Sharpton: The Race Card is Not the Way to Run for President

Can we quote you Al? RCP video.

The MSNBC guy: "His amazing academic record at Harvard". What? We really have no idea. He didn't write anything, despite being on Law Review.

Barack's an empty suit.

Bachmann's Profile Rising

The MSM piece calls her "polarizing" but calls the rest of the GOP field "bland". New Hampshire voters are "tax-phobic". Oh, yeah, we're all nuts, frothing at the mouth if we use colorful language.

Even so, an interesting addition to her background in this Trib/LA Times story:
A tax lawyer who ousted a more moderate Republican to win election to the Minnesota Senate in 2000, she attributes her combative spirit to growing up as the only girl in a family of boys. One brother became a popular TV weatherman in Des Moines; another is on the Yale School of Medicine faculty.
Yes, Michele Bachmann is a viable candidate.
We can't afford establishment "geniuses" who have spent us into penury any more.

Yes, Michele Bachmann is a viable candidate

Even the left-leaning New Republic can see that. (Nice try making her look crazed with the photo, but she's Minnesota Nice:), not to mention a savvy former tax attorney) Unlike some TEA party darlings she's had to fight to win her congressional seat, and in Minnesota, a state which mostly goes blue nationally.

Maybe not in 2012, though. If she beats Pawlenty in the Iowa primaries, Minnesota may come through for her in the fall for the presidency. That Midwest, Mississippi River corridor is critical:)
