'Tracker Mike' and other tales: Can Bachmann survive toughest test?

Annandale, Minnesota (CNN) - Jim Graves strolled down Main Street in his pressed shirt with French cuffs and skinny jeans, a dapper enigma in a land of flannels and Wranglers. He stuck out his hand to introduce himself to a ruffian in a wheelchair scooter.

The two talked politics before the stranger confessed he's an anarchist who believes Americans should be allowed to kill three people a day. "That would take care of the idiots REALLLLLL fast," the man said with a chuckle.

    I will be more than delighted to see Bachmann lose. She is the kind of person that is wrong with Congress. On another note: IT'S DROP A BOMBSHELL ON WILLARD DAY!!!

    The polarization of America will continue. The divide between rich and poor will increase. The rich will get richer because they will continue to send jobs overseas to improve their profits.The 67% will definitely be ignored by Mr. Romney an we will wait a long time to get richer.. The vast number of charities which work tirelessly to help people will falter because those at the top are not willing to give their fair share.

    Ms. Bachmann was the sweetheart of the anti-tax people. The last two years have been terrible for anyone who wished to see Congress work on our behalf. They were mighty good at sitting on their hands and accepting their paychecks which we all funded. All of those who came to Washington because of Tea Party support should be ousted. Those members of Congress who produced nothing and barely worked should be defeated at the polls. Will we do it, probably not. We are too busy watching the magic show that Mr. Romney is doing. We are allowing him to say he has a 5 point plan yet he has never shown it to us. In fact, he has not shown us anything including his tax receipts and he never really will.

    Do Anarchists know that the real idiots are those who do not know 1st John 3: 15 "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life" they have missed the Street of God (Revelation 21: 21).

    "a businessman who made millions by accommodating guests at his hotels versus a politician who Fox News host Sean Hannity has described as one of the women most feared by liberals in America."

    Sean Hannity is just too uppity for words. No one in Minnesota "fears" Bachmann. Yes, we laugh at her ignorance. Yes, we feel she isn't best serving her 6th District. Yes, we think she is a flake. But, no ... no one in Minnesota "fears" Michele Bachmann.

    Could this be the end for Michelle? Will the people of the 6th District finally realize that the person they sent to Congress to represent them spent more time following her failed dream of a Presidential nomination than she did actually attending committee meetings and voting? Will they finally realize that she is one of the few members of the House who has never sponsored any legislation that made it out of committee? Basically, if she weren't so loud, her lack of accomplishments would classify her as a "Back Bencher" in Parliament, or the Roman Senate – someone who's presence and votes were tolerated, but who was only allowed to talk when called upon. Here is hoping that she can start collecting her Congressional Pension as of January 3, 2013!

    Anyone who still thinks this woman is worthy of running for political office is a bigger than she is.
    Minnesota deserves so much better than the flake.
