Another lunatic is considering running for President

Add U.S. Rep.Michele Bachmann to the list of potential Republican presidential hopefuls, as the tea party favorite plans a trip later this month to the early caucusstate of Iowa — and creates possible complications for fellow Minnesotan and maybe-candidateTim Pawlenty.
“Nothing’s off the table for her,”Andy Parrish, Bachmann’s chief of staff, said Wednesday. “She’s looking forward to traveling to Iowa for the fundraiser, and you know, she’s looking forward over the next year to traveling and sharing the story of why we can’t re-electBarack Obama as president.”
Parrish wouldn’t say when Bachmann would decide. But he said her own decision-making process won’t be influenced by those of either Pawlenty or former AlaskaGov. Sarah Palin, whom Bachmann has previously called a good 2012 prospect.
Maybe the two loonies can be on the same ticket.
