House Republicans worried about Crazy Michele Bachmann
It was only a matter of time: House Republicans are starting to worry Michele Bachmann's lunacy may be a liability.
After a summer of birthers, deathers, and tenthers capped with Joe Wilson's obnoxious outburst, Republicans are finally starting to fret that they'll be viewed as the Party of Crazy. So they want to rein it in on the whole "kook" thing. And according to this Politico article, our own Crazy Michele Bachmann is their No. 1 concern.
Sources say they have been especially wary of the possible damage inflicted on the party's reputation by bomb-throwing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who last fall called for an investigation into whether members of Congress are "pro-America or anti-America."
