Palin Version 2.0: Bachmann will "cash in before she becomes politically irrelevant."



Today's Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Bachmann bows out of House race," May 30

Now that Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's star is waning in Washington, she will do what 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin did and cash in before she becomes politically irrelevant. Watch for the 2012 GOP presidential primary candidate to make millions delivering speeches, becoming a conservative media star with her own television or radio show, writing a book or doing something else lucrative.

It is all very predictable these days — national politics as a stepping stone to great wealth in the partisan celebrity-media circus.

    Saw a bunch of right wingers talking about her running against Al Franken for his Senate seat. OMG! When she can't even handle the work of the House without getting into hot water with her devious handling of campaign money! I think I would like to see that contest. 🙂 🙂

    means Michele won't ride quietly off into the sunset? NOPE—like a
    recurring bad dream crossed with the “Energizer Bunny,” she's
    never-ending—just going and going and going...
