Bachmann-Thome Overdrive

Over the past few days a couple of interesting things happened.  In Iowa, Michele Bachmann won the Ames Straw Poll in elegant fashion:

…while in Detroit, Jim Thome hit home run number 600 for his career and ruined Delmon Young’s first game as a Tiger:

What do these two events have in common?  Minnesota.  And the fact that they scare me.  I just hope that Bachmann follows in the Twins’ footsteps and slowly dwindles away.




While I do not agree with your conclusion, you have uncovered the picture that Newsweek was looking for.

LOL! Still haven’t made up my mind on Bachman, but the picture with your comment (elegant) had me laughing.


Well Bachman scares the hell out of me, that’s for sure. Although that photo of her corndog-ly submission is laugh out loud funny. Thome only scares you becuase you’re a Tigers fan. Our centerfielder scares Thome and prevented him from reaching the 600 mark two homeruns ago…then again your Tigers are doing better in the standings right now so maybe a little fear is healthy.
