There are lots of crackpots in the Republican Party. But you don't see aides dishing backbiting quotes in The Politico trashing any of them. Mr. Steve King doesn't get this treatment. Nor do the various cranks from Georgia or Texas, Mr. Tom m Price, Mr. Paul Broun, Mr. Lynn Westmoreland, Mr. Jack Kingston, Mr. Louie Gohmert, etc., despite the fact they've all said a number of equally boneheaded things. But Ms Michelle Bachmann is apparently subjected to a different standard.
It's true, there's something different about Michelle Bachmann's crankery. I wonder what that could be.
