Why is she so famous? Because she made a fool of herself on Hardball a few years back. Not exactly presidential credentials.

And since there’s no such thing as bad press, she used the media coverage to propel herself to the top. But she sits at the top of a bunch of lightweights and President Obama, regardless of how he’s painted in the news, is Muhammad Ali.

If the media stopped sticking microphones in her face, she’d fade right back into political obscurity. But the microphones are here to stay because fear and propaganda sells better than, “Obama is a shoe-in because he doesn’t have a serious contender.”

It doesn’t take much effort to find a right-wing, talking point regurgitator, but have you ever bumped into anyone who truly supports Bachmann? No, of course you haven’t.

This is just rope-a-dope. President Obama is a shoe-in.
