If batshit crazy Michelle Bachmann were batshit crazy enough to challenge Al Franken for his Senate seat she would be crushed into actual bat shit. (I'm sorry bat guano.)

Courtesy of Public Policy Polling:  

PPP’s new survey of Minnesota voters finds Al Franken comfortably leading all potential challengers. Franken leads Michele Bachmann 55% to 38%. He leads Jason Lewis by 54% to 37%. Franken bests Republican Mike McFadden 51%-36%. He leads Julianne Ortman 52%-35%. Julie Rosen trails Franken 36%-52%. Rounding out the bunch, Rich Stanek faces a 36%-51% deficit against the Senator. 

Franken himself is popular, with a 51% approval rating to 42% disapproval. Bachmann is deeply unpopular, at 34% favorable, 60% unfavorable and 7% not sure. 

“Al Franken has proven to be a pretty popular Senator,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Add to that a relatively weak Republican bench in Minnesota and he’s looking like a clear favorite for reelection.”

Okay look here's the plan.

We need to surreptitiously contact some of the Tea Party groups and convince them that this PPP poll was fixed to show that Bachmann has no chance against Franken because the liberals are afraid that if she ran against him she would beat him hands down. 

Then we simply need to send e-mails of support to Bachmann telling her how she is the ONLY Representative in Minnesota worth a damn and that she should really be in the Senate. (Oh and send some to Marcus telling him that the choices for Senate interns are far cuter than the left over ones that end up working for the Congress.)

Then we need to get a HUGE bowl of popcorn and watch the show, because I cannot think of ANYTHING that I would rather see than Al Franken crushing Michele Bachmann like a crazy eyed bug meeting a semi truck windshield at 60 miles per hour.

No seriously, I think it can work! Don't you?

    That Bachmann quit her ultra conservative Lutheran church to enter politics tells me all I need to know about what is most important to her (self and money) and what a hypocrite she is.

    That she shares our First Lady's name is unfortunate. There IS no comparison on any level.

    I would love to see Bachmann run against Franken. The only people in Minnesota who will vote for Bachmann are the evangelical idiots who live in her gerrymandered district. She definitely does not have a chance statewide. Franken's first election win was settled after a long drawn out recount. The GOP ads against him were full of lies (so what else is new) and he won anyway. Now that he has had time to show Minnesotans that he has their back, the GOP has no one that can stand up to him. Between Franken and Klobuchar, Minnesota has two of the best Senators in the nation.

    Please, please, please...even if she doesn't run against him, can we PLEEEASE have a debate between them anyway??????

  4. Al has done a great job for Minnesota. Him and Amy are the only two Senators that are worth a damn.

      I'll give a much-deserved shout out to my first term senator, Jeff Merkley (D-OR), who's taking on Monsanto/GMO and his constituents that "quietly" passed a no accountability rule for poisoning us. That President Obama signed.

    Can you imagine a debate between Michele Bachmann and Al Franken?

    I've seen Al Franken debate Bill O'Reilly and make him look like a fool! (And Bill is no idiot)

    No kidding - O'Reilly ended up sitting there all pissed off and shouting "shut up! SHUT UP!"

    Michele would find out very quickly that running for Senator of her entire state is quite different than running in her little - highly gerrymandered - 6th congressional district.

    Sadly Shelly won't run against either Al or Amy. She is like the wasilla bully. All talk and no stones. She's running so scared for her own seat right now she's peppering the tv stations with her ad proclaiming she personally passed the bi-partisan bill to knock out Obamacare. She failed to mention that was the 37th time they House had passed the law and it will be the 37th time it won't get past the Senate. Shelly is rapidly fading from influence, even in her own District. I would love to see her take on Al. He'd stomp her like the insignificant bug she is.

      "Elect me, and I'll take away your rights to reasonably priced healthcare while also snooping into your private life and destroying your right to get contraceptives! I'll use all that money I saved from helping you . . . . to help ME!!!"

  7. I'd like to see her run against Mark Dayton for governor. That would be a riot!

    Love to see Shell in the Senate.
    Repeal Obamacare
    Impeach the Kenyan Muslim Marxist

    1. That's some pretty heavy duty delusion there, Anon @ 7:51 AM.

    2. Delusion? That's some warm-up pitches for the Draft Shelly operation Gryph proposes!

    I'm not from Minnesota but I love Al Franken and I think he's been a great senator. He gets my support (financially as well as morally) for re-election in 2014.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
