    Hey, did she ever pay the back pay she stiffed her campaign staff for? (allegedly). Saw she had recently put $85 K or so into a new campaign fund for 2014. Now she won't run again (awwwwwwww, too bad but good riddance!) but it has nothing to do with the ongoing investigation into her ethics and finances, nor that she wouldn't likely beat the Democratic competition this time, nor that she is bat-shit crazy nor has so very little to show for all those terms in Congress?

    How about those federal farm subsidies and Medicare payments she and Lady Bird have been receiving.....despite Michele (with one L) being so vocal about the terrible government economic programs......? I assume she/he will drop them immediately, right? Right?

    yes she will. She was the best recruiter the Democrats have ever had.


    And we thank you just the the same for luminaries such as Al Franken, Sheila Lee Jackson, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and about a 100 others I can think of.

    She didnt want to lose and knew these investigations would probably erase her 1% win in 2012. Losing hurts your talk show possibilities.

    Thank God!

    But I suspect this will be bad news for the dems, as a sane GOP candidate may be a lot easier to get elected. The good news however, is that if a sane GOP candidate is elected,it will be one step toward getting some small degree of functionality back into government, the art of which is reasoned compromise, not faith-based obstinacy and obstruction.

    I will not miss her hate-filled and ill-informed diatribes.

    Since the former half-term governor of Alaska got booted from Faux News I'm
    sure there's a place for Michelle. Replace one nut case with another.

    I'm sure her husband Marcus is delighted, they can now spend more time together.

    I definitely think you should. You can get Rick Santorum to come campaign for you.
