Michele Bachmann waives Randy Moss too
Michele Bachmann, ever the clever congressional campaigner, wasted no time in finding herself a Vikings No. 84 jersey to honor the return of wide receiver Randy Moss -- and parading around for the cameras.
We assume that the 6th District incumbent is burying that jersey deep in the bowls of her campaign bus now that Randy's been placed on waivers. But just for the record, here's an image of Bachmann riding the bandwagon:
Another Republican hoping to capitalize on the Moss bandwagon? Joel Demos, running a long-shot effort to unseat Rep. Keith Ellison in the 5th District. He spent a lot of emotional and fiscal capital to run one of his ads during Monday Night Football when the Vikings faced off at the Jets.
Flag on the play there, Joel.
