Barely literate Bachmann shopping book, likely to command "generous advance"
Michele Bachmann has never been known as a great wit or wordsmith, but in a move sure to anger starving authors everywhere, she is shopping a book, according to Ben Smith of Politico.
Bachmann ventured to New York to meet with her agent to make arrangements for what is sure to be a thoroughly spell-checked story.
Bachmann will be in New York this week meeting with publishers with her agent, Alex Hoyt, who also represents the Catholic conservative Deal Hudson among other authors. (That makes Bachmann a real political outsider: She, unlike unlike everyone from Sarah Palin to Barack Obama, isn't represented by Bob Barnett.) A rising conservative star with access to the conservative movement's powerful distribution channels, she'd likely command a generous advance.
Not only is Bachmann fame-hungry, but she's also looking to cash in on her high national profile.
