advisers said Thursday.

    Bachmann, a third-term congresswoman from Minnesota, could form a presidential exploratory committee before two televised Republican debates scheduled the first week of May, said Ed Brookover, a Bachmann adviser.

    ...

    Other Republicans familiar with Bachmann's thinking said all signs point to a White House run. They insisted on anonymity to discuss private conversations with Bachmann and her advisers.
    Now, I don't trust anonymous sources, so not going to say anything for sure yet, but lord I do hope she runs. We have not had a good group of humor candidates for either party since 2000, when the republicans had Keyes and Bauer both running.

    I think the source is correct. Jim Demint pulled out, and said he's not running. I betcha dollars to donuts he folded right after Bachmann made her announcement.

    dear Lord...just who are these people who are "pressuring" her?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I really like Alan Keyes(it's true, listening to him speak is an incredible experience, the man is a master orator and has a dry but awesome sense of humor). That does not mean he is not bat**** insane. He is, and so is Bachmann.

    Bachmann is a lot smarter than Palin, but so is a bag of hammers. Bachmann, like her or not, is a pretty decent debater.
