Michelle Bachmann, Minnesota's gift to stand-up comedians and political junkies everywhere, is hanging it up. She's decided not to run again in 2014. She even managed to say with a straight face that it's not because:
(a) she came really, really close to losing in 2012 and she doesn't want to deal with the possibility of losing for real in the next election; orNope, her decision to step down is strictly for personal reasons.
(b) she's under investigation for misuse of campaign funds.
And pigs can fly.
