Michelle Bachmann takes a break, someone pitches in

It is difficult to be insane 365 days a year. Occasionally one has to sit back and commune quietly for a day and ask God, with whom you think you have a personal relationship, to smite ACORN. Apparently this is what Michelle Bachmann was doing yesterday because somebody stepped up in the Minnesota GOP to grab the mantle of crazy for just one day.

As an Iowan, I would ask someone to step up and let Steve King take a day off once in a while.

Anyhoo, I give you John Kline's thoughts, to use the term liberally (he hates that), on Franken v. Coleman:

I would like to see the Minnesota Supreme Court say there isn’t a winner here. There is not a winner. We cannot declare a winner...

But this is truly unique. I don’t know that anybody knows of anything like this anywhere in the country, ever, where you had a race this close and no reasonable way to resolve it.

I'm sure John Kline said the same thing about Bush v. Gore. Oh wait, that race had a reasonable way to resolve available, but the Supreme Court decided against that.

-- Good thing, according to Kline, Bush v. Gore never happened. Whew.
