Michele Bachmann's 'typo' says she's running for U.S. Senate

Typo, or tactics?

Typo, or tactics?

AP's Martigal Lohn got a surprise the other day when she signed up to be on Rep. Michele Bachmann's e-mail list: A return address for the "Bachmann for Senate" campaign headquarters in Alexandria, Va.

Later, Lohn tweeted, "Bachmann's campaign manager says the "Bachmann for Senate" return address from a Facebook mailing list signup is a typo."

At least the mailing spelled "Senate " right. A few months ago, you may remember, he campaign website declared her "Amarica's Congresswoman." Leaving aside the obvious geographical hyperbole, how embarrassing is that?
