please proceed Marsha Blackburn

Bachmann 1

To quote President Obama as he watched his presidential opponent Mitt Romney commit political suicide during a debate, "Please proceed," Michele Bachmann. No seriously. Proceed. Please. This country needs a little levity. As Rachel Maddow put it in the above segment, she is the "living, breathing embodiment of the crazy in American politics. It's almost an American pastime to watch Michele Bachmann do her thing."

But Maddow also added, "She's more influential than she gets credit for... She may look like a kooky also-ran all the time, but she also has a way of saying things that stick."

Oh stop being so even-handed and astute, Rachel. You're ruining all our fun.

Via Real Clear Politics:

The Minnesota congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate told RealClearPolitics on Tuesday that she is considering a second White House run.

Bachmann made the revelation during an interview, in which she was asked for her view on whether any Republican women might seek the Oval Office in 2016.

“The only thing that the media has speculated on is that it’s going to be various men that are running,” she replied. “They haven’t speculated, for instance, that I’m going to run. What if I decide to run? And there’s a chance I could run... Like with anything else, practice makes perfect,” she said. “And I think if a person has gone through the process -- for instance, I had gone through 15 presidential debates -- it’s easy to see a person’s improvement going through that.”

There are more quotes from Bachmann at the link.

Arnold Schwarzenegger might challenge foreign-born citizens law to try for presidential run in 2016

Couldn't my former governor [sic] Arnold Schwarzenegger have just left it at "Hasta la vista, baby"? But nooo, he had to go and revive "I'll be back" instead.

I'll be sick.

The Hill:

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) might challenge the law to try and run for president in 2016, according to the New York Post.

The paper said the actor might launch a legal challenge to the section of the Constitution barring foreign-born citizens from becoming commander in chief.

Schwarzenegger was born in Austria and became a U.S. citizen in 1983.

Of course, you just know that hypocritical Republicans would whisper that this sounds like a swell idea from one side of their mouths as the other side accuses President Obama of being an evil commie Marxist fascist socialist illegitimate Kenyan commander in chief.

Approving any amendment to the Constitution, by the way, would require a two-thirds majority in the House and Senate.

But Ahnold doesn't care. According to New York Post, he "has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules."

And things of that nature.
