Paddy celebrated this way: NOOOO!!! Minn. Rep. Michele Bachmann says she won’t run for re-election in 2014. And by "celebrated" I mean mourned the loss of one of the easiest comedic targets in political history.

No worries, Paddy, because we can keep pointing and laughing for awhile longer. Check out this Roll Call report:

Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) campaign committee has signed a conciliation agreement with the Federal Election Commission calling for a $8,000 civil penalty for campaign finance violations in her 2010 Congressional campaign.

Her campaign failed to disclose $208,502 in receipts and $206,499 in disbursements.

Memory Lane:

You can see the entire agreement here.
