Bachmann: Repeal Obamacare Before It ‘Literally Kills’ People!

Apparently Bachmann couldn’t keep a low profile for long and burst back on the stage with a string of hyperbole and falsehood so outrageous she is being described as the G.O.P.’s Bachmann Problem: People like Bachmann represent everything that is wrong with the Republican Party.

The Completely Accurate 2012 MN Election Prediction Poll

Yesterday I was asked to make some predictions about election contests here in Minnesota. I did that HERE but thought I would turn this into a larger prediction contest so here we go: Take a moment and predict who you believe will win each of the following contests.
